When we experience a traumatic event, our brain learns to protect us. Sometimes, our brains get stuck here, continuously trying to protect us when there we are no longer in danger. A 35 year-old woman with severe childhood abuse issues found herself in a constant state of hypervigilance and anxious discomfort. Various treatments had been provided over the course of the past 15 years with limited success. Psychotherapy and medications had enable a relative state of calm, but she did not feel like she was living the life that she wanted. Neurofeedback has reduced the level of vigilance and has increased her sense of well-being and positive outlook. Her hyper-aroused brain wave activity has slowed down allowing her to be more fully present to her current life and thus to be able to enjoy and benefit from the experiences that occur.
Our offices located in the tri-state area offer a private, safe environment for veterans and others with PTSD to benefit from neurofeedback therapy. Watch a video that describes the neurofeedback process.
