Fortunately, your brain can produce its’ own opioids, called endorphins. Endorphins are neurochemicals released in the brain that fill the opioid receptors. When the receptors are filled, a signal is sent to release another neurochemical called dopamine, which can help with pain-relief and control withdrawal.
The Sparrow Therapy System delivers personally tailored mild electrical signals through the skin on and around the ear — known as transcutaneous auricular neurostimulation or tAN™.
The electrical signals target specific nerves that activate areas of the brain that release endorphins.
These endorphins then fill the empty opioid receptors. This satisfies the receptors and helps to aid in the reduction and prevention of withdrawal symptoms.
