Neurofeedback to Ease Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal experience that comes with being human. Normally, a bit of anxiousness is conducive to pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to grow. However, there can be a point when everyday anxiety becomes more than just “healthy” stress. When this happens, an anxiety disorder may be present. Thankfully, treatments such as neurofeedback are available to help you feel more at peace and centered in your life without the anxious noise.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of therapy used to help the brain become more adaptable. This is done by rewiring neuropathways that have caused imbalances in the body, which often manifest as symptoms of anxiety.

Put more simply, this treatment aims to help the brain restore to levels that allow individuals to feel balanced and healthy again, especially in cases where drug or alcohol abuse is part of the equation. Neurofeedback therapy can help you break old habits, shift limiting beliefs, and heal past trauma.

What Can I Expect?

If you and your treatment team decide you are a good fit for neurofeedback therapy, you begin treatment by meeting with your treatment team to discuss what this intervention will look like for you according to your goals, concerns, and needs.

Neurofeedback begins with a process called brain mapping. Professionals measure your brain activity, which helps determine what the rest of your treatment may look like. In subsequent sessions, brain activity is measured as you complete activities, such as playing a video game or watching a video. This allows your brain to learn new patterns as you discover ways to self-regulate and lower your anxiety. Regular neurofeedback sessions can also enhance your cognitive functioning by improving your attention, focus, and memory.

Why It Works

Although there are several types of treatment available for anxiety, neurofeedback can change your life and relationship with anxiety. With neurofeedback, you can learn how to soothe yourself, regulate your emotions, and clear your mind. It’s also a good alternative to taking medication, with little to no negative side effects and plenty of potential benefits. While different things work for different people, neurofeedback has worked for many individuals who have anxiety time and time again.

Experiencing chronic anxiety day in and day out can be exhausting. While it may feel like anxiety is here to stay forever, it doesn’t have to. There are treatments available to help you break old habits, shift familiar ways of thinking, and heal from trauma keeping you stuck. Recovery and healing from anxiety are possible.

Living with anxiety can steal your ability to feel present, joyful, and connected in everyday life. Constant thoughts rooted in worry and feeling out of control can get exhausting.
