The No-Work Workout for Your BrainTM: Elevate your brain function. Elevate your life.
After an average of 20-30 neurofeedback sessions at a minimum of 2x/week, it's time to graduate Elevate Brain Training's neurofeedback program to thrive and to live life to the fullest, like Client "J" (who had a little support from "Mrs. Unicorn")!
Just sit back and relax: Listen to musical tones through Bose headphones, watch morphing fractal images reflecting your brainwave activity, and be mindful of a graph for a total of about 25-35 minutes of neurofeedback -- with a 20-second break for every 2 minutes of feedback. Some protocols require your eyes to be open, as in the first two images below. One particular protocol requires your eyes to be closed as the feedback music guides you into a highly relaxed state, as in the photo on the far right.
At the beginning of each subsequent session, you will be asked 14 questions. Your responses to these questions determine if and how much your protocols need to be refined since your previous session.
After all information is gathered, any necessary slight adjustments to the protocols are made, and then it's time for sensor placement. Sensors will be put on your ears and scalp. Some folks also have sensors placed on their foreheads. Nothing goes into your brain. Sensors only pick up electrical activity coming from your brain, similar to how a heart rate monitor picks up only your heart rate. Most clients need at least one, if not two, sensor changes which take just a few moments in between your different protocols.
During your intake session, your Elevate Brain Training neurofeedback practitioner will ask you 90 questions. No pricey brain map is needed with the BrainPaint system. The answers to this detailed questionnaire provide an in-depth look, so to speak, of your brain's electro-chemical activity. From here, individualized protocols -- types of brainwave training & duration of each type of brainwave training -- are determined. In some cases, there will be an extra test called a "BrainPrint" which provides a "thumbprint" of your brainwave activity.
What's the Brain Training Process Like?
At Elevate Brain Training, we make this process as user-friendly as possible:
**BrainPaint does NOT require an expensive brain scan or brain map to get started. A study compared the BrainPaint technique for protocol selection to that of a brain map and concluded, "...it is not possible to draw conclusions regarding any advantage regarding QEEG-specific training -- versus Scott/Peniston [the BrainPaint technique] -- using current analysis." ~Roger J. deBeus, PhD, BCIA-EEG
