Before biofeedback, people could only boost their memory by tying strings around their fingers, making it impossible to keep track of more than 10 tasks at once. Stay on top of things with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a seven-point brain-wave assessment at Optimize Me in Hillsboro (a $120 value).
Stacey, a Brain State Technologies master level II practitioner, and Optimize Me’s staff of skilled technicians sleuth out the source of mental tribulations with seven-point brain-wave assessments. The assessments prepare clients to optimize their mental powers through the Brain State program, which has earned praise from Grammy winner Wynonna Judd in People magazine. A questionnaire probes clients for health histories, favored Elizabethan fashions, and brain-related concerns, which may include difficulty concentrating or poor memory of Elizabethan fashions. Clients review a list of 20 goals and select five areas to focus on before an EEG measures brain activity. As small sensors cling to scalps, clients first relax and rest, and then complete simple tasks such as reading aloud or translating Old English texts into Flemish. Using data from the EEG, technicians create a plan for meeting clients’ goals through Brain State biofeedback sessions.
