Anxiety


Is it ANXIETY?

If you have been struggling with symptoms such as negative thinking, worry, overwhelm, panic attacks, or a mind that just won’t shut off for the more than the past 3 months, you may have an Anxiety Disorder. At Serenity Zone, we do not guess- we test to determine brain activity that can be causing or contributing to the symptoms of anxiety and then together create a plan of corrective action so you can reclaim your health.

Anxiety is a brain dysregulation problem. Once the triggering event occurs and the brain waves fire, based on the intensity and duration of the triggering event (like if it replays over in your mind again and again), this will produce a response of your brain getting stuck. Your brain is like a muscle and it quickly learns to adapt. If you keep firing the same pathway, the brain learns that pattern and stays there. It’s like getting caught in mud or the snow- once you’re in it, you spin your wheels trying to get out. It’s not until you get a “push” that finally you can get out of the rut and back on the road.  Neurofeedback is the push the brain needs to get back into a normal state of health and function.


What Causes ANXIETY and What Can You Do?

It’s important to understand that anxiety is normal and everyone feels it to some degree at different times in their life. These are helpful emotions that can keep us safe, out of danger, and help us adapt to our environment. However, when the anxiety becomes too extreme and begins to interfere with your day to day life, it may be time to find a therapist to help you find the tools you need to manage it. 

Anxiety can come on acutely from a traumatic event or over time due to chronic exposure of stressors that overload and overstimulate the system, evidently causing brainwave impairment.  

Your brain function is regulated by brain waves that interact and communicate with your neurotransmitters and over 100 trillion neurons. This complex system is designed to control and direct the function of the systems throughout the body in response to all incoming stimuli from our environment. Neurofeedback can help change the way your brain is used to responding to these stimuli by retraining it to perform in a more regulated way. 

Here at Serenity Zone

We use evidence-based clinical assessment and neuroimaging technology (QEEG) to map the brain, allowing us to discover how each individual’s brain is dysregulated and contributing to their symptoms.

Once we determine where the affected areas are, we create a corrective plan of care using the most cutting-edge neurotherapies and brain training tools to optimize the exact networks and pathways of the brain so the person can improve their clarity, focus, connection, confidence, and thinking patterns.

Care plans will typically include a combination of one or more of the following corrective and natural brain health modalities:

Braincore Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, Stress Management, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Light Therapy, Relaxation Therapy, Autogenic Training, and Individual or Group Counseling.

This comprehensive approach to your health delivers the correction, skills, and habits needed to continue improvement so you can optimize your health and life.
