A Brain Balance Student from our Kalamazoo, MI location who suffered with Tourette Syndrome, OCD, and ADHD has shared his success through the Brain Balance Program in a letter to the center. Enjoy an excerpt from his letter below:
It all started when I was in Kindergarten. I had great friends, but I knew I was different. It wasn’t too bad until I entered early elementary that I noticed kids were making fun of me because of my problems. I had tourettes and had severe facial and body tics. All through school I was miserable, the kids that made fun of me and made me feel bad about myself didn’t even care.
I have been diagnosed with ADHD, Tourettes, and OCD. The ADHD made it extremely hard to focus, concentrate and sit still. The slightest sound would make me lose focus. I would have to move constantly when I was trying to pay attention. The Tourettes made me miserable. I would have tics, my body would freeze and I would be unable to move, and sometimes it would be hard for me to breath. The OCD made me obsessed with certain things…
The summer of 2011 was a changing point in my life. We had heard about a program called Brain Balance… Dr. Rowley told me he could help me, but I didn’t think it would work. I WAS WRONG!! I went to therapy in Kalamazoo every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a whole hour. I did this for 12 weeks. (my whole summer) Plus I had therapy to do at home three times a day seven days a week.
I am now in Tenth grade. This (is) the first year I have went to school without medicine. I feel good, I love football, I have lots of friends. But most of all I have NO Tourettes, NO OCD, and my ADHD is pretty much gone. I can do everything that my friends and brothers can do.

Clinical research indicates that neuro-behavioral disorders share an imbalance of electrical activity in the brain that we refer to as a Functional Disconnection. After completing a comprehensive assessment of your child’s brain and body function, your Brain Balance team integrates physical, sensory-motor, and cognitive exercises to correct the imbalance and improve motor function, which leads to a reduction or elimination of negative behaviors and symptoms.
