Neurofeedback in Colorado
A safe, effective treatment, neurofeedback restores your body to its natural balance
Your brain is adaptive and can correct itself and self-regulate with neurofeedback training. If you’re suffering from pain, anxiety, or certain illnesses, neurofeedback may be the answer for you.
Neurofeedback is a noninvasive, intrinsic learning process that trains your brain to restore its normal function by normalizing your brain’s electrical activity. We offer our neurofeedback training program at our Denver (Lakewood) office, under the supervision of Dr. Penny Montgomery, a pioneer and author in the field of neurofeedback.About Dr. Penny

Neurofeedback Helps Children Learn
Children who have not been diagnosed with a learning or behavior disorder nevertheless may not demonstrate their full learning potential in school. There are many factors that can impair learning– including head injuries, blood sugar problems, and history of infections or fevers. Sometimes children need assistance learning how to focus. All children can potentially benefit from the neurofeedback training program offered at Healing Unleashed. Currently, we train many children each week. The children enjoy the program and participate with eagerness in learning to control their own brainwaves. Children love the instant rewards. Every time they hear the bell ring they know they are accomplishing the learning task. Kids also love to watch their brain activity on the computer screen. They can see immediately when their brain is producing more efficient brainwaves. The majority of children learn better, at a faster pace, with more comprehension and more retention of facts when given appropriate neurofeedback training. Your child can perform better in school and enjoy learning. Your child’s self-confidence will improve.

We look forward to serving you.
Give your child a better life…Neurofeedback helps ADHD
To date, worldwide, several research studies have compared neurofeedback training to drug therapy in the treatment of ADHD. Neurofeedback has been shown to significantly help children who suffer this disorder. Investigations of spectral activity in the electroencephalogram (EEG) of ADHD patients have consistently reported an abnormal abundance of slow frequencies, especially over the frontal area of the brain. Drug therapy does not correct this slow wave activity, but neurofeedback training does. Neurofeedback training restores good, efficient brainwave activity. Neurofeedback improves distribution of the brain’s energy making it more ideal. It reduces inefficient slow waves, helping the brain to communicate with itself more effectively. Neurofeedback helps your brain produce more of the good sensorimotor rhythms and the good beta rhythms that enable your child to learn. Dr. Penny Montgomery, the neurofeedback trainer at Healing Unleashed has trained hundreds of children with ADHD disorder. These children achieve better study habits, learn to focus, and perform better in school. These children present fewer behavior problems and need less discipline. Other symptoms like anxiety or headache are also improved. Call Healing Unleashed and attend one of our free monthly seminars to learn more about Real Time Digital EEG Neurofeedback.

Your brain plays a role in strong immunity.
A high-stress life means you endure considerable suppression of immune function. Can a run-down immune system be helped by neurofeedback training? The simple clinical answer is…yes, because neurofeedback can assist the brain to handle stress. Over its 50 year history, biofeedback has proven that people can gain significant control over stress physiology. Neurofeedback shows we can also diminish the perception of stress. The brain communicates with the immune system. When brainwave activity is maladaptive, the brain’s ability to handle stress may be diminished. Healthier electrical activity in the brain enables you to better handle stressful situations. This means fewer occurrences of the stress response and more preservation of immune response.

Are you depressed? Neurofeedback can help.
There are many types of depression and many causes. Major depressive disorder interferes with with a person’s ability to work, sleep, study, and maintain healthy relationships. An all-digital, real time EEG biofeedback evaluation can show whether or not your brainwave activity is normal. The brainwave in depressive disorders can show several mal-adaptations such as: slow waves, low amplitude beta, and abnormal brainwave patterns. These abnormal patterns can be corrected through real-time neurofeedback using Neuropathways EEG Imaging technology.

Neurofeedback: The Way to Brain Wellness
The brain whispers messages to the body through electrical impulses transmitted via the central nervous system. Injuries, illness, pharmaceuticals, surgeries, blood sugar problems, infections and many other conditions can create abnormal brain wave. When the body continues to transmit these abnormal rhythms, imbalances are created in the body. These imbalances show-up as disturbances in function. Sensory function such as vision and hearing could be affected. Motor functions such as balance, motor control and speech could be affected. Autonomic functions are also affected…such as sleep, pain perception, and blood pressure. Mental functions are frequently affected and problems can arise such as anger, moodiness, inability to concentrate and poor memory. Neurofeedback training proves the body’s ability to self-regulate and bring itself back into balance. It offers you the opportunity to participate in your own health.

How does neurofeedback work?
The brain “whispers” messages to the body through electrical impulses transmitted within the central nervous system. Sometimes these electrical impulses (brain-waves) are disturbed, creating abnormal rhythmic patterns. When your brain continues to fire in these abnormal patterns, habitual firing patterns create symptoms in your body. Since the body naturally desires balance, neurofeedback merely helps the brain bring itself and the body back into balance.
With the neurofeedback equipment we use at our Denver (Lakewood) office, electrical activity from the brain is amplified and projected on a computer screen as it occurs. This real-time feedback enables immediate and precise interpretation of your brain-wave patterns.
Our neurofeedback coaches use Neuropathways™, the all-digital, real-time neurofeedback training program developed by Dr. Margaret E. Ayers. The electrical activity is recorded using scalp sensors, and advanced computer software allows us to see your brain-wave activity on a computer screen.
Does neurofeedback hurt?
To see your brain-wave patterns on the computer screen, we connect sensors, using conductive paste, to specific sites on your scalp. Sensors are placed strategically to record specific areas of your brain. Nothing goes into the body. The process is non-invasive and not painful at all.
How do I train my brain during neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is one of the most compelling examples of the body’s ability to self-regulate and bring itself back into balance. It allows you to participate in your own health.
The high-speed neurofeedback equipment displays electrical patterns produced by your brain. Two of the most significant patterns are beta (fast) waves and theta (slow waves that ranges from 4 to 7 cycles a second). Generally, your goal is to inhibit excessive theta wave patterns and lower their amplitude. The computer helps you recognize normal patterns by producing audio and visual reinforcement when they occur. Your brain makes the appropriate corrections immediately.
The results of the training are permanent unless future injury occurs. Once your brain’s normal patterns have been restored, neurofeedback training is no longer necessary. The effects of neurofeedback training are like training wheels on a bicycle. Once you learn to balance by yourself, the training wheels are no longer needed.
Can neurofeedback help my symptoms?
Neurofeedback helps to improve functions such as concentration, short-term memory, speech, motor skills, sleep, energy level, and emotional balance. This learning process can improve function significantly when the following diagnoses are present:
- aggressive behavior
- Asperger’s syndrome
- immune dysfunction
- migraine headaches
- Parkinson’s disease
- peak performance
- post-stroke symptoms
- traumatic brain injury (concussions)

Notes of gratitude for Dr. Montgomery and neurofeedback
“I struggled with an uncommon sleep disorder after a 25 foot fall from a roof. Central sleep apnea is a disorder in which my breathing repeatedly stops and starts nearly 60 times each hour during sleep. Central sleep apnea, unlike obstructive sleep apnea, occurs because the brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. Besides not getting a restful sleep, the limited oxygen level is unhealthy for brain cell structure.
A sleep study at altitude in Summit County confirmed my need to continue with the use of a VPAP device to assist sleep breathing which I had used for 18 months during sleep. The nightly use of the machine was becoming uncomfortably difficult and inconvenient with travel, and I looked for an alternative treatment. After an initial evaluation by Dr. Penny Montgomery of the Healing Unleashed, LLC homeopathic medical services, I started a series in retraining my brain using the Neurofeedback system. Ten EEG biofeedback trainings directed to different brain function areas, and specifically my brain stem as it was suspect from the major impact from the fall, created an amazing result. Oxygen saturation tests during sleep at both Denver and Winter Park altitudes, confirmed by my sleep disorder doctor, were satisfactory and I was able to discontinue the use of the VPAP machine. The neurofeedback training had returned my brain activity to normal nightly sleep breathing without the aid of a machine. What a great blessing! — Dale Brown, Denver, CO, August 2011
