Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious type of anxiety caused by an extremely stressful event or series of events.
Most people who suffer from PTSD are looking for an effective way to treat their symptoms, but unfortunately, many sufferers experience only limited benefit after trying various therapies and medication.
Neurofeedback trains the brain to potentially produce a calm state, as well as regulate the stress response.
The specific areas of the brain affected by PTSD may be targeted and trained to produce in many cases healthier patterns. Frequently, the first sign of improvement is that a client sleeps better. Then other symptoms begin to improve, and it is often possible to significantly reduce medications. After sufficient training, a person with PTSD may have the ability to maintain a calm state on his or her own. When they have reached this stable state, neurofeedback treatments can be decreased until no further training is necessary.
