The nCenter in Bozeman & Belgrade, MT
At the nCenter we are dedicated to our clients achieving greater balance in their lives. We promote resilience and well-being in all aspects of life: physical, emotional, intellectual, and social.
It is our belief that the functioning of the brain and body is foundational to self-concept. We have seen that when the balance of brain and body are restored, shifts in self-concept are more easily achieved. We employ the following modalities to support the brain and body: neurofeedback, Rolfing, CranialSacral Therapy, and cold lasers. All of these serve the heart of our work, which is counseling.
Jan Matney, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, has worked as a professional counselor since 1990. She has a holistic, solution-focused approach through which clients can unearth long-standing behavioral patterns and negative perceptions that hold them back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Using attachment theory Jan works with couples and families to gain deeper connections. She is a collaborative and respectful guide, helping clients establish and realize personal goals.
The Neurofield is an FDA approved neurofeedback system we employ at the nCenter. It uses an ultra-low ouput pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF) that stimulates locked brainwave patterns to become more flexible and builds or decreases activity in areas of the brain that are deficient or excessive so that the brain becomes more balanced.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF) has been used therapeutically for decades, and there are over 2,000 published clinical studies on the benefits of pEMF therapy published in scientific literature.
With the qEEG Brain map we personalize neurofeedback for our clients, and with Neurofield we use precision and finesse to balance and organize the brain.
Our clients have reported more stable moods, increased energy, better memory retention and access, increased environmental, personal, and emotional sensitivity, higher cognitive capacity and function, and improved coordination, balance, and general body function with neurofeedback. Parents and teachers have noted more flexibility, focus, better sleep, mood, and emotional regulation with children in their care.
"Neurofeedback should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used. It is a field to be taken seriously by all."

Ann Matney is a Certified Rolfer at the nCenter. Rolfing is a holistic system of bodywork that uses deep manipulation of the body's soft tissue to realign and balance the myofascial structure. Rolfing helps to improve posture and balance by re-educating movement patterns. This can bring relief from general aches and pains, improve breathing, increase energy, improve self-confidence, and relieve physical and mental stress.
Rolfing is also used to treat chronic back pain and joint pain that may be caused by injury, repetitive stress and/ or subconscious postural patterns. Many amateur and professional athletes, including Olympic skaters and skiers, use Rolfing to keep in top condition and to prevent and hasten recovery time from injury.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions in the body. Using a soft touch that is generally no greater than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel) restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system are released. The membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord heavily influence the central nervous system. With the cranialsacral touch, restrictions in any tissues influencing the neurological and vascular systems are released thus enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct.
A qEEG (quantitative electroencephalography) is a brain map. It is an objective assessment of how your brain works. A qEEG is a recording of the brain’s electrical patterns or brainwaves at the surface of the scalp. Sensors are used to detect the activity and the brainwaves are recorded.
The qEEG provides us with a picture of your brain – We can then see ways in which the brainwaves are not in balance and are not coordinating the best they could.
Once we can see the reason for your symptoms on a brain level, we can choose specifically how to use neurofeedback so that you can address your issues and meet your goals.
qEEG brain mapping was introduced more than 30 years ago as a means of diagnosing brain function. qEEG’s are used in research to study ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, depression and bipolar disorder, PTSD, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, and more. We use this research-level tool to assess your brain function and to track your progress over your neurofeedback sessions.
Cold Laser Therapy
The Cold Laser Q1000 delivers low-level coherent light to decrease inflammation and pain by encouraging tissue regeneration. Cold Lasers have been used at NASA for wound healing and are FDA approved for osteoarthritis of the wrist. They are FDA Class I devices, which are safe, non-invasive and easy to apply.
Aura PTL II
The Aura PTL II is a Low Level Light Therapy used for energetic balancing and health. It is a safe and non-invasive light that is used to reduce inflammation by balancing energy that flows through the meridians. The Aura PTL II was originally developed by Dr. Reinhold Voll of Germany in the 1920s. It is also known as 'electro-acupuncture', and it can be used for various symptoms and in combination with Bach Flower Remedies.
