What is MCN?
Micro Current Neurofeedback, or MCN is a safe, non-invasive, painless and revolutionary technology that utilizes an EEG unit with low-intensity pulses of energy to support the central nervous system.
Conditions IASIS MCN Treats
Disturbances in brain function can come from a variety of insults: physical or emotional trauma, toxins, infections, lying beliefs, and stress. These disturbances can result in dysfunctional and/or rigid patterns of thought, impaired cognition, or misperception.
As a consequence, we can experience (*neither list is exhaustive):
Mental Health Challenges:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Body dysmorphic disorder
- Eating disorders
- Sleep disorders – Fatigue
- ADD – ADHD
- Test anxiety
- Post-concussion syndrome
- Neurodegenerative conditions (dementia or Parkinson’s disease)
- Headache (including migraine)
- Chronic pain
- Cardiovascular disease (hypertension, coronary artery disease, and peripheral vascular disease)
- Chronic Lyme disease/Post-Lyme syndrome
- Hormonal imbalances
- Immune dysfunction and dysregulation (recurrent or chronic infections and autoimmunity)
Iasis is the first neurofeedback system with image-based evidence of success. In 2017, a pilot study evaluating its use in treating post-concussive symptoms (PCS) resulting from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) was published in the journal, Brain Injury. This study was a joint effort between the University of California at San Diego and the Veteran’s Administration. It used standardized clinical interviews, validated questionnaires, and magnetoencephalography (a technology combining EEG and MRI) to evaluate the response to Iasis treatment of six subjects suffering PCS after mTBI.
Significant improvement was noted in all of the subjects and in all evaluated parameters who completed the treatments. One of the subjects was able to quit nicotine use, a benefit he attributed to the treatment. One subject was not diligent in treatment schedule and only completed 30% of his treatments. Despite his non-compliance, he still received benefit evidenced in evaluated parameters.
How many sessions will I need?
Many clients, approximately 85%, have noticed positive changes within three sessions, sometimes a few more. The most effective plan with sustained results, depending on the clients’ conditions, includes up to 10-20 sessions. Upon post treatment most clients do not need further sessions but may require a refresher for continued positive results.
