What is EPIC Treatment?
Start with an fNCI Brain Scan
Begin your treatment journey with our specialized fMRI scan known as functional NeuroCognitive Imaging (fNCI). Through this powerful scan, our team will unveil the intricate reasons behind your specific symptoms, providing valuable insights.
With your fNCI results as their compass, our therapists customize your appointments with specific tasks that precisely target the underlying cause of your symptoms
While you are in EPIC Treatment, you will undergo several days of intensive therapy. The therapies you participate in will encompass a diverse range of disciplines and focal points.
Each day you will experience a dynamic rotation of therapies that are all focused on adapting to your scan results, prioritizing your needs, and remediating your symptoms.
These sessions primarily target your body's ability to self-identify and heal ongoing symptoms. Our skilled neuromuscular therapists show that post-concussion symptoms extend beyond just your head and brain.
During this session, you will participate in techniques that enhance your breathing, improve balance and stimulate your vestibular system, receive therapeutic massage to enhance mobility and fluidity in your head and neck, and engage in exercises that boost cerebral blood flow and promote the release of neurotransmitters.
Experience the expertise of our certified speech-language pathologists who specialize in cognitive therapy. During your sessions, your brain will undergo a stimulating workout designed to enhance both your short and long-term memory, attention span, and overall executive functioning.
These sessions help you improve your cognitive abilities and unlock your full potential.
Our occupational therapy focuses on identifying and addressing vision issues to enhance the brain's visual connections.
During our sessions, we incorporate tasks that combine vision and the vestibular system, attention and memory, and even word recall and motor skills. These tasks are designed to improve visual perception skills such as saccades, pursuits, convergence, and divergence.
Neurointegration Therapy aims to evaluate the individual functions of sight, balance, movement, and integration systems, with the ultimate goal of rehabilitating inefficient systems.
This therapy collaborates with neuromuscular therapists to reintegrate these systems effectively.
Psychotherapy and mindfulness are powerful tools in addressing the emotional and psychological toll that often accompanies brain injury. By tapping into these therapeutic practices, we can help you navigate and heal from the profound impact of your injury.
During your sessions with our psychologists, they will carefully assess your individual needs throughout the course of treatment and may offer recommendations for ongoing psychological support beyond your treatment.
Our sensory therapies are designed to stimulate multiple senses simultaneously. By utilizing specialized tools, we activate both your visual and auditory systems, creating an overwhelming sensory experience.
This allows our therapists to specifically target areas in your brain while minimizing its ability to compensate for weaker areas.
Final Results and A Post-Care Plan
Upon completion of your treatment, each patient undergoes a final fNCI scan. The results of this scan will be thoroughly reviewed with you, allowing for a meaningful comparison to your first scan.
Following your final fNCI results, you will work with a patient care specialists to develop a personalized post-care recovery plan that takes therapist recommendations, as well as insights gained from your final fNCI scan to ensure that your recovery continues even after you return home.
Our commitment to your well-being extends beyond the completion of treatment. Upon returning home, you will receive follow-up emials from your patient care specialists. This contact aims to guide your recovery, address any lingering questions or concerns you may have, and to ensure that you have the ongoing support you need.

Starting EPIC Treatment
The steps you need to start EPIC treatment with us
The process begins with new patient paperwork that gives us background information about you and your injury. We use the paperwork to make sure that it is safe for you to receive an MRI, and determine whether our treatment could be a good fit for you.
Schedule a Consultation
During your consultation, you will meet with a Neuroscience Practitioner to discuss your injury and determine if you would be a good fit for treatment at Cognitive FX. In the second half of the consultation, you will meet with one of our logistics specialists to discuss scheduling, travel, and other details regarding getting to treatment.
Confirm Your Treatment
After you have discussed a treatment week in the consultation, we will hold that treatment week for 5 business days before you will need to confirm your EPIC treatment. In order to confirm your treatment week, we require a deposit and a signed Confirmation and Cancellation policy.
Prepare for Treatment
Once you are confirmed for treatment you will receive various documents and recommendations to help you prepare for your treatment with Cognitive FX. Such recommendations include improving your sleep hygiene, getting in the habit of exercising regularly, and sending us previous medical records that are relevant to your treatment.
Your Treatment Week
You should expect to show up on the Monday of your treatment week, in comfortable exercise clothes, prepared to stay for approximately 8 hours. We ask that you do not plan any additional appointments during your treatment week. Lunch and snacks will be provided
Before you leave the clinic on your last day, you will meet with a member of our Patient Care team to go over an at-home program to continue your improvement, based on recommendations from your therapist. Our Patient Care team will follow up with you periodically in the months following your treatment to help you reach your treatment goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions about EPIC Treatment
How successful is EPIC Treatment?
EPIC treatment boasts an impressive success rate, with over 90% of our patients experiencing significant improvements in brain function. On average, patients reduce their post-concussion symptoms by 60% by the end of their scheduled treatment, and many continue to see further progress even after returning home and following our at-home program.
While most patients witness positive changes during or after treatment, individual responses may vary, prompting the development of our comprehensive at-home program to support continued recovery.
Occasionally, individuals may not experience any improvement. While this is rare, in most cases this happens because the symptoms patient's experience can appear like they are related to a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury but are in fact connected to other conditions such as permanent brain damage, mental health conditions, or other health conditions. During consultations, we thoroughly assess pre-existing conditions to determine eligibility, however, we rely entirely on our patients giving us honest, accurate, and comprehensive background on their health so that we can provide them with correct information. We only recommend treatment if we believe that we can genuinely help them.
While our success rates are remarkable, we recognize that personal health outcomes can vary. We do not claim universal effectiveness, but we are committed to providing you with the best information to make an informed decision. Take advantage of our free consultation with our practitioners and feel free to ask any questions - your recovery is our top priority.
Do you have multiple locations?
Currently, our only location is in Provo, Utah, but don't let that stop you!
Most of our patients travel here from all across the United States and from many countries worldwide. We have a talented administration staff that can guide and help you find your way here.
Which Airport should I book my flight to/from?
Cognitive FX is conveniently situated just a 45-minute drive away from the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), offering a wide range of flight choices for patients worldwide.
Located just a short 10-15 minute drive from Cognitive FX is the Provo Municipal Airport (PVU). This airport is serviced by Allegiant Air, the exclusive airline operating in PVU. It's worth noting that these flights may not always appear on popular search engines like Google Flights. Therefore, we recommend visiting Allegiant Air's website directly to see if there is a convenient flight available for you.
Where will I stay if I am not from Utah?
Cognitive FX has established a close partnership with a nearby hotel to offer our patients exclusive rates, as well as a convenient shuttle service that will transport you to and from the clinic. You can learn more about the hotel accommodations during your consultation or by calling our office.
When should I arrive for Treatment?
If you are traveling from outside of Utah, we recommend you arrive 1 to 2 days before your first appointment, to ensure that you are settled before your Monday morning appointments.
If you are coming from another country, we recommend arriving 2 to 3 days before your first appointment to give you time to adjust to the time difference.
Do I need to get work or school off for EPIC Treatment?
During your stay at Cognitive FX, your schedule will be filled with consecutive appointments, allowing for no time to engage in other activities throughout the day. Given the rigorous nature of the treatment, it is strongly advised that you refrain from participating in any work or school commitments during your week of treatment.
Do I need to have someone come with me during treatment?
It is helpful to have someone with you while you receive your fNCI results in the Report of Findings that typically occur on your first and last day. However, during the rest of your treatment, we recommend attending your therapy appointments alone, so that we can give you our full attention.
What is the cost of EPIC Treatment?
The cost of your treatment can vary greatly depending on your specific needs and the treatment option you select during your consultation. Our pricing ranges from $3,500 to $25,000. To get more detailed information about our pricing, please visit our dedicated pricing page.
