Change Your Mind with Neurofeedback is a clinical provider
for two different state-of-the-art Neurofeedback systems:
• PIR HEG (Passive Infrared Hemoencephelography)
• Cygnet, EEG (Electroencephalography)

Passive Infrared Hemoencephelography
PIR HEG is a special type of neurofeedback
that uses a straightforward process to indirectly
measure blood flow and oxygen in the brain.
The system operates by positioning an infrared camera-like
sensor on a person’s forehead. A movie is used as the feedback
signal. While watching the movie, a person needs to maintain a
RELAXED BUT FOCUSED state of active concentration. If they
lose their focus, the movie will pause. The object is to be able
to find and maintain that same sense of control and relaxation
in real life experiences. The results over the years have been
impressive with most people being able to achieve this balance
in a very few sessions.
The electroencephalograph has been
studied and applied since the 1930’s
as a way of looking at the operational
and electrical functioning of the brain.
Cygnet system, using very low frequencies, does this
exercise by using a movie or video game that gives us
visual and auditory feedback. By way of this response,
our subconscious mind begins to program our brain to
stay in a healthy pattern. By repeatedly training your
brain to return to the right zone, it should eventually
be able to attain a regulated brainwave pattern
automatically on its own volition. This in turn will
enable the brain to perform at its most optimal level.
