Mental & Emotional Stress & How We Can Help
Today, we are faced with the new kind of stress never before seen in human history, and it’s directly related to our high-tech, overloaded lifestyles. Doctors are calling it ‘“super stress” and the effects can be devastating, robbing you of good health, energy, mental harmony and quality-of-life.
Your body is designed to be in a relaxed, healing state most of the time. These days, however, most people spend the better part of your day in the super-stress state call the “fight-or-flight” response.
First a primer on Brainwaves.
Neuroscientists have categorized different brainwaves based upon their frequency (think of a radio that has stations transmitting on a particular frequency on the radio dial). The faster frequencies include Beta which is associated with the reaction to stress (fight or flight). Slower frequency brainwaves are Alpha (conscious relaxation/meditation and daydreaming), Theta (subconscious relaxation, where we hold memories, sensations and emotions) and Delta (deep sleep). Your brain is creating all of these frequencies at the same time, however at any particular time one or more frequencies with be increased while others are inhibited.
Your brain copes with fight-or-flight by producing more of a high-intensity brainwave known as beta, and suppressing the more relaxed Alpha. Once your brain habituates to this new stress pattern, it becomes difficult for you to wind down. You may experience faulty thinking, poor memory, lack of motivation, negative self talk, difficulty concentrating and low energy—all of which set the stage for unhealthy lifestyle habits such a stress eating and smoking.
We perform a Stress Response Evaluation using the Neuroinifiniti when beginning care in order to assess your brain’s response to stress and just as important to evaluate your brain’s ability to recover once that stress is removed. With this information we can better determine the best course of care for your particular concern.
Our office has incorporated the use of the BrainTap system which promotes healthy brain wave activity helping you change unwanted behaviors and habits, including those contributing to smoking, poor sleep habits and over eating, all while helping you feel more relaxed and attentive, energetic and motivated to succeed.
This state-of-the-art wearable technology harmonizes binaural beats and tones with gentle light pulses that travel through the ear meridians and the retina, sending direct signals to the brain and guiding you into deep relaxation. This innovative form of brainwave training is called frequency following response and it provides the maximum result in the least amount of time.
You simply slip on the BrainTap headset, and start the audio, lower the visor, close your eyes and relax while sitting in one of our comfortable chairs. You’ll enjoy an empowering BrainTap audio-session that is encoded to deliver the post productive power nap imaginable to aid the chiropractic adjustment in balancing brain function so that the body can better heal.
