Brain Balance includes the tools of -Brain Gym Cranio Sacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Matrix Energetics, and Trauma Resolution . Each client, class or corporate session is built to meet the specific needs of each client.
Brain Gym grew out of research in 1969 by Paul Dennison, P.H.D., who was looking for ways to help children and adults who had been identified as "learning disabled." His research led him to study physical development, education, brain function, psychology, and applied Kinesiology as they related to brain function.
Babies and young children naturally perform what experts in early childhood education call developmental movements. These movements develop the neural connections in the brain,which are essential to learning. Dr. Dennison discovered ways to adapt and sequence these movements so they could be effective for older children and adults.
EDU-K/BrainGym can directly stimulate and heighten brain function. Using cross-lateral, fine-motor movements, BrainGym energizes muscles on both sides of the body. This relates to integration and activation of the motor cortex, of the frontal lobes, of the cerebrum, as well as the basal ganglion and cerebellum. Regular and routine activation of the motor cortex enhances nerve networks in all areas of the frontal lobe, including the pre-motor and superior pre-frontal cortex. In stimulating and activating nerve networks throughout the brain, in both hemispheres concurrently, these movements create the changes necessary to assure success for life long learning.
Brain Balance identifies critical functions of the brain, eyes, ears, and muscular system that are unbalanced or in a state of disorganization. Particular and specialized BrainGym movements and activities are then applied to re-organize and balance these functions and improve neural communication of the brain to provide the foundation for optimal and easy learning.
Educational Kinesiology/BrainGym is being incorporated into a variety of settings, including schools, businesses, executive training, rehabilitation programs, and athletic training programs. It is used in many settings by professionals around the world.
Brain Balance can have a positive and powerful effect in all areas of learning and also offers a simple approach to a state of balanced well being. Brain Balance offers fun, quick, and an easy way to improve many areas of your life and provides a process for life-long success and self-improvement.
Brain Balance prepares your brain and entire nervous system for optimal performance in all areas-intellectual,creative,athletic, and interpersonal skills.
Brain Balance is for young, old, older adults, athletes, teachers, MD.'s artists, executives and so many more.

Cranio Sacral Therapy is a gentle light-touch approach. Cranio Sacral Therapy releases restrictions and abnormal cranial bone motion around the brain, skull and face bones and spinal cord. This gentle method of detection and correction encourages your own natural healing mechanisms of your body to self-correct and free itself of pain, improve whole-body health and improve performance.
Dr.John Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., began using the rhythm of the Cranio Sacral System while studying at MichiganStateUniversity over thirty years ago. He discovered the Craniosacral System is a simi-closed hydraulic system contained within a tough membrane which envelopes the brain and spinal cord. This semi-closed hydraulic system functions to produce, circulate and reabsorb Cerebrospinal Fluid. The Pulse of this system creates a flexion and extension within the Craniosacral System. If for some reason your body is unable to accommodate the pressure changes due to restrictions of bones or tissue, the subsequent buildup of pressure can contribute to dysfunctions and ill health, especially in the Central Nervous System which is enclosed within the boundaries of the Craniosacral System.
Some of the results of Cranio Sacral Therapy can be:
·Overall better health, increased resistance to disease, alleviation of specific medical conditions. Since this vital system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction in it could potentially cause any number of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.
·These problems could include chronic pain, eye difficulties, learning disabilities and other health challenges.
Cranio Sacral Therapy can alleviate the following:
·Migraines and Headaches
·Chronic Neck and Back Pain
·Emotional difficulties & Stress related issues
·Post traumatic stress syndrome
·Learning disabilities, ADD, ADHD
·Neurovascular or Immune disorders
·Infantile and birth Disorders and other problems associated with newborns
·Traumatic Brain Injury and spinal cord injuries
·Scoliosis and other back issues
·Central Nervous System Disorders
·Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
In 1985 Dr. Upledger started the Upledger Institute to teach the public and Healthcare practitioners about the benefits of Cranio Sacral Therapy. To date more than 80,000 healthcare Practitioners worldwide have been trained in the use of Cranio Sacral Therapy.
Some of the treatment modalities included in Cranio Sacral are:
Somato Emotional Release-the release of emotional energy causing restrictions due to thought processes that create physiological changes in the body.
Imagery and dialogue-voice dialogue for assisting the body to identify and heal.
Obstetrics-Cranio Sacral Therapy used in pre natal, delivery and post natal for challenges and relaxation and EASY living.
Pediatrics-using Cranio Sacral therapy for birth challenges
