Dr. Jo Anne Grace explores the dynamic relationship between the brain and the central nervous system, and shares six-steps to keep the brain healthy.

Dr. Jo Anne Grace reviews the body connection between the brain, the mind and the spirit, as she discusses the latest research about the effectiveness of neurofeedback, a method for balancing brainwave activity and changing your emotional and behavioral reactions. During the presentation, experience how a healthy brain is a happy brain through six different steps: feed the brain, exercise the brain, balance the brain, train the brain, program the brain, challenge the brain. These brain health exercises have positive effects for anxiety, ADD/AHDD, chronic pain, concussions/TBI, depression, grief, insomnia, memory loss, panic attacks, PTSD/PTG, stress and trauma, and can be used to increase performance and activate executive brain functions.
