Using a variety of state-of-the-art technologies, we can measure and monitor your body in multiple ways, including heart rate variability, muscle tension, and brainwave patterns. This information is translated into engaging games or graphics that are used to gently guide the brain and body to follow more desirable patterns. This training is used with the ultimate goal of teaching the brain/body to produce these patterns on its own, without assistance.
This non-invasive treatment can help improve mental clarity, mood, sleep, concentration, attention, self awareness, emotional balance, and can reduce stress and anxiety. This technology can also enhance performance in a variety of fields such as sports and music, and can improve the depth of ones meditation practices.
Mindfulness & Qigong
Mindfulness is an ancient practice that involves learning to pay attention to and accept what is happening in the present moment without judgment. Qigong is a mindfulness practice that involves slow, gentle movements and often involves visualization and coordination of the breath. These practices improve the health and harmony between the mind and body and can be used for stress management, to boost immune functioning and improve balance, strength, and physical coordination.Continue Reading
Meditation & Relaxation through sound! Many cultures and traditions have used a variety of sound healing methods to create a balance in the body and mind. The vibrations generated by specific instruments such as crystal bowls and gongs can shift states of consciousness, alter brain wave patterns, and calm the nervous system. Energy Psychology, Qigong, and Yoga approaches also suggest that these frequencies can help cleanse and stabilize the subtle energy body. Sound Meditation is a technique that often leads to a number of positive benefits, including feelings of deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
Individual and group sessions are available and are offered by licensed psychologists who are also Qigong or Yoga Instructors.Continue Reading
What Clients Are Saying
"During the time when Dr. Tarrant got to the source of my tension in my shoulders and neck area, by following his instruction I was able to release tension and felt gentle vibration throughout my body but concentrating in my arms and hands. It proved to be a very pleasant and welcoming experience. Almost a spiritual experience."− D.K. (Body Scan CD)
"My 11-year-old daughter struggles with anxiety and stress, and has not had positive experiences with the few counselors she has seen. We are now focusing on breathing and meditation to alleviate her anxiety, and Healing Body Scan: A Mindfulness Meditation has been the perfect tool. She uses it nightly before bed, and has said that she likes how it relaxes her and seems to clear her mind. As a result, she seems happier and better equipped to handle potentially stressful situations."− A.R. (Body Scan CD)
"I want to tell you how much I truly enjoyed your seminar yesterday! I was excited when I signed up a few weeks ago but I had no idea how useful and informative it would be! I love the mind/body approach. You explained the research and the brain activity in such a clear and understandable way. Thank you also for the practical tools to use. The biofeedback, meditation apps, gratitude ideas (which I will definitely start using) the attitude qualities list, and Q process. Thanks for doing meditation and the QiGong activities. They are such wonderful tools ! I'm also excited to use your DVD. I learned so much yesterday and I'm so grateful I attended your seminar!! Thank you!"− G.T. (workshop attendee)
"Your seminar knocked my socks off. I was so amazingly thrilled at the substance of information you shared, your experiences and all the biofeedback. I already ordered my AV David set. And your incredible 'body scan' helped me through a difficult night where I had a vise like occipital headache. You are extremely gifted and an amazing, interesting and passionate presenter. Thank you so much for all the meaningful work...and healing work you do in this world."− E.K. (workshop attendee)

These are any techniques that utilize some form of technology as a central part of the treatment. Many of these interventions involve biofeedback, but other forms used in my practice include Audio Visual Entertainment (AVE) and Interactive Metronome.
Qeeg stands for Quantitative Electroencephalogram, often called a “brain map”, and is used to measure brainwave activity. This is done by placing a cap on the head with built in sensors. The cap is attached to an amplifier which transmits the electrical activity of the brain to the computer where the data can be evaluated. Analysis typically consists of comparing individual results to a large normative database. The analysis can be helpful in determining a treatment plan for neurofeedback training. For a detailed description of Qeeg See the article, “What is Quantitative EEG” by David Kaiser.
Most clients participate in sessions twice weekly. The number of total sessions varies widely depending on many factors. In general, a client can expect to participate in 20-25 sessions.
