For professional therapists using PHOTOSONIX devices
PHOTOSONIX devices have been used by therapists since 1991.
We always have and still do support research and professional collaboration.
AVS “Audio Visual Stimulation” can be useful for a variety of conditions.
In this section we would like to promote therapists in the field working with PHOTOSONIX Devices.
If you are such a therapist please fill out the form below and we will gladly post your information.
As stress has become prevalent in our society and its toll growing we are at a crossroad. The hope is to constantly be searching and discovering new ways to address it.
Please join us in this effort.
We thank you for your support of AVS and sharing your expertise and experience.
Together, perhaps, we can build a brighter future for those who are having difficult time controlling stress, anxiety and the many other problems that can be assisted by AVS.
All of us at PHOTOSONIX.

Research Paper: http://www.mindstim-devices.com/images/docs/article%20jnt.pdf
I have been using utilizing and researching Auditory and Visual Stimulation (AVS) as a non-drug symptom intervention along with multi-modal interventions in children and adults diagnosed with learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), PTSD, anxiety, depression, and a number of neurological disorders for over 20 years.
I am dedicated to continually explore the use of AVS as a physical phenomenon that normalizes brainwave activity and increase neuronal activation resulting in dendritic growth. Some of my findings have resulted in the decreased severity in compromised cognitive abilities and executive functioning, such as short-term memory, sequencing, information processing, and focus and attending.
I believe that AVS can increase the potential for individuals to obtain higher levels of education and academic successes, as well as aid in reducing the risk of behavioral and psychological issues which can accompany some of these diagnoses. Such interventions can enhance social and academic successes, which will result in higher levels of self-esteem and self-concept and positively impact the quality of relationships with others.
With further studies in the use of such simple technology, we will all gain new non-drug approaches to interventions that result in increased awareness, as well as academic, social, and personal successes and the expansion of the overall quality of life.
