Dave Siever conducted research with Dr. Norman Thomas, an internationally recognized specialist in the area of Temporo-Mandibular Dysfunction and myofacial pain. During his employment with the University, Dave developed equipment for the TMJ research laboratory and Educational Psychology Department. These devices included TENS stimulators, biofeedback devices, gnathodynamometers, signal processing and EMG spectral analysis equipment. Dave published a paper with Dr. Norman Thomas on the effects of audio-visual stimulation in the 4th European Congress of Hypnosis.
Over the years, Dave has helped treat approximately 1500 patients with TMJ and MPD. Dave’s realization that many TMJ problems were psychologically related, prompted him to pursue his interest in biofeedback. This brought about the inception of the original D.A.V.I.D. 1 in the spring of 1985, which was used in the Faculty of Arts to help acting students overcome stage fright.
Since then Dave has continued to develop several Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE), Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES), transcranial DC Stimulation (tDCS) and biofeedback devices, with each new development responding to the changes in technology and the demands of the marketplace. Dave continues to design new products relating to personal growth and well-being. See: mindalive.com
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.
