A healthy life starts with a healthy brain. This organ, which serves as the command center for the entire body, influences every aspect of your well-being. Unfortunately, it can also be influenced by stresses that affect its efficiency at controlling the countless activities that keep you feeling and functioning well. The good news is that your brain responds just as readily to corrective stimuli. That's what BrainTap Technology is all about -- and that's why we offer it to our patients here at Sarasota Wellness Center.
To understand the tremendous value of BrainTap Technology, it is first necessary to understand the brain's remarkable capacity for neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the brain's inherent ability to alter its functions as directed by outside influences, circumstances or needs. It's the critical factor in the growth and development process that begins at birth and continues throughout your life. In this chaotic, fast-paced modern age, however, not all influences are supportive ones. Mental and emotional stresses can elevate levels of cortisol and other "fight or flight" hormones, tensing the body while pushing the brain into a state of exhausting hyper-vigilance. The resulting imbalances between the two sides of the brain, and the constant "running dialogue" inside your head can promote insomnia, fatigue, mental sluggishness, unhealthy habits (such as overeating), and general inefficiency in all your physical systems.
BrainTap Technology is a safe, painless, non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive means of reversing the effects of all that stress. This technique utilizes a headset that includes both headphones for ears and a special visor that covers the eyes. As you relax comfortably, the visor sends light pulses to your eyes while the headphones fill your ears with soothing music backed by binaural beats. The rhythms of light and sound pulses are designed to slow brain activity, allowing for deep relaxation and profound stress relief. The relaxed brain can then regain its normal balance and instruct the rest of the body to calm down as well.
BrainTap Technology is generally accompanied by guided imagery and visualization to combine the release of pleasurable neurotransmitters (as opposed to stress-boosting ones) with positive reinforcement of healthy changes and goals. This makes it an invaluable aid to our holistic wellness programs here at Back to Health Wellness Center. Our Sarasota chiropractor, Dr. Robert Kuskin, can use it to enhance chiropractic care in combating chronic or acute pain, rehabilitating injuries, and helping you establish a new, healthy lifestyle for yourself -- from losing weight or achieving some other specific goal to increasing your confidence and self-esteem. Less stress can mean better sleep, a healthier heart, more efficient metabolism, looser muscles, lower blood pressure, a more alert mind -- a remarkable list of benefits for improving and maintaining your quality of life.
As you can see, BrainTap Technology can serve as a powerful health and wellness complement to our other conservative healing modalities here at Back to Health Wellness Center -- but is it right for you? There's only one way to know for sure, so call our clinic at 941-351-2555 to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor in Sarasota FL!
