An Unrivalled River Retreat
Many people in our society are stressed beyond their capacity, and some are seriously struggling to cope. A large portion of the population is operating in survival mode, just focusing on getting through each day. Most people are so stressed and exhausted that the traditional relaxation methods don’t work. And so, in our increasingly demanding world, we need to look for a more efficient ways to relax.
“It’s a simple concept that seems counterintuitive in our complicated busy world,” explains Penny Louw of Neurobalance in Cape Town. “It is the concept that being ‘calm and relaxed’ makes us efficient. Being rested is when we have our best ideas and function really well in every way.”
What if technology offered us an easy way to calm our minds and ease our stress levels? This is exactly what Brainwave Optimization does with a process where electrodes are used to measure brainwave activity. The ratios of activity that are measured across the brain can provide information about how an individual has stored any trauma from their past. “We are able to reflect brainwave activity back to the brain by translating it into sound and reflecting that back to the brain,” Louw says. “The brain uses this information to recover, relax and find balance. The results can be astounding.”
Most people have not made the connection between how much stress they have stored up in their systems and how those stresses manifest into the symptoms they experience daily. Struggling to sleep, constant worrying, overreacting, and struggling with focus and concentration are all signs that your brain isn’t functioning as it should. All of these symptoms, and more, can be resolved by calming the system with the use of the simple and efficient, internationally recognised Brainwave Optimization process, offered locally at Neurobalance offices in both Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The system was developed in the United States by Lee Gerdes, a businessman who was struggling to cope with the demands of his job in technology as well as the aftereffects of a violent mugging. In 2004 he left his high-powered job to set up a business called Brainstate Technologies.
The dramatic improvement in the health of her own family, after a trip to the USA to experience the process in 2006, Louw and her family decided to bring the technology back to SA and offer others the same opportunity to recover their mental health.
Early research supported the fact that the Neurobalance process was efficient at helping clients achieve restful sleep cycles. After the treatment, individuals that usually struggle to sleep found that they were able to sleep soundly. They would then wake up feeling refreshed, and rediscover the power of concentration and creativity that a rested brain generates. It’s interesting to think that once the brain discovers how the establishment of these neural patterns may have been necessary for survival in the past, but that now they simply limit us, it readjusts itself.
For those after a little mind-relaxation at home, there is also the option to use the wearable unit, Braintellect2. A simple headband and tablet gives the user the advantage of a relaxed brain, and all the advantages that accompany it, in the comfort of their own home.
Think about it: what would your life be like without the troubling symptoms that plague you?
