At Just Believe Recovery, our client care philosophy is to offer the most advanced, comprehensive treatment from a holistic perspective. In our continual effort to meet that goal, we are proud to announce that we now offer the Biosound Healing System.
What is Bio Bed Therapy?
Bio beds are based on a technology that helps clients undergoing recovery to be more comfortable, relaxed, restful, and free from pain.
Bio beds use the healing properties of amethyst crystals and magnets to treat pain and stressful conditions such as anxiety, depression, inflammation, insomnia, and fatigue.
Biosound Healing System
The Biosound Healing System uses Heart-Rate Variability Biofeedback (HRVB), which included auditory and visual presentations that include multiple interventions, such as binaural beats, sound frequency massage, music therapy, and guided imagery.
During the treatment process, binaural beats induce a meditative state, low vibrations trigger a relaxation response, heart beat patterns synchronize with the body, and positive affirmations are used to promote mindfulness.
Patients learn how to slow their heart beat and breathing using a measurement referred to as heart-rate variability (HRV) that identifies the time between heart beats. Use of controlled HRV has shown to reduce psychological conditions such as depression and anxiety.
In fact, it is thought that deep breathing can affect areas in the brain associated with emotional regulation and mood, and also alleviates unpleasant psychological symptoms. Indeed, evidence-based research suggests that HRVB can effectively treat anxiety and depression, PTSD, insomnia, fibromyalgia and other types of chronic pain, gastric disorders, asthma, and COPD.
Also, research has found that when used in conjunction with cognitive-behavioral therapy and other therapeutic interventions, HRVB improves recovery outcomes.
HRVB For Drug And Alcohol Dependency
Just one Bio bed session has been shown to decrease cravings for substances, as well as increase decision-making skills and impulse control. Evidence supports the use of HRVB for both instantaneous results and also a long-term reduction in anxiety.
A lower HRV (reduced time between heart beats) has been associated with cravings for alcohol in patients receiving substance abuse treatment and has been linked to increased cravings, an impaired ability to resist cravings, and poor impulse control and decision-making.
Conversely, evidence has also should a link between a higher HRV and improved cognitive and executive functioning (i.e. planning, goal-setting, etc.) One HRVB session has been found to mitigate stress response and foster relaxed alertness when patients were asked to complete difficult objectives.
