Description

COVID Brain… the unfortunate follow-up for many COVID-19 survivors.

Unfortunately, many who have contracted and recovered from COVID-19 are displaying lingering neurological complications, including confusion, headaches, changes in behavior, and even stroke.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to high levels of psychological distress in the general public. Presenting as anxiety, depression, even aggression, this level of stress has caused alterations in the immune system and the brain.

Betsy Shandalov is an Occupational Therapist, certified yoga therapist, Reiki practitioner, and Ayurvedic wellness coach who brings decades of experience using integrative medicine to heal trauma for staff and patients to the forefront to provide tools you can use immediately with your patients.

In this session, Ms. Shandalov will explain how integrative medicine treatments like Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, and breathwork can not only encourage brain neuroplasticity for the general population, but also for clients who have recovered from COVID-19 infection. Ms. Shandalov will explain the latest research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its effect on the brain, and how to integrate these age-old traditions into your patients’ treatments.
