Eliminate the debilitating effects of Anxiety and Panic Attacks!
What if you could eliminate the debilitating effects of Anxiety and Panic Attacks!
With neurofeedback, you can improve that awful feeling that anxiety brings. Whether brought on by a traumatic experience, social anxiety, post-concussion, or “just developed over time”, we can help you get to the root of the problem, so you can regain control of your life.Let go of what’s holding you back and live the life you want, the life you deserve.
Neurofeedback can help you:
– Gain a sustained deep sense of peace!
– Stop the cycle of worry and intrusive negative thoughts!
– Feel more calm, cool and collected!
– Boost your self-esteem, so you can feel more confident!
– Manage stress and cope with things better!
What’s happening in the brain for someone who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks?
Research shows that anxiety disorders can be due to too many Beta (High Frequency) brainwaves on the right side of the brain. These types of brain waves occur naturally when a person is awake and concentrating. Too many Beta brainwaves, however, can lead to anxiety and worry. Panic attacks are extreme cases of this imbalance, and due to the very nature of the anxiety attack itself, are very difficult to control on your own.
What does neurofeedback do?
Neurofeedback gets to the root cause of ADD and ADHD by correcting imbalances in brain activity.
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves in real time and sends signals to help the brain refocus and function better. It does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it targets irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved over multiple neurofeedback sessions as the brain is re-trained into normal patterns.
The result is an improvement in brain regulation which can impact a variety of symptoms.
Think of your brain as a musical quartet. When all musicians are in sync, the sound is harmonious. But if one musician is out of tune, the overall sound is affected.
Brainwaves operate in much the same way, working together to keep your mind and body in sync and running smoothly. If any brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively. Many common conditions like ADD, ADHD, anxiety, panic attacks and depression can occur when brainwaves are out of sync and running too fast or too slow. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to regulate its brainwaves properly which can result in better overall health.
How does neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback helps the brain refocus and operate better. The process is non-invasive, safe and requires very little effort by the patient.
Neurofeedback has 3 main goals:
- Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta)
- Guide those brainwaves back into regular patterns
- Teach the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves on the surface of your head by placing small sensors on your scalp. For the next 30 minutes, you get to watch a movie of your choice, listen to music or listen to audible tones. That is all that is required of you. It is non-invasive, uses no drugs and does not involve any electric shocks or radiation.
During a normal session, the computer monitors your brainwaves for any that are out of the normal range. When it finds one, the system triggers a response that changes the movie or music. This change is subtle enough to get your brain’s attention and make your brain focus more. Refocusing corrects the irregular brainwaves which then move into the normal range. At that time, the movie or music will resume normally. This process is called Operant Conditioning. Over the course of multiple sessions, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own. At that time, no further neurofeedback sessions are needed and you graduate from care.
How do we know we can help you?
There is no guess work in our office. We use the only non-invasive objective test available to measure brainwave activity, qEEG (aka Brain Mapping). This test is our starting point to determine if you are a good candidate. If accepted into care we do further testing (cognitive performance testing, functional neurologic examinations and neurotransmitter tests) to gain a clear picture of how to best manage your care prescription.
Every person under our care receives individual care there is no cookie cutter care in our office.
