WILLIAMSTOWN – The Sweetwood Lecture Series, a monthly event at Sweetwood of Williamstown highlighting a diverse array of interesting topics will continue Wednesday, April 18th with certified chiropractic wellness practitioner and certified LENS neurofeedback practitioner Dr. Peter May.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments at 4:00 p.m. will precede the lecture at 4:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Sweetwood, 1611 Cold Spring Road, Williamstown. Each lecture in the series takes place on the third Wednesday of each month.
“We look forward to the presentation by Dr. May, who is well-known in the community for his innovative wellness therapy,” said Sweetwood Executive Director John Krol. “This will be a fascinating discussion on the power of the mind and techniques on how it can be used to enhance your quality of life.”
LENS is a unique form of Neurofeedback that influences brain waves in such a way that allows the brain to get past and move beyond frozen dysfunctional patterns. Neuroscientists believe that the brain’s defense against stressors and trauma creates neural gridlock. The LENS is so subtle that it works around these defenses. Addressing the brain in its own electromagnetic language, LENS seems to open the way for the brain to ‘defragment and reboot,’ to optimize its function. Clearing the neural gridlock improves the flow of neural traffic, improving connectivity and communication within the brain. This results in: decreased anxiety, decreased depression, decrease in pain associated with fibromyalgia, migraine, and chronic pain syndromes, improved mental clarity, focus, and mood, increased energy, and better sleep.
LENS treatment is completely passive. The patient doesn’t Do-Take-Or Feel anything. For a fraction of a second, a tiny imperceptible electromagnetic radio wave signal is delivered. The brain interacts with the signal on its own and self-rectifies.
Dr. Peter May received his doctorate from The National College of Chiropractic, is certified LENS Neurofeedback practitioner and has licenses as a certified Chiropractic Wellness practitioner (CCWP) in Massachusetts and New York State. He is also a certified injury prevention specialist, certified chiropractic sports physician, certified in disability evaluation and rating of physical impairment. He earned his BS from Rutgers University and his MA from Seton Hall University.
Sweetwood’s auditorium, with full audio/visual capabilities, serves as an ideal location for lectures, musical performances and other presentations. The lecture series is just one of many public events to be held at Sweetwood, which includes a dining room and lounge for special events, multi-space for activities such as a yoga and dance classes, and a bluestone terrace offering breathtaking views of Mt. Greylock and surrounding hills.
