Brain Photobiomodulation

Brain Photobiomodulation in Mechanicsburg, PA to Help You Activate Your Best Self

Brain photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy uses red and near-infrared light to penetrate through the skull and into the brain cells.

Our highly versatile (PBM) system has adjustable pulse frequencies, phase coherence, and brain network stimulation. Our technology, created by 7 Phd’s and 2 MD’s provides augmentation of cognitive brain functions with transcranial infrared light. Brain (BPM) is an up and coming field in neuroscience and brain stimulation. At the Burick Center, our number one goal is to provide you the latest most efficacious modalities on the market to help you activate your best self.

Our unique hybrid near Infrared red and infrared red light therapy targets the body and head with 10hz or 40hz frequency with micro-chip boost technology. Our versatile and custom-fitted applicator devices target specific areas of your body and head.

Targeting the brain: Using our comfortably fitted nasal applicator, this neuro alpha/gamma (PBM) treatment focuses on helping focus, mental acuity, and general stimulation and wellness.

One Session – $40.00
Three Sessions – $100.00
We recommend three 20 min sessions to receive maximum benefit. Individuals must be 18 or older to receive any impactful therapies.

Let’s Start the Conversation

Please call the Burick Center at 717-730-9000 to schedule or for any questions, ask for our Wellness Coordinator, Christy Jensik, RN.

Technology and Science Matters

The applicator is a powerful brain photobiomodulation (PBM) device. It delivers 810 nm near infrared light (NIR) via four transcranial LED modules and a nasal applicator. The transcranial LED modules of the headset are directed to target the hubs of the default mode network (DMN) of the brain.

The nasal applicator is designed to deliver 810 nm NIR through the nasal channel to the ventral areas of the brain. The NIR LED diodes of Neuro Alpha to have a pulse rate of 10 Hz, which correlates with alpha oscillations within the brain. This frequency, calming and therapeutic, is also associated with improved recovery and is desirable for a resting brain state.

The Neuro Gamma NIR LEDs pulse at 40 Hz. This pulse rate correlates with the Gamma brain wave state associated with the state of heightened awareness and mental focus.

the Neuro device is custom-fitted for comfort and ease by a skilled and trained member of our staff.  The Neuro is also an ideal technology device to aid in meditation, biohacking, focus, mindfulness practice, mental acuity, and general brain wellness.

“The energy-based path to higher consciousness and wellness.”

Experience the Burick Center Difference

The Burick Center offers a patented intranasal technology that directly targets and focuses on various regions in the brain. It’s patented intranasal technology is designed to maximize efficiency and performance. Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy decreases brain fog, increases mental clarity, energy and can also help provide clearer and sharper thinking. PBM can be used to increase cerebral blood flow, which provides greater oxygen availability and oxygen consumption in the brain.

In addition to the direct neurological and cognitive benefits, Red light therapy stimulates cellular function, healing and repair, which is backed by literature and research that supports using this technology for the following benefits.

  • For healthy and natural ways to enhance their cognition including name recall and brain fog.
  • To improve mental acuity and general wellness
  • Vegas nerve activation, which helps improve inflammation
  • Gut health (can alter the gut microbiome in a potentially beneficial way)
