Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES)
CES stimulates alpha waves, the brain’s building blocks of resiliency and capacity, and can be useful for sleep, anxiety, and improved cognitive functioning in populations recovering from addiction. This technology supplies a very small modulated electrical current to the earlobes while patients engage in Audio/Visual Stimulation (AVS). The unit and entrainment device combine light and sound to induce positive responses to stress reduction, insomnia, mood disorders, mental sharpness, memory, and cognitive functioning.
Heart-Rate Variability (HRV)
Our HRV devices track the interval time between each heartbeat as one breathes in and out in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Equipped with a monitor, this biofeedback device shows patients engaging visuals to help teach relaxation techniques and develop coherent breathing patterns. HRV is effective in reducing stress, gaining clarity, and developing greater self-awareness of internal reactions within one’s body.
Hemoencephalography (HEG) Biofeedback
HEG biofeedback trains patients to consciously control and increase blood flow to the brain. This approach is helpful in alleviating psychological symptoms caused by lack of blood flow to the brain, such as brain fog, decreased relaxation, or difficulty concentrating.
The Chi Machine is used in our Brain Center to help facilitate oxygen flow to the brain, increase blood circulation, and boost immune function. The device is used in a passive exercise technique, where an individual lays flat on the floor and rests their ankles on the machine’s foot rests. Once the machine is turned on it provides a figure-8, goldfish-like movement to the feet and legs. Studies show that the Chi Machine’s relaxing-yet-oscillating movement helps facilitate oxygenation to the brain, increased blood flow and circulation, as well as strengthened immune function and lymph flow, cleansing and removing harmful substances from the body. Other positive responses to the Chi Machine include reducing insomnia, excessive dreaming, digestive problems, stomach pain, anxiety, constipation, palpitations, extensive forms of aches and pains, and mental stress in some patients.
