“As an attention trainer the ROSHI offers a powerful tool. My meditation students…consistently report that their meditation unfolds more quickly and more deeply. Student reports indicate that placement meditation is typically more stable and more easily sustained. It is also reported that ‘recitation’; ‘generation, and visualization’ practices are more stable and ‘feel more complete’.”
“In my many years as a Neurofeedback practitioner I have found the ROSHI glasses to be an invaluable tool to help my patients ﬁnd their own way to relief and recovery.”
—Dr. Victoria Ibric
“ I have used the ROSHI Neurofeedback for myself and my patients now for over 10 years and it consistently makes incredible changes with good clinical outcomes. I can’t say enough about it and how it has helped so many people including myself.”
—Dr. Donald Baune
“Sometimes I tell neurofeedback colleagues about the kind of results we get with the ROSHI, and they’re very impressed. Two of them have gone out and purchased their own ROSHI systems after these conversations. Mary Lee and I are grateful to be able to use what we believe is the state-of-the-art neurofeedback system – the ROSHI.”
—Erik Olesen, MS, MFT
“I have used the ROSHI and the pROSHI as part of my practice from the time they were first available. That was many years ago. Perhaps as early as 1996 we purchased and have used the ROSHI I with excellent and sometimes extraordinary results. Especially with closed head injury. The ROSHI I and II have been very helpful in reducing anxiety, insomnia and ADD/ADHD where excessive high beta is a dominate factor in exacerbating those conditions. We have also had considerable success reducing the anxiety that accompanies the Autistic/Aspergers spectrum disorder.
The built in Penniston Protocol has been extremely effective in the reduction of ‘craving’ that is the basis for addictive behavior. The ability of the ROSHI 1 to reward the generation of particular bandwidths, Alpha, Theta, SMR thru the stimulation from the glasses is particularly helpful where cognitive impairment accompanies the initial condition.
We have seen great improvement in many medical conditions, connected with closed head injuries. Depression, Anxiety, Substance Abuse and improvement in cognitive functions such as, short term and midterm memory and anger management have been brought nearer to the normal range of operation using the PROSHI (s) along with other modalities in some instances.
I feel that I have had the great privilege of helping people with the ROSHI who may have had little hope before they came to our clinic. As one of the modalities we have to help better people’s lives, the ROSHI is one of the technologies which we are fortunate enough to have.
Another very important benefit is meeting Chuck Davis, the inventor of the ROSHI, for that gift we feel very grateful.”

“Being a Biofeedback clinician with over 20 year of experience – I know how important one’s ‘tools’ are. I was fortunate to have been introduced to the ROSHI products by Dr. Victoria Ibric in the 1990’s. Easily – the pROSHI is one of my favorite tools used in assisting my clients in reaching their goals. Words like ‘clarity’, ‘insight’, and ‘relief’ are commonly expressed during and after a pROSHI session.”
—Steven Krentzman, BCB, Senior Fellow, C. Ht.
“The ROSHI is one of the most gentle and safest neuro-feedback activators I have encountered. The majority of my clients begin to notice improvements after 2-8 sessions.”
—Dan Staso, PhD
“I’ve used the pROSHI for several years on many different
varieties of difficulties: depression, anxiety, panic attacks,
schizophrenia, bipolar, strokes, headaches, pain, ADD/ADHD.. WOW! I am more impressed with each client’s results. They love it!! Whether using the pROSHI with children, adults or elders, it brings really nice results.” —Dr Marie Green (DSW/LCSW/BCD)
“Throughout the 21/2 years of using ROSHI and coming in and doing multiple sessions, the maximum amount of days I could go without pain of any kind was 3ó- 4 days then the cycle or whatever would start again. In early February of 2005, I was privileged to purchase pROSHI for use at home. Today I am on day 15 of zero pain. Fingers are kept crossed. Mental attitude is good, diet satisfactory. Being pain free for these last several days has been an unbelievable “best vacation” type feeling I could have ever imagined. From the point of purchase, I was using pROSHI 3-4 times a week, sometimes wearing the glasses to bed. Now I use it just once a week or so. I will continue to use it as a tune-up every week to maintain. Many millions of thanks to you all.”
“Chuck’s pROSHI saved my life from uncontrolled seizures. I had already had one Status Epilepticus and survived and was having up to 9 seizures a day when Chuck finally talked me into using his system.”
“My experience with pROSHI in detail: I had plenty of different treatments for my seizure condition after the status epilepticus. None worked. I was no less desperate than 5 years after the status when I used Chuck’s pROSHI, and reluctantly I might add, but something happened immediately upon using the device. My hands stopped to tremor while on the pROSHI. This intrigued me, because the doctors had used everything but L-Dopa to get my tremors under control and that was only because I refused their offer to take it. They had a tendency to get very intense. Now, by the time I had used the pROSHI, I had seen a lot of physicians, trusted in them to help me, and nothing helped alleviate the seizures. When I started to use the pROSHI I was having somewhere around 5-6 seizures a day. I had been as high as 9 to 12. Partial complex seizures, with a tendency to generalize, following a status are notorious to treat. Many people die from these types of seizures. I had been told this by many different doctors when their efforts failed to alleviate my seizures entirely. They had offered me surgery to alleviate them and they were worried I would have another status. I refused the surgery. They had all offered me these new and novel medications and I had seen two epileptologists. If I was going to respond to a placebo I would have done so earlier. This was a seizure disorder that had existed following my military service and an auto accident when I was in my 20′s. I had been taking seizure medicine effectively for over 25 years and it was under control until I got an infection and was hospitalized. Some medication lowered my seizure threshold and I had a status. I could hardly walk or talk for 9 months after. It was a life changing experience. It was, in a way a good experience, because it changed my life spiritually, but I was left with uncontrollable seizures. If anyone is wondering, they were not peudoseizures, because I completed a week long titration test and they were able to induce seizure with cortical EEG evidence of seizure. By the time I used the pROSHI the seizures were coming multiple times a day. The physicians had some success, because I was able to walk with a walker and talk again. Plus, the intensity of the seizures was reduced. I was also no longer having generalized seizures. But following the use of the pROSHI, which I was frightened to use and resisted using it for some time, Chuck sent the device home with me and I used it regularly. My seizures immediately began to improve to the point that I rarely have any seizures at all at this time. But, the pROSHI is prophylactic in its effect. If I stop using it after a while I start to have partial seizures. This is what makes me believe it is not at all a placebo effect. In addition to the effect it has had on my seizures it helps my wife’s stress and depression and my pain is masked incredibly well when I use it. If I am having a bad pain day I put it on and I get relief. The pain comes back after I take it off, but it is less intense. It has helped me cope with stress and depression as well. But, if I don’t use it I get no relief. I have recommended it to other people who live with seizure disorder and chronic disease and they have had similar experiences. Dr. Victoria Ibric works with a patient population that includes seizure patients and they respond as I did. This cannot be placebo, and I had not responded to placebo before. The fact that it is prophylactic also leads me to believe it is not placebo. If I don’t use it, it does not work. This is not a typical placebo effect. Placebos usually, wane in their effect with chronic disease patients. This has not failed to work over many years now.”
