Many of our clients have had tremendous results with Neurofeedback! Check out what they think about their treatment at our center:


A Child Diagnosed with PTSD and Bipolar Disorder

As a young boy, my grandson was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar disorder. He was hospitalized at least twice a year from the age of six until he was eleven years old. He was placed in private schools because he was unable to function in a public school After a severe bout of depression and another hospitalization, he was put on Lithium. This cause kidney, thyroid, and liver shutdown. At that point, I had had it with meds.

After searching on the computer, I came across Boston Neurofeedback. I called them and made an appointment. Dr. Myer and David Myer did a brain mapping and the question about his bipolar diagnosis began. During neurofeedback treatment, Dr. Myer noticed something about his sleep pattern and suggested a sleep study for pediatric obstructive sleep disorder. Sleep apnea in children can cause mood swings.My 300 pound grandson did have sleep apnea. Later, it was determined that he had problems with his adenoids and one enlarged tonsil. That was his so-called “bipolar.”

Today my grandson is medication free and has lost all of his excess weight. He has had no hospitalizations since he has been off his meds. In fact, there is no bipolar! If it weren’t for Dr. Myer and David, he would have led a disastrous life. Instead, he is a normal, happy kid.


An Individual Diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety

“There have been some traumas in my life. Some more significant than others. But I never felt that mine were worse than anyone else’s and that they were things I needed to just get over and deal with. I had been to see psychologists and hypnotherapists but they never really made any permanent difference in how I felt.

The doctors diagnosed me as having depression and extreme anxiety and put me on an antidepressant. For a while it seemed to work. But I still drank too much and was not a nice person when I did. Then I hit a point where I would wake up every night for about 2 hours, usually between 2 am and 4 am. Made my work day feel very long and left me constantly exhausted. This went on for about 5 months. My Daughter had been to see Boston Neurofeedback and had great results. She told me it was time to try something else because nothing else was working and my family was at the point where they were afraid to talk to me. My temper was out of control.

So I went to see Anita and her staff. They were very sympathetic, professional and patient with me. About halfway through my treatment I began to feel EXTREMELY exhausted. More than usual. It occurred to me that if I was getting better but still taking the antidepressants maybe they were working against me. So I went to the doctor and showed him my results and he agreed that we should try going off the prescription and see what happens.

3 days after stopping the drugs I woke up extremely refreshed. Most importantly I felt much LIGHTER. I felt the way I did when I was younger, like the person I used to be. I thought I would never see that person again. I am so thankful to Anita and her staff for helping my brain find its way back to the way it is supposed to be. Many months later I still feel wonderful and there is no problem I can’t solve and my day to day responsibilities are no longer overwhelming.

From the bottom of my heart and from my loving family, Thank you so much Boston Neurofeedback”


An Individual Who Suffered an Accident

I did not want to simply disappear after the remarkable treatment you two have provided. When I compare my present energy and outlook to when I first came to you, I am overwhelmed by the positive changes in spite of a debilitating accident. My medications for depression are down by about half and my mood and energy are up there where a human-being’s ought to be! At 87, I am launching a new program to help people realize more of their creative potential. It has a way to go, but it promises to be the best thing I have ever done! I am forever grateful to you, Anita, for your knowledge and skill in deciding how to wire me up, and to you, David, for all the remarkable information you passed on as you treated me. What a wonderful pair you are! With Warmest best wishes for you in your new adventure, G


An Individual Struggling with OCD

“Sorry it took so long to follow up with you, busy summer and all. Just wanted to thank you so much for getting me in your office and seeing me every day. I just wanted to say within one week after the neurofeedback, my OCD disappeared completely. I am so much calmer and relaxed and I have not felt this good in a very long time, I’m much happier and no more depressions either. Well have a great rest of the summer. Thank you Anita and David !!!!!!”


An Individual Struggling with Stress, Anxiety and Sleep Difficulties

I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Von Hipple Lindeau disease and I have been managing them both well for over 20 years. Recently a colleague suggested that I have a consult with Dr. Myer at the Boston Neurofeedback Center to address stress and anxiousness. After a very thorough interview and assessment Dr. Myer noted that a lack of adequate sleep was contributing to the stress and anxiousness I was experiencing. She recommended 10 weeks of twice weekly treatment. I have now completed the twice weekly 10 weeks. My sleep as improved greatly, I am noticeably less stressed and less anxious. I also notice improved concentration and better focus at work and overall. A very nice side effect of improve sleep is no more dark circles under my eyes. What a perk!


From A College Student’s Parent

Hi Anita,

Just thought you might be interested in [our daughter’s] grades for this semester. She got 2 A’s, 1 A- and a C- for the 4 courses she took at Salem State. That’s a REMARKABLE difference from her grades at Stonehill. Thank you again for all you and David have done.

Thank You…

From A Child’s Perspective

We couldn’t have said this better ourselves, and are thrilled to share this adorable letter one of our patients wrote to their “HMO”.

“Dear HMO, I am very sad, please help me. I do not want to stop going to Dr. Myer. I do not want to see my mommy cry. I like Dr. Myer. She helps me a lot. And I don’t get yelled at in school. I don’t need special reading anymore. Please help me to keep being good!!!! M”


A Family’s Experience

My family experienced years and years of living in a ‘/walking on eggshells/’ environment which eventually resulted in a horrific abusive escalation.
The results caused my family to feel anxiety, depression, high irritability, inattentiveness, excessive negative behavioral issues, PTSD, sleeplessness,
learning disabilities; all resulting in low self-esteem.

I spent approximately five years trying to locate a solution to heal my family’s issues.  Through trial and error we tried therapy, psychiatry and antidepressants.  I was at my wits end and completely desperate as I observed my children suffering with all of these ailments.  I decided to listen
to the Dr. Phil Show, and I flew my children to the PsychoNeuroPlasticity Center in Texas which is where Dr. Phil directs some of the guests on his show.  It was through this organization that I learned about Neurofeedback.

Once again, through trial and error, I was desperate for answers.  We were all treated with kindness, calmness, patience, and a great level of intelligence as we experienced the latest technology at *Boston Neurofeedback Ctr., PC* in *Woburn, MA*. A series of appointments were
required to change the pathways in our brains which were altered over the years and years of being exposed to the environment in our home.

Over the course of a few weeks, as we relaxed in the comfort of their office, we all began to feel the return of our inner happiness, and an inner sense of well-being.  I observed the self-confidence return in my children as well.  We have experienced permanent changes without side effects or
the need to use medications.

Anita and David Myer are pioneers in brain technology.  Their kindness, encouraging words and their ability to make us all feel welcomed were what gave my family their inner strength back.

I highly recommend *Boston Neurofeedback*;  they are results oriented and an honest team who will let you know up front if the technology will or will not help your family.
