Microcurrent Neurofeedback

Just as your body benefits from a tune up, so can your mind.

At ND Life Spa, we specialize in Microcurrent Neurofeedback or “MCN”, an advanced treatment designed to help the brain ‘reboot’ itself.

MCN is extremely effective and used to treat mind-related issues, such as Anxiety, Depression, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, TBI, Substance Abuse and many more conditions. MCN treats the source of the problem, not the symptoms.

It’s an entirely safe, painless, non-invasive treatment, and effective for both children, and adults.

In a relaxing MCN session, small electrodes are applied to a patient’s head to reflect brain waves and encourage a ‘re-routing’ of established brain wave patterns. This enables the brain to adjust itself by creating new brain wave patterns. Typical responses within the first few treatments are mental clarity, a sense of calmness, clearer senses, and more restorative sleep. Over 85% of patients observe a noticeable positive change in fewer than three sessions. The MCN requires no conscious effort and changes are generally enduring and sustainable.

Dr. Kirk Blackwood and our staff at NDLS are certified trained practitioners in MCN, and we can customize a treatment program to meet your individual needs. The number of sessions depends on the individual and the acuity of the condition, and will be determined by our practitioner.

Nearly 60% of thyroid sufferers are unaware that they have a problem. To account for this, ND Life Spa utilizes state-of-the-art technology (including computerized testing and infrared thermography) which detects even subtle thyroid imbalance. Thanks to functional testing we’ve helped many patients with a thyroid disorder. If you struggle with thyroid symptoms and want to promote healthy solutions, come see us at ND Life Spa and we will help support you in your wellness journey.



Diabetes is a growing epidemic in the US. According to the American Diabetes Association, every 21 seconds another person is diagnosed with this disease. That is primarily self-induced by lifestyle choices and misinformation. To make matters worse, traditional medicine seeks to merely “manage” this disease, rather than treating the internal and external causes, which is our primary focus at ND Life Spa.

When you consider the many health issues that often accompany diabetes like poor circulation, ulcers, obesity, neuropathy, (to name a few) diabetes can be debilitating. The holistic approach applied by the staff at ND Life Spa supports you in managing with the underlying causes, which ultimately created a body of poor health that was susceptible enough to succumb to this opportunistic adversary. Our natural treatments can help promote a healthy life and support you with a plan to reduce the symptoms of diabetes. If you’re diabetic and your goal is to add quality time back to your life, schedule an assessment with our staff at ND Life Spa. We will work together to get you where you want to be.

auto immune

Auto Immune

When someone develops autoimmunity, it is because the immune system has become “confused.” Normally the job of your immune system is to know when a foreign invader (like a virus or other pathogen) is present and it is supposed to attack the foreign invader and kill it. But in the case of autoimmunity, the immune system does not recognize the difference between your own body and something it is supposed to kill, so it attacks itself.

The goal at ND Life Spa is to decrease inflammation in the body, balance the immune system, and manage symptoms through a prescribed health plan with recommendations around diet, exercise, sleep, and more. You will receive support from a health coach to help you implement every step of the plan.

digestive health

Gut Health

“Gut health” describes the function and balance of bacteria of the many parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Ideally, organs such as the esophagus, stomach and intestines all work together to allow us to eat and digest food without discomfort. But that is not true for about 70 million people in the US with digestive issues.

Why should we pay attention to our gut health?
All food is ultimately broken down in the gut to a simple form that can enter the bloodstream and be delivered as nutrients throughout our bodies. This is only possible with a healthy digestive system. A healthy gut contains healthy bacteria and immune cells that ward off infectious agents like bacteria, viruses and fungi. A healthy gut also communicates with the brain through nerves and hormones, which helps maintain general health and well-being.

What are the signs of gut health problems?
Everyone at some point experiences digestive problems such as abdominal pain, bloating, loose stools, constipation, heartburn, nausea or vomiting. When symptoms persist, it may be a sign of an underlying problem that needs medical attention. Weight loss without a good reason, blood in the stool, black stool (a sign of bleeding in the gut), severe vomiting, fever, severe stomachaches, trouble swallowing food, pain in the throat or chest when food is swallowed, or jaundice could potentially indicate an underlying gastrointestinal problem with serious consequences.

Hormone Balancing

Women: Our program is a proven, all natural and safe solution for balancing the endocrine (hormone) system. Whether you’re dealing with a thyroid problem, infertility, hot-flashes or other hormonal symptoms, the staff at ND Life Spa have safe and effective holistic treatment protocols to assist support your hormone concerns.

Men: Ageing as a male is the most natural and common cause of hormonal imbalances in men whereby testosterone levels decline and oestrogen levels progressively incline. This decline in testosterone can lead to symptoms such as a lack of energy and fatigue, mood changes, osteoporosis, hair loss and muscle weakness.

ND Life Spa has been helping patients promote healthy hormone balance since 2011. Before chemically manipulating your body with prescription hormone replacement, consider the holistic protocols that ND Life Spa offers to balance the body naturally. Studies show many traditional hormone treatments can cause serious side-effects, including breast and female cancers, stroke, and weight gain. Due to these risks, it’s always wise to apply the least invasive treatment first. ND Life Spa’s protocols are non-invasive, and they have been effective for many of our patients of all ages

Mental Health

One of the top ways to improve both your physical and mental health is by eating a healthy diet. This is because there is a gut-brain connection that links the state of your gut to the state of your mind. Prolonged or excessive stress can wreak havoc on your overall health because chronic stress, anxiety, PTSD, and various of other disorders can cause inflammation in the body as well as decrease your immunity. Therefore, mental health management is an important part of holistic gut health. To manage these conditions, consider a holistic approach to healing your body at ND Life Spa.

Weight Loss

1st place: Best Natural Weight Loss Clinic 2018, 2019 and 2020
Bismarck’s Best of the Best, The Bismarck Tribune

95% of Americans that lose a significant amount of weight gain it back! This is exactly why ND Life Spa does NOT do conventional weight loss (it just doesn’t work long-term). Instead, we specialize in healing and balancing the body inside and out, through nutrition, “whole-food” supplementation, detoxification, hormone balancing, lymphatic stimulation and more; all resulting in permanent, healthy weight loss.

If you’re sick and tired of the gain/loss cycle, and you’re seeking permanent weight loss through a total restoration of health, ND Life Spa is your answer.

What was life like before your program?
“Before my program, I ate with abandon. After work, I would go home and binge on anything – lots of carbs, starches, and sugar. I wasn’t even aware of how unhealthy this was.”

How has the program changed your life?
“At first, I wasn’t mentally prepared to break up with my food habits, and it wasn’t easy. After the first couple of weeks, I found that I had a ton of support from the clinic staff and from my friends, which reinforced my confidence and made everything easier. Now, I’ve lost 40 pounds! I feel great because I found out that I’m stronger than I thought I was, and I did things I never thought I could do. I feel good about myself again, and more than what I lost in weight, I gained in confidence.”

Emerald Laser

The Emerald Laser fat removal uses a unique green laser (10 of them to be exact) to cause the fat cells in the target area to release their fatty materials. Your body will eliminate this material through its natural detoxification process (your lymphatic system). It’s important to understand that the laser does not destroy your fat cells, it just helps to shrink them.

Why is this important? With most other treatments, like CoolSculpting® or liposuction, the fat cells are destroyed. Over time, this causes “potholes”, “pitting” and “rough” looking skin in the areas that were treated, especially if the fat cells in the area start to increase in size. With the Emerald laser, the fat cells are unharmed, so you’ll never have unwanted changes in the look and feel of your skin.
