If anxiety or depression have been having a tremendous impact on your life, it’s time to learn about neurofeedback.
Maybe you are constantly feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, and simply plain exhausted. Perhaps you can’t concentrate on things you need to because the constant internal focus. And it’s likely you are constantly obsessing over things.
The good news is Neurofeedback can help.
Other Problems and Issues that We Treat with Neurofeedback:
- Panic Attacks
- Traumatic Brain Injury and Head Trauma
There is hope…
Neurofeedback is perhaps one of the most powerful tools for reducing anxiety and panic attacks.
Clients that come in our office have often done everything to help – from medications to meditation, from yoga to diet and exercise, to alcohol and stress reduction techniques.
Brain training (neurofeedback) is NOT about training you to simply “relax” or help manage stress.
Instead, it helps train the part of your brain that CONTROLS stress.
Helping Your Brain Do Its Natural Job
When people are dealing with anxiety, part of their brain is simply not doing its job of keeping them calm. How is it possible to help retrain that part of the brain? That’s precisely where neurofeedback comes in.
Neurofeedback is perhaps the quickest and fastest ways to teach you how to help yourself. These technologies have been used for many years with solid proven results. You can learn how to decrease anxiety and remain calmer with neurofeedback.
Here’s how Neurofeedback works to help manage anxiety
With anxiety, the brain is “frozen” or “stuck” in a dysfunctional pattern.
This is why medications often are unable to satisfactorily address the above conditions – increasing a chemical through supplements or medications, blocking a reaction or receptor, etc. does not help the brain achieve its natural state of flexibility, self-regulation, and focus.
When the neurofeedback equipment sends a very brief very tiny impulse to the brain (1/300 the strength of a cell phone signal) at a programmed rate, temporary fluctuation in the brainwaves occurs and prompts the brain to adjust itself.
This temporary change allows the brain to reorganize itself, re-orient itself, and become more flexible as it is intended. It gets “unstuck” from its mal-adaptive state. The brain rapidly and seemingly automatically gets accustomed to a better level of function – its natural ideal state that is free of unwarranted anxiety, pain, confusion, etc.
Thus, the specific type of neurofeedback that our office uses does not “train” the brain to change the brainwave patterns. Rather, it “dis-entrains” the brain by allowing itself to reorganize and release itself from those stuck, frozen patterns. It’s very similar to “re-booting” a frozen or malfunctioning computer, but it’s using the brain itself to get itself back into the normal regular healthy patterns that it naturally knows how to create.
