Today the web-based newspaper The Daily published a front-page article on Infra-Low Frequency Neurofeedback in application to PTSD. Along with the article there is also a six-minute video that illustrates the training procedure and basic approach. Reporter Katie Drummond did her homework on this topic over a number of months, finally coming out to our office from New York and showing up at our office with a video crew in order to try the training herself and to get acquainted with the principals.
Following this introduction you’ll find the first paragraph of the feature article and a link to read the full article and watch the video. The piece is best viewed on the iPad application of The Daily, where the whole feature is more integrated. (The Daily is available by subscription, but a two-week free trial is available for the iPad.)
This kind of publicity for our non-profit organization Homecoming for Veterans will no doubt lead to many new inquiries for Neurofeedback services. We urge Neurofeedback practitioners to help in this cause by offering free Neurofeedback services to our veterans. Details can be found on our website, hc4v.org
