The user should engage in legal consultation prior to the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa if the user is engaged in any legal proceedings or has the potential to engage in legal proceedings in the future.

  2. Tactile bilateral stimulation may (but is not guaranteed) increase the vividness of memory  recall, including imagery, emotions, and body sensations related to the memory or experience. This may (but is not guaranteed) to be the case of both positive and negative experiences. In addition, bilateral stimulation may (but is not guaranteed) to enhance recall of memories and in some instances may (but is not guaranteed) enhance memory recall of events or details of events that the user may have forgotten or not may not have fully processed when the original event of the memory was experienced. 
  3. This means that the user may (but is not guaranteed) experience stronger recall of both positive and negative memories and experiences following the use of BrainSculpt products, including stronger or more vivid imagery, emotions, and body sensations related to events, memories, or experiences. 
  4. This also means that the user may (but is not guaranteed) experience recall of both positive and negative memories in the form of imagery, emotions, or body sensations that that before the use of BrainSculpt products, the user may have either forgotten, not been aware of, or were less intense in nature. 
  5. As such, when using BrainSculpt MindSpa, both positive and negative imagery, emotions, and body sensations may (but is not guaranteed) be intensified.

  7. In addition, tactile bilateral stimulation has been found to decrease the vividness of certain types of  memories, including the intensity and vividness of images, emotions, and body sensations. As such, the intensity of  images, emotions, and body sensations related to specific memories or experiences may become less intense following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa and the user may actually forget or be unable to recall details associated with specific memories or experiences following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa. In addition, following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa, details of the memory or event may feel foggy, distance, or unclear. 
  8. Memories of events that occurred during or near the time in which the user had either a concussion or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may not be able to be processed using BrainSculpt MindSpa due to the way which the TBI or concussion influenced the memory storage of that event. BrainSculpt MindSpa should not be used to process memories that occurred near or at the time in which the user had a concussion. 
  9. Self-Help shall not be held liable for any negative experiences, distress, or changes in the accuracy or intensity of memories that occur following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa. 
  10. BrainSculpt MindSpa should NOT be used if the user is dealing with any legal situations, including but not limited to having to witness a specific event. This is due to the possible changes in the nature of the memories that can occur following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa, including the fact that negative memories may become foggy, blurry, or difficult/impossible to retrieve. In addition, changes to the intensity of emotions, body sensations, and images can also occur following the use of BrainSculpt MindSpa.
