Megawatt Brain Programs offer a brain-centric approach to optimal performance
Dr. Laura Gravelle and Ashley Thomas are the co-creators and partners behind the Megawatt Brain. This program incorporates new cutting edge treatment methods aimed at stimulating underactive areas of the brain, and offers new hope for patients with brain based health challenges.
Challenges, that before have left people to their own devices blindly searching for solutions.
“We come from a place of care, compassion and understanding when addressing our clients from the first initial assessments through each and every visit thereafter “ Says Ashley Thomas, Partner and Client Care Director.
“This is a project that is near and dear to my heart as I have seen first hand the devastating effects that concussions can have; on not only the individual but, the entire family and by the time they come into our office they have looked and searched for answers with no solutions” Dr. Laura Gravelle.
Megawatt Brain runs a program called BOP (Brain Optimization Program). The treatments involved are all designed to create hemispheric brain synchronization and incorporates the use of different stimulation to help reactivate and strengthen the once injured or under used area of the brain.
This is achieved by combining a series of different treatment modalities including but not limited to – realigning the communication network between the brain and the central nervous system, electrical nerve stimulation, breathing therapy, nutritional strategies through brain fuel, aroma therapy, movement retraining, vision stimulation, balance activities. Dr. Laura and Ashley utilize many of the same methods that were used to get Sid Crosby back playing in the NHL, after suffering multiple concussions.
Megawatt Brain is based on the principles of neuroplasticity, which is the amazing ability of your brain to “rewire” itself to work more efficiently. It was once thought that once you reached adulthood the brain could not change. Research over the past decade has proven that this is simply not true. One of the most exciting fields of neuroscience is how the brain can reform new pathways.
This means if you have been plagued from traumas which can include but aren’t limited to addiction of drugs and/or alcohol, repetitive concussions, PTSD or other emotional related trauma and even the effects of technological trauma you are not without hope! – There is a solution for you and it’s the Megawatt Brain Programs.
The basic premise of BOP is to support and increase the potential ability for healthy plasticity (rewiring) of the nervous system. Together we establish a new set point and then allow daily decisions and habit to reflect this new baseline. Neurological rehabilitation needs to be multifactorial and this program offers that. Together we build better brains.
If you or a loved one are suffering from a brain based health challenge such as PTSD, Post-concussion syndrome, Vertigo and Balance issues, Sensory processing issues, Learning and Behavioural issues, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Stroke, Insomnia, Lupus, MS, Acid reflux, IBS, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Depression, Anxiety, Addiction or Chronic pain? Have you been to countless health care professionals with little or no relief?
“For several months, I had neck pain, difficulty with my balance, headaches and couldn’t tolerate loud noise and bright lights, caused by a concussion from a severe blow to the head playing lacrosse. I was getting little help until a friend told me to look into this type of program. This program found the weakened area in my brain that was causing the problem and began strengthening it with various methods, including giving me advice on my diet that ensured I was eating foods to adequately fuel my brain. After the first few treatments my concussion symptoms of neck pain and headaches were drastically reduced and my balance had improved. Now I can enjoy my music again and tolerate bright lights better as well. As a result, I am once again able to perform daily tasks pain free, exercise and most importantly take care of my family.”
“I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and have had difficulty with my balance, stiffness and low energy. Since starting this program my balance is better and I get out more to walk my dog and am much more active. I have very little stiffness as well. Dr. Gravelle puts you through the paces and helps your brain function better.”
“When I started they began a comprehensive assessment and prepared an individualized treatment plan tailored to my specific needs. Using CNS functional neurology, which is the cutting edge approach to health care, they combined the best practices and an innovative approach to helping me deal with stress. This included vibration and tone therapies, nutritional intervention, postural positioning and balance assessment, breathing therapy and much more. Each visit I had one on one attention and they were at least a half an hour with me each visit. The results were palpable: relief from severe sciatic pain as well as increased energy, vitality and noticeable stress reduction. I highly recommend this program to anyone struggling like I was!”
