Neurofeedback: Optimize Your Brain
- Are you not getting the full results from medications or dislike the side effects?
- Can you visualize what you want out of life, but consistently get derailed from negative self-talk, anxiety or fear?
- Do you wake up in the morning with negative feelings?
- Do you or your child have problems with focus or impulsivity?
- Did you ever suffer from a concussion?
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a form of brainwave training which teaches the brain to work at its fullest capacity, to switch gears as needed for the task at hand. Neurofeedback has been used successfully with children as young as 18 months to adults over 90 years old.

Ways we can help you be healthier and happier
We recognize the importance of diet for the health of not only the body, but the mind. This integrative approach is based on numerous scientific studies, and it can bring dramatic positive results.
For example, it is well known that mood is greatly affected by what is going on in the digestive tract. Spices such as saffron, cinnamon, and turmeric have many beneficial properties, including alleviating depression and boosting the immune system. Using a high quality sea salt as a seasoning will help replenish the minerals that have been leached from the soil due to mechanized farming. A diet of mostly fresh, raw foods will provide the living enzymes necessary to deliver these nutrients to your body’s cells.
Achieve Medical Center is pleased to announce that we are now offering Ketamine therapy to our menu of services offered, including intranasal ketamine.
What is Ketamine? Ketamine is a FDA approved anesthetic drug that is used to relieve depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and chronic pain syndromes. Ketamine has been shown to provide rapid- acting anti-depressant effects with low-dose infusions. It has been associated with quick improvement in depressive symptoms, with results lasting days to weeks. Ketamine may improve your symptoms of depression, but these effects may not be long-lasting.
A Psycho-Educational Evaluation provides a comprehensive overview of a child’s functioning in the school, including the following domains: cognitive, processing, academic, and social skills as well as a summary of the child’s emotional well-being and learning strengths. Psycho-Educational Evaluations include a thorough explanation of how the child’s strengths and learning patterns can be applied in the school setting to improve performance, social relations and positive adjustment.
