How We Help Your Brain
Dr. Doreen McMahon combines EEG neurofeedback/ neurotherapy and thoughtful medical practice for optimal performance of the brain. Her practice relies on developing flexible, individual protocols personalized for each patient to address various brain-based concerns and encourage peak mental performance.
Our clients seek alternatives to mainstream medical care.
Conventional therapies may have been partially or not effective. Side effects may have been unacceptable. Clinical visits have been limited to 15 minute consults. You may have been told that “nothing more could be done.” At Nova NeuroIntegrative Medicine, you will find a physician who listens carefully, guides implementation of new behaviors, and collaborates with you and your other health professionals to deal with health issues.
What is Neurotherapy / Neurofeedback?
We aid our patients in identifying the modalities that may help them the most. We have found that neurotherapy or EEG neurofeedback is frequently an excellent starting point for improving brain performance. Neurotherapy relies on computers and specially designed software to help adults and children train themselves from their usual brain activity patterns to those that are more appropriate. These new patterns translate into improvements in behavior, perception, and emotional wellbeing in everyday life. By evaluating the brain with help from advanced technology, we work with you to help you better understand symptoms. We show you how to use the natural plasticity of the nervous system to best cope with new ailments and chronic challenges.
NOVA NeuroIntegrative Medicine, PLC in McLean, Virginia is committed to helping you live healthier lives. Our professionalism, understanding, and support are individually tailored to address the specific situation of each of our clients.
What Else Should I Know?
Can Integrative Medicine Help Me?
Integrative medicine can help address many different conditions that involve regulation by the brain.
These can include: attention problems (ADD/ADHD), behavior disorders, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, migraines, headaches, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), bipolar illness, chronic pain, epilepsy and seizures, autistic spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, reactive attachment disorder, brain injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, eating disorders, learning disabilities, obsessive-compulsive problems (OCD), and recovery from concussions, strokes or other brain injuries.
In addition, our protocols can enhance neuroregulation of chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension (HTN), asthma, gastroesophageal reflux syndrome (GERD or heartburn), irritable bowel syndrome, and circulatory problems.
