Brain Balance Has a Non-Medical Approach to Help Your Child
Brain Balance is the leading drug-free program designed to help kids improve focus, behavior, social skills, anxiety, and academic performance. Our comprehensive programming incorporates learnings from cognitive, behavioral and nutrition fields—an integrated approach that is literally redefining what’s possible.
Is something blocking your child’s social, behavioral or academic progress? Brain Balance picks up where conventional approaches leave off, going beyond the treatment of symptoms to address root causes. At Brain Balance, we’re not about coping with barriers. We’re about knocking them down, one small breakthrough at a time.
Research Shows Brain Balance is Effective
A Harvard study found that kids who participated in the Brain Balance Program saw a significant reduction in ADHD index scores, discernible changes in hyperactivity, enhanced cognitive attention, and reductions in oppositional behavior.
We are continually collaborating with world class researchers to show the efficacy of the program and reveal through data how the Brain Balance Program can help children, teens and adults improve.

With a passion for children, Marissa pursued a degree in education receiving both her Master's of Education and B.S. in Education and Child Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Upon graduation, she taught in the general education setting for a few years working with grades 2-8. As she taught through the pandemic, she continued to see the need for individualized, holistic student attention continue to increase as the resources in school decreased. Feeling like she was not making the largest impact possible in her students' lives, she decided to take her expertise to Brain Balance where she is putting her education and experience to good use, providing students with the tools they need to succeed within the classroom and beyond!
