I notice many improvements while in the trauma program. My sleeping issues have been resolved. This has been an issue for many years. I was on medication and treatment for that too. Today, I no longer take medication for sleeping and I sleep very well. My concentration went up and my isolation and energy problems have been resolved. BrainPaint was beneficial in healing the mind as well as the body.
