Elinor shares about neurofeedback…
“Three years ago I was on the lookout for more tools to help my family and my counselling clients. When I found neurofeedback, I was intrigued. Something that we could simply and painlessly connect our brains into for training self-regulation was showing powerful results for a range of mental, emotional and behavioural issues in people of all ages. I researched the technology for two months and decided that I’d like to try it for myself. I chose NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback®, for its ease of use and safe and holistic approach. Many people were reporting excellent results from using this system, relieving symptoms associated with a variety of issues, like ADHD, PTSD, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, brain injuries, neurological and developmental disorders and more.
Over the course of 3 years, I used the technology with my clients, primarily children, and my family. I saw fairly consistent results ranging from mild improvement to almost miraculous improvement for a variety of conditions. I also brought the system to the elementary school where I was a counsellor and trained 6 students over the course of 3 months. The results were more than promising. We made a video about the program viewable here.
Opening NeurAlive Technologies is my way of bringing this powerful technology to more and more people. Our goal is to relieve suffering and aid personal transformation one brain at a time.”
