Contraindications - Bay Area Brain Spa

Contraindications

Neuofeedback considerations

None. Safe for all brains and all ages.  If you are taking medications, you should consult with your doctor as you accumulate sessions with brain training as we’ve seen clients need to adjust dosing as they progress with training.

See note on healing reactions.

About Healing Response and Detoxification

A healing response is a temporary reaction your body undergoes when it reacts to treatment positively.

With neurofeedback, when someone has been dysregulated for a long time, or has stored trauma, they can feel uncomfortable as the nervous system calms and regulates.  It can feel “off” or uncomfortable.  Sometime clients feel emotional as they process stored trauma and grief.  This is very natural and part of any healing response. Continue the brain training and you’ll move through it.

With all the detoxification treatments, as toxins leave the body, your muscles relax and stretch, and your body realigns. This is a sign of healing and detoxification which will eventually subside as you continue to heal.

Acupressure, heat, and far-infrared rays penetrate into your muscles and open up the small blood vessels in your body, improving circulation and promoting healing. This also helps to encourage the release of toxic material and waste within your body. A healing response usually occurs within one to five days after the initial treatment, although it is different for everyone.

Common healing responses include a headache, dizziness when you first sit up after treatment, nausea, digestive clearing, tiredness, aches and pains, tingling of the hands and feet, acne, frequent urination, or flu-like symptoms.

You should continue treatments as you experience a healing response. Just remember to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated to help flush the toxins out.
