I fight but i am back
Three years ago I fell with my bike and I suffered a major concussion. After 3 days of rest I resumed my work, as good and bad as it went. In the course of time I noticed that I had all kinds of "vague" complaints, could not stand sounds, was quickly tired, emotional, headache, and so on, I dragged myself through the day as it were. Was in my bed around 8:30 pm every evening and needed more than an hour to get started in the morning. I have a very busy job with a lot of responsibility and also a busy social life. Nice, but not for me anymore. While I have always had a turbulent life it broke me up and I was completely extinguished early this year. I could not hold on any longer. I tried everything to get fitter. Some things helped a little or temporarily, however, I started to doubt myself and really didn't know what I could do to be fit and vital again. I will never forget the day I met MTB and had my intake. This day was for me the day on which I became clear that something was wrong with me and that the complaints I had had an explanation and were real! My head boiled, that's how it felt for me. Nobody understood what I meant by that, but at MTB she understood what was going on. I started the 2-week intensive treatment shortly after the intake. You will be asked to start a preparation process prior to this training. You receive an assignment with food and daily. Proper preparation for these weeks is important. The program is varied, the basis is the neuro feedback training, there was also boxing training, yoga, walking, personal conversations, all very intensive, but the program offers all the space and time for yourself that you need.Carla 
She is back

As a keeper, our daughter Veerle (19) has had a number of strong collisions in recent years. We ended up in the hospital twice. After the check, keep the advice calm and it will come well ..... we thought. Because you see your daughter every day you do not notice so quickly that it is always a small one goes a little less. Signals such as fatigue, poor sleep, overstimulation and listlessness sneak into the pattern slowly. There were no solutions. It was like parents to be discouraged To become. Until we read a newspaper article from Movethebrain where the recognizability was so great was that we immediately had an intake planned. The brain scan of the intake told us enough. Many disruptions but happy to resolve. Veerle has in consultation with the Movethebrain team opted for the intensive two-week training. Not just neurotraining but the complete package of movement, relaxation, resilience, structure and goals. This was for Veerle de perfect way to get better. Partly due to the knowledge, professionalism and positive thinking from the team we see Veerle getting a little better every day. The negative symptoms are exchanged and brought positivity. She is now an active, positive, cheerful girl who is more self-aware and has set goals that she will achieve in the future. Even if it just doesn't work there is always someone on hand who has tips of encouraging words to make Veerle one more step to help forward. In the last scan we had that Veerle clearly see them has made great strides and that her brain is working again at the level that is needed to again actively participate in the world around her. As a parent, what you want for you Children. Movethebrain thanks for the support of Veerle and us.

Courage to do things again
I have the courage to do things again, to take up challenges and to enjoy life again. In addition, the process has provided many tools for further interpretation of life in the future and, in addition, to provide guidance when things are even more difficult. I would definitely recommend the personal guidance. It is a good program, trainers with a big heart and very competent. It is a nice move in the direction of recovery.
Learn enough
I was uncertain, I felt as if I had been left to my own devices. And I could not find the right practitioners and lots of conflicting advice. This caused a lot of frustration. I experienced the program as very positive. The team was warm and involved with an eye for everyone personally. I have received hope and a safety net + handles. I can warmly support the program for everyone.Sanne
Accident

After a ski accident, our daughter Eva (then 13) fell on her head, she has had many treatments from various doctors and therapists. These treatments did help, but Eva continued to suffer from headaches, difficulty concentrating, tiredness and irritability. She could only go to school and sport top, go to parties or other activities. The two-week training was intensive and tiring for her, but she already noticed after a few days that the exercises were successful and that she was getting more energy.

The alternation between the different types of therapy was nice. Eva, as the only non-adult, felt at ease in the group and found the trainers all equally nice and involved. It was good to share and be with fellow sufferers. Now, a month and a half after intensive training, Eva's recovery is still on the rise. She goes to school a little more every week, feels better, has a lot less headache and can tolerate better. There is laughter in the house again and she is again fashioned with her brother. She also has the sense and energy to speak with friends. Sometimes she is tired after a busy week, but she no longer gets a headache. We as parents, but also Eva herself, would certainly recommend Move The Brain to others. The intensive combination of the different types of training was more effective for Eva than the individual therapies they received from the rehabilitation center. Eva herself said that it is about her and about being able to focus her.

Uncertain

My situation before the training was uncertain. Little support and trust is given from regular care. With occupational therapy I certainly had good guidance, but the recovery process was slow. The intensive training was very intensive, but also a lot of time for relaxation and sportiness in a quiet environment. It was also very nice to be with a group of 'fellow sufferers'.

We have lived in a bubble for two weeks and time has flown by. I am now 6 weeks further and I notice that things are getting better every week. It remains a process in which you have to keep taking your moments of rest. I apply many elements of the training to my daily schedule. Every week I can expand my schedule.

So I am in a positive flow! I would absolutely recommend the training. The personal guidance was very good. I have been given many handles to continue to experience improvement. And besides that I am again confident that everything will be fine!

Thankfull
My 16 year old docher is 3 years ago and since then has had various complaints every day. headache, dizzy, nausea, tired, etc ... This year, her exam year, she went home from school when she could no longer. She was completely stuck. In the hospital I had several examinations (including one) and had references, but nowhere a diagnostic. This made it clear that my daughter's complaints had a reason. They had a Post Commotional Syndrome. Finally recognition and recognition! But also sadness. Within a week she could already go for an internal treatment of 2 weeks. Exciting, but how ready she was! These 2 weeks were hard work for our daughter but also really nice. The others in the group had the same symptoms, that gave a bond and the neurotrainings soon improved her symptoms. In addition to neurotraining, she did yoga, learned breathing exercises, and had conversations with a coach about how to proceed on this route. We had a very enthusiastic daughter on the phone every evening! For us as parents it was even relaxing in those 2 weeks. Even distancing yourself from ... No matter how difficult that was, it was necessary. Returning home was difficult after the 2-week internship. She had had such a good time there and had to get used to it at home. She was also busy at home with what she had learned as an intern. That was difficult, but after a week of rest they started applying for a part-time job. She now works three times a week for a few hours a day and she goes there by bike! Additions she goes to the physio twice a week to continue building her condition. She comes home enthusiastically every day with stories of what she has experienced that day. Next school year she still wants to get her diploma! What a difference with 2 months ago! From powerless, hopeless to confidence in the future !! Marieke and Dewi  I'M BACK!
Go with the flow
Being able to go along with the flow of the life of our young family again. Experience and celebrate life. With another positive outlook on the future. That has brought me intensive training at Move The Brain. After I sustained an injury two years ago after a fall on my head I kept having complaints. The main complaints were hypersensitivity to many external stimuli such as light / sound / movements, my head getting stuck and persistent mental fatigue. After a rehabilitation period I had received many handles. With all the adjustments I tried to get the strings in my hands again. Keep fighting and building up towards my old level, but this was difficult. The limitations and hindrance kept a grip on my life. Do I have to accept this life with these complaints and limitations? Fortunately I came in contact with Move The brain. After the intake and QEEG I was eligible for the intensive training. That was a spicy sensation. Finally my complaints and limitations came into the picture and there was an explanation for everything. The training period is intensive mentally and physically. In which a nice and also professional group of people supports you. A period in which many beautiful insights have arisen, many emotions have passed by and where I found myself again. Looking proudly at myself and my qualities. Become stronger on a mental and physical level and thereby lay a good foundation. During the period my incentive sensitivity has been trained. It is no longer there! This gives so much peace and space in my head. My thinking processes are so much easier and more streamlined. As a result of which my mental energy has increased enormously. The downward spiral has been transformed into a positive, grateful and energetic spiral with a future full of dreams and new opportunities! So ..... Go with the flow and celebrate life!Lizet
recovery new hope
Before I started this training I was very confused about my recovery. Despite having gone through various trauma-related therapies and treatments for neurological problems, it always felt like a storm in my head, like I had a short fuse. I felt too much tension and stress, which was daily, physical torture.Short of a miracle, our association came into contact with the super popular Schorel and I was able to learn more about their objective and recovery programs. After a 2-week internal training, where I finally came to rest despite my symptoms, I felt that I was reborn.It is just bizarre what neuro training can do to a person. The combination of the various techniques of the program really balanced me out and gave me some insights. The first weekend my partner had already noticed changes in my behavior, as well as how relaxed I was. I finally had some peace of mind and this gave me the resilience to carry on.After the training you must be mindful not to step back into old patterns. Now I feel good, I feel strong. Of course I sometimes have a bad day, I would be lying if I said I didn’t. But I know the state I was in at the start of this recovery process, I know if I keep on the recovery route that I will be back to baseline, and above all I know that I’m on the right path. I would therefore highly recommend this program.Ymo Hartzema
I am much better
After intensive training I found myself in a rather hopeless situation. After the rehabilitation process for my brain bruise in the hospital, half a year had passed but unfortunately I saw almost no improvements.I still felt very tired, was often nauseous, over-stimulated, and couldn’t participate much in my family life. My rehabilitation doctor told me that I had to take into account that after five years I would probably be free of complaints. I took this news really hard and felt enormously frustrated.My doctor drew my attention to treatments in America and I ended up at Move the Brain. From the beginning the staff was very welcoming and I started the program quickly after the initial intake.This really was one of the best choices I have ever made. I was nervous and I didn't know what to expect from it. I also didn t want to get my hopes up that it would work. Those two weeks were hard work, but it was worth it, it really helped me a lot. The entire program is very well coordinated and goes much further than just neuro training. I thought I would only receive help for my bruise, but this went much further. A nice coach, sports, good food and especially the conversations with the other clients made the experience very enjoyable.It was also refreshing to be in an environment where you don;t have to constantly explain how you feel, because everyone is experiencing the same issues. After the training I felt much more positive and I could handle much more than before. Of course I am not quite fully recovered yet, and I have to make sure that I get enough rest, but the difference after the program is huge.I can go out with my children again, I can focus better, I have more inner peace, I can do longer days at work, and I can exercise again. All of these improvements are very satisfying and has brought back my self-confidence.The personal guidance was and is still very prevalent. Everyone is very involved and we all have a lot of contact with our fellow clients from the program, and we help each other through difficult moments along the way. I had a great time at Move the Brain and I remember it fondly. I would recommend it to anyone!Michiel O.
back in life
Before the training I was overjoyed with sound, light and bustle. I was mainly at home. Occasionally for message outside, but everything dosed. Social agenda at a very low level. Could not watch TV. Computer and cell phone use possible to a limited extent.Have a conversation on the phone or physically very intensive and tiring. In addition, I slept very poorly and had little energy. I have experienced the intensive training as very positive. First of all the guidance from all different disciplines was great. All very involved and cooperative. It felt like a hot bath, even though it was heavy. Also doing this process with a group of fellow sufferers was very pleasant. You understand each other and you can share your experience. We are still in contact with each other.Im doing a lot better. I am not there yet but the worst incentive is over. Can slowly pick up my social contacts again and have more energy. In addition, I sleep much better. I have to listen and dose to my body. That sometimes goes wrong. Then I go over my limit, do too much in my enthusiasm. In the training weeks I received tools how to deal with this recoil. That helps me to look into the future with confidence again.I would definitely recommend it to others and have already done so. The guidance is very personal and continues after these weeks. I no longer had a normal life for intensive training and now I can slowly build it up again. I dont know if I will be completely old again and that sometimes makes me uncertain, but I still notice a rising line!Esther
