The most important discovery since the beginning of modern brain science has been that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to its physical, mental, and emotional experiences. This phenomenon is known as neuroplasticity.
It was long believed that our brain was fixed and un-regenerative, meaning it was unable to recover abilities that had been lost due to damage or disease. Modern science has proven that the brain’s capacities are dynamic and its incredible sophistication make what was once thought to be impossible, possible-recovery and healing.
At Thrive Neuro Health, we utilize natural, non-invasive methods of sensory stimulation such as light, sound, touch, smell, taste, and movement to activate the brain’s own natural, transformative capabilities. We are able to do so without surgery or medication and the unpleasant side effects that accompany them.
1. FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGYBuilding a Better You
The human brain is the most complex and awe-inspiring organ in the known universe. It is divided into two halves- the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere- and has a brainstem. You can think of it as an organization made up of two major companies- Company Left Brain and Company Right Brain.
The organization and it's companies are first developed structurally from the ground up. Then they are managed functionally from the top down. This is analogous to the structure and function of each human being. Your subconscious, primitive/lizard brain (brainstem) is developed first (the bottom) and your conscious, and big brain (cortex) is developed second (the top). This is known as "bottom/up development".
Once the organization and companies are "built" then the goal for the first three decades of life is to train, equip, resource, integrate, and further develop the skills and functions of each "team member"(body parts/organs) that exists within your body. This is known as "top/down management".
The ultimate goal is to foster and promote efficient and optimal function for life.
The right hemisphere (Company Right Brain) is much more present then the left, as it is connected to the human family and streams all of our sensory systems into a collage of the here and now. Conversely, the left hemisphere (Company Left Brain) works linearly and methodically and is all about the past and the future. The left is designed to take the right hemisphere's collage of the present moment and pick out, categorize, and organize its details.
The right hemisphere is much more positive and self-fulfilled, while the left hemisphere helps us to be pragmatic, practical and self-directed. Utilizing both hemispheres for ""whole brain living"" allows us to create meaningful relationships and outcomes in our personal and professional lives.

At Thrive Neuro Health we utilize natural, non-invasive methods of sensory stimulation such as light, sound, touch, smell, taste, and, most importantly, movement, to activate the brain's own natural and inborn transformative capabilities. We are able to do so without surgery or medication and the unpleasant side effects or risks that accompany them.
2. CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGYFostering the Brain-Body Connection
The field of Chiropractic has traditionally been considered a useful resource for body pain. However, contemporary research has suggested that the effects of a chiropractic adjustment and other manual therapies are also able to provide meaningful change to our central nervous system, including our brain.
In other words, this research has shown that chiropractic adjustments are able to change our brain function and communication. The foundational concept of Chiropractic Neurology rests on our understanding that the clinical application of a chiropractic adjustment may impact the nervous system and help improve a patient’s life and well-being.
