Managing Anxiety Symptoms with Biofeedback

Anxiety and worry can overwhelmingly interfere with your daily life.  It can grip and fill you with panic and fear.  Anxiety, a silent killer, can be silenced when you learn how to turn off the switch to anxiety.

Anxiety, a vicious physiological and neurological reaction, causes what’s called the fight or flight reaction.  This reaction releases adrenaline and other stress hormones to course through your body.  When no real threat exists, releasing excess stress hormones perpetuates an unnatural reaction.  The unnatural reaction to imagined stressors can eventually cause you to feel more than stressed – it can cause you to feel completely out of control.

Anxiety is a neural connection response (and sometimes reaction) that can be triggered by a variety of causes including genetics.  Simply being in a highly sensory stimulating situation such as being in crowds of people or even the simple act of having to make a choice can result in anxiety or panic attacks .

Managing Anxiety Symptoms with Biofeedback

Managing anxiety symptoms on your own can be difficult; but with biofeedback therapy you can learn to recreate your response without the use of medications.  Biofeedback allows you to be aware of your physiological reactions to various experiences and, if necessary, change them to helpful responses.  By becoming aware of how various experiences affect your body, you can begin to return your body’s reaction to a healthier physiological state.  This is done by visually seeing the brain’s activity related to an experience, then adding techniques that are taught to retrain the brainwave levels to a calmer state, and thus controlling the stress response.  Using biofeedback to naturally manage anxiety thinking, you can break the vicious anxiety cycle and relieve your feelings of fear and panic.
