The BRAINing Center Story
It all started when Mike Harrigan read an article about the benefits that brain training can have for senior citizens. Seeing his own parents struggling with age related issues, Mike decided to investigate the options available to help them.
Little did he know that this would turn into a multi-year hunt for a solution. He traveled the country, meeting with experts, taking brain health courses, and learning everything he could about the amazing field of neuroplasticity. What Mike discovered is that there is no single exercise or tool that addresses the many needs of the human brain. The brain is far too complex for that. Instead, if someone wants to improve overall cognitive health, they need do a variety of physical, cognitive and mindful exercises, often at the same time. Mike also found that this kind of multi-modal training not only enhances cognitive function, it also improves physical performance. In fact, this kind of training was being done with great success by elite professional athletes, and in expensive brain clinics.
The problem… you needed to be a professional athlete, celebrity or millionaire to get this kind of training. This was unacceptable. Everyone should be able to live their best, healthiest life. So Mike assembled an elite team of diverse experts, and together they spent a few more years building, testing, and refining various solutions.
POWER BRAINing™ is born!
POWER BRAINing™ is the most advanced training system available. It combines specific physical movements, multisensory cognitive challenges, controlled breathing methods and mindful meditations to target specific skills like memory, focus, processing speed and stress management while also improving balance, coordination, reaction time, dexterity, endurance and more.
It's too late for Mike to share his success with his mom and dad. But The BRAINing™ Cerner has helped countless people so far, and Mike keeps a picture of his parents in his office to remind him of The BRAINing™ Center’s mission: To give everybody the opportunity to think, move and feel their absolute best!
