A Brain-Based Approach for Treating Anxiety
Decades of Brain research may have yielded an answer for why emotions are so hard to manage for some. It has to do with the alpha waves in our brains. So just what are alpha waves and why are they important?
Alpha waves are one of 4 main brainwaves that exist in every person (the others are Beta, Theta and Delta waves). Alpha waves help regulate our emotional state. Too much alpha can create an overload in the brain, resulting in excess stress, worry or fear. Conversely, too little alpha can slow down the brain’s ability to react to external stimuli, resulting in a lack of desire or ambition. This can result in depression or even suicidal thoughts. As you can see, they play a very important role in how you feel.
So how can one correct these alpha waves? One answer is Neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback is a computer-based technology that monitors brainwaves in real time using small electrodes attached to your scalp with paste. By monitoring brainwaves, neurofeedback can help target alpha waves and bring them back in balance using audio and visual feedback. The process is easy: you simply watch a movie or listen to music while the computer performs certain actions to help you focus and react. Over time these neurofeedback sessions gradually restore healthy alpha brainwaves, which can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of anxiety and depression. The process is safe, non-invasive, drug free and sessions are enjoyable.
