Also referred to as EEG Biofeedback, or Neurotherapy and Brainwave Training, it is a painless, non-invasive, learning strategy that enables people to change the activity of their brains so they can be free from unpleasant symptoms and function at their best. It is a technique used to directly train the brain to function more efficiently while allowing the brain to self-regulate its mental, emotional, and physical states of being.
Neurofeedback addresses specific issues related to brain dis-regulation including the mood fluctuations, focus and attention challenges, behavioral disturbances, various sleep issues, head & other pain experiences, hormone imbalances, and other emotional disturbances. It is also useful in helping regulate conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy.
This cutting edge approach also has applications in peak performance in areas such as Business, Education, Sports, and the Performing Arts, as it improves the overall performance and functioning of an individual.

Balanced Transformations philosophy is simple, give the body what it needs and it will heal itself. Christian is well-versed in all kinds of nutritional, and holistic therapies that promote healing from the inside out, allowing the body to cleanse and balance itself, and ultimately to thrive. She recognizes that every body is different with very different lifestyles and we strive to create a highly customized program specific your body’s needs.
I do not advocate any one specific way of eating. I believe every individual has distinct dietary needs based upon genetics, lifestyle, gender, stress levels, how they ate as a child, current state of health, and future health goals. Therefore, I focus on bio-individuality, while imparting a positive and empowering perspective shift around food that results in greater lifelong food flexibility.
While most nutritional practices dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins and restrictive "good and bad" foods, Balanced Transformations philosophy provides clients with the ‘tools’ to create happier, healthier lives in a way that is flexible, fun and free of willpower and denial. Emotional happiness and well-being come from living in a vibrant body. As your food changes for the better, your biochemistry improves, and as a result your mood, energy levels and outlook on life improve as well.
The Balanced Transformations approach to nutrition also focuses on elements that nourish other than food, including honest and open relationships, a meaningful spiritual practice, a career that inspires, understanding the emotional roots to physical illness, and embracing movement you enjoy. I refer to these elements as Primary Food and address each of them in all of my programs so that your life and perspective can truly transform. By creating a balance between the clinical aspects of health, primary foods and the food one eats everyday, people experience gradual, yet steady positive changes in their health and well-being. This enables them to not only achieve their health goals, but to maintain them for life.

As your daily diet changes, your body changes and your health and happiness improve. Just for a minute, try to imagine feeling energy, vitality, and clear thinking, every day.

My passion is finding the synergy and balance between the brain and the body. The connection between your mind and your body is critically overlooked in today's society and problems are too often solved by medication. When in reality, there is actually just a simple imbalance of nutrition and brain stimulation that can be remedied simply by correcting a few behaviours.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, brain training and preventive health.
