Always Another Way



Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES)

CES is the use of microcurrents delivered by a device which has received FDA approval for the treatment of anxiety, depression, insomnia, addiction, and pain.  Serotonin and endorphins can be activated within minutes for long-term relief of these conditions.

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback

Biofeedback and Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) are modalities used to diagnose and/or treat ADHD, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, Tics, insomnia, OCD, high blood pressure, and headaches and chronic pain.  Biofeedback works by teaching the brain and body how to gain control over physiological signals recorded through sensors, leading to symptom improvement.

Medication and Amino Acid Management

Dr. Rider is a Certified Prescribing Psychologist and manages most of his patients' medications through their primary care physicians.  Amino acid supplementation has proven to be a safe alternative for most mild to moderate ADHD.  Dr. Rider has been trained by the foremost authorities and labs in the country on the use of amino acids. 

Music Therapy

Dr. Rider has pioneered and published much work in the area of Music Therapy and Music Medicine.  One technique uses binaural technology to synchronize patients' brainwaves to desirable frequencies for the treatment of ADHD, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.  Once the "missing frequency" is found, patients can use headphones to remediate the above problems without medication.

Another approach developed by Dr. Rider is called the "entrainment" technique, and is used in the management of catastrophic illnesses such as cancer and autoimmune disease.  Through slowly changing, improvised music, patients' imagery of their own healing process is strengthened leading to clinical improvement.  Dr. Rider has published many scientific articles on the biological and psychological changes occurring with the entrainment technique.  Dr. Rider's work in this area has also appeared on the Veria Channel (Dish or Verizon), on the "Genesis of Healing" series.  For a sample of the entrainment music click here
