Whether you are 10 years old or 40 years old, your brain is key to a healthy, balanced, and successful life. Your brain is “mission control” for all activities that you perform in any given moment, and a healthy mind is a reason you embrace each new day with excitement and passion. This mindset is the driving force behind Unique Mindcare’s desire to help all of our clients perform optimally in all areas of their life. We focus our attention on the brain-body system to accomplish these goals.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a treatment that helps the brain develop or rebuild neural pathways that improve focus and concentration. Neurofeedback has been proven to create positive and long-lasting mental changes in both children and adults and improve their quality of life. It trains your brain to be calm, alert, and flexible and allows the brain to process information at a higher rate of coherence that will help patients cope with life struggles more effectively.
Through the use of non-invasive, leading-edge computer technology, neurofeedback therapy monitors brainwave activity critical in stimulating healthy brain performance. The computer provides instant brainwave feedback to you through video images, sound, or both. The information that is fed back to you is EEG (electroencephalogram) data of brainwaves that are collected through sensors placed on the head. The feedback tells you to produce more or less of certain types of necessary brainwaves, encouraging your brain to behave in a certain way – it literally retrains your brain to think and function at a more efficient level.
At Unique Mindcare, we will create the highest level Neurofeedback protocols based on the data we collect during a QEEG test, also called “Brain Mapping”. This brain map is critical in determining the appropriate treatment area in the brain, like a customized exercise therapy for your brain similar to following a custom exercise program for your body at the gym. We observe your brain in action from moment to moment by monitoring your brain waves with our computer technology.
During the treatment session, you will hear sounds and tones and occasionally receive visual feedback in the form of animations, puzzles, and video graphics when the brain behaves as coached. Your brain will practice this desired behavior and over time it will gradually develop the ability to maintain that behavior by itself.
We have been the most advanced Neurofeedback provider in the Houston area for over 30 years. If you are currently suffering from a mood disorder or you are looking for a technique to achieve a higher level of performance and health, call Unique Mindcare and learn about our Neurofeedback programs.
