We’re committed to harnessing the therapeutic potential of the latest innovations in applied neuroscience to help our patients feel better from the inside out. Our Neuro Therapy services for Peak Performance, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Mental Health Issues, and Addiction have helped many people experience optimal mental health and lasting recovery.
At Sun Health, Neuro Therapy consists of a combination of neurofeedback and neuromodulation that uses cutting-edge technology to:
- help executives, performers, athletes, and others overcome issues that may be keeping them from progressing in their career and/or relationships or from experiencing better quality of life. (Learn more about our Peak Performance services.)
- rehabilitate the brain in the aftermath of TBI and relieve associated symptoms. (Find out how TBI Neurorehab can help you or a loved one.)
- alleviate mental health symptoms and speed recovery from anxiety, depression (including treatment-resistant depression), and a wide variety of other conditions. (Explore the full range of Mental Health Issues that we can treat with Neuro Therapy.)
- administer effective addiction recovery that addresses the core issues of brain dysregulation that contribute to substance abuse. (Find out more about Neuro Therapy for Addiction.)

Neuro Therapy Services That We Use
Most Neuro Therapy treatment plans at SHC consist of an individualized blend of neuromodulation and neurofeedback, using a cutting-edge system known as NeuroField. NeuroField was invented by our Director of Neuro Therapy Services Dr. Nicholas Dogris, Ph.D., BCN, QEEG-D. The system combines pulsed electromagnetic fields (pEMF) and transcranial alternating/direct current stimulation (tDCD/tACS) with EEG neurofeedback to optimize brain function.
Neurofeedback is a process of training the brain to function better, by rewarding the brain when it changes its activity to align with desired brainwave patterns. Today neurofeedback exists in many forms as a standalone treatment for various issues and conditions. At SHC, we’ve found it to be most effective and exhibit quicker results when we administer it in combination with neurostimulation (via the Neurofield system). We often introduce neurofeedback after a few initial sessions of neurostimulation, which helps to prime the brain for greater plasticity and the positive changes we’ll be encoding via neurofeedback.
Neuromodulation, also known as “neurostimulation,” consists of different types of electric or electro-magnetic stimulation that we can customize to help individual clients improve their brain and body function.
Types of Neuromodulation
We typically use the following types of neuromodulation:
- tACS stands for “transcranial alternating current stimulation.” Using two electrical currents, it can send electrical currents through targeted parts of the brain and body, in order to change and optimize their behavior.
- tDCS, or “transcranial direct current stimulation,” is a type of electrical stimulation that can aid in the treatment of many mental and physical issues. In response to tDCS, the brain produces an overabundance of calcium ions. These are what create a state of optimal neuroplasticity: an ideal state in which to administer neurofeedback and pEMF conditioning.
- tRNS refers to “transcranial random noise stimulation,” an alternating electrical current similar to white noise that can therapeutically target specific regions of the brain where there may be dysfunction or stuck patterns. The current that passes back and forth at a desired frequency between two electrodes can increase brain plasticity and jumpstart new regeneration in that area.
- pEMF – “Pulsed electro-magnetic field stimulation” is another type of electrostimulation, also known as “pulsed electro-magnetic field therapy.” pEMF changes how neurons fire in the brain. It does this by generating an electro-magnetic field that flows through the body, delivering a desired, low-intensity frequency and rhythm. The brain then responds by mimicking the rhythm.
Neuro Therapy Near Me
Despite its positive performance in multiple clinical studies and its relatively widespread use in Europe, Australia, and other parts of the world, Neuro Therapy can be harder to access in the United States. At SHC, we’re determined to help more people in need reap the benefits of this revolutionary treatment that’s changing brains and improving lives.
