Your Brain, Your Habits... Your Way

Creating and sticking with new habits doesn’t have to be difficult. Through the science of behavior design, we meet you where you are today and match you with the most desirable and effective habits. Learn what behaviors you are most motivated by to create a daily routine that promotes peak brain performance.


Creating and sticking with new habits doesn’t have to be difficult. The ability to build new neural connections and rewire existing ones is known as neuroplasticity. Increasing your brain’s plasticity is possible at any stage and age. The brain is malleable, like a muscle, and able to continuously grow cells and make brand-new connections.

“Goals are harmful unless they guide you to make specific behaviors easier to do. Don’t focus your motivation on doing Behavior X. Instead, focus on making Behavior X easier to do.” – BJ Fogg, Tiny Habits

Turns out…
You CAN teach an old dog new tricks.

What does your FUTURE look like?

We lead with science

At the LifeWorks Brain Performance Program®, we create a map of your brain activity using the latest in neuroscience technology and cognitive testing.

Brain mapping is non-invasive and involves 19-channel EEG recordings. This provides a snapshot of your brain to show how it’s working.

Brain function depends on the health of your body and mind. LifeWorks Brain Performance helps you optimize brain health by addressing the key factors that impact brain regulation.

Cognitive testing reveals strengths and weaknesses in reasoning, visual, verbal and memory processing, and executive function.

Your brain map compares your brain waves to a normative data base. Statistical analysis helps to show what’s properly working and what’s not.

Your personalized report provides resources and recommendations that will help you achieve a brain healthy lifestyle.

What is brain training?

At LifeWorks Brain Performance you will experience cognitive training techniques including biofeedback and neurofeedback. Through brain mapping and cognitive testing, we observe how your brain is working now. From this, we create an individualized training protocol to train your brain. With training, your brain will get stronger, become more flexible, and create more insight, attention and awareness.

For example, the goal of brain training is to balance brain waives. When the brain does something good, the brain automatically rewards itself. This positive reward is remembered just as a dog would remember he gets a treat if he sits and stays. With real-time positive reinforcements your brain says, “hey, I like that and want to do it again”.

All LifeWorks brain mapping and brain training is non-invasive. Our equipment simply reads and listens to your brain waves which supports your customized brain training.

BCIA Certification – Our LifeWorks Brain Performance team is certified by the BCIA (Biofeedback Certification International Alliance). The BCIA is recognized by the Association of Applied Psychotherapy and Biofeedback and the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research.

Science says…

• You are your brain. The personality you have is your brain. The decisions you make in life come from your brain. The emotions you feel and show come from your brain.

•At any age you can improve your brain’s performance, sharpness and resiliency. Proactive measures taken over time will help you prevent or delay cognitive decline and / or Alzheimer’s Disease.

• Spending time in nature improves cognitive performance and enhances creativity. It makes you feel better, too.

• The brain has an amazing ability to heal and regenerate. It has limitless potential to improve regardless of its current level of function.

• Meditation has been linked to increased gray matter in the brain, and has been shown to improve memory and lower stress.

• The brain is the organ that is most easily damaged as a result of poor diet . Eating healthy and nourishing foods help protect the brain.

What Guests are Saying

Lifeworks Brain Performance program was an incredible experience. I was trying to find a program that answered questions regarding some issues with my brain health and also acquiring a baseline for myself. Through the many great aspects of their program, especially the brain mapping, I found those answers and also some solutions to help fix them. Programs like stretching, yoga, breathing, brain training, nutrition and outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, and exploring all enriched our bodies and minds while fulfilling a genuine Montana experience. The culinary part of the trip was absolutely phenomenal every step of the way and you definitely won’t go hungry. I am thankful for finding a program and staff that actually wants to help us get better and can’t wait to see how LifeWorks improves, expands, and makes changes for the better for those that are willing to try.
