Long Island Biofeedback and Hypnosis was founded by Charles Brody in 1993 to help people in our area to manage their pain and health conditions.
Charles Brody, M.Ed., M.A., Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Hypnotherapist & Biofeedback Specialist (National Guild of Hypnotists).
Charles Brody received his masters in Psychology and Education from Columbia University. He received intensive individual training in the use of Neurofeedback for Attention Deficit Disorder from Joel Lubar Ph.D, (Considered the pioneer and world’s leading expert in Neurofeedback applications for ADD/ADHD).
He has been providing EEG Biofeedback and Traditional Biofeedback for the past 20 years and has been a guest lecturer in this field. He considers his approach as a combination of unique elements from the fields of cognitive and behavioral psychology as well a humanistic orientation. “Just below the thin veneer of our pains, anxieties, fears and negative self-images, lives the powerful entity of who we really are. Contained within us all is a limitless potential for self-healing and emotional well-being.”
Our mission statement can be best said in one word “SELF EMPOWERMENT”. Many of us in life have unfortunately concluded that we have no power, especially when it comes to our own health and well being. If we feel physically or emotionally unwell we run to doctors looking for the preverbal magic pill. Of course, it is not our fault when we are bombarded daily with pharmaceutical commercials that tell us that there is a pill for very ailment. If we feel depressed there are medications to cheer us up, pills to calm us down when where anxious, pills to help us go to the bathroom and other pills to help us stop. There are medications to put ourselves to sleep and others to wake us up if we are tired. There are medications to lower our blood pressure and pills we give to our children to help them concentrate. Our goal is to return the feeling of control back to the individual and realize that we can empower ourselves to reclaim our birthright of emotional and physical health.
