- Revive will be closed until at least April 6th -
(Shown below: map displaying where Revive’s patients are from)
- WHY WE ARE CLOSING: During this difficult time period when the world is struggling to understand and contain the COVID-19, coronavirus, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking proactive steps as an organization to follow recommended guidelines and maintain the health and safety of our patients and employees.
Your health and safety is our first priority.
For these reasons, we have taken extreme measures and made the decision to temporarily close our doors until this pandemic has subsided.
Revive offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary services not available anywhere else in the world. The majority (90%) of our patients travel from outside of Colorado and many (32%) from outside of the United States. This map graphic shows the states and countries our patients have come from these past 3.5 years, so you can understand why we're taking such drastic measures to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Our patient population, particularly mTBI and Stroke, are considered to be at a higher risk of more severe complications from respiratory conditions.
- PATIENT BOOKING: Patients which were scheduled for treatment in March and April have been rescheduled starting in May throughout the rest of the year.
We have a particularly high call volume at this time. For future bookings please use the link to contact us, we will be getting back to you as quickly as possible. We are scheduling treatment with hopes to resume normal business hours in May.
Due to the uncertainty of the times, we will be closely monitoring the current events and making necessary updates as they arise. If the situation does not subside by May, we will have to re-evaluate at that time.
We will be fully enforcing flexibility in booking and granting full refunds of the required deposit should you need to change your scheduled appointment for any reason.
- WHAT YOU CAN DO: We realize these are added stressful times to what is already stressful having acquired a brain injury. Please take this opportunity to remain calm, centered, and connected to breath to keep stress levels at bay as we ride this situation out together. Be mindful of the negative thought loops of fear that will inevitably arise, and work toward maintaining a level of spaciousness and clarity to avoid being consumed by these fearful thoughts and emotions.
We highly recommend cultivating a daily breath/meditation practice of slow, deep breathing as a way to stay centered, rational, and vigilant. Research shows this is a great way to reduce your stress response and maintain optimal health in addition to making sure you're taking the appropriate vitamins and immune boosting nutrients. ...

Research has shown that the utilization of eye movement therapy activates multiple regions throughout the brain, driving brain activation and growth. The coupling of specific eye movements with visual stimulation (colors, patterns, etc.) and specific movements allows us to activate targeted regions of the brain affected by TBI, stroke, concussions, etc.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), stroke, and neurodegenerative disorders often affect how the eyes work and disrupt the visual process, interfering with how information is taken in and processed. This, in turn, causes issues relating to balance, dizziness, nausea, hand-eye coordination, reading speed/comprehension, light sensitivity, and fatigue.
At Revive, we emphasize the importance of the eye-brain connection and incorporate neuro-optometric assessments to identify the areas of the brain that have been affected by the condition. The Videonystagmography (VNG), or testing of eye movement, gives us a representation of the function of eye muscles, cranial nerves, brainstem nuclei, cerebellum and cortical regions. By measuring things like gaze stabilization, smooth pursuits, saccades, and optokinetics, it helps us to differentiate the areas of weakness. This allows us to create a unique, targeted treatment plan developed specifically for each patient. ... See MoreSee Less
