Heal the Brain with a Game?

neurosage cards

Playing video games has become a very popular form of entertainment. Research recognizes many positive effects gaming has on different areas of the brain. It has been shown to activate areas in the brain that deal with memory, visual imagery, and cognitive control.

Neurosage is a noninvasive computer software application that is designed to improve balance and coordination. Light and sound stimulate the brain and has been used for years for their therapeutic benefits. Different frequencies of light and sound produce different effects. For example, alpha range visual and auditory stimulation reduces the perception of pain. Other frequencies induce a parasympathetic or relaxed state. This process is named Systemic Neural Adaptation, which involves the intentional change of the body’s system over time.

What is Neurosage Therapy?

Neurosage is a scientifically designed Therapy that targets the visual and vestibular system to improve coordination, muscle function and balance. It’s a noninvasive method enabling the brain and body to work in harmony.

examples of neurosage therapy

Benefits of Neurosage:

  • Balance & Coordination

  • Flexibility & Range of motion

  • Cognition & Memory/Focus

  • Muscle Strength & Endurance

  • Pain & Discomfort relief

  • Improved Reaction Times

  • Faster Recovery

Balance & Coordination

By utilizing specific games and videos, we have seen incredible improvements in assisting in balance & coordination, as well as speed and agility.

Muscle Weakness

Optimal muscle functions are what keep us alive and in motion. Due to repetitive stress and physical trauma we can damage or reduce muscle strength. Specific visual and auditory stimulation along with prescribed physical exercises during treatment have shown significant improvements in patient muscle strength and function.


Cognition is the medical term for thinking, and problems with thought and memory are known as cognitive problems. Interactive video games with specific eye movements have been shown very effective in improving cognitive function, from improvements in orientation to attention, and even concentration.

Reaction Times & Sports Performance

Neurosage therapy can help you excel in physical abilities and performance by improving muscle strength, speed, agility, hand-eye coordination, and balance to name a few.

Rehab (Physical and Occupational)

Certain programs are designed to help reduce pain, improve balance and coordination, increase muscle strength and even range of motion, getting you feeling better faster.

2) How long are therapy sessions?

For new users, Neurosage requires an Initial Exam to understand your health history, clinical examination findings and to determine your goals. Your first visit will approximately take an hour; we’ll use this time to determine which program works best for your specific needs.

Regular Therapy sessions are typically 15 to 30 minutes.

3) Who can use Neurosage Therapy?

This therapy can be used for both children and adults.

4) What can I expect during my session?

The Vibe Plate:

The benefits and advantages of vibration therapy combined with Neurosage Therapy are tremendous. Vibration therapy and exercise on the VibePlate vibration machine is a powerful part of Neurosage therapy programs. Vibration Therapy can help with activating muscles, reducing pain and discomfort, helping with balance and coordination, as well as increasing blood flow. Dr. Starkman will guide you through motion-guided exercises based on your recommended program.

The Visuals & Music :

Neurosage uses a combination of very specific acoustic stimulation, eye movements, and colors to help improve brain function such as balance, coordination, and cognition. Through carefully selected visual programs and auditory stimulation along with prescribed therapy and exercises, you can increase recovery times and treat symptoms like acute and chronic pain and improve balance and coordination.

The Games:

Neurosage games are all low-impact games primarily focused on generating upward head and eye focus with patterned eye movements.

essential oils

The Essential Oils:

A wildly underrated member of the five senses, your sense of smell has a powerful effect on your brain’s many functions. Any odor you breathe in affects your limbic system, which governs emotional processing, motivation, fear, and pleasure, including your hippocampus and amygdala, all three of which impact learning and memory. Essential oils have been shown to increase your alertness, memory, accuracy, and mental clarity.


Peppermint – Right Brian Stimulation

Peppermint is most commonly known as a breath-freshening agent or a tasty additive to holiday candies, but did you know that it also possesses considerable medicinal properties? Most significantly, peppermint can have notable effects on the human brain by enhancing cognitive functions.

Recent research has found that simply the aroma of peppermint essential oil could improve memory, reasoning, concept formation, attention span, and problem-solving if inhaled through the nose. Inhaling the scent of peppermint is a non-pharmacological way to enhance human cognitive performance


Lavender – Left Brain

Lavender is prized for its calming and relaxing properties. This oil can help put your nervous system in a parasympathetic rest-and-digest state, versus the fight-or-flight one that many of us often resort to during stressful times.

There have also been studies that elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) can be helped to improve their cognitive state via exercise and using lavender.

The benefits of this essential oil include, but aren’t limited to alleviating stress and anxiety, improving cognitive function and memory and improving sleep quality, and eliminating pain or tension.

The Glasses:

Red or Blue, which one are you?

Color-tinted glasses are exactly what they sound like: glasses with tinted lenses that only allow specific wavelengths of visible light through. They may look similar to trendy glasses, but they are not. Whereas most glasses have a very narrow application for specific symptoms, patients may experience at least temporary relief from a variety of symptoms by finding the tint that best suits their current brain function.

While the relationship between light and brain function is complicated, and scientists haven’t mapped it out fully. But what’s clear is that different colors of light can affect hormone production, brain area activation, and other aspects of brain function in a variety of ways.

blue glasses

Right Brian Stimulation

Blue light is shown in some research to increase alertness and cognition, as well as increase patients’ brain oxygenation.

red light glasses

Left Brain Stimulation

Red light may alter the function of the autonomic nervous system, promoting relaxation.
