Therapeutic Assessment: The Key to Informed Care
Before embarking on any treatment journey, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your condition. Elumind’s therapeutic assessments help you and your treatment team make informed decisions.
At Elumind Centres, we are committed to treating the underlying causes of a person’s symptoms in order to give them long-lasting relief from their mental health conditions.
To do this, we must first determine a person’s identity, living circumstances, goals, and challenges, upbringing, the support surrounding any traumatic experiences they may have had in the past, general health and non-psychiatric illnesses, nutrition, level of exercise, sleep quality, history of psychiatric conditions, and the efficacy of any therapy they may have previously received.
The more we understand our clients, the better we can assist them, but this process takes time. One of our doctors conducts a therapeutic assessment, often known as a TA, with each new client.

QEEG Brain Map – Personalized Insights
At Elumind, we use Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) Brain Mapping to gain a deeper understanding of your brain’s unique patterns. This personalized approach allows us to tailor your treatment plan for optimal results.
QEEG Brain Mapping is a quick and efficient tool that allows us to gather data and understand your brain’s functioning, and circuit communication that relates to your behaviors, emotions, and overall functioning. Looking at 55 sites of the brain, we identify any strengths and deficiencies in brain networks and their interconnections. This tool allows us to treat targeted areas of the brain and address any underlying issues that may not have been noticed otherwise. We use this information in our Neurofeedback protocols in order to train your brain toward optimal functioning.

Neurofeedback – Enhancing Brain Performance
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive specialized form of brain training. Using brain wave technology to engage your brain in a healing process and help you improve and regulate your brain function and central nervous system. Whether you’re struggling with ADHD, anxiety, Chronic pain, Memory disorders, OCD, PTSD, Sleep disorders, Traumatic brain injuries, or depression, Neurofeedback can be a game-changer in helping you regain control over your mental health. Your Neurofeedback session will be in a soft lit, relaxing room with a reclined sofa chair to ensure your comfort. Sensors and headphones are placed on your head to measure your brainwaves, then our computer processes this data and feeds this brain activity back to you via visual and auditory stimulation. This feedback works as a reward system for your brain when it produces optimal activity, encouraging relaxation, focus, and attention, all the while discouraging the type of brain activity that causes anxiety depression, or ADHD.

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) – A Beacon of Hope
TMS is a revolutionary treatment option for individuals facing severe depression, PTSD, OCD, Autism, Headaches and Migraines and other mood disorders. Discover how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a non-invasive form of brain stimulation is making a profound impact on the lives of many.
TMS works by applying MRI-like magnetic fields to specific areas of the brain. Done in an outpatient setting, TMS uses a device that works on the outside of the body to affect the brain circuits and reach the neurons of the cortex. This act of stimulation ignites circuits in the brain that are malfunctioning in depressive and anxious patients. TMS has an excellent safety profile and very low incidence of side effects. It has NOT been associated with many of the side effects caused by antidepressant medications, such as gastrointestinal upset, dry mouth, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, and memory decline.
Advanced Photobiomodulation – Healing through Awareness
Learn about how Photobiomodulation empower individuals to take an active role in managing conditions like Anxiety, ADHD, Sleep disorders, OCD, migraines, and chronic pain, by promoting self-regulation and reducing symptoms. It is a form of low-level light therapy that incorporates LEDs or lasers to deliver light within the visible and near-infrared spectrum to heal tissue in the body. Our center specializes in using (PBM) to treat various psychological conditions.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) uses photons of light to enhance the functions of neurons and glial cells. The primary mechanism of PBM is through an increase in the production of a molecule called ATP.

Harnessing the Power of Self-Regulation
Biofeedback is a transformative therapy offered at Elumind Centres, designed to empower individuals in their journey towards better mental health. This non-invasive technique is particularly valuable for those dealing with conditions like OCD, migraines, and chronic pain.
Biofeedback is a therapy that allows you to control and regulate your body’s physiological functions more effectively, thereby reducing excess nervous excitability in your body. Whether you want to take charge of your emotions, control pain signals in your body or as an athlete reach higher levels, taking charge of your physiology through biofeedback allows you to optimize your body’s nervous system and puts you fully in charge of your life. During a session, our experts attach non-invasive electrical sensors to your skin (finger sensors could also be used) through which you receive instant feedback on your body’s functions. [More…]

A Holistic Approach to Mental Health
In addition to the cutting-edge therapies we’ve explored, Elumind Centres also embraces functional medicine as a fundamental component of our holistic approach to mental health care. Functional medicine, sometimes referred to as integrative medicine, offers a different perspective on treating mental health conditions by addressing the root causes and underlying imbalances rather than just managing symptoms.
Functional medicine tackles the underlying causes of chronic and complicated health issues, doing away with band-aid solutions and returning control to the patient. It combines integrative medicine with western (allopathic) medicine using evidence-based best practices.
Elumind Centres for Brain Excellence is more than just a clinic; it’s a beacon of hope for individuals and families seeking effective solutions for mental health challenges. Our dedicated team, state-of-the-art treatments, and commitment to personalized care are here to transform your mental health journey.
