Change Your Mind with Neurofeedback
For thousands of years, people have used meditation
and prayer to change the brain by training the mind.
In the past 50 years, Neurofeedback technology has
made a much faster and easier option possible:
Change your mind by training the brain directly!
When you give your brain real-time information about
its energy, you can teach it to calm down or speed up,
to shift more smoothly and become more efficient.
Neurofeedback is a holistic, alternative modality that is
drug-free, painless, and non-invasive. Neurofeedback
acts as “Technological Cognitive Behavior Therapy”
and treats many neuropsychological conditions which
involve the self-regulation of the cerebral cortex of the
brain. The effectiveness of this method is demonstrated
in its ability to manage the cognitive processes of the
brain including focus, memory, planning, organizing,
learning, as well as regulate emotional tone and general
over arousal of the brain.
Neurofeedback uses direct training of brain function to
address problems of dysregulation. These encompass
numerous disorders including anger, anxiety, mild autism,
attention deficits, oppositional behavior, depression,
migraines, obsessive compulsive disorder, dementia,
PTSD, sleep, impulsivity; it also works to enhance
academic and athletic performance.
By applying sensors to the head, we are able to process
the feedback from brain activity. It has been discovered
that when people are given information about the activity
of what their brain is doing, they are able to consciously
or subconsciously control these functions through self-
regulation. Simply put, Neurofeedback is training in self-
regulation, which is a necessary part of good brain function
and which in turn, allows the central nervous system to
function at an optimal level.
Change Your Mind with Neurofeedback works with children,
adolescents, and adults, and is a clinical provider for two
different state-of-the-art Neurofeedback systems:
• PIR HEG (Passive Infrared Hemoencephelography)
• Cygnet, EEG (Electroencephalography)
