I would like to invite Dr. Swingle's staff to list the places that show Dr. Swingle and his methods to be scientifically proven to be effective. None of the articles written by him are published. Thank you.

My significant other had a traumatic brain injury, after a MVA, where her chev Silverado was thrown forty feet and turned 180 degrees. Her head took out the window. She saw dr. Swingle, and was treated by Michael Mariano to manage her tech appointments. She had thirty treatments, and because we travelled for this care it was over 11 thousand dollars out of pocket. ICBC, does not pay for this treatment. The neurologists seem frightened by it. Non-medical management. The lawyers also try to discredit Dr. Swingle. but.. what price is your health. I got my wife back. She was literally stunned, and for the better part of a year was non-functioning. Thank-you...Dr. Swingle. It would be nice to have the case references where you appeared in court. I am sure you did as an expert witness, but apparently they can't find you. in any event. You would take your significant other on a vacation for this money. So, go next year. Get healthy!

Dr. Swingle and, particularly, Michael Mariano, one of his team, have been invaluable to us and our son. He was diagnosed with ASD when he was 9 and we found Dr. Swingle when our son was 10. It was like our son was gradually awakening to the subtleties of life around him. We live about two hours drive away, so we didn't go every week, but I would say that we noticed a difference within weeks and a complete change in his abilities in school within months i.e. attention, handwriting, motivation, etc. Since the treatments are non invasive and don't involve medication, and the my son didn't mind going at all, why not give the clinic a try? You can really only gain in brain function and that's hard to put a price on. Our son is 18 now and learning to drive, graduating from high school in a regular distance ed program and probably couldn't get an ASD diagnosis today from an expert.

the site claims to provide two different treatments yet they refuse to answer my simple question regarding the differences. seems very shady.

It seems to be one of those modalities that work for some but not for others. I went there to deal with anxiety issues. Reception staff was hit and miss for friendliness and efficiency. Multiple billing errors. The psychologist I saw used a lot of EMDR (waving hands in front of eyes while you recall memories) again, very hit and miss. Much of the follow up research on this mode of therapy (EMDR) has not been overly promising. There are common brain EEG patterns for depression anxiety OCD etc and they try to repattern using computer software playing audio through headphones. Software at Swingle Clinic is VERY old and computers look like they were made in 1995. Went to Valentus Clinic in Victoria and had much better result - better receptionists, up to date psychologist and new computers and software. If I had a choice I would go with the newer technology, no question. Valentus is not available in Vancouver as yet as far as I know. I know that the Swingle office did little for me...

I'm surprised to read the comments that the treatments and assessment are not scientifically proven. To understand what is done during the therapy one has to be highly educated and intelligent person. If you don't understand it or even if it didn't help you in particular do not underestimate professionalism of the clinic. Dr. Swingle and his methods are accepted in academic society and it is based on scientific research. As for my own experience we had great help with our son who had been diagnosed with ADHD. The assessment was beyond any expectations, 100% accuracy. Therapy results were surprising even more - we, our friends, our son himself and teachers started to see a big difference after 3(!) treatments. Yes,it might be considered not cheap, but it worth every spent dollar. About reassessment in 5-6 weeks as someone wrote earlier - it does make sense that it requires some time to train the brain and I'm not aware of many nonmed treatments that can be done faster.

Treatment has been very helpful for my daughter who was diagnosed ADHD and struggled with anxiety. 4 years ago her teacher didn't want her in the classroom anymore unless she was medicated. After initial 10 treatments with Swingle, the teacher said "your daughter is a different person, whatever you are doing it's working, keep it up" I didn't need her confirmation, we already knew. We have gone back once a year for 4-5 sessions to help when anxiety creeps up and it is always a huge help. My guess is that it works for some people and not others, the same way various anti depressants do and do not work for different people. Given the option of Ritalin, it was worth it to try Dr. Swingle first. His staff are very knowledgeable and have goen above and beyond money grabbing treatment for our family.

I personally found my sessions with Dr. Swingle to be very effective and, as a health care practitioner myself, I am confident in the scientific soundness of his approach. I am a happier and more productive person as a result. My daughter, who had sensory integration dysfunction, has also benefited greatly from seeing him. Dr. Swingle was Head of Neuropsychology and Neurophysiology at McLean Hospital in Boston for many years and he knows his stuff.
