Neurofeedback has been shown to change the brainwaves associated with anxiety and chronic stress.
This technique has been effectively used since the 1970’s and is well documented as a way to help people decrease anxiety symptoms.
The goal of neurofeedback for anxiety symptoms is to help the brain learn to transition to a calm state of mind.
Neurofeedback will help you learn brainwave patterns associated with being emotionally stable.
Do you feel you are stuck in a “worry loop?”
Do you have difficulty concentrating because you are ruminating on past or future events?
Does your anxiety relate to problems sleeping, feelings of fatigue or frequent illness?
Some of these concerns could be related to how your brain is functioning.
There is a way to change the the way your brainwaves are functioning so that your mind and body can stay calm and be able to focus.

Seyed Hosseini and colleagues (2016) conducted a randomised controlled clinical trial study to determine if NF was effective in reducing the symptomology of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) in military staff. Thirty participants were assigned to either a control or NF training group. The NF group received 12 sessions of NF training, while the control did not receive any intervention. The NF training led to a significant reduction in GAD symptom severity among military staff.
Lucas Koberda (2014) from the Tallahassee Neurobalance Centre (USA) found that low-resolution electromagnetic tomography (LORETA) Z-score NF training significantly reduced anxiety symptoms in 24 (out of 31) neuropsychiatric patients. The researchers suggested that the intervention was effective because it specifically targeted cortical regions which were disregulated including the anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortex.
