What Do All Of These Have In Common:

The Brain

The brain is the control center of the body. There is a constant flow of information between the brain and body regulating every cell,
organ, gland and system. This is commonly referred to as the mind-body connection.

If the brain becomes dysregulated or imbalanced for any reason the body also becomes dysregulated or imbalanced over time.

The six most common causes of brain dysregulation are; genetic, physical trauma, emotional trauma, chronic stress, poor nutrition,
and toxins.

The brain has five primary states of arousal from deep sleep to wide awake and highly focused. Each state has one dominant
brainwave pattern (see below).

  Delta (0.5-3 Hz) Deep, dreamless sleep
  Theta (4-7 Hz) REM sleep, deep meditation
  Alpha (7-15 Hz) Awake, relaxed, unfocused
  Beta (16-31 Hz) Wide awake, alert, focused
  Gamma (32+Hz) Hyper-focused

A balanced brain functioning optimally is a flexible brain, able to adjust the dominant brainwave pattern to the activity required
e.g. delta for sleep, beta for learning.

When the brain becomes dysregulated for one of the reasons above, it is no longer balanced and flexible, able to adjust the dominant
brainwave pattern to the activity and arousal level required. It becomes stuck, frozen in a dysregulated brainwave pattern.


An example of a stuck dysregulated pattern is a child with ADHD. The brain is stuck in typically theta and won't move into beta for learning.
The child tries their best to shift the brain into beta through hyperactivity but with little success.

Drugs are commonly prescribed to manage the symptoms of brain dysregulation but do little to correct the root problem. Stop the drugs
and the original symptoms return. Plus drugs often cause negative side-effects.

Luckily there is a quick, safe, non-invasive, non-drug alternative. It
's called Neurofeedback.

Neurofeedback goes to the root of the problem correcting many brain dysregulation disorders permanently, making it the most cost effective
long-term treatment modality currently available.

There are two types of neurofeedback. Both use sensors attached to the scalp to monitor brainwave patterns.

1. ) The first is "active" neurofeedback where the brain is actively retrained by engaging in an activity such as a game on a computer screen.
The person is rewarded when they are able to shift their dominant brainwave pattern to a more optimal pattern for the activity they
're doing.

This form of neurofeedback has been around for decades and is well proven however it requires a great deal of focus and patience. The
sessions are longer than the next form of neurofeedback and it can necessitate 30-50 sessions to see significant change.

2. ) The second is "passive" neurofeedback, the newest and arguably the most cutting edge. Being passive there is nothing to learn or do.
The brain is interrupted with an extremely weak radio signal that cannot be felt. This weak signal disrupts the stuck dominant brainwave
pattern prompting the brain to develop a new more optimal pattern.

With "passive" neurofeedback the sessions are shorter, improvements happen without effort, and many people feel a positive change
within their first few sessions. Significant and lasting change is usually experienced within only 20-30 sessions.

At Wellness Northwest we use the clinical trial tested "passive" neurofeedback system HPN or High Performance Neurofeedback.
In clinical trials HPN has successfully alleviated symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in former NFL football players and PTSD
in former Marines.



Corey Snook and High Performance Neurofeedback (HPN)

  About 10 years ago New England engineer Corey Snook, with a daughter on the Autistic Spectrum, who
  also suffered from a seizure disorder, attended LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) training
  workshops, both at an ISNR conference, and at the Stone Mountain Counseling Center. His demonstrable
  engineering skills led subsequently to his being hired by Len Ochs of Ochs Labs, Inc. as a systems

  Unfortunately, a couple of years later, Corey felt he had discovered engineering anomalies in Len's system
  as it was being offered at the time, and suggested to Len Ochs that the system needed to be re-designed.
  Ochs subsequently fired Snook; but Corey was still determined to help his daughter. He went on to went on
  to develop his own neurofeedback device, called the NeuroGen, or High-Performance Neurofeedback (HPN).

  Having known Corey Snook for a decade, and trusting his integrity. Dr. Larsen and his staff were trained in
  HPN NeuroGen in the fall of 2013. After purchasing the equipment, which rests on an FDA approved J&J
  Engineering hardware platform (always our preferred instrumentation, because of its stability and reliability)
  we have developed an eight month clinical record which shows, unequivocally, that the HPN indeed works,
  and for a variety of disorders such as TBI, Neurological Lyme, Seizure Disorders, ADD, Anxiety and

  While we continue to use both the LENS and the HPN at Stone Mountain, we have come to feel that there
  are advantages to each. Informal and subjective evaluations suggest the HPN reaches deeper into the
  physiological parameters of the body (immune, digestive and circulatory system) and the effects may
  last longer after treatments than with the LENS.


Dr. David Dubin MD founder of the Dubin Clinic located in Los Angeles, California, whom Shane trained with, originally used traditional
"active" neurofeedback in his clinic, then shifted to the faster acting "passive" neurofeedback system the LENS, and now primarily
uses HPN over LENS.

Naturally chronic dysregulation patterns will take longer to rebalance than acute, and functional dysregulation patterns resolve more quickly
than dysregulation patterns caused by structural damage to the head.

Because neurofeedback helps rebalance the root cause, relapse of symptoms is rare.

Neurofeedback can also slow age related decline, but unfortunately cannot eliminate it.

Some people fear that neurofeedback will change their personality or identity. In reality it removes the brain dysregulation that is masking
their true personality or identity allowing them to be free to be themselves at last.

Neurofeedback offers hope to those who have tried everything else for their depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD or other debilitating brain
disorder, and nothing else has worked.

It's safe for both children and adults. There are no contra-indications, and no serious side-effects have been reported in over 30 years of use.
Some people may experience a mild headache, mild fatigue, slight spaciness or irritability after a session which soon resolves on its own.

Some of the many benefits of neurofeedback include:

  Improved clarity, focus and cognition
  More vibrant perceptions
Fewer mood swings
Enhanced creativity

  Reduced pain and renewed energy
Less anxiety and stress
Sound sleep
A better quality of life!
