Everyone gets anxious at times, and this is a natural and necessary response to a stressor. When anxiety starts to consume daily life, it needs to be addressed. Heightened anxiety can lead to increased stress, and stress wreaks havoc on every part of your body. Biofeedback and Neurofeedback can help with anxiety disorders and heightened stress.
During the aging process, the issues start with forgetting if you left the stove on or forgetting where you left your keys, and eventually to people's names and even faces. Losing your memory is in most cases a slow and very discouraging process. You do not have to live with a slowly declining memory. The areas of your brain associated with memory can be re-trained to function optimally through Neurofeedback.
Smartphone games and crossword puzzles are not your answer to remaining sharp. They may make you better at the games, but do not make your memory or any other part of your brain function better. Neurofeedback is proven to make your brain function better, at any age.
Simply stated, if you are not sleeping correctly, you cannot function properly. Issues with sleep disturbances, insomnia, ruminations, list making and more can keep you up at night and not allow your body to recover as it needs to. Excessive activation in the executive network can be a main reason for your sleep issues, and both Neurofeedback and Biofeedback can help.
We can eliminate the "busy brain" problem when you are trying to get to sleep, and teach you how to calm down and remain in a relaxed state so you can stay asleep or go back to sleep eaisly if awoken. Sleep issues are at the heart of many disorders, and will be one of the first issues we target with Neurofeedback and Biofeedback.
Many people find that better sleep is the first "Side Effect" of Neurofeedback treatment...
Major depression affects 17% of the population in the US. Anti-depressants, the common fix for depression, leads to many adverse side-effects, more medication and in many cases, dependency. Many studies have shown that when your mood is poor, there is more activation in your right frontal area than your left. These well established findings can lead directly to a treatment using Neurofeedback and you may even be able to help decrease or cease medication over time. We also use Alpha-Stim technology to help aid in depression treatment.
Seizures can range from momentary mild disorientation to complete loss of muscle control and consciousness.
Anti-convulsive drugs are the most common type of treatment, and although in many cases they are effective in stopping seizure activity, their side-effects are among the worst in medication classifications.
Neurofeedback was actually founded around the reduction of seizure activity and has been well studied and implemented as a tool for the reduction of severity, frequency and duration of seizures since the 1960's.
