    Hey Y’all! Just wanted to add Mindstate Wellness Center in Tysons, VA (northern VA/DMV area). They approach wellness from a scientific angle.

    They have comprehensive packages so my son and I have been doing personal training and brain training there for a few weeks now! My son does one for fitness (get ready for soccer season) and the brain training for mental performance/stamina. I do the personal training to stay in shape and now that I’m getting older, my brain aint working like it used to y’all! The brain training helps with memory and my insomnia. It’s pretty easy, you just sit and control movies with your brain. Highly recommend!
