INTRO TO THINK CLEAR MACHINE FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Meet the creator of this TGA approved medical device, Peter Missen, he will explain how it came about and what it can be used for.
The machine uses a patented design to deliver a special electrical signal to the body that calms the amygdala (part of the brain responsible for the fight or flight response, and helps protect us from danger and threats). which can sometimes be triggered by perceived threats, such as uncomfortable social interactions, and it can also be influenced by past experiences. The Think Clear machine works to promote relaxation and help the amygdala from overreacting to these perceived threats unnecessarily.
Other therapies can work with the ‘logical’ parts of the brain, but if the amygdala is activated and still perceives something as a threat, it may override the benefits of these therapies. Do you know anyone who suffers from anxiety, stress, sleepless nights, a busy mind that won’t stop?
Join us to listen to this amazing new technology that will change your life for the better.
We will also be running demonstrations of this remarkable device and talking about the 3 step method to get relief from Anxiety and PTSD at our exhibit throughout the weekend. Be sure to book in as they fill fast.

The emotional code- a simple way to release emotional baggage.
We all have trapped energies within our bodies creating imbalances. When we experience an emotion that is greater than our nervous system's ability to process, we store it in our body to deal with it later.
