    This woman’s narrative about the use of PSiO during her chemotherapy treatments illustrates its
    therapeutic benefits as well as its usefulness in reducing side effects.

    WHAT IS THE PSIO?

    So-named by its Belgian creators, the PSiO is a high-tech pair of glasses: the lenses display
    various patterns of colors synchronized with music. The effect can be calming or stimulating,
    depending upon your needs.
    Several voice-guided programs use auto-suggestion techniques to assist you in achieving a state
    of well-being.

    BENEFITS

    -assists in accessing a state of ‘letting go’
    – improves quality of sleep
    -helps in the management of seasonal depression and related fatigue

    THE PSIO EXPERIENCE

    Following a brief orientation, a member of our team will invite you to recline in a comfortable
    lounge chair. With glasses over your eyes, headphones over your ears and enveloped in a soft
    blanket, it is time to let yourself be guided by the magical colors. Stimulated by the rhythmic
    pulsation of the lights, your brain will create a virtual kaleidoscope of colorful geometric shapes.
    This is paired with music, specially selected to assist the program’s goal. The experience is
    completely mesmerizing.

    The PSiO diverts your attention
    The PSiO achieves its benefits by redirecting your attention. The device’s sounds and colors
    stimulate the auditory and visual centers thereby diverting attention away from the brain’s
    constant chatter and focusing instead on audio-visual perception. In other words, by focusing on
    the colorful scenes of the PSiO, the incessant chatter inside your brain subsides.

    THE PSIO HELPS YOU TO ‘LET GO’ WITH THE USE OF PULSED LIGHT

    The creators of the PSiO didn’t leave anything to chance. The frequencies of light pulsation were
    specifically chosen for their effect on the brain. The result is achieving the much sought-after
    state of “letting go”, so difficult to achieve on our own.
    As mental rumination demands a great deal of energy, this “letting go” state is very recuperative.

    THE PSIO PROMOTES A STATE OF MIND PERMEABLE TO SUGGESTION

    As the mind ‘lets go’, a state of ‘subconscious listening’ is reached and the brain becomes more
    permeable to positive suggestion. Several programs have been created to harness this state.
    Stress reduction, sleep and self-confidence programs are offered in French at Ovarium. In
    English, we also offer programs related to discovering your hidden talents, stimulating the
    immune system and awakening your intuition.

    THE PSIO COMPENSATES FOR LACK-OF LIGHT EXPOSURE

    It is well-known that long- term lack of light exposure results in depression and its associated
    insomnia. Essentially, the amount of light exposure influences the production of serotonin (a
    mood-enhancing hormone) as well as melatonin (a sleep-regulating hormone). Thus, PSiO has
    developed programs that are specifically designed to counter these depressive and insomniac
    states. The PSiO combines the impact of light stimulation along with the powerful effects of the
    specially selected soundtracks.

    IN CONCLUSION…

    The combined effect of positive suggestion, luminotherapy and mental ‘letting go’ contribute to
    the improvement of cognitive function as well as mood. The PSiO can hence be considered an
    important ally in your overall well-being.
