B.A.U.D. & Alpha Stim
Biofeedback instruments measure physiological responses to stress and stimuli. The responses are "fed-back" back to you via a computer screen. By observing your physiology in real-time, you can become more in-touch with you body. More importantly, your mind-body connection.
Biofeedback is for most ages. Children enjoy playing games with thier heart-rate patterns and watching movies powered by thier brainwave patterns!
Alpha-Stim technology is a biofeedback device that allows relief from pain, depression, anxiety, and insomnia by increasing your brain's Alpha frequency. 9/10 individuals report experiencing significant improvement in symptoms, some in just minutes.
The Bio Acoustical Utilization Device (B.A.U.D.) is another non-invasive biofeedback device that assists in self-regulation training to improve difficulties associated with anxiety, cravings, PTSD, etc. B.A.U.D. has been shown to effectively assist Neurotherapy.
EEG (Electroencephalography) is the measurement of the brain's electrical activity at the scalp. Yes! Our brains produce electricity! EEG is recorded, analyzed, edited and quantified into a QEEG (BrainMap) by a trained professional.
QEEG analysis provide the information about your brainwave patterns to help guide your Neurofeedback training.
Neurofeedback, or Neurotherapy, or EEG Biofeedback is Biofeedback specifically for the brain. By measuring brainwave frequencies, specialized software determines the "normalization" of these patterns. When a desired frequency is present, or when an undesired frequency is not present, the client will recieve a "reward". In most cases while watching a movie, the picture will become brighter and the volume louder. Neurofeedback is a learning technique and is based off of learning theory's operant conditioning.

Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately "feed back" information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.

Lindsay Hollmuller M.S., LPC, BCN, NCC has over a decade of experience working with individuals using biofeedback techniques. Lindsay is a Board Certified Associate Fellow by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). During her graduate training at SMU, Lindsay’s interest in combining counseling psychology with neuroscience and applied physiology led her to seek specialized training in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback from The University of North Texas. Lindsay has worked for several years in a variety of mental health, medical, rehabilitation and educational settings in Oklahoma, Florida, and Texas. As a leader in the Biofeedback community, Lindsay provides education, mentoring and training to others seeking BCIA certification. Lindsay also serves on the Executive Board for the Biofeedback Society of Texas.
