RESILIENCY AND TRAUMA: How specialized brain exercise is helping our veterans and how it can help you.
Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe with special guest Pam Tarr from Homecoming for Veterans uncover new techniques in healing the mind and body through brain training. Learn how an effective therapy called Neuro Feedback works with the brain and how it can positively impact life after trauma. Topics will also include how our combat Veterans are finding significant relief from PTSD using Neurofeedback, and how it not only can help warriors coming back from combat but can also help anyone who is struggling with emotional or physical stress. Neurofeedback is frequently used by top athletes and sports enthusiasts to improve focus, mental acuity and physical performance and is proving to be an amazing and powerful tool in healing from the inside out.
