What inspired the founding of LuxNeuro, and what are the key goals you aim to achieve?
We all deserve to be freed from our minds, and our past experiences and to show up as our best selves. We are inspired by addressing the root cause, which is the hardware of our bodies – the brain. Our key goals we aim to achieve are finite treatment plans with long-lasting success and change.
What is the story behind the name LuxNeuro?
LuxNeuro. “Lux” means light in latin. Neuro refers to mental health care, neurofeedback and the brain. We believe that all of us have light and lightness to us and encourage everyone to reach their full potential through bringing all parts – the shadows and the light – to be integrated.
Could you explain the specific services or products that LuxNeuro provides?
We offer both neurofeedback and counseling services. Neurofeedback is a process of learning and training the brain. By mapping the brain’s electrical activity, we obtain a roadmap of how a client’s brain functions, and we use this information to create an individualized and customized treatment plan and protocols. Neurofeedback addresses all areas of your health and well-being, so you can access the answers within you and move from a state of surviving to thriving. Neurofeedback is a highly effective treatment that yields longitudinal and positive results, helping you shift your mindset so you can move from feeling stuck to finally feeling free.
Neurofeedback training, at its core, is the process of learning. During neurofeedback sessions, your brain learns to produce less or more of the brainwaves that we target, in the locations that need more or less power of certain brainwaves. By placing electrodes on the scalp (a non-invasive process), the brainwaves are read and the brain receives feedback through visual, tactile, or auditory feedback. This allows the brain to self-adjust. With repetition, the brain learns to regulate itself, leading to improved symptoms.
With time, your brain creates new, more efficient neural connections that allow the movie to stay in focus better. The result – better focus and concentration in the real world. Whether it’s panic attacks, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, autism, or any other brain-based condition, neurofeedback can offer a solution using this natural, effective approach. Think about it this way – when you first tried to swim or ride a bike, you had to practice it repeatedly to learn how to do it correctly. With practice and repetition, you soon found yourself riding or swimming with ease. That’s an everyday example of how neurofeedback works. The results can last a lifetime.
As with any skill such as swimming, once you learn how, the ability remains present for you to call on when you need it. Neurofeedback training produces the same long-lasting change in your brainwave activity. Even better, since it’s a natural learning activity, there are very limited negative side effects.
We offer neurofeedback in both in-person and remote treatment. Additionally, we have highly qualified licensed counselors that are guided by compassion and care. There is nothing too little or too big that we can work through together. Neurofeedback and counseling services can be completed separately or combined as needed for the individual.
How do you differentiate LuxNeuro from other organizations working in similar domains?
We pride ourselves on being the gold standard of mental health care. We take our passion very seriously. Continued education, patient rapport, trust, and transparency are what makes our clinic relentless in ensuring the utmost quality care with our clients. We aim to have our client’s graduate from care in a finite, timely manner so that they can successfully live their best lives, impacting not only themselves, but those around them. We believe in the ripple effect and creating positive change on both a micro and macro level.

In what ways does LuxNeuro leverage cutting-edge technology and innovation in its work?
LuxNeuro only utilizes the highest quality of neurofeedback systems – both in the clinic and remote systems. We ensure that every individual that works with LuxNeuro, receives individualized attention and customized protocols. We do not offer a one-size fits all approach and are continuously committed to continued education and latest research in the field.
Are there any emerging technologies or methodologies that LuxNeuro is particularly excited about or actively exploring?
The field of neuroscience is constantly evolving. We are always looking into the latest and most effective methodologies in the field. This includes but is not limited to extensive brain-training protocols, psychoeducation and at home neurofeedback training. Home training can be a cost effective and less time-consuming solution compared to in office sessions. Home training allows you to complete training in a much shorter time frame. If clients come once a week for in office sessions, they typically train for 6-12 months on average. With home training, it is possible to complete Neurofeedback training in 8-14 weeks. Thanks to modern technology, LuxNeuro can monitor, manage and adjust training sessions via the internet. We continue to support and guide clients through their home training experience. The client’s well being is our main concern, and we are available to support each client through the home training process. Home training can be a great solution for some, but for others office training is a better fit. We encourage open dialogue with our clients to think through their options and ask questions to make a decision that best fits their needs.
Could you share examples of industries or clients that LuxNeuro has worked with, and the impact of your services on their projects or initiatives? We understand if you need to keep names out of this and keep it anonymous.
LuxNeuro works with a wide variety of clientele, ranging from ages 8-86 years of age. Our demographic includes but is not limited to: children, peak performers, parents, corporations, veterans, first responders, healthcare professionals, optimization, healthy aging, stress management, athletes, individuals with TBI and/or concussions, and those with mental health concerns. Results from neurofeedback last a lifetime. We are devoted to changing the trajectory of an individual’s life to allow them to step into their best selves.
How do you measure success or impact in the context of your work?
We measure our success by both clinical data (tracking the individual’s brainwaves from session to session), subjective and objective experience and the use of a qEEG. A qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) is a diagnostic tool that measures electrical activity in the form of brain wave patterns. It is sometimes referred to as “brain mapping.”
What are some of the key challenges you face in the field of neuroscience and how does LuxNeuro address them?
The key challenges we face in the field of neuroscience is ensuring that individuals who seek treatment outside of LuxNeuro are receiving quality care. The brain affects every aspect of health and we take our work very seriously. Ensuring quality and ethical care is our main concern. We address this concern through continued education, mentorships, partnerships with neuroscience doctors, and high touch-point supervision.
Are there any untapped opportunities or potential areas of growth that LuxNeuro is exploring?
Absolutely! We are also looking into untapped opportunities and markets. We are currently working towards in-person neurofeedback with corporations, retreats, and online education. Additionally, we are incorporating how other modalities (such as nutrition, trauma, and supplementation) can affect brain health. We believe firmly that when you are changing one part of the working system, fundamentally you are changing the whole.
How do you envision the future of LuxNeuro and its role in shaping neuroscience?
We are beyond ecstatic for what’s to come. We envision the future of LuxNeuro being a national brand with the gold standard of mental health care. We will help aid in shaping neuroscience through cognitive enhancements, mental health care, neuroplasticity, rehabilitation, neurological disorders, healthy aging, and education.
Stay tuned for more! We are currently working with many collaborations and developments.
