Relax Your Brain. Optimize Your Life.
Because Life Happens
Brainwave Optimization® has helped over 100,000 people worldwide to overcome physical and mental challenges or blocks to their success.
It is a safe, non-invasive tool to help individuals who wish to make a life change, ultimately from the inside out.
Promotes Deep RelaxationThrough a process of deep relaxation, like meditation, your brain’s activity can more fully relax and let go of stuck patterns. Relaxation and meditation have long been used to help individuals achieve states of wellness and wellbeing. Brainwave Optimization is a tool to catalyze this process.
Brain Rhythms Self-OptimizeWhen relaxed, your brainwave activity tends to reorganize and optimize itself to reclaim your limitless possibilities. No one can comprehend the complexity and uniqueness of your individual brain. Your own brain knows best what to do for itself.
Your Own Unique ProcessIt is your process. This wellness process is entirely up to you and your own unique brain. Due to stress and trauma we all can get stuck and block our own progress. Brainwave Optimization is like a rope waiting for you to grasp and climb your way out.. Everyone’s experience is completely unique and different.
Dynamic FlexibilitySince life happens, we have no right to expect that we can always be in balance. Like the weather, life events – and your brain – are always in a constant state of change. The key is to have the dynamic flexibility to deal with whatever comes your way and allow you to weather the storm.
we optimize our
entire life. Lee Gerdes
What Is Brainwave Optimization?
Brainwave Optimization® is a computer-guided way to help you to achieve a uniquely deep state of relaxation, through the power of your own brain. A deeply relaxed brain may support a variety of goals for well-being, recovery, or performance optimization.
Brainwave Optimization acts as a catalyst to support the brain to optimize itself – to move itself naturally in its own way, its own time and on its own terms.
Brainwave Optimization facilitates the brain to adjust its own brainwave activity, in order to balance and optimize itself.
The revolutionary Brainwave Optimization process is uniquely valuable in that it supports one’s own brain to do its own work, in a way unlike any other approach that has come before.
How is Brainwave Optimization Different?
Brainwave Optimization is based on advanced biometric data collection, or the measurement of an individual’s own unique biological signals.
Brainwave Optimization is different from other approaches in that it uses precision measurement devices and sophisticated algorithms to produce a high-resolution acoustic mirror of your brain’s activity in real time. Your brain frequencies are translated into sound frequencies that you listen to through headphones.
Brainwave Optimization’s advanced proprietary process converts this unique and complex data stream into a progression of music-like tones, providing a real-time reflection of one’s own brainwave activity.
The technical term for Brainwave Optimization is HIgh-resolution Relational Resonance-based Electroencephalic Mirroring – HIRREM® for short.
Self-Optimize Brainwave RhythmsBrainwave Optimization is a revolutionary non-invasive neurotechnology to empower the brain to optimize its own brainwave activity, in its own way and on its own terms. Every person and every brain are unique, and we do not box you into what others might consider to be normal.
Increase Dynamic FlexibilityBrainwave Optimization promotes deep relaxation, meditative calm, self-balancing and dynamic flexibility. The brain evolved at a time when nature changed little over thousands of years. Today, human life changes by the minute or the second. Dynamic flexibility is more important than ever.
Heal From The Inside-OutBrainwave Optimization can help you to reclaim your own innate wellness – from the inside out. Brainwave Optimization is not a medical device or therapy, and is not intended for diagnosis, treatment or cure of medical or psychological diseases or disorders.
Brain WellnessHelp your brain to help itself release stuck brainwave activity. Since the brain is the master controller of the body, when the brain is functioning more optimally, then your entire being will benefit.
Stress and trauma compromise and undermine our overall well-being. Stress and trauma, physical and/or emotional, can cause the brain to get “stuck”. The brain is the master regulator and therefore is the key to mediate the effects of this stress on one’s body, its systems and overall well-being. Brainwave Optimization® helps the brain, help itself, to get “unstuck” and return to a state of optimal functioning.
Brainwave Optimization harnesses the power of advanced computing technology to create a high-definition Acoustic Brain Mirror™. This real-time reflection of brainwave activity generates a pattern of music-like tones, which in turn supports and accelerates the brain’s ability to achieve deep states of relaxation where it can fully let go and reset itself. Trauma and chronic stress can overwhelm the brain – when the brain resets itself, it will self-optimize to improve well-being and return to a highly capable state.
For example, if one cuts their finger, the healing process is driven by their own natural processes and resources. The capacity for this recovery is a basic property of all living things. Brainwave Optimization supports the brain’s own innate and natural ability to use its own resources to recover. The brain is like a musical instrument that has been knocked “out of tune” by trauma or ongoing stress. Brainwave Optimization helps the brain to “re-tune itself” like an instrument in the middle of an orchestral performance.
What Is Brainwave Optimization?
Brainwave Optimization is a computer-guided way to help you to achieve a uniquely deep state of relaxation, through the power of your own brain. A deeply relaxed brain may support a variety of goals for well-being, recovery, or performance optimization.
How Does It Work?
This process harnesses advanced computing technologies to create an “acoustic brain mirror” for your brain activity. Biometric sensors are placed on your scalp, non-invasively, to read your brain rhythms with great precision. Software translates this brainwave activity into sounds of different pitch and timing. These sounds are played back to you through earbud headphones, in real time. This self-reflection process supports the brain to bring itself to a deeply relaxed state. From this state, the brain tends to reorganize its own rhythms, on its own terms.
Who Is It For?
Brainwave Optimization is for individuals who wish to make a life change from the inside-out. It is for those who believe that they have inner resources that, if accessed, can provide them with a path that meets their own unique needs. It is not a treatment or therapy for medically defined disease or psychological disorders, and it is not way to diagnose diseases or disorders. Trauma and chronic stress can lead the brain to become “stuck,” and individuals with such history are especially likely to benefit from gaining a deep state of relaxation. When the brain deeply relaxes and resets itself, it can self-optimize to improve health, wellness and well- being. It may also alow the recovery overall functionality and even increase one’s performance abilities.
What Are The Benefits?
The benefits are produced through you and your own brain. The role of Brainwave Optimization is to facilitate a state of relaxation and flexibility of brain rhythms – from there you and your brain can produce greater well-being, enhanced performance and often other positive experiences that no one even predicts. Our clients commonly report better sleep, relief from pain, release of chronic stress or trauma, improvement in areas of cognitive difficulties or learning challenges, and reduced addictive tendencies.
What Is The Research?
Since 2011, research has been conducted at Wake Forest School of Medicine, using Brainwave Optimization for a variety of specific health objectives. This research has been supported by independent (non-commercial) sources, totaling over $2.5 million dollars. Including, grants from the Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation, Inc., the United States Department of Defense Special Operations Command and the United States Army Research Office. Further information on this research is available at www.wakehealth.edu/hirrem.
This research has resulted in peer-reviewed presentations accepted at 14 major academic and scientific conferences since 2012, and five published full-length manuscripts.
The Brainwave Optimization® process begins with an assessment to create a custom starting place for your unique brain. Most clients will begin with a series of four to seven two-hour sessions usually over a course of two to five days. This is called a Brainwave Optimization Intensive, Many clients may notice a shift within a session or two. At the end of the week a client can see how their own brain has started moving itself towards a more flexible state. Frequently, some of the most meaningful benefits are experienced several weeks to months after sessions are completed.
