Pain management and stress relief go hand-in-hand. The Acuscope is sometimes used briefly at the beginning, and most often for a longer duration at the end of a treatment session, for a period of rejuvenating relaxation. The gentle transcranial influence of using the Ear Clips or Headband synchronizes brainwaves to a steady Alpha frequency pattern (8 or 10 Hz). Patients often fall asleep or simply become very calm and at ease, experiencing deep relaxation. Over a series of treatments, the nervous system can be reconditioned to sustain this regenerative state of mind and body, making it valuable for sports performance, post-traumatic stress, injury repair and post-operative recovery.
