Millions of people in the United States suffer from insomnia every year. Most turn to sleeping pills and the side effects that come with them, but Nashville BrainCore Neurofeedback provides an insomnia treatment without medication. Our approach works because we target the underlying causes of your insomnia.
Insomnia can be caused by any of several factors, including stress related to a life change like losing a job, getting divorced, the death of a loved one, or any other stressful event. Some medications can cause insomnia, especially those used to treat depression, colds, allergies, high blood pressure, and asthma. Depression and anxiety can also cause insomnia.
For best results, neurofeedback should be used without medication. If you're currently taking medications, our goal is to work with your prescribing doctor to reduce or eliminate your need for drugs.
Types of insomnia

There are also two time-based classifications for insomnia. Acute insomnia lasts for a short time, ranging from one night to a few weeks. Chronic insomnia can last for much longer.
