Therapy Programs

The tried-and-true method: 12 Weeks

For the vast majority of clients our 12-week therapy program is the best course of treatment. It consists of 3 therapy sessions each week, for 10 continuous weeks. Then the last 2 weeks (to make a total of 12) are scheduled 4 weeks and then another 6 weeks after the end of the 10 week block. These last 2 weeks function as follow-up sessions to help solidify therapy results.

This program is designed to focus mainly on the neuromodulation or brainwave repatterning effects of microcurrent therapy (2 HEADBAND sessions each week). These sessions help repair, rebuild, and reinforce neural connections and train the brain to use all the frequencies with ease. Perhaps most importantly, these sessions help the brain practice moving in and out of these different frequencies – as opposed to staying “stuck” in one frequency the majority of the time.

The third session of each week is called a SYSTEMIC and can look many different ways. However each of those protocols are aimed at improving sensory processing, enhancing gut health, reducing inflammation and full-body detoxification.

There are 12 weeks in this program due to the many neuroplasticity studies that show when training the brain new patterns, results become permanent after 8-12 weeks of intervention.  

MORE ABOUT SYSTEMIC SESSIONS

This image shows a client receiving one of the various systemic therapy protocols. This particular protocol is referred to as a Bilateral Spinal.

Two probes are connected by lead wires to the microcurrent device. These probes are moved up and down the length of the spine at small intervals. Again, the tiny frequencies are being delivered to the body with very little physical sensation. 

Other systemic protocols will utilize probes with flat disc shaped tips, larger plates, and/or flexible electrode pads. Each systemic will have a slightly different focus, such as improving sensory processing, enhancing gut health, reducing inflammation and/or full-body detoxification.

12-week Program Cost

The fair market value for each one of these 30 min therapy sessions is $125. So the total cost is $4,500 for all 12 weeks, or $1500 each month. 

As a nonprofit we still want to make this program available to those who cannot afford to contribute the full cost of their child’s therapy. The first option is to sign up for automatic weekly/monthly contributions through our website, where you can spread the full cost out over a longer period of time, say 6 – 12 months. (i.e. $375 – $750 each month)

If that is still too much of a financial burden, the next option is to fill out an financial application, including providing tax returns, in order to have a lower payment amount awarded to you, based on your family’s financial needs. The amount discounted will be dependent upon your financial situation.

our next 12-week program will be starting SPRING 2023!

We start a limited number of patients at the beginning of each 12-week session. Your child’s therapy appointments will be private, though having everyone on the same time-table makes it easier for our provider to supervise the various procedures and modifications throughout the duration of the program.

Call or email to find out if this therapy will be a good fit for your child, and to reserve the session time that will work best for your schedule BEFORE our May cohort fills up!

Sample Schedule:

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays  3:30pm – 4:00pm

Intensive Therapy Program

Families that live outside of San Diego often use summer and holiday breaks as an opportunity travel here and enroll their child in the Intensive Therapy Program.

This program essentially delivers a full week’s worth of microcurrent therapy each day, for 5 days. This requires an hour session (a double HEADBAND session) in the morning and then returning to the office in the late afternoon for a SYSTEMIC session.  Which means in just 5 days your child could receive 5 weeks worth of therapy sessions.

*Usually this program is best suited for pre-teens, teens, and young adult clients. Additionally, results will vary much more than with the 12-week program.

Weekly Intensives are usually scheduled during summer months and/or in-between our 12-week cohorts.  Please call us to inquire further!

Intensive Program Cost

The rate for intensive programs is still $125 for each 30 min session. Since you are doing 3, 30-min sessions each day (2 in the morning, one in the afternoon) your child will receive 15 total sessions within the week. Making the total cost $1875.

Just like our 12-week program, we have payment/contribution options to fit your family’s budget. However the base rate for the intensive program is set at $1000 for the week.

Follow-up Therapy Sessions

Many parents often bring our clients back in for 3 or 6 follow-up therapy sessions, every 6-12 months. These sessions help remind and reinforce those neuromodulation effects that took place over the course of their 12-week therapy program. Additionally, follow-up can help clear out any toxins that may be lingering a bit too long in other areas/systems of the body.

Follow-up Therapy Costs

Follow-up therapy sessions are charged at the full-cost of $125 each session. This is to ensure that other families have more opportunities to obtain this therapy for their child for the first time.

Concussion Therapy Sessions

More and more data continues to pour in about the danger of concussions and subconcussive injuries. And the potential for long-term effects exponentially increases with each new head trauma! Click here for a list of scholarly articles discussing these very serious side-effects such as difficulty concentrating and attending, working-memory impairment, and mood or personality changes.

Microcurrent Therapy offers a one-of-a-kind solution for reducing the recovery time often associated with concussions. Microcurrent’s tiny electric frequencies will reduce inflammation and help stabilize connectivity throughout the brain. Our concussion therapy sessions are 45-60 minutes in length, are are recommended multiple days a week. However, depending on severity, you could be fully recovered in just 2 sessions!

Stop waiting for it to just get better on it’s own, call today to set up an appointment!
