Stress, also known as the silent killer - mental or emotional strain or tension that results from adverse or very demanding circumstances – can weigh heavily on a person's health. It can increase a person's risk for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and many different mental health problems like anxiety and sleeping disorders, something very common among our patient base in Puerto Rico. Stress reduces the quality of life and makes it difficult to handle the day-to-day pressures of living.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive approach used to normalize brain wave patterns in order to function more efficiently, improve our emotional state and increase cognitive performance. Thanks to the neuroplasticity of our brain, improvements can be seen regardless of age. Neurofeedback helps teach you the connection between your emotions and your body. When your brain is functioning better and is more aware and connected to your emotions, you can live a calmer, more productive and happier life.
"Often times, we imagine our brain as a dark room we don't have access to. Neurofeedback helps you get to know your brain and make it work for you not against you."
