Neurofeedback for Insomnia

This West Hartford article about the use of neurofeedback for child and adult insomnia features Connecticut neurofeedback trainer Rae Tattenbaum.

I know Rae through her use of NeurOptimal®, the state of the art neurofeedback system that I use in my practice.

Here's a quote from the article:
A good night’s sleep is an essential ingredient for good health. However, more than 30 percent of people battle some level of insomnia. What’s worse, sleep deprivation causes a long list of other problems, including an increased risk of obesity and inability to focus during the day. A National Sleep Foundation Poll shows that 60 percent of people have driven while feeling sleepy and 37 percent admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel in the past year. The good news is that many people are finding relief from an unconventional, non-invasive therapy.
Makes you think twice about getting in a car driven by a tired person, doesn't it? The "unconventional, non-invasive therapy" the article refers to is, of course, neurofeedback.

Rae is also known for her peak performance work with atheletes, performers and others.
