Located in the heart of the Humboldt-Toiyabe national forest, the largest national forest in the lower 48, this spectacular newly renovated historic home boasts 2 large suites, and two large rooms with shared bath, and can sleep as many as 21. Just 45 minutes from downtown Las Vegas, this unique residence provides scheduled Healthy Brain retreats that address the biological and electrical imbalances underlying the majority of mental health issues. Healthy Brain retreats can be intensive 10-day experiences, or a more leisurely 30-day retreat. Healthy-Brain retreats can be scheduled for individuals, families, or groups up to 20.
Our Healthy Brain Approach arises out of the extensive neuroscience recognizing that everything we think, say, feel, and do; and how we think, say, feel, and do, is a result of the chemical/electrical reactions we call neurotransmission. We know that when the chemical side is in good balance, good mental health generally occurs. We now know that when the electrical side is in good balance and well connected, adverse mental health symptoms are reduced or eliminated entirely. The traditional medical approach to this understanding is to treat the chemical imbalance with chemicals. The problem with that approach is that we can not introduce a chemical into one part of the brain without affecting other brain-region activity, ergo the long list of side effects associated with any pharmacological approach.
Our Healthy Brain approach has been used by many of our clients at the Las Vegas Neurofeedback Center, with excellent results In our outpatient clinic, most clients complete the Brain-training portion of the Healthy Brain approach in 3-4 months. In our retreat settings, we Brain-train an average of twice daily, for a total of 20 sessions. In longer, more leisurely retreats, we brain-train daily.
