A retired chiropractor “Jeff” (a friend of Michael Cohen, the director) had suffered from migraines for 30 years. One evening he got a severe migraine and called Mike at 10:30 p.m. in excruciating pain. He was considering going to the hospital. He reported when this level of migraine occurred, there was no way to stop it for many hours.
Alex, a 50-year-old man, struggled for 25 years with migraines and OCD. The migraines were often crippling and contributed to a feeling of constantly being tired and very unproductive.

There were times when Dr. Katie M.* wondered how she was going to make it to the end of her work day. A 71-year-old internist with a busy practice in a major Northeast city, she started out her day exhausted, anxious, panicked, and depressed. And it only got worse.
Today, she says she’s a “different person,” thanks in large part to the services she received at the Center for Brain Training.
My 8-year-old daughter had experienced a high degree of anxiety that did not allow her to interact with other children very well. She could not let anybody else control the situation or let somebody else be the leader in a game. She was very rigid in all social situations.

Before my six-year-old son began (EEG) biofeedback I would describe him as a little boy encased within an opaque bubble. He would ride in a car for 21 hours and never ask if we were there yet, or ask to get out of the car for any other reason unless he was hungry or had to use the restroom.
John, age 9, was painfully shy. He was very quick to get upset and cry. He also had difficulty with attention and struggled with reading and writing. He was not doing well in school. His mom was very concerned.
