To be anxious about going to the dentist or going out on a first date is normal and healthy. Anxiety is a normal reaction to situations you feel uncertain about. However, some people experience anxiety on a near-constant basis. They may feel anxiety about the many things going on in their life, or their anxiety may be generalized. This is often associated with the feeling of having no control. Anxiety can take hold of a person’s life and make them feel limited and frozen in place.

What is Anxiety? Does Anxiety mean the same as having an Anxiety Disorder?
To experience anxiety is normal, but anxiety that is persistent and excessive to the degree where it impacts the quality of life and your behavior may be an anxiety disorder. Individuals with an anxiety disorder can experience fear and intense worry about otherwise innocuous daily events.
These strong feelings of fear and apprehension interfere with everyday life, can last a while, and are often very difficult to control. People can develop anxiety disorders at any point in their lives, such as in childhood, and continue to experience them well into adulthood.
Anxiety disorders can show up in different ways in each person’s life. Some people develop multiple disorders.
Anxiety is often caused by stress involved with environmental factors, such as overwhelming work. The main ways that anxiety shows its presence in someone’s life is through feeling restless and not being able to control worry. There are a few types of common anxiety disorders, these include:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
This disorder causes anxiety to be present in the daily activities of a person’s life. GAD can affect a person physically, making them feel sick or breathless. GAD may also accompany other disorders such as depression. People with GAD worry about even small problems and feel they have limited control of their lives and feelings.
This disorder involves panic attacks. Panic attacks are intense feelings of fear and anxiety that occur suddenly. People with Panic Disorder often avoid settings or situations in which the attacks have occurred. Panic attacks frequently include shortness of breath (hyperventilation), intense fear, and pounding heart palpitations. This disorder can cause an individual to withdraw from social life.
People with social phobia will avoid social settings in which they feel self-conscious and where they may be judged negatively.
Many other phobias and disorders are derived from anxiety. Anxiety is present in obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Whether or not you have been diagnosed with one of these forms of anxiety, neurofeedback treatment can help. If you identify with any of these symptoms or think that your child may, neurofeedback therapy will allow us to understand the functions of the brain and develop a treatment plan.
People with anxiety may be at risk of:
- Disorders like depression
- Substance abuse
- Digestive problems
- Issues functioning in society
Don’t let your anxiety develop into something worse. Neurofeedback therapy will help you manage your symptoms and prepare you for your best future!

Remedies for Anxiety
There are a few treatments available today to treat anxiety. One of the primary methods of treating anxiety is with drugs.
The problem with treating anxiety with drugs is that all medications come with side effects. Drugs are also a temporary fix to anxiety and may alter the individual’s personality. It’s always a difficult decision whether or not to have you or your child take medications, and at NeuroZone we understand that difficulty. That’s why we present our patients with a successful anxiety treatment that does not include medications, side effects, or temporary improvements. Our approach to anxiety treatment is not personality altering in any way. At NeuroZone. we offer our patients therapy for their anxiety. Neurofeedback is an alternative solution to improving your anxiety symptoms, and ultimately improving your life.
About Anxiety Treatment Without Drugs
Our goal is to provide patients with a safe solution that does not include the risks of medication.
Anxiety treatment does not need to be treated with drugs! An impressive alternative to anxiety medication is neurofeedback, also known as biofeedback. At NeuroZone Inc., we are passionate about providing our patients with a healthy alternative solution to their anxiety symptoms. Neurofeedback can provide long-term improvement for our patients where medication only offers temporary improvement. Neurofeedback is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety symptoms and improve the quality of your life.
During a neurofeedback appointment, you will be given a comfortable seat and sensors will be placed on your scalp. You will then watch a movie or play a game. Our equipment will display and record brainwave activity so we can analyze the data. Your brainwaves will be monitored, showing what brain functions contribute to feelings related to anxiety. As you play the game or watch the video, your brain activity will be retrained to stay within healthy, normal functions. Multiple treatments will allow your brain to improve itself subconsciously.
The Science of Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is based on neuropsychology, neurosciences, computer science, as well as family and child therapy. By analyzing how your brain functions, we can develop an understanding of the base of your anxiety symptoms.
Neurofeedback will help you learn about yourself and how you function. This treatment will help you correct your brain waves and help you gain control of your anxiety.
In your first session, we will diagnose your anxiety with qEEG technology. EEG stands for electroencephalography and is a way to understand the brain’s activity. This technique will map your brain and analyze its functions. Sensors will be placed on your scalp and will measure and record your brain’s electrical activity. This activity will show up on our computer screen and will be analyzed by our staff.
Our highly trained staff will study the feedback and ascertain the areas of the brain that are not functioning optimally. The areas will be identified and correlated to your anxiety symptoms. Based on this information, a treatment plan will be created to help improve your brain function. With that information in mind, we can create a treatment plan for you.
Neurofeedback training helps to reinforce positive, optimal brain functions. This holistic approach to anxiety gets to the root of your symptoms and offers up a healthy way for you to understand and approach your symptoms on a daily basis.
Anxiety symptoms are neurologically based, however, most diagnoses do not monitor brain function to help the patient understand the degree or patterns of their anxiety. Unlike medications that will treat anxiety by trial and error, neurofeedback uses brain mapping to target the regions and networks of the brain that are impacted by anxiety.
One size does not fit all and anxiety should not be medicated as either a long- or short-term solution. Anxiety is unique for each person and our brain mapping technology allows us and you to understand how the disorder affects you.
Non-drug treatment is available for you or your children! Neurofeedback is the ideal healthy option that will give you a bright future.
Children and adults should not have to grow dependent on drugs to feel good about themselves or feel that they need medication to function with others. Neurofeedback offers a safe alternative to anxiety treatments like medication. Neurofeedback offers many advantages, such as:
- Does not cause negative side effects
- Offers long-term improvement
- Internalized learning
