What Happens During the Process?

Wear comfortable clothing and settle in to a comfy chair. Most people fall asleep.

The Brainwave Optimization Process


In most cases, we recommend that you begin with a Brainwave Optimization Foundation series, which is done by a certified technologist.

You begin with an evaluation, followed by 4 or 7 two-hour sessions, spread out over a 2 to 4 day period. 64 different points are addressed throughout comprehensive sessions. The process supports the brain to move itself naturally, facilitating the brain to adjust its own activity, in order to balance itself.

The number of sessions varies, based on a variety of factors, including whether you do them in a week, or whether you extend your sessions over a longer period of time. Please call us to discuss the different options that are available.

Your session begins by settling you into a comfortable zero gravity chair in a relaxed setting in a peacefully lit room. We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing, keeping in mind that many people fall asleep. The technologist places read only sensors on strategic points on your head and computer software then picks up your brainwaves. Your brainwaves are then converted to music-like tones, which you listen to through earbuds.

The brain recognizes itself and its brainwave patterns begin to realize what isn’t optimal, and slowly begins to reset itself accordingly; returning to a more balanced state.

During each session, the technologist comes into the room every 10 to 15 minutes and moves the sensors to different locations, depending on the areas that need to be addressed. Any questions or issues that arise, as you go through your intensive, can be addressed by your technologist after your sessions are completed. Conversations are kept to a minimum to ensure that you remain in a relaxed and unstimulated state. 


The results, for many, are life changing.

When you begin Brainwave Optimization, you may not notice a lot of obvious or dramatic changes initially.  At times you may experience some emotional and physical ups and downs. This is normal. Many clients may notice a shift within a session or two. At the end of their initial set of sessions, a client can see how their brain has begun to move towards a more flexible state.

Frequently, some of the most meaningful benefits are experienced several weeks to many months after sessions are completed. 

The role of Brainwave Optimization® is to facilitate a state of relaxation and more flexible brain rhythms – from there, you and your brain can produce greater well-being, enhanced performance, and often, other positive results.

Ideally, we recommend that you use a BRAINtellect® 2 headband to sustain your results.

Many clients enjoy coming in for regular “tune-up” sessions because it is incredibly refreshing and relaxing.
