"Brain State Technologies help the brain learn new tricks
I am sitting with electrodes attached, computer on, eyes closed. My brain is listening to itself through ear buds and slowly trying to harmonize, lobe with lobe. The computer screen is recording my brain waves in squiggles and zigzags across a graph. Those colorful, squiggly lines represent the complete workings of my reality. The electrical impulses indicate that I am alive. The gongs and bells are taking over my head more and more. Then I become the gong.
Computers have rerouted and over-amped every part of our lives. Now they may help us cope with the glut of stimuli they have helped produce. Brain State Conditioning, a technology developed by Lee Gerdes, an Arizona-based cognitive therapist, computer geek and former theologian, aims to provide the tools necessary to deal with this onslaught of stimuli by activating networks of neurons (neuro-nets) and rebalancing our brain activity.
The technology incorporates brainwave imaging, audio prompting, plus visualization and relaxation techniques to help the subject reach a state of neural receptivity and balance. Once their brains are balanced, people experience relief from depression, ADD, ADHD, brain injury, sleep disorder, addiction and much more.
Pamela Bliss is the first to bring Brain State Conditioning technology to Indianapolis. Bliss (her given birth name) was first introduced to the process by her son Kyle, a carpenter who was working on a house that turned out to be owned by Lee Gerdes. Kyle decided to undergo intensive sessions, and his mother was so impressed with the results she decided to try it herself.
Eventually, she and Kyle both became trained practitioners in Brain State Conditioning. Pamela Bliss does not claim to be a therapist
