"Off Switches" are techniques to help settle symptoms, such as dizziness, eye strain, brain fog and nausea. These symptoms are common when someone experiences a concussion. Everyone is different, with different symptoms, so it can take a little bit of trial and error until you find what works for you!
These are some simple techniques you can try to help settle your symptoms and help regulate your autonomic nervous system. We need to teach autonomic nervous system that it is safe, to help calm our symptoms. These techniques can bring us from the "fight and flight" feeling, to the "rest and relaxation" state.
Please note that if you have a traumatic injury to the head that results in concussion, ensure your neck is clear of any fracture before adding compression in your neck!
