Adam’s Brain Balance Journey
A patient that has been with Team Health Care Clinic for 15 years gives testimony of their treatment care with ADD. In 9th grade he was unable to read or write. We worked with him and were able to create a health plan to work around his school schedule.
Now Adam is thriving! He recently scored a 30 on his ACT.
The first step we take for patients in our Brain Balancing Program is to identify the reasons that the brain is not functioning optimally.
This can include:
Comprehensive blood panel of key wellness markers
Functional brain examinations
Brain nutritional assessments
Computerized brain and inflammation screening
Digestive function tests
EEG with digital analysis
Other in-depth tests
How do we help patients?
We are a team that work with patients that have neurological conditions. Together we provide the best care possible with our multispecialty providers. Our medical staff provides the best possible care to patients suffering from neurological conditions or brain-based disorders. All of our Brain Balancing patients have a unique care plan. No two people are the same, why should your treatment be?
We are proud to offer multiple types of treatments such as TMS, Neurofeedback and Neurosage. You may learn more about these treatments down below.

Improves Attention, Focus, Balance and Coordination
In Champlin With Neurosage
Neurosage is emerging digital technology that utilizes video games to actively target specific areas of the brain. Using specific frequencies of light and sound, this program is showing to have a targeted effect on functions like balance, coordination and cognition effects on brain function..
Neurosage is a non-invasive therapy that has a wide variety of clinical applications in regards to managing these symptoms including, but not limited to:
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Scientifically Proven Safe + Effective
Neurosage Therapy has over 15 years of study and application in a clinical practice. The NeuroLife Institute of Life University concluded its extensive research on Neurosage and found that it is safe to use and furthermore, was proven effective in increasing brain function, such as cognitive and balance parameters in the individuals studied.
Neurosage delivers a targeted amount of sensory stimulation via the eyes and ears to reduce discomfort, improve balance, coordination, endurance, focus, and cognition. Routine sessions with Neurosage have helped our users return to a happier and healthier life. With thousands of success stories with unprecedented record of results. The Neurosage Platform is in a class all its own.
Neurosage is non-invasive and non-pharmacological therapy platform. Stimulation is delivered through visual and auditory elements providing a safe and effective approach to therapy. While optimal to be fully immersed in both the visual and auditoy elements, the brain and body will still receive very effective stimulation if only 1 element is used. This provides users the opportunity to benefit in any environment.
Training Your Brain with Neurofeedback
How to Normalize & Balance Brain Function Naturally
Your brain is wonderfully complex.
In fact, every part of you is affected by your brain. You could therefore say it is the most important organ in your body.
What happens when your brain isn’t functioning normally?
Brain Disorders and Degeneration Are on the Rise
Brain Disorders affecting young and old alike. Modern diets, lifestyle, stress, environmental toxins and trauma can all contribute to brain degeneration, resulting in unhealthy patterns of brainwave activity.
Your brain consists of millions of nerve cells, which communicate with each other and send messages out to the rest of your body. This communication is measured as an electrical process (much like turning on a light switch which results in electrical “communication” causing the light bulb to illuminate). The brain’s electrical communication is measured in frequencies, or brainwaves.
Our brainwave activity affects how our brain performs, how we feel, how our bodies respond to stress and outside stimuli, even how our immune system responds to illness. If our brainwave patterns are unhealthy, it can result in a number of health challenges:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Memory Loss
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Sleep Disorders
- Poor Concentration/Lack of Focus
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Sleep Disorders
- Ringing in Ears
- Lack of Balance/Coordination

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
How Does rTMS Work?
rTMS is a medical grade magnet that is used to balance the speed of abnormal operating nerves in the brain. The magnet sends a signal that can be varied to stimulate or slow down the nerves in the specific regions.
rTMS For Depression
The normal pattern that scientists expect brains to work at is 15-20 pulses per second (pps) on the left front portion of the brain, also called the frontal lobe. Patients whose brains run below 15pps have symptoms that typically include depression.
rTMS For Anxiety
Normally, the left side of the brain works at a higher frequency than the right side.
When this pattern reverses, and the right brain works at a higher frequency, the individual often exhibits symptoms that doctors call anxiety.
This right brain dominance may be due to the right brain working too fast, or the left brain not working fast enough, or both.
Why Is Team Health Care Clinic A Unique resource for rTMS?
At Team Health Care Clinic, we have greatly improved the standard of care for rTMS treatments in three ways:
1. Unlike most rTMS providers, we do EEG guided rTMS. This means we assess the frequencies of the brain at 19 locations to determine each patient’s brain pattern. Using this information, we can give the patients the correct treatment to the specific area of the brain for the very best results. We also do repeat EEG’s at the 15th and 30th visit to assess progress.
2. Unlike some TMS units that can only treat at 10pps frequency, our state-of-the-art equipment can treat from 1pps to 20pps depending on the abnormal brain pattern. If we need to slow the brain, we can treat at the lower frequency. If we need to stimulate brain, as in depression, we train at a higher frequency.
3. We utilize our expertise in brain health nutrition to help our patients create the optimal environment for their brain to heal. This may include addressing, as necessary: blood glucose, neurotransmitter deficiency, brain-gut connections, gluten sensitivity, and other considerations.
Does Insurance Cover The Cost Of rTMS?
The cost of the treatments is covered by most primary insurance carriers for very specific forms of major depression.
Our office staff can help determine the coverage for your specific insurance plan.
What Do The Treatments Feel Like
During treatments, the patient will hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation.
Many patients watch television or read a magazine during treatment.
Some patients report mild discomfort or headaches post-treatment, but are able to resume their daily activities immediately following a session.
The minor side effects from rTMS are in sharp contrast with the side effects from medications which can include weight gain, cognitive impairment, sexual dysfunction and many others.
