A psychological testing and mindfulness treatment program administered on a tablet in your medical office


 

"WellBrain's mindfulness exercises helped me recover from a painful shoulder injury so that I can get back to doing what I love most."

It's measurable mindfulness with monk power.

It all started in Northern India where for nearly a year we lived and studied and collected the brainwaves of meditating Tibetan monks. Later using machine-learning computers to evaluate the data, we produced a unique mindfulness algorithm which blends with a revolutionary bio-feedback tool to help people gain more focus, calm and clarity. Returning a year later to Tibet, the Chief Medical Officer of the Dalai Lama thought WellBrain was an effective tool for their monks who were persecuted by torture. We realized that if it could help the monks, then it could help people and patients around the world.

Use our evidence-based treatment to help your patients relax and improve their mental well-being. Help diagnose and quantify psychological illness. Teach mindfulness based therapies in your office, and recommend home based mindfulness-based treatments to enhance and empower your patients.

WellBrain represents a paradigm shift in the assessment and treatment of patients with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other mental health disorders. Help your patients. Help your practice. Help mankind.

How It Works

Simple. Efficient.

Data Driven

Mindfulness training is very well-researched and positively impacts multiple medical and mental health conditions. Many disease and mental health states have been shown to be favorably affected by routine mindfulness. The process is risk free and has no harmful side effects.

Recent studies have shown that when behavioral interventions are made in the doctors office, they are much more likely to be effective over the short and long term.

WellBrain allows you to immediately introduce patients to a very effective and proven therapy in your office and subsequently promotes a home-based treatment solution with our individualized WellBrain at Home solution.

“WellBrain helped me manage my pain better than years of opiates and surgeries combined. Their meditations saved my life.”

Despite over 100 million Americans suffering from chronic pain, and medical costs associated with chronic pain climbing beyond $600 billion dollars per year, the penetration of low-cost mindfulness therapies into chronic pain populations has been limited.
