OTHER BRAIN CENTER THERAPIES
Through the use of electrical sensors that receive information about your body, biofeedback helps patients learn to control bodily processes that are normally involuntary, including muscle tension, heart rate, and blood pressure. By learning how to relax certain muscles and calm the mind, the result is an ability to practice new, more positive coping mechanisms during stressful situations, which is particularly helpful to those in treatment and recovery.
Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) employs a small modulated electrical current applied to sensors attached to the earlobes. It promotes sleep, relief from anxiety, and improved cognitive function for those who’ve struggled with substance abuse and mental health disorders.
Heart-Rate Variability (HRV) is a biofeedback device that helps patients learn how to relax and recognize their unique breathing patterns, synchronizing respiratory functions and heart rate for the better management of stress and anxiety.
Providing a better mind-body connection and overall wellness, the Chi Machine oscillates the patient’s ankles in a figure eight pattern, helping with improved circulation, immune system function, and heart and lymph flow. By addressing these key centers of the body, it frees up the brain to function in a healthier way overall.
The Brain Center is available to all The Meadows Malibu patients who are encouraged to use it regularly during their stay as part of their overall treatment program.
