Enhance learning

From the beginning, the brain goes through a series of constant changes to develop learning and other processes.  This transformation is what we call neuroplasticity and it can be used to balance the brain in a manner that optimizes learning and focus.  Learning brain imbalances are often given simple titles (ADHD, Dyslexia, etc.) with little explanation of what is actually going on.  At North Shore Brain Balancing, you will receive an explanation and treatment options that you may have never encountered in the past.

The Cerebellum in the brain is where most input starts into the brain and it is very crucial, because if there is an imbalance in the cerebellum then there will be an imbalance 'downstream' in the rest of the brain.

The cerebellum imbalance is fun to watch patients experience it get better as it is a very tangible thing.  A persons actual balance is tied straight to the cerebellum, so when that part of the brain gets better it is directly reflected in a person's balance.  go ahead, stand on a piece of foam and test your balance now, likely you will notice yourself swaying left or right, or even front and back which is another issue that we discuss in the office in depth.

Those of you that are active know this sense of balance and not only how it can affect performance, but also decrease chances of injury drastically, both on a micro and macro trauma level.
