Not Exactly Brain Surgery, Is It? 


“There is no pain and the procedure is non-invasive, but by God the experience feels so real that it might as well be. It is over in five minutes and by the end I’m as relaxed as if I’ve been for a deep massage.”  Shelley Snyder, No Proscenium Read the full article.

Patient Testimonials

Fares
★★★★★ A creative & well-designed experience. Audiovisual stimulation is a big part of the allure but the interaction with Dr Leon is amazingly compelling. The experience not only lifts the thin vale between reality and illusion, but it also blows up older illusions by way of acting. Immersive theater at its best in a digestible short form dose right in the middle of London. Highly recommend.

First time at immersive theatre, and it was so unique and fun! Would definitely recommend to anyone willing to try something new. Like meditation but very whacky and weird.

I don't write many reviews but I just had to this time. Wow! what an utter gem I stumbled across here. This is something very different and unique for sure. Everyone in London and visiting should book an appointment with Dr Leon; it's an experience unlike any other you'll find on Airbnb!!! When I arrived to her location it felt like a film set, a really mad building!! I didn't know what to expect but any aprehension I had was soon dissipated by the good Doctor herself!!! serious, check this out while you can!!

This is probably the coolest thing I've done in London for a while. Such a painless and amazing experience. I can't urge everyone enough to give it a go. I wish we had more of these things back home!!

This was my second XNN experience so I had high expectations. I am delighted to say that they were more than met. Dr Leon's neural enhancement is a truly immersive exploration of the potential capacity for human achievement. The institute's techniques and equipment gave me an experience I will keep with me for years and a new resolve for positive personal change. I will be looking out for the next XNN experience, eager for more.
