Brainwave Optimization offered by Jackie Gates, Master Level IV technologist

Brain training isn’t based on diagnosis and neither is it concerned with symptoms a client may be suffering. Its focus is on the degree of balance and harmony the brain experiences, plus the flexibility it demonstrates when it moves from being at rest to being activated. This is quite different from modalities that compare a person’s brain with a normative database and then try to teach the individual to bring their brain functioning up to par with the average brain.

How do I get started?

The first step is a personal brainwave assessment which will take approximately 1 1/2 hours. The assessment involves recording the energy of your brainwaves in seven areas of your brain. Personalized protocols are determined by the result of your assessment. You may begin your first brain balancing session immediately following this assessment.

How long is each session?

Approximately 1 1/2  to 1 3/4 hours.

What is the recommended number of sessions?

Minimum 10 sessions of brain training are required for you to gain the initial maximum benefit from Brainwave Optimization w/RTB.. Brain State recommends you do 2 sessions a day over a 5 day period. (max 10 days)

What results should I expect?

Each one of us is a completely unique individual, so results will vary from person to person. The results you receive will also depend on why you seek brain balancing. For example, clients with addictions or some other issues that are significantly impacting the quality of their lives, will usually feel results fairly quickly, and people around them will notice changes as well. Clients with less significant imbalances usually show more subtle results which are often noticed first by family members, friends, colleagues, etc. Benefits felt by most clients, regardless of the issues that brought them in, are a sense of calmness, relaxation, reduced stress and anxiety, and better sleep.

What age must a person be to use this technology?

We have had success with clients from the age of 2 to 100. However, this is determined on a client by client basis. If you are considering Brainwave Optimization w/RTB for your child, we encourage you to take advantage of our free consultation or to come and experience BWO for yourself.

Does electricity get processed into the brain or body?

Absolutely NOT. The technology generates sound-waves delivered through earphones that allow your brain to form new, neuro-net pathways based on balanced energy.

Is this process safe?

Yes. The process is non-invasive - meaning, NO drugs, NO electricity into your brain or body, NO surgical procedures. It's simply a form of bio-feedback that allows your brain to balance and harmonize itself which enhances the brain's performance and consequently improves lives.

Who should use this technology?

Brainwave Optimization is a remarkable technology.  Whether you have major issues or behaviors that are negatively impacting your life, or you simply want to enhance your memory, focus, or physical performance and be more calm, and clear-minded - we are here to help.

Do I have to do anything during the sessions?

No - just relax. You will sit in an amazingly comfortable zero-gravity reclining chair (clients want to take it home with them!) in a darkened room. It’s all about relaxing and quieting the busy, chattery mind. If you don’t have relaxation methods that you currently practice (i.e. breathing, visualization, etc.) I will have plenty of suggestions for you.

Are there any medications that prevent or lessen the benifits of brain balancing?

Possibly. It is possible that some beta-blockers (usually prescribed for heart conditions) can negate or lessen the benefits. There is no way to determine how an individual brain will respond on medications.

Are there any lifestyle changes I need to make to do Brainwave Optimization?

It is best not to drink alcoholic beverages within 48 hours of your brain training session, as alcohol may interfere with the brain balancing process.  And we reccomend that you do not drink or do recreational drugs for 3 weeks after training.  That allows the new neuro-pathways that were  formed during training to become dominate.

Is this process covered by insurance?

Please contact your insurance company and ask if they cover “biofeedback” or “neurofeedback”. I do not bill insurance but will be happy to provide an invoice.
