VABION LLC (VABION) announces the first retail location to distribute its therapeutic audio for cognitive dysfunction known as chemo brain. The specially designed audio track series, titled “Meet Me In The Garden,” is now available on CD at the Alan B. Pearson Regional Cancer Center in Lynchburg, VA. The company also provided listening devices for cancer patients in the infusion room, so that they could use the audio during treatment.

Dr. Susan Hardwicke, Chief Executive of VABION, said, “As a cancer survivor who experienced chemo brain, I needed help in reducing mental fog and anxiety, as well as increasing my focus. I designed the audio to help during the critical time during and after chemotherapy treatment.” Numerous test subjects who had chemotherapy or anxiety were connected to a brain wave monitoring device, which showed a marked improvement in the relaxed focus and “high stress”

Jane Simms, a massage therapist at the Alan B. Pearson Regional Medical Center, says, “I was very impressed with the CDs and kind of got mesmerized myself. I’m looking forward to using them with my patients. My hope is that they will do exactly what Dr. Hardwicke wants them to do- make people more relaxed and increase their focus to counter-act the chemo brain.”
