Today in Brain Training: Peace in the Middle of the Anxiety Storm…

A client reports, after 10 sessions, that her appetite for food and life have opened up again, she’s now enjoying quality sleep without the aide of any medicines, and she’s got a calm sense of confidence even though she’s navigating through a very difficult personal matter (storm). Here is her survey report:Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 2.59.25 PM

Today in Brain Training: My Mind Feels Quieter & More Relaxed!

http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/03/24/us-memory-brainwaves-idUSTRE62N4VJ20100324 

A 54 year old hispanic male that we reported about earlier tells us that he is feeling much more relaxed. He shared that he’s able to listen and absorb more because his mind is quieter. It’s a great and rewarding day here at the Brain Training Centers of Florida!

Our Process

Brain Training Centers

Our Process

We have developed a process of Brainwave Optimization combined with Cognitive Behavior Treatment developed through the many years of experience and collaboration of Dr. Francis Flynn and Geoff Cole. The process described below is a loose framework allowing for significant modification based on the diverse needs of each individual. Accordingly, this is not meant as a description as to the only method that we use, this is merely a generalized description of the process which generally is applied as the basic protocol used in our offices in order to provide optimal results (up to 80% of our clients follow this protocol).
Process
1. Assessment and Review of Findings – extremely limited psycho-social history (1.5 to 3 hours)
2. 8 – 14 two hour sessions performed in one of the following formats
2.1. One a day in eight to fourteen days
2.2. One a day for three days (either consecutive or with one or two day breaks in between) then the fourth and fifth session done as a “double” on the same day followed by the sixth and seventh session done as a “double” the next day or with a day or two break before-hand.
2.3. Two sessions a day “doubles” for five to seven days.
2.4. Three sessions a day for five days – (Only done for athletes)
3. A two or three week break. If necessary the introduction of other modalities or disciplines such as CBT, massage, acupuncture, nutritional support, etc
4. 6 – 12 two hour sessions performed in six to twelve consecutive days.
5. A three to a month break.
6. 2 – 4 sessions performed one a day for two to four days or as “doubles” on the same day.
7. Follow up sessions as desired by client or client’s family or employers – as tune ups or follow up visits to utilize our process to peak mental fitness and to optimize functioning much like people go to the gym for physical fitness.

We have found that this (these) process(es) have proven the most effective. We in no way guarantee the results, as every individual reacts differently

How to Train Your Brain On Your Own

How to Train Your Brain On Your Own

• Begin each day with 5-10 minutes of self-directed thought (often called meditation or prayer) directing the focus of your energy to be from love of self rather than fears created by conditions of worth. Tell brain and mind to let go of all emotions from your past and live today “in the now” based on the knowledge and wisdom of your past but without holding on to any emotions from your past.
• Further, during the day try to do occasional situation checks and redirect the energy of your new neural pathways.
• Challenge and keep your mind active. Check into Lumosity or any other brain training games.
• Go to our website at www.braintrainingcentersfl.com and read blogs etc and pick books to read from the “books” tab on our website.

• Read the following books or any like them:
o Awareness
o By Anthony De Mello

o The Anatomy of the Spirit
o By Caroline Myss

o Limitless You
o By Lee Gerdes

o Spirituality of imperfection
o By: Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketchem

Remember that this may be impossible to do without first going through our program of training. Also remember that one session with us is usually as valuable as doing approximately three to six months of the above training (meditation or prayer, Lumosity, brain training games). It is recommended that you come back for “tune-ups” with us at The Brain Training Centers of Florida quarterly….

Brainwave Biofeedback

Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) revised its “Evidence-based Child and Adolescent Psycho-social Interventions” have elevated Brainwave Biofeedback to “Level 1 — Best Support” as an intervention for Attention & Hyperactivity Behaviors. This recognition of the value of brainwave biofeedback will be published in the next revision of this guideline document by PracticeWise,

the company that manages clinical research reviews for AAP. The other brain training intervention referred to as Working Memory Training continued to stay at Level 2 – Good Support. The studies that PracticeWise cited as supporting their decision were:
