What is the Flow treatment schedule?

Modified on Mon, 10 Jun at 6:54 PM

Flow utilises a clinically-proven treatment schedule that is safe and effective. The protocol is split into two phases: the Activation Phase and the Strengthening Phase. Each stimulation session is 30 minutes long.

The Activation Phase

  • Treatment schedule: 5x sessions a week for 3 weeks. Any missed sessions in the Activation Phase will rollover to following weeks, giving you a chance to make up the missed sessions.
  • Purpose: Activate neural networks in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is often underactive in people with depression
  • Response: Activating this area of the brain helps a person to better regulate emotions, sleep, hunger, and concentration.

The Strengthening Phase

  • Treatment schedule: 2x sessions a week, ongoing. Any missed sessions in the Strengthening Phase cannot be taken in following weeks.
  • Purpose: Preserve and strengthen progress achieved in the Activation phase
  • Response: The continued stimulation helps ensure the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex remains active, preventing future episodes of depressive symptoms.

Adjusting the treatment protocol for individual needs is possible with supervision of a clinician. Visit this FAQ for more details: How can I stimulate more often?
