Computer programmer-turned-Brainwave Optimization specialist Diana Fay White uses cutting-edge technology for a mind-altering experience. 

Unbalanced brainwaves can wreak havoc on our well-being. Diana Fay White responded to her own out-of-sync brainwaves three years ago when she turned to Brainwave Optimization with Real-Time Balancing (RTB™) as a way to treat memory loss and concentration difficulties. "After 17 sessions," she says, "my memory came back, which was wonderful, but so many other things changed too, and [it was those changes] that got me here today."

Now an accredited affiliate of Brain State Technologies—the Scottsdale, AZ-based institute where the technique originated—White offers clients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological way to establish balance in the midst of life’s stressors. Located next door to the Latitude Sports Clubs in Peabody, Boston Brain Works offers a unique solution to insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, addictive tendencies, compulsive disorders, learning challenges, and a host of maladies that result when the brain’s right and left hemispheres are out of step with one another.

The actual experience is rather relaxing; clients sit in a reclining chair listening to tonal sounds combined with nature sounds—sometimes with eyes closed (many fall asleep), sometimes with eyes concentrated on a computer screen where brainwaves are visually translated. "This is fondly known as ‘meditation on steroids,’" says White of the therapy.

Employing computer and sound-based technology, Brainwave Optimization is a two-step process. First, an initial assessment identifies impaired brainwave activity. It’s followed by 10 to 12 intensive 1.5-hour sessions to restore the brain to its optimal state. Ideally, these sessions should take place within one week, though White accommodates clients’ schedules. The information gained during the assessment is combined with answers to two questionnaires and sent to a large central database, where software analyzes the results in terms of past cases to determine a client’s optimum treatment program.

People suffering from conditions compromising their quality of life often come to White at a breaking point. "Everyone wants a quick fix," she says. She wants people to understand that "this is a process, not an event." In describing how it works, White says, "Basically, it’s a tuning fork for the brain." Head injuries or emotional traumas can cause neurotransmitters to reroute; this technology guides them back to their original course. "Instead of a convoluted pathway, it creates a more direct pathway," says White. In other words, the brain seeks harmony between its two halves.

With an 85 percent success rate in improved brain function and benefits that include decreased stress, restful sleep, increased energy, ability to concentrate, heightened creativity, and, above all, a quiet mind, White says, "It all boils down to this: The noise is gone. It’s a whole different way of being." bostonbrainworks.com
