CLARKSTON, Mich., (WXYZ) – Ever get stressed out, can’t think straight, or have trouble sleeping? Maybe you deal with addiction, attention deficit disorder, or seizures.
Some say your brain may be out of balance.
Nearly 30,000 people in 16 countries are now doing a therapy called Brainwave Optimization with Real-time Balancing.
Country singing star Wynonna Judd says it has helped her lose 55 pounds.
Some local women are big believers in this, too.
One of them is Greta Emling of Oxford.
She said her son Brian underwent ten sessions of Brainwave Optimization during a painful illness. His health concerns had led to depression and sleeplessness.
“After the third session [of Brainwave Optimization], he slept all night for the first time in two years,” said Emling. “And at the end of ten sessions, we had our son back.” she smiled.
Emling has now completed ten, one-hour sessions herself.
She sustained a brain injury in 2006 after a golf ball hit her in the head near her temple. Ever since then she had had trouble concentrating and sleeping.
What happened after brain training?
“Incredible ability to organize my thoughts,” said Emling. “I don’t know what it’s really called, but to be able to think a week down the road or a month down the road.”
She took her sessions at a center in southeast Michigan now providing this process— Attuned Mind Brain Training Center in Clarkston.
Brainwave Optimization is a non-invasive therapy which involves placing sensors on the head to read activity from different lobes of the brain.
The information is sent to a computer which turns that data into musical tones and then plays those tones back to the client through ear phones.
“So she is basically listening to her brain live,” explained Julie Lamphier, Operational Manager at Attuned Mind.
“It’s like holding a mirror up to the brain so the brain can recognize any imbalances that have been created over time. We believe they’re called trauma imprints,” she added.
