It's all about neuroscience.

Unlike conventional treatments that only focus on reducing symptoms, Aivo targets the root cause of chronic pain: your brain.

Professor Vania Apkarian of Northwestern University is a world-renowned neuroscientist who first discovered that chronic pain is maintained by emotional brain circuits, not tissue damage. With over two decades of experience working with thousands of people suffering from chronic pain, Professor Apkarian is revered by a global following of leading pain researchers, pain psychologists, physical therapists, and well-informed patient advocates.

Professor Apkarian’s research emphasizes that emotional learning and memory underlie the long-term suffering of chronic pain. His pioneering work highlights that multi-modal therapy, including Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, can relieve and reverse chronic pain.

What is the Aivo Biotype?

The Aivo Biotype is a scientific classification of a person’s pain. Biotypes were originally discovered by Professor Apkarian using neuroimaging to detect patterns of brain connectivity.

Your biotype serves as a basis for personalized treatment. As your biotype may change during the treatment, we periodically reassess it to ensure the treatment path we offer is always the right one for you in each stage of recovery.

Think of the Aivo Biotype as the key to understanding your individual pain trajectory. Your biotype allows us to unravel the precise steps that will guide you to pain relief.

Aivo rewires your brain for lasting relief

Feel relief in weeks. Stop the pain rollercoaster with sustained relief.

Graph indicating that overall pain decreases only temporarily with short-term treatments.

Other treatments offer short-lived results

Standard pain management provides inconsistent relief and the pain always comes back. These treatments don’t provide sustainable relief because they don’t address how your brain has adapted to pain.

Permanent relief requires brain rewiring 

Aivo provides continuous care and identifies unique combinations of treatments that work best for you. With daily use of Aivo, your brain can rewire itself into a lasting state of recovery.

Aivo is evidence-based

With nearly $100M in funding for the research and hundreds of peer-reviewed publications, there is a staggering body of evidence supporting the Aivo approach.
