Manage stress better with knowledge of your brainwaves

By Gretchen Morse, DMA, BCNS


Do you struggle to manage your day, due to stress and anger? Are you sad all the time? Does your brain seem to turn on and get busy right when it’s time to sleep? Or, do you have trouble focusing and/or staying on task?

Research from the 1960s showed that brains with too many slow waves or fast waves could manifest in a variety of cognitive, physical and emotional disorders. The researchers soon learned that clients could learn to create healthier and more efficient brainwave patterns on their own, through sound, visual or other “feedback” that helped the clients to know when they were producing more desirable frequencies.

Henry was a successful businessman but encountered a panic attack out of the blue one day. Through Neurofeedback, he learned that his brain had too many fast waves, which can contribute to anxiousness, anger, and sleep difficulties. Neurofeedback helped him to reduce the fast waves, and he gradually felt less anxious. Things that used to set off his panic, were barely noticeable, anymore.

Positive changes from Neurofeedback are generally long term to permanent, and it is endorsed by the Mayo Clinic, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
