Neurofeedback therapy is highly effective for people who suffer from long term stress. You see, stress is a normal part of life, and something all of us deal with daily. There are two types of stress, the first being acute stress, which can be physical and emotional and is typically event-oriented. It activates our “fight or flight mode,” only meant to stick around for a short period. The second is called chronic stress. Like acute stress, it can typically begin from an external event but often prolonged by inner thoughts and anxiety (worry). This kind can wreak havoc on your health because the person believes there is no way out of the stressful situation continually staying in the “flight or fight,” mode.
Symptoms of stress are, but not limited too, feelings of hopelessness, distress or anxiety, agitation, anger, depression. Trouble sleeping, Insomnia, back, jaw, or muscle pain. Poor concentration, lack of focus, poor memory, fatigue, overeating, and weight gain weight loss, high blood pressure, and weak immune system. Also, chronic stress can lead to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
Neurofeedback therapy is a highly effective treatment for stress reduction and management. Neurofeedback, which is a non-invasive treatment with zero side effects, has been proven to reduce anxiety long term. Our brain waves produce signals that can be used as feedback to help teach self-regulation to the brain function, bringing it back into balance. Neurofeedback therapy helps locate the area(s) of the brain causing chronic stress, and teaches a person how to retrain their brain to relax and focus during stressful situations. Many studies have proven that Neurofeedback therapy helps lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure reduces stress symptoms (mentioned above) and will enhance school, work, and athletic performance, resulting in a better quality of life.
It’s important to remember that our brain is the control center of our bodies and mind. Once the brain is balanced, a person’s body and life will find harmony.
