braintap headphonesWe are thrilled to introduce BrainTap – an auditory-visual brain wave entrainment gizmo that’s basically a mini-spa treatment for the mind and spirit.

The first time I experienced it, I knew this was something very special. Fifteen minutes and it felt like I’d had a weekend long relaxing getaway. The first 5 minutes were OK, but then the mind opens, the breath deepens, the muscles release and the remainder of the session feels like it should go on forever.

The power of BrainTap lies in three components: A) the device itself – providing programmed coordination of lights and sound to stimulate specific brain wave patterns associated with attention, calm reflection, or deep relaxation; B) the use of selected guided meditations to enhance and positively leverage these brain states; and C) numerous modules of thematically related sessions to reinforce and strengthen positive behavioral and psychological change.

Is stress interfering with your optimal performance? Do you have difficulty sustaining concentration and staying on task? Forty five unique sessions can be found in the “Stress-Free Me” module, ranging from “Meditation and Relaxation for a Peaceful Heart”, to “Allowing a Life of Health and Abundance”, to “Transforming Procrastination into Total Motivation”.
Other modules include “Wake-Up”, “Children and Learning”, “Weight Wellness”, “Go To Sleep”, and “Optimal Health” as examples.

Within each module, sessions may provide motivational guidance along with optimized light and sound patterns to stimulate specific brain activity, or be devoid of words, relying solely on the power of visual and aural cues to place the brain in its best spot.

This technology is so effective and so pleasant we’re sure you’ll want it to be a part of your weekly wellness practice. What better way to see if we’re right than to try it out for yourself. Give us a call and we’ll set up a time for up to two free sessions. The first will be an introductory 10-15 minute BrainTap journey to familiarize you with this transformative technology. Your second session offers any of the 100s of titles available. Once you decide to continue on a regular basis, our staff will work with you to develop a personalized program to attain your goals. Sessions are available on an individual “pay-as-you-go” basis for $20 each, or as a package of 10 for $150, offered Tuesday and Thursday mornings and all day Wednesday and Friday.

While using the headset is the most powerful way to experience BrainTap, listening to the guided meditations gives a good idea how motivating positive language can be! We encourage you to come in for a complete experience, but we are also happy to offer a free 15 day trial allowing unlimited access to all sessions thru a phone app. If you find this as beneficial as we think you will, you may be interested in subscribing for daily at home use to complement once or twice weekly in-office sessions with the head set.

For those preferring regular use in the privacy of their homes, headsets are available to purchase or to rent, and even on a rent-to-own basis.

Experience the extraordinary in mindful relaxation and peace. Experience a free session and you’ll leave with a smile on your face. Experience how you can feel calmer and more focused than you thought easily possible. Experience BrainTap!!!

Protecting our Patients from Coronavirus Disease Outbreak

Making sure our patients and staff are safe is our top priority. We know many patients are concerned about the spread of Coronavirus.

Our Promise to Our Patients:

We understand the obvious concern that coronavirus has brought to the area. We want to make you aware of the steps we are taking to protect our patients and team members in this time of uncertainty.

We request the following of patients:

  1. If you have traveled in the last 14 days to a country other than the U.S. where coronavirus has been diagnosed, or to any area in this country that has had a number of cases of concern (eg, Seattle, DC-NY metro area, parts of CA, etc…) please call the office to reschedule your appointment for next month or beyond.
  2. If you have any symptoms that mimic that of the coronavirus, which includes a fever or respiratory symptoms, including a cough, please call and reschedule your appointment at least 14 days from now.
  3. If you suspect that you have had direct contact with people who have been around any of the people who have tested positive for the coronavirus, please call us to reschedule your visit beyond 14 days from now.
  4. Remember to follow basic hygiene guidelines to avoid the spread of germs, which includes washing your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

Our staff will also follow these guidelines and will not be present at work if they exhibit any of the above-mentioned symptoms:

  1. Any eye doctor or team member who is sick is staying home
  2. We sanitize every piece of equipment after each use and again at the end of the day (as part of our precautions we always adhere to).
  3. We will sanitize all patient contact surfaces between every patient.
  4. Our team washes their hands often throughout the day
  5. If we don’t shake hands with our patients during this time, please don’t take it personally.
  1. Please call us with any questions or concerns, and if you feel it best for you or your family member to reschedule your appointment, feel free to do so.
  2. We do expect this to be an ongoing situation in our area for an extended period of time, and do not want our patients to neglect their eye care needs during this time. We will continue to give recommendations based on the evidence we have on safe delivery of eye care in a time of uncertainty.
