Shiftwave is a breakthrough Nervous System Training Technology delivering mental and physical restoration and optimization at the touch of a button. Shiftwave applies pulsed pressure waves to the body, restoring users to optimal readiness, rebalancing the nervous systems, and reducing pain.
Based on billions of data points taken at the Shiftwave Institute, journeys use specific patterns and frequencies of pulsed pressure waves to guide both body and mind to optimal states. Journeys help improve fluid flow, autonomic tone, and neural activity. By synchronizing blood, lymph, and neural signals, the body's ability to heal itself emerges, resources are delivered where needed, and toxins and inflammation can be cleared.

We recently purchased a Shiftwave, and along with our Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, both are available to book.
Some clients have had the opportunity to experience this revolutionary biofeedback device with the direct support of their therapist, and we are ready to announce its availability for booking either with the support of your therapist, or on your own.
We are excited for you to experience it! We are always looking for modalities that support trauma being released from the body, and regaining its innate balance.
Please talk to your therapist about whether the Shiftwave could be a helpful addition to your healing journey.
Feedback from clients:
When you book your first Shiftwave session, Nancy, KCNPI's office manager, will guide you through the introductory process and your first journey, which takes about 15 minutes. Then you are welcome to use your remaining time to explore the available journeys in the Journey Guide which is located in the Shiftwave Room.
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. Infrared saunas allow you to eliminate toxins by heating the body from the inside out, infrared sauna detoxification not only eliminates chemicals and other toxins from the body but also helps ease soreness and allows the body fully relax.
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. With infrared therapy, the infrared wave penetrates 1.5” to 2” into the body stimulating a relaxation response allowing the muscles and tendons to unwind and release tension. The penetrating heat also raises the core body temperature which creates a “false fever” in the body forcing the immune system to spring into action and start making more white blood cells. The result is a reduction in swelling and inflammation, two major factors in easing chronic pain. In addition, as the infrared heat elevates your core body temperature, capillaries and arteries dilate to increase blood flow allowing more oxygen rich blood to travel to areas of tension and pain. Your muscles, joints, and soft tissue experience relief and healing.
The heat generated by an infrared sauna can cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.
Immune System Boost
Infrared Saunas can raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is our body’s natural way to strengthen and accelerate the immune response. This enhanced immune system and improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins, deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
