When people feel "relaxed," they're actually feeling the sensation of the back cortex of the brain transmitting serotonin to the frontal cortex through a mild sedative, or they've been hit by a tranquilizer dart. Get calm with this Groupon.
- $44.99 for a brainwave assessment and consultation (a $175 value)
During the brainwave assessment, technicians place noninvasive sensors along the scalp to read patterns of energy in the brain. The session lasts 90 minutes to two hours and allows the technicians to analyze which areas of the brain are more or less active than they should be. The assessment collects data while the brain is at rest (the clients sits quietly with his or her eyes closed) and while the brain is performing a task (the client reads out loud). During the consultation, the technicians divulge the results of the assessment to the client, and then they create an action plan to retrain the brain. This may help fight problems such as stress or insomnia.
Tones that sound almost like a woman singing flood the ears, a haunting, magical set of notes that is slowly joined by others that sound like a crooning whale meeting another of its kind. They sound otherworldly, and in a sense, they are, because what you're hearing is the brain conversing with itself. The notes are brainwaves as they are transformed into sound through a software. The brain recognizes the sound waves and responds to them in an effort to correct and optimize brain function.
The brain-optimizing process is performed by the neurological experts at BrainWave Harmony, who help clients make the most of their brain through noninvasive optimization sessions. During an initial assessment, they place sensors on the scalp to pick up brain signals and discover what areas of the brain are out of balance. Brain imbalances can cause ailments such as stress, insomnia, and depression, which the technicians attempt to fix with the sound-wave software.
