Brain Integration Therapy was recommended to me by my Bowen Therapist Colette Claude. My condition to be a B.I.T. candidate is “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.” I have been a “dominant right hemisphere adult” but as a child I beganlife very bilateral. I could read as a child and was at the top of my class until I went into an advanced experiment in “speed reading.” I never read a book again after this course (third grade), as I was frustrated because I could no longer understand or comprehend anything that I read, as this course taught us to skip words.
Although this may sound redundant for the diagnosis “P.T.S.D.,” the brain is sped up when one is traumatically dysfunctional. Before I started with Melissa, I could not put one foot on the ground in front of the other without feeling that there was no ground beneath me and I was very neurologically impaired. I was going to give up driving as my depth perception was progressively getting worse. Life was definitely not fun.
After completion of Brain Integration Therapy, I have found the significant changes listed below:
I look forward to sending an update, as it has only been 6 weeks since my Brain Integration Therapy Completion.
Thank you Melissa!

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 9 years ago. Not wanting to experience the side effects of traditional medication, I looked for alternative ways to help me with pain and swelling brought on by RA. Jasmine spoke to me about Brain Integration Therapy and as she educated me regarding this, I was on board. I received BIT before the beginning of winter, when joint pain and swelling is at its worst. Throughout the winter months I had no experiences with pain and swelling. I was able to get through the season pain free! Jasmine was also able to point out other areas of my body that I had challenges with, such as, stomach pain. I had never told her that this was an issue for me. Brain Integration Therapy was definitely a better alternative to Traditional Medicine. Not only is it intriguing, but it works!!!
Jasmine also provided BIT to two of my children. My 8 year old son was 3 ½ months premature and therefore has had many learning disabilities. After BIT my son’s speech improved and he was also able to express himself more than he had in the past. My son is also able to remember books he has read and explain them to me, something he struggled greatly with in the past.
My 10 year old son struggled with emotions and would internalize his emotions. With BIT, Jasmine was able to help my son express his emotions instead of internalizing them.
The BIT approach is very gentle. Jasmine was able to help me understand the process and was very patient with me. I would recommend BIT to anyone who is looking for a different approach when dealing with challenges with the human body.
My 10 yr. old son was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder (age 5) and Central Auditory Processing Disorder (age 8). Before Cole started BIT with Jasmine he was a very poor speller, had low reading comprehension, was unable to block external noise, had an inability to focus, and was unable to control his impulses. The result of these issues, were hours of homework that always led to meltdowns and tears. After the first session with Jasmine there was a difference in Cole. He was finishing seat work at school and scored a 100% on his Social Studies test that week. After the second session he scored a 95% on his spelling test! Cole told me he was able to understand what he was reading and ?the words seemed clearer? to him. The homework he was bringing home was finished in a fraction of the time it used to take. I am so thankful to have found Jasmine at Northern Arizona Brain Integration. I am telling everyone I know about BIT. The results are amazing!
As a long time sufferer of multiple food allergies, I was very excited to learn about Brain Integration Therapy – and after just one session, I was able to eat pizza (with multiple foods on the no-no list) without the typical pain. And after the second session, I was able to expand by culinary options considerably (dairy, eggs, soy, gluten, nuts, etc). It surprised me to find how much a simple thing like being able to order from a menu without fear of painful repercussions has increased my enjoyment of life. I highly recommend BIT to anyone who suffers from food allergies.
Brain Integration Technique has had such profound effect on my physical, psychological, and spiritual well being! Several years ago I was in a very serious car accident and was in a wheelchair for close to a year. Needless to say, I’ve had a great deal of residual pain because of it; especially back pain. Initially, I started out feeling a little skeptical about this technique (and I like to think of myself as a pretty open-minded individual I might add) due to the fact that it just didn’t seem like there is much to the procedure. However, that ambivalence quickly faded after noticing a significant improvement with my back pain -even after only being balanced two out of a total of three layers that I was told needed balancing. It completely took me by surprise about 3 days later when I realized I had gotten through an entire day without taking a single pain pill. I was amazed!
this experience, I decided to go ahead with a full integration. This is where the psychological and spiritual
healing came in. I
noticed after being balanced that events didn’t have the same emotional strong
hold on my life. Events that normally
were emotionally intense inward struggles just weren’t anymore. Life seemed to flow with more ease, and I
wasn’t always straining to make healthy decisions anymore; they just came.
Brain Integration has had a huge impact on my relationships and my overall ability to live a happier, healthier life. Brain Integration Technique has truly changed my life.
I have recently had
treatment from Melissa Fields for candida. I have
had the candida for a number of years and I finally feel it has left
my system. The brain integration treatment got to the core of it in a
way I had not previously been able to accomplish and I no longer
crave sugar!! This is a miracle!! I highly recommend this treatment
for those with unending candida issues.
KRI was afraid of EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME... I was raised in a very dysfunctional and abusive environment up until i was about 15yrs old. I was afraid of failure, success, disappointment to others and myself, public speaking, taking risks, confrontation, ....I had no confidence in myself and very low self esteem. It was hindering my growth in the workplace and affecting me at home as well. I had a terrible temper, which probably came from the violence I was witness to for so many years as a child... At times, I felt like Dr. David Banner trying not to "Hulk out". I would have panic attacks at night, I had soooo many thoughts swirling around in my head, I just couldn't sort through them. I was on prescription medication to help calm me down enough to go through each day. I had a severe problem with a disorder called "dermatillomania".... I picked at my fingers until they bled ever since I could remember. I did it when I was nervous, angry, scared... which was ALL the time.. I was a mess... After Jasmine integrated me for all of these "problems" I have since then expanded my career in my passion for art by voluntarily and spontaneously putting myself out there... I took my portfolio to a local tattoo shop and was hired! I've made tons of connections with other artists that I was always intimidated by. I'm confident, haven't needed to take my meds, haven't had a panic attack and overall, I have nearly "No Fear". I feel great! AND my fingers are healing. I've let go of my "daddy" issues and I feel "free".

I wanted to send a little note about how happy I am with
what Jasmine has done for my family. Jasmine was very caring, compassionate and
very professional while working with my two boys aged 7 & 9. My younger son
was consistently bringing home N- (meaning F in the traditional sense) on his
report card every quarter. After he was fully integrated the next two report
cards went from N- to O+ and he made student of the month!! My younger son was
also very reserved and shy and not very talkative. However, after integration
he has really come out of his shell and is a social butterfly and has been like
a sponge with learning new skills…socially, emotionally and academically. My
older son, also struggling in school, made the honor roll twice after being
fully integrated. He has also become more sensitive to the needs of those around
him. He has developed a new skills set as my younger son has with emotions,
academics and in the social setting. My older son was also able to read a full
300 page chapter book in a few days!! Prior to integration he was not able to
read a chapter book and his reading level was below what the school required…he
has also written his own books. I am so very happy with what Jasmine has done
and I truly believe that Brain Integration is vital for those who are looking
for a more holistic approach as well as what WILL WORK! Thank you Jasmine,
There are not enough words to describe my satisfaction with the results I have experienced with brain integration. Six years ago I had a hysterectomy. Since I was incredibly young, I was put on numerous medications as a hormone replacement regiment. A month after the surgery I began having issues sleeping. I could fall asleep, but nothing I did kept me asleep. For five years I woke up, on average, every 20-30 minutes! I was miserable. I tried natural remedies as well as heavy drugs to get me to sleep and nothing worked. I changed my schedule, adjusted my daily routine and still, every 20 minutes I was praying for sleep. When the doctor finally asked me if I was stressed, I looked at him dumb founded thinking “Well, yeah I am stressed! I can’t sleep!” Melissa knew how frustrated I was as the years went on. As she began her journey and learned about brain integration she was confident that she could help me. While skeptical at first, I knew I would try anything. After the first session of balancing my crazy hormones I experienced immediate results. I was able to sleep for 3-4 hours without waking up and I felt so much better. Knowing that this was working I saw Melissa again. I am now able to sleep without waking up for 6 hours! When I think about how much sleep I was losing before it is hard to believe I could even function during the day. I not only feel better and rested, I am happier. Thank you Melissa for making me feel like a normal 26 year old! I know that any woman going through hormonal changes and imbalances would benefit tremendously from brain integration!
The month of November is dedicated to sharing information about the Northern Arizona Brain Integration Center! We brought our son in with the hopes of building his confidence and gaining focus and retention. Our expectations were exceeded beyone all expectations! There were so many improvements including . . .
My son is doing really well in school. He hasn't been having any problems completing school work or homework and he has been following directions. He also seems to be having less emotional outbursts. Thank you so much! I will definitely recommend brain integration to other parents I know that have children with ADHD. I'm so happy that he can be off the medication and still function well in school and at home.
J.M. - parent of child diagnosed with ADHD
daughter is 12 the youngest member of the family. She deals with
divorce, a father with bipolar disorder, coupled with siblings who have
moved away to attend college. All of my children have always done well
in school. The 12 year old has often been challenged with the amount of
time it took her to complete assignments. She also left a small school
to attend a much larger public school for the Middle School years. With
the new school many social issues arose.
I heard interesting things about Melissa Fields and her work in Brain Integration. My daughter was evaluated by Melissa and found that she is slightly dyslexic. My daughter who I thought I had an open conversation relationship with said, when asked by Melissa "How many times do you have to read a book to remember what your read?" My daughter replied 3-5 times! No wonder it took her so long to complete assignments. Her grades and scores in school and on Standardized Test never indicated this problem.
Melissa met with my daughter and dealt with a combination of her issues and needs. Melissa's genuine character and training brought confidence to my 12 year old.
We saw growth immediately. Within a month my daughter was completing her assignments during school. Her homework was a breeze. For the first time ever she is an avid reader.
Melissa and my daughter worked on social and emotional issues as well. There is measurable improvement in many areas. I am so grateful to Melissa. In her graceful way she shared, educated and applied Brain Integration to my daughter and it is a better tween life.

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis over 10 years ago. A number of times each year the inflammation has returned, sometimes very severe and lasting months. I have tried every medication available, but none have been able to stop my symptoms from returning. The only other option that doctors have is surgery.
just a few Brain Integration Therapy sessions with Jasmine, I am
drastically better, and able to taper to a very low amount of the
medication that I was taking. Following my first treatment, I noticed
right away that my mind and body were calm, and my symptoms improved
immediately. Jasmine has helped me to realize the negative habits that I
have in everyday life, and working to change those has been very
beneficial to me, as well. She is not just treating my symptoms, she is
treating the causes.
We went to C’s last parent/teacher conference for elementary school. Hard to believe. He
is doing wonderful. He and the resource teacher agreed, last semester,
that he would only see her for half an hour on Fridays to work just on
organizational skills.C had straight A’s this semester,
including a 95% in Spelling. He still maintains the highest grade in
Math in his class. Last semester he had all A’s and one B in Science.It’s
amazing the changes that have occurred in C over the last year,
least of which are his grades. He is so much more confident in every
area of his life.
