Cynde Margritz Finds Hope After Brain Injury With Neurofeedback

Cynde Margritz suffered a head injury when she was five. As an after-effect, she fought severe anxiety and ADD to varying degrees for nearly 40 years. Her story is told by freelancer Amanda Long in the Washington Post Magazine:

"By the time I was in second grade, I had severe anxiety, almost agoraphobia. I would only go to school if the neighbor boy would hold my hand in class.

I don't know if it was to keep my brain activated or relieve my anxiety. The biggest thing was getting my brain going and motivated [to do] what I wanted to get done in my life."

Margritz found help with neurofeedback:
At the insistence of her biomedical engineer husband, Margritz tried neurofeedback. That was in 2000, when Cynde was working at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The use of neurofeedback, a type of biofeedback, began with NASA's discovery of a fundamental brain rhythm involved in relaxation. NASA uses the process to help its pilots remain calm, alert and highly efficient in stressful conditions.

With the help of neurofeedback, the brain fog that Margritz had lived with since her early playground injury lifted. The feeling was so compelling that she decided she’d like to do this for other people and began to pursue neurofeedback professionally in 2005, studying with many of the field’s pio
