Story Image

Christian was always the one that went to the birthday party and blew out the other child’s birthday candles.

Afterwards, he realized that it wasn’t his birthday and that he shouldn’t have done that. He was the kid who loved to swim, but would scream when he jumped in the pool. I’m a special education teacher, specializing in early intervention, so this is basically what I do for a living. There are several things that I had noticed just because of my background, and there were several things that I had to fight at first. I had dabbled in Dr. Melillo’s book over the years, so I was familiar with it, but didn’t apply it. I went to hear him speak with my friend whose son had already gone through the program. When Dr. Melillo kept talking about the right brain being the gas pedal and the left brain being the brake or vice versa, I just kept thinking about that birthday story.christian-02

Christian loved going through the program. He’s one of those kids that enjoys the attention and wants to be an athlete, so he felt good about himself getting stronger physically. I would say, “Wow, I noticed that you threw the ball far enough for Joey to catch it! You know, that’s because you got stronger at Brain Balance.” I’ve seen him being able to control his impulses now, and he’s very aware of his progress. He’ll say things like, “I have anger management issues,” and that’s something that he recognized on his own. The program has definitely helped him. I think we still have work to do, but it’s definitely made a difference for him, both mentally and physically.
