Children explore their curiosity and develop social skills and moms exercise at WeePlay & Learn's 12,000-square-foot play and workout center. Playgroup classes held every day of the week encourage children to interact in groups divided by development level and favorite shape. Caring staffers engage emerging senses with music and movement, motor exercises, and toys in the WeeBabies play classes. Toddlers build confidence and fine motor skills as they clamber over equipment, and older tykes encounter ABC’s and 123’s for the first time so they can finally translate instructions and assemble their own playhouses. Preschoolers practice sharing as they learn more about the alphabet and experiment with musical instruments. Art decks the walls of the colorful, carpeted playrooms, where natural light floods through floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate children at play.
At Brain Fitness Hawaii, certified neurofeedback therapist Dr. Hana Yin uses holistic and noninvasive methods to help clients build up their brain power. To begin, she draws up each client's neural map, which is used to customize each training session for a range of therapeutic goals, from losing weight to growing a spare brain. An EEG machine provides a real-time readout of brainwave anomalies, allowing Dr. Yin to pinpoint exactly which areas need to be treated. Not only can brain training stimulate creativity and performance, but it has also helped past clients avoid or cure maladies such as food addiction, insomnia, and anxiety.
