Anxiety is an individual’s response to stress or stimuli that can come from physical, dietary, or the environmental problems. The pattern of anxiety in the brain is very difficult to break once the brain gets locked in that cycle or “stuck”.
For individuals who suffer from anxiety simply learning how to change that pattern or “turn it off” can be life changing.
- Excessive Worrying
- Nagging Sense of Fear
- Overly Emotional
- Negative Thinking
- Poor Sleep Hygiene
- Lack of Concentration
- Feeling Overwhelmed
Some people who suffer from anxiety internalize it well but their brain never stops and others are outwardly anxious or nervous.
Anxiety can :
- Be Debilitating;
- Prevent you from enjoying life,
- Make taking care of your family difficult,
- Prevent you from performing well at work,
- Make you experience a decreased desire to be social and avoid activities like driving or being outside of the home, as well as a general negative physical feeling.
Neurofeedback can provide physiological help because it’s the valve that can help release the built up anxiety.
With brain training, people are able to develop the skills they need to reduce or eliminate anxiety in their life. Another reason is that Neurofeedback is one of the most efficient ways to teach people how to help themselves, and it’s easy to learn.
When a person is able to shift from high beta waves (fast neuron firing) to calm and focused waves they are able to develop stronger coping skills without the need for medication. It’s about getting the brain back in balance and control.
As you train your brain you are able to watch your brainwaves on an EEG monitor. As your brain learns to reduce anxiety and increase calm, you’re able to see it.
Like exercise for your brain the more we train you to produce the more calming waves the more likely it will be for you to do it on its own when its time. Neurofeedback is a form of learning for your brain. What most clients find is, as their brain learns how to keep under control, the less they need to come to training.
