Hemoencephalography

HEG

HEG uses an infrared device that is placed at the center of the forehead.  The client keeps a video running via focus and relaxation.  Heg is used for Migraines, language issues and learning disorders.

Brain activation is an exercise. Fresh blood brings in the necessary nutrition, oxygen and the glucose, that supplies the energy for a brain module to efficiently do its assigned job. Exercise affects the brain much like it affects muscles. New capillaries are formed to feed neurons. New connections between neurons are formed to carry information. Like a muscle, with exercise, the brain builds a vascular system, enabling more brain tissue for use by this brain area. The brain grows physically. With exercise, the brain builds a vascular system, enabling more brain efficiency in its use. Exercise is the road to a healthy brain!

The relevant part of brain training involves making the targeted brain area active, Activity makes a demand for more blood to be brought into the area. Each active 10 minutes can be thought of as a segment in a session. Repeating sessions is necessary for useful results. Each segment is like a grain of wheat as you fill the measuring cup before you can make a loaf of bread. Best efficiency (least number of sessions) requires at least one night's sleep between sessions. Clients, long deprived of brain activity, will need to expose the newly developing brain capability to necessary new information. We call this education.
