PTSD


Is it PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs after a stressful or traumatic event leaving a wake of symptoms in its path. From anxiety and depression to fear, guilt, and shame, the emotional toll impacts daily lives, careers, and relationships. As a result, most people who suffer from PTSD are looking for an effective way to treat their symptoms so they can get back to living a normal life.

If you believe that you are struggling with symptoms of PTSD, our team can help.  Here at Serenity Zone we take a comprehensive clinical approach to managing and overcoming PTSD. Together we will help you breakfree from the stress and triggers in a safe and healthy way for enhanced health, happiness and wellbeing.


What Causes PTSD?

With PTSD, a severe stress response is triggered- the challenge is to teach the brain to turn off the stress response.

Research shows that the traumatic stress experienced by those suffering from PTSD has a lasting change on the brain. It affects the amygdala involved in emotional memory, the hippocampus responsible for long term memory, and prefrontal cortex which modulates emotion. Each of these centers change, negatively impacting brainwave function.  

The good news is there is hope and there is help. The specific areas of the brain affected by PTSD can also be targeted and retrained to produce healthier patterns. This retraining creates a relaxation in the brain and teaches it new ways to handle the stress. As brainwaves are rebalanced, function improves, leading to better mood, sleep, cognitive function, and adaptability in daily life.

Neurofeedback is an FDA approved therapy that trains the brain and enhances brainwave function. It has been clinically shown to improve how the brain processes incoming stimulus for improved health and wellbeing.

Here at Serenity Zone

We use the most evidence based clinical assessment and neuroimaging technology (QEEG) to map the brain. This allows 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 mood, motivation, 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.
