Dr. Lartin offers neurofeedback training, a natural approach to restoring the nervous system to its original, balanced state. Neurofeedback training is a pleasant, noninvasive approach to health and well-being.
A combination of information from the person’s brainwaves, computer software and music give feedback to the brain. This results in clients feeling less stressed, calmer, and capable of clearer thinking. This training is useful to people who experience chronic stress, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, PTSD, irritability, and attention-related difficulties, among many other psychological and physical disorders. Most clients are able to reduce, avoid or finish a course of medication such as those used for depression, anxiety and attention problems. Depending on the situation, Dr. Lartin may recommend using neurofeedback in conjunction with counseling, medical evaluations and/ or lifestyle changes to achieve an optimum state of health.
To benefit from this training, all the person has to do is sit back, listen to music and enjoy the experience. Go to Directory Of NeurOptimal Practitioners for links to sites providing further information.
Since brainwaves and personal patterns change together, changing brainwave patterns through neurofeedback creates an opportunity for these stuck patterns to drop away. Additional applications for neurofeedback include peak performance training and help towards recovery for people with head injuries, fatigue and strokes.
In the spring of 2012, Dr. Lartin’s 21 year old son Brian was hit by a car that ran a stop sign. Brian was riding a motorcycle and wearing a helmet, and he suffered life threatening injuries, most critically a traumatic brain injury (TBI.) This 5 minute video summarizes the use of NeurOptimal in helping Brian recover his cognitive and physical capabilities:
