What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Among the best neurological treatments I have received. Dr Diamond is fantastic at working with you to create an individualized therapy program based around your specific needs. CS

I had a traumatic brain injury.  Nothing was helping me regain my brain functioning.  Then I heard about Neurofeedback.  It is the one treatment that is helping me to regain my brain function.  I am able to sleep better, concentrate better, meditate and I hardly have any headaches any more.  It is not an instant cure but worth the time and investment – nothing is more important then a functioning brain. Thank you Tom and your Neurofeedback therapy!

BF

An amazing team of brain health professionals. They’ve played a huge part in helping me increase my productivity and focus (not to mention helping me sleep better too). Highly recommended!

Do you always seem to be stuck in high gear?  Is it a struggle to take a break, relax, and sleep?  Are you either racing at full speed or dragging yourself through your day?  These are signs of a high-stress lifestyle that, if left unaddressed, can lead to anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue, aches and pains, perpetual colds, and other physical and mental health problems.

A stressful lifestyle locks your body in "fight or flight" reaction, where elevated cortisol and adrenaline levels spike blood pressure, deplete serotonin and growth hormone, overwhelm the immune system, and erode inner healing resources. 

It’s time to beat anxiety, sleep better and change your life.

Dr. Tom Diamond has helped many clients improve their response to stress and anxiety and sleep better.

 

I feel that these treatments have been a benefit to me and I incorporate what I have learned about breathing, relaxation techniques, body awareness and mindfulness at home and in my daily life.

I went to see Dr Diamond to help me with sleep.  Since using his services I no longer have to take melatonin to fall asleep and I am able to sleep through the night.
