What Happens During the Process?

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

Are you ready to experience something very special?


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

You begin with an initial 2 hour assessment, followed by 7 two-hour sessions per day over a 4 to 5 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 in to a comfortable 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 sensors on strategic points on your head and computer software picks up your brain waves. Your brain waves are then converted to music-like tones and sounds, which you listen to through ear buds.

The brain recognizes the tones as its own brain waves, begins to realize what isn’t optimal, and slowly begins to reset itself accordingly.

At times, a comforting, natural sound, such as ocean waves, gently crashing on the beach, is played in the background. You are given options from which to choose. This is to associate the optimization process with this sound so that, upon completion of your foundation series, you can use the Wave-Aid® CD we provide to continue to reinforce your brain relaxing and re-balancing itself.

During each session, the technologist comes in to the room and moves the sensors to different locations on your head. Any questions or issues that arise, as you go through your intensive, can be addressed by your technologist who will help you understand the process. The benefits are produced through you and your own brain.


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 the week a client can see how their own brain has started moving itself 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 flexibility of brain rhythms – from there, you and your brain can produce greater well-being, enhanced performance, and often, other positive experiences that no one can even predict.

Once you’ve completed Brainwave Optimization, you should continue to regularly use the Wave-Aid® CD, provided to you, to continue the process independently. Our patented Wave-Aid® process, with natural ambient sounds such as rain or waves gently breaking on the beach, supports the brain to sustain your results.

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

Please call us with any questions you may have.
