About Us


Since our founding in 2002, our mission and our first priority is caring about the needs of our customers. We credit our longevity on this philosophy, and the fact that we are delivering quality products that are helping to improve the quality of life of tens of thousands. Being among the pioneers and leaders in our field, we operate under the guiding principals of Servant Leadership, based on the work of Robert K. Greenleaf.

The Servant-leader is servant first…  It begins with the natural feeling one wants to serve, to serve first. The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served.  

Experience makes the difference!

For over 27 years, I have been dedicating myself to neurotechnology providing education and developing tools to help people improve health, well-being and to live better quality lives.

I bring over 43 years of corporate retail management, marketing, consumer electronics and product development experience to MindSpa. I established A/V Stim in 2002 with the release of our first MindSpa version. Since then we’ve worked continually to make the best products possible.

I have been fortunate to work with and learn from many of the brightest, most experienced experts in the fields of sleep science, phototherapy, psychology, neuroscience and manufacturing.

This is a recent video interview I gave at the GoBeyond Summit on Sleep speaking on MindSpa and the history and positive benefits of the technology.


Commitment to our Customers

During my years in retail, we were trained where the customer really does come first. One of the major ways AV Stim differentiates ourselves is that we will always provide among the best customer service experience. As you can see from our customer testimonials, we live up to this promise. We appreciate our customers and know that people, like you, are the very reason our company exists.

I want you to have confidence knowing that we care about you and your long-term success with our products. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to me and I promise to personally respond to your correspondence.

Commitment to Community Involvement

I am a local community leader speaking at public meetings and appearing frequently in local publications. I served a record six terms as president of the 100+ year old Tamalpais Conservation Club. I am now serving my fourth term on the board of the venerable Marin Conservation League.

As a strong believer in the value of community service both as an individual and as a good corporate citizen, we regularly devote time giving back to our community through non-profit activities. 

Our commitment to non-profit work for the past 25-plus years is a reflection of personal character, which carries over to the character and integrity of our company and our products in our goal to make a positive difference in people’s lives and the world. 

Sincerely yours,

Larry Minikes, President
