Demo day was a great opportunity to try out what Pura Vida has to offer. Four of our practitioners taught classes and in addition there were free 20-minute sessions for people to try out cranio-sacral therapy, kinesiology, energy medicine, acupuncture and our infrared sauna. Pura Vida was happy to have the chance to reach some new people and also for the chance to serve the community with some education and free sessions.
Jordan’s talk was an intro to neurofeedback which she was recently trained to bring into her practice. This is a non-invasive easy “training mechanism” for our brain that helps our nervous system rebalance and stay that way. It can treat a multiude of symptoms and conditions that impact our quality of life, from more serious trauma and inability to sleep to more relatively “harmless” qualities such as ability to organize tasks, anxiety about public speaking, or ability to focus. Through simple activities like playing a video game or watching a movie, a computer program is used to give positive feedback when our brain is emitting the wavelengths we want that make us clear headed, calm, and focused, (optimal brain function) and give inhibit wavelengths that make us anxious, unfocused, or low energy, therefore training our brain to operate on the wavelengths that serve us to be the highly functioning people we want to and can be. Jordan and Pura Vida are excited to be offering this new technique!
