What Is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a specialized therapy that uses cutting edge brain wave technology to engage your brain in a journey that is enjoyable and empowering. It enables you to participate in your brain’s healing process and helps you improve and regulate your brain function. Similar to physical training for the body, Neurofeedback training draws upon your brain’s innate ability to change and optimize, also called neuroplasticity.
This natural and safe alternative to medication works for all ages. Neurofeedback as an interactive brain optimization solution has been used by athletes to enhance performance, but can also be effectively used for executives who want to improve mental efficiency and clarity, as well as for individuals that wish to improve their cognitive functions or treat their mental health conditions.
Using highly specialized non-invasive electroencephalographic (EEG) equipment, Neurofeedback takes advantage of principles of operant conditioning (a reward-based system) to heal and maximize the brain's full potential.
What is the experience of Neurofeedback like?
Neurofeedback works on the premise of operant conditioning. In a nutshell, just as in EEG where the electrical activity (brain waves) of the brain is monitored by placing electrodes on the scalp, in Neurofeedback we do the same except we take it one step further. Instead of just looking for pathology, we use the information obtained from the electrodes and we feed it back to your brain via visual and auditory sources (through either watching a movie, playing a performance-based game or watching guided imagery).
Based on this feedback (reinforcement), your brain will decide whether to stay on the current path or to change its path (self-regulate) moving toward optimizing its function and thus creating a happier and more focused you!
Is Neurofeedback Safe?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive therapy that is completely safe with no known side effects.
What types of Neurofeedback Does Elumind offer?
At Elumind we offer three types of Neurofeedback: Infra-low Frequency (ILF) Neurofeedback, LORETA (Low-Resolution Electromagnetic tomography) Neurofeedback and SKILL-based Neurofeedback. After assessing you clinically (A full two hours psychological assessment), we move to creating a map of 55 different brain areas (QEEG or a Quantitative Electroencephalogram) and accordingly design a customized protocol using our array of Neurofeedback technologies.
Recognizing the uniqueness of your brain, this customized protocol will address your individual needs in brain optimization and training.
