Cold Laser Therapy with Neurofeedback
Cold Laser Therapy is an integral part of the BrainCore Therapy System. Cold laser involves the application of low level concentrated light. Unlike high-power medical laser, which are widely used to safely cut and remove tissue, the Low Level Laser penetrates the surface of the skin with no heating effect or damage. Low level cold laser has been used to control pain and facilitate healing of soft tissue, however, it has also been proven to be effective in helping people quit smoking. This is because the light introduced using a cold laser, stimulates nerve bundles triggering the brain to release endorphins which calm the nervous system.
Endorphins trigger the pleasure centers in the brain creating the release of the feel good hormones such as dopamine and serotonin. This acts as a positive reinforcement of the neurofeedback training. It is completely non invasive and painless. By associating the training with what the brain considers a positive experience (the release of endorphins); the training session is reinforced producing a stronger effect for the patient. The patient responds much quicker to the BrainCore Therapy when the BrainCore Cold Laser is part of the treatment. The BrainCore Therapy System is the ONLY neurofeedback training system that incorporates cold laser treatment as part of the neurofeedback training protocol. This may explain the superior results the BrainCore System is able to achieve.
"After experiencing extreme anxiety and debilitating fatigue, I was referred to Dr. Stephanie Rimka for neurofeedback. The atmosphere was kind and supportive. After a couple months, my anxiety and fatigue were improving by leaps and bounds. Still to this day, a year and half later, my work at Brain & Body Solutions has lasted, and I feel better than I have in years."

I have referred several of my clients to Dr. Rimka for neurofeedback. In conjunction with my therapy, the clients who have completed neurofeedback, have, in my opinion, experienced increased insight and happiness. They have also experienced a decrease in depression, anxiety, dissociation, negative thoughts, and insomnia.
I wish all my clients were willing to incorporate neurofeedback into their treatment.

Like many of her patients, I came to Dr. Stephanie with a complex set of problems—autoimmune disease, insomnia, fatigue, and depression...Dr. Stephanie is knowledgeable in many areas, including women’s health, and her counsel was very beneficial. My health improved, my mental state improved, and I looked forward to every session.

I had been diagnosed with complex PTSD. I was unable to focus and felt like my life was over. She was patient, kind, went over and beyond what any other provider ever has. Finally, I have shifted and turned a corner in my life. I believe in myself again and ready to face the world with a much more resilient attitude. Her strong and loving presence is a gift and her commitment to her patients is unwavering. I only wish I had met her when I was much younger but like she says, 'It's never too late to become what you might have been.'

Just wanted to thank you for the work you did with me last time I was home. What a beautiful gift you gave me - you gave me my creativity back! My spirit is definitely lighter and happier to be around!
It is very difficult to put into words exactly how instrumental Dr. Rimka has been in helping my son work through his challenges...Despite being very intelligent, he was so anxious that panic attacks were very common to the point he couldn’t even speak...The gratitude and love that we have for them can never be expressed. I will be bringing my entire family to Dr. Rimka, and I highly recommend her to my clients, friends, and family.

Emotionally things feel different since our work together. I feel a certain calmness around decisions, and that's nice! Spiritually I notice my thoughts changing to more positive, inspired ones without even consciously trying. Thank you so much for helping me find myself again.
- Cindy, Retired
I feel great today! In fact, I've never felt better.
I don't know what you did, but you did wonders. Thank you!
