PACIFIC NEUROTHERAPIES NEWS
The recent AAPB Conference in Chicago was fabulous! Thank you Dave Siever of Mind Alive for the invitation to speak and to share my experience working with trauma this last summer at the Calais Jungle refugee camp. There was some very exciting new research on the amelioration of amyloid plaque using gamma wave training… I’ll be sharing this in my seminar this coming summer at the Vintage House on “The Aging Brain”.
Sloan Johnson and Pacific Neurotherapies are excited to be continuing work on equipment that will be sold in the US and also sent (at no charge) to refugee camps to address trauma. Sloan originally developed this equipment to take with her when she spent time at the Calais Jungle refugee settlement in July and August of 2016. This equipment turned out to be very helpful in calming brain and central nervous system and allowing refugees to take a much needed break from their persistent trauma.
Pacific Neurotherapies was founded in 2004 by Sloan Johnson. Sloan’s background is in the whole systems, functional medicine approach to health care. As a practitioner she employs a wide repertory of neurofeedback and other modalities in accordance with the individual needs of her clients. She has a keen interest in the relationship between physiology, the brain, and quality of life. She has a great interest in helping to address quality of life issues with sustainable tools/methods, a sort of “physiological permaculture” (intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient).
She has studied various methods in Neurofeedback since 2001. She has had the great fortune to study with many of the masters and pioneers of the field. She is a longtime member of Homecoming For Veterans providing neurofeedback sessions free of charge to returning veterans. She ran the Chorten Gonpa Monastery Free Clinic in Gangtok, Sikkim, for a decade. In 2016 she developed equipment to take and treat the large refugee population in Europe.
She has been asked, and has contributed to peer reviewed published research studies, books, and has co–authored the Parents Guide to Brain Health for a Peninsula–based School system, the guide can be applied to people of all ages!
