biofeedback

Research has found both biofeedback and neurofeedback are a highly effective, safe, non-invasive way to calm the neurological and physiological systems down and relieve the feelings of anxiety. With most anxiety, high beta waves, the real fast waves, (in the illustration) are dominating and the mind is operating at an extreme pace, with fear, worry and obsessive thoughts being in control.  Beta brain waves activate all systems and can demand and use large amounts of energy and physical resources,  resulting in exhaustion, mentally and physically. With biofeedback and neurofeedback you teach the brain self regulation and create a more balanced state in the brain wave patterns.  Not to say you will never feel anxious again, but, how you react in the situation will change because the brain wave patterns have changed.

Social Anxiety is a strong fear of being judged by others and of being embarrassed.  This fear can be so strong that it gets in the way of going to work or school or doing everyday things.  Everyone feels anxious or embarrassed at certain times.  Meeting new people, or giving a public speech can make anyone nervous.  But people with social anxiety worry about these and other things for weeks before and after they happen.

People with social anxiety generally tend to; be very anxious about being with other people and  have a hard time talking to them, be very self-conscious in front of other people and feel embarrassed, have a fear others will judge them, or stay away from crowded places.

Social anxiety usually starts during youth and without treatment can last for many years or a lifetime.  Some turn to medication for symptom management, however, this is not the answer for everyone.  Biofeedback, learning how to create balance in the autonomic nervous system, has been rated a clinical efficacy rating of 4 out of 5, as an anxiety treatment. Learning how to breathe at an optimal rate can change your heart rate and change the nervous system.

Social anxiety sometimes runs in families, but no one knows for sure why some people have it, while others don’t.  Researchers have found that several parts of the brain and certain frequencies are involved in fear and anxiety. With most anxiety, high beta waves, the real fast waves, are dominating and the mind is operating at an extreme pace, with fear, worry and obsessive thoughts being in control.  Beta brain waves activate all systems and can demand and use large amounts of energy and physical resources,  resulting in exhaustion, mentally and physically. With biofeedback and neurofeedback  you teach the brain self regulation and create a more balanced state in the brain wave patterns.
