BioReboot for Brain Optimization
Our fight-or-flight responses were not designed to withstand the never-ending cycle of stress in modern life. A BioReboot can help your nervous system stay calm and your brain stay sharp.
Optimize brain performance in one efficient treatment.1
Dual Sympathetic Block
Reset your Sympathetic Nervous System
IV Ketamine Therapy
Improve Neural Communication
Rediscover your edge at work,
reclaim your calm at home.
Dual Sympathetic Block
A minimally-invasive anesthetic that resets the sympathetic nervous system back to baseline levels.
Using advanced ultrasound imaging, a board-certified physician administers a local anesthetic into nerve bundles in the neck that are linked to the brain’s Amygdala, which regulates the fight-or-flight response.
The block gives a heightened sympathetic nervous system time to rest and reset at pre-stress or pre-trauma levels.
IV Ketamine Therapy
A dissociative anesthetic that can rapidly relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Chronic stress and depression have been shown to alter the neurotransmitter glutamate, making it more difficult for neurons to communicate. Ketamine triggers the production of Glutamate and the protein BDNF to stimulate neuroplasticity in the brain and improve neural communication. 5,6 By inducing neuroplasticity, ketamine infusions can also help people break free from depressive and anxious thought patterns.
What to Expect During Your BioReboot
Experience rapid improvements in your day-to-day performance and general well-being.
A 2023 clinical study led by Dr. Sean Mulvaney found that 75.5% of patients with severe anxiety demonstrated clinically meaningful improvement 1 month after their Stellate Ganglion Block treatment. 7
The Generalized Anxiety Disorder questionnaire (GAD-7) was used to assess changes in baseline anxiety among all of the patients included in the study. The treatment resulted in a decrease of GAD-7 scores of over twice the minimal clinically important difference in treating anxiety for at least 1 month following SGB.
Other side effects may include hoarseness and difficulty swallowing. These usually resolve within hours as well. Our team uses two different imaging techniques to ensure accurate placement.
