How it Works - Bay Area Brain Spa

How it Works

Prepare for your session:

  • Sign waivers and pay online
  • Wear comfortable clothing that you can relax in
  • Bring a pair of comfy socks as we are a shoes-off space
  • Avoid wearing perfume or scented fragrance the day of your session
  • You are welcome to bring an eye mask and your personal headphones or earbuds 
  • Use the bathroom before you arrive if possible

In the Brain Spa:

  • Wear a mask and sanitize your hands when you arrive
  • Remove your shoes and silence your phone.
  • You will be shown to a seat, situate your belongings.

 

For Neurofeedback:

    • A trainer will use a bit of conductive paste to connect 3 little sensors to your ears and 2 to your scalp to read your cortical activity.
    • You will wear headphones and listen to relaxing music for 33 minutes (45 min extended version available).
    • During the 33 minutes of your brain training, there will be skips in the music which is the feedback to your brain.
      • you may nap, read, meditate, quietly work or use your phone during your session.
      • Please do not eat or talk while you are training.
    • When the music finishes please remove the headphones to signal the trainer to assist you in taking off the sensors
    • Enjoy the rest of your day as your brain continues to integrate and optimize for many hours after your session.  Watch for surprises.
