Additional Treatment Modalities
Our credentialed, trained and certified specialists work to restore and optimize visual function, sensory integration and wellness. In addition to our optometrists and occupational therapists, our staff includes whole-body therapeutic practitioners who direct patients in healthful complementary therapies that support healing including:
Integrated Listening Systems (ILS)
Based on the model of neuroplasticity, ILS is a multisensory intervention that integrates the visual, vestibular and auditory systems. Structurally, these three systems are wired together and fire together. In ILS, a patient receives changes in auditory input while doing visually directed tasks to help develop new neuro pathways. In addition, a bone conductor on the headset stimulates the vestibular (movement) and proprioceptive (where is my body space) systems. It can be customized to each patient’s specific challenges: focus/attention, coordination, auditory processing, organization, reading proficiency and communication.
Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT)
IMT corrects the structural integrity of the body using gentle non-invasive techniques. Our IMT practitioners use specific techniques to restore the vitality and function of the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous and other systems to support visual and sensory function during everyday activities.
Restorative Yoga / Yoga for Rehabilitation
Yoga for rehabilitation teaches calming strategies to help support the body when it gets overwhelmed by sensory input or sympathetic/parasympathetic imbalance. Yoga gives our patients the opportunity to practice presence, mindfulness and intention within each moment, while encouraging the body to return to its natural state in breath and alignment.
