If you and/or your children are active in sports, you know that Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) symptoms may linger for weeks, even months. Conventional medicine has little to offer those suffering from fatigue, memory issues, poor concentration, headaches, lack of coordination, dizziness and other persistent PCS symptoms. The body does have an innate ability to repair, but the healing process may seem to be stalled or take a very long time. If this is the second or third concussion, healing can take even longer.

The consequences of a prolonged recovery are significant. Students may fall behind at school. Adults may not be able to drive or work for a lengthy period. Sufferers of PCS are told to wait, and that healing takes time. But there is an alternative approach that will accelerate the healing!

Five Weeks to a Healthy Brain

Two complementary health care practitioners have partnered to offer an effective, non-invasive, drug-free Concussion Program. For five consecutive weeks, PCS clients will receive a 30 minute neurofeedback session from Christine Peacock and a 60 minute Bowen Therapy session from Madeline McBride.

Bowen Therapy (Bowenwork®) triggers the body’s self-healing mechanisms. The therapy, practiced by more than 26,000 practitioners worldwide, restores functionality to victims of stroke, traumatic brain injuries and concussion. Madeline McBride, M.A.Sc., is a certified Bowenwork® practitioner.

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, computer based technology that trains the brain to “reset” to optimal function, improving memory and concentration, reducing headaches and sensitivity to noise, and the anxiety that sometimes results from a trauma to the brain. Christine Peacock, B.A., Psych, MHA, holds Advanced Certification as a NeurOptimal® practitioner.

Winter is here, and unfortunately some hockey players, skiers and snowboarders will suffer concussions. Madeline and Christine have sons who play (or played) soccer and hockey. They are extremely aware of the seriousness of PCS and of the limited options concerned parents have. That’s why they’ve partnered for this five week program to get people with PCS back to school and work faster.
