Leading Canadian Trauma and PTSD Treatment Program, Sunshine Coast Announces Innovative Meditation Methodology Using MUSE Headbands
Sunshine Coast Health Centre is one of Canada's leading programs for trauma and PTSD therapy. The Centre is announcing an innovative meditation program using MUSE brain-sensing headbands.
Vancouver, BC, January 31, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top programs in British Columbia, Canada, for trauma and PTSD therapy, is proud to announce an innovative meditation program using MUSE brain-sensing headbands. The Centre uses a non-12 step methodology to treat trauma (including PTSD) as well as drug and alcohol addictions, and so the MUSE brain-sensing headbands are a natural fit into the larger treatment strategy.
“Our trauma and PTSD therapy programs are serving clients from not only British Columbia cities such as Vancouver or Victoria but also from nearby provinces such as Alberta (for example, Edmonton or Calgary) as well as far away as Toronto,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We have purchased a large quantity of MUSE brain-sensing headbands for our clients, who can rent them out as part of their therapy if desired.”
USING BRAIN-SENSING HEADBANDS AND MEDITATION IN TRAUMA AND PTSD THERAPY
SCHC offers a unique methodology to work with clients on trauma and PTSD. Here is background to the use of MUSE brain-sensing headbands. The MUSE is a meditation tool that offers real time feedback on brain activity. In a normal 10 minute meditation session the client might find him or herself in a “calm, meditative” state 5-7 times, but MUSE can promote up to 50+ times in that 10 minute meditation to try and quiet thoughts and focus on breathing. It does this by using different noises. For example, it might be a beach with lapping waves and birds when the client is in a calm, meditative state and then loud crashing waves when the brain is active. SCHC has many clients who struggle with sleep, relaxation, and anxiety. This meditation tool is giving them feedback on whether or not they are calm enough or breathing deeply enough; helping them achieve these states through quieting of the mind and deep relaxation.

The trauma program is available to all clients who are struggling with interpersonal and/or work-related stress and focuses on (1) how clients can self-regulate to deal with dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger, and other symptoms of trauma, and (2) how clients can pursue a fulfilling life, in spite of suffering. It should be also noted that SCHC also publishes one of the leading online resources for drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in Canada at http://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/. In any case, any person who may be suffering from trauma or PTSD is urged to reach out for a private, confidential consultation on treatment options.
