During my stay here, I found BrainPaint to be interesting as it can pin point my thoughts correctly every session. I notice many improvement in this treatment. It could also be a multitude of reasons as I am receiving treatment in other area’s as well. I do find nevertheless that my sleeping has been resolved. This has been a issue for many years, I was on medication and treatment as well for that issue. Today, I no longer take medication for sleeping and I sleep very well. My concentration went up and my isolation and energy has been resolved as well.

In conclusion, I do feel BrainPaint beneficial in healing the mind as well as the body.
