“A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard.” Eliphas Levi

BrainWare SAFARI is a great tool to use in conjunction with other techniques and interventions and can be easily incorporated into a variety of clinic- or center-based programs.  Clients/patients can experience faster growth and stronger results from other programs when they use BrainWare SAFARI along with them.  How you decide to use BrainWare SAFARI will depend on the nature of your practice and can be different for different clients. 

Helping Your Client Get the Most out of BrainWare SAFARI

Getting results like those in our studies requires regular use of BrainWare SAFARI  over a period of weeks.  In general, we recommend that you use the program:

  • 3 to 5 times per week
  • 30 to 60 minutes per session
  • For approximately 12 weeks

Most users will not complete all 168 levels in that amount of time.  However, it is the frequency and intensity of use that strengthens mental processes.  Some users may want to take a break after 10-12 weeks of intense use.  Many may want to continue (“I want to beat this game!”) but at a less intense pace.
