Paulette and her husband Paul opened Neuro Strength as a way to bring a cutting edge technology to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Neuro Strength, a fitness center for the brain, has been offering Brainwave Optimization™ since 2007. Since the beginning, it has been located in the Valley Office Park in Bloomington, MN, and has shared office space with the software development team of Brain State Technologies, for whom Paul serves as Director of Software Engineering.
Paulette was attracted to the process of Brainwave Optimization because of a great respect for its developer Lee Gerdes as well as a positive personal experience with the technology. For Paulette, optimization training brought an increased energy level and creativity throughout the day, a greater sense of calm and the minimizing of a terrifying fear of heights.
Paulette initially completed the Brain State Technologies™ Basic Training Course in , and has annually participated in Masters Technologist Training Programs and has achieved Masters Certification Level II. She continues to take educational courses offered throughout the year through Brain State Technologies and other organizations.
She received a BA from the University of Minnesota in Physiology and Social Work and worked in corporate wellness and benefits programs prior to raising a family. She has worked as a personal home health aide for the elderly, serves as a community volunteer, is a member of the Bloomington and Minneapolis Regional Chambers of Commerce and a member of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB).
Alina Janssen was drawn to Brainwave Optimization when she first learned of it on Conscious Media Network. Her initial experience with brain training created a lengthy list of positive shifts. She became a licensed affiliate in 2007, opening her Mind Symmetry office in Minneapolis, MN. In October 2009, Alina joined Paulette at Neuro Strength, bringing together their positive energy, collaboration and resources.
Alina received her BA from Gustavus Adolphus in Environmental Studies with a Studio Arts minor. She has also received certifications in Reiki 1, Oneness Blessing/Deeksha, Psych-K, Bars Access Consciousness, and Matrix Energetics.
“When closer to our natural balanced state we are more apt to act from a state of love. The ripple of our actions is infinite. I see Brainwave Optimization as a beautiful tool to help individuals achieve more peace in their lives; however, I believe the affects reach far beyond the individual.”
