Brain mapping begins with an electroencephalogram (EEG), which measures electrical activity in your brain. Your EEG is recorded while you perform tasks on a computer. Doing so provides information that indicates how well your brain functions.
The EEG information facilitates the production of a map illustrating activity in each region of your brain. If you have ongoing symptoms after a concussion, brain mapping identifies areas of the brain that aren’t functioning sufficiently or efficiently; neurofeedback can then help restore normal levels of neurological activity.
Depending on your individual needs, neuroimaging may also be used to produce images of brain structures. That illustrates any changes following a concussion, which is then used to compose an individualized treatment program.
Neurofeedback uses a specialized computer program that reflects your brain activity through a video game. The game shows whether you need to increase or decrease electrical activity.
As you purposefully make your brain respond to stimuli, the modified brain waves manifest on the computer screen. As you continue training your brain using neurofeedback, you can rewire neural connections that were damaged due to a concussion.
Mindfulness meditation relieves the natural stress response that occurs following a concussion. It may also augment the brain’s neuroplasticity -- the ability to build new connections between brain cells -- which enhances healing following a brain injury. The capacity of mindfulness meditation to relax the body and distract the brain also assists in relieving residual pain from a concussion.
Mindfulness meditation is accomplished at Neurovella Brain Spa using:
Cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) headsets immerse you in a peaceful environment. Simultaneously, you follow a guided meditation that relieves stress and anxiety and enables a state of mindfulness.
After you recline in this contoured, zero gravity chair, peaceful music eases your mind while you receive acoustic vibrations at frequencies that alleviate tension throughout your body. The total experience produces deep relaxation, relieves stress, and promotes mental, emotional, and physical wellness.
Neurovella Brain Spa also offers:
Intravenous (IV) infusions contain optimal doses of vitamins and antioxidants known to alleviate specific health conditions. After a concussion, IV magnesium relieves and prevents headaches, while a range of nutrients promotes healing and brain health.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation uses painless magnetic fields to stimulate nerves in the brain. It’s a safe and effective option that may reduce post-concussive symptoms such as headaches.
