About Dr Big Brain

Neurofeedback therapy to retrain the brain.

At Dr Big Brain, we specialize in an innovative approach to diagnosis and treatment for a wide array of emotional, behavioral, learning, and cognitive issues for children, teenagers, and adults. We utilize Neurofeedback which is a unique drugless approach to addressing brainwave imbalance.

Neurofeedback is a guided exercise for the brain. A learning modality designed to retrain dysregulated brainwave patterns. The goal of all Neurofeedback is to transform a dysregulated brainwave imbalance into a normal, regulated, organized pattern. By doing this, the brain becomes more stable and is able to operate optimally and efficiently.

It is completely non-invasive and considered safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

We launched Dr Big Brain to help you regain your life and offer a ray of hope when life seems hopeless. We have almost 30 years of Chiropractic and mental health experience - all to equip you with the ability to retrain your brain. We will walk you through every step of the process to make it simple, understandable, and effective.
