Giving Your Brain a Protected Space to Heal
The research showing how exposure to extreme stress affects brain function is making important contributions to understanding the nature of traumatic stress. This includes the notion that traumatized individuals are vulnerable to react to sensory information with subcortically initiated responses that are irrelevant, and often harmful, in the present. Reminders of traumatic experiences activate brain regions that support intense emotions, and decrease activation in the central nervous system (CNS) regions involved in (a) the integration of sensory input with motor output, (b) the modulation of physiological arousal, and (c) the capacity to communicate experience in words (Van Der Kolk, B.A., 2006).
Studies have shown brainwave neuromodulation has an efficacy rate as high as 93% in addressing post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, depression, anxiety, or insomnia. There is a clear distinction between treating the mind and the brain. Integrated Renewal utilizes non-invasive neuromodulation as a core principle in its 360-approach to bring balance, healing, and sustained wellness to brain function, which directly impacts the autonomic nervous system.
Leading experts are addressing the increasing need for more than talk therapies to recover from prolonged stress and trauma.
Why Acoustic Brainwave Neuromodulation?
The brain responds differently to stress during varying stages of life. Acute and chronic stress take their toll, deadening synapses and neurotransmitters, the electrical conduits, and communicators within the brain, which allow an individual to feel, heal, and maintain healthy homeostasis. The deadening of these neurons and processes leads to decreased neurological efficacy and impacts chemical impulses, resulting in diminished interpersonal functions. In turn, the brain learns to operate in stuck-learned patterns as neurons become wired together, resulting in over/under-aroused states. This may exacerbate one’s ability to shed further stress, increases anxiety, impacts restful sleep, and alters the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.
In the last decade, there have been significant technological advances in the medical and psychological fields, which have expanded our understanding of neurology. EEG non-invasive sensors are placed on specific areas of the head to scan the lobes and hemispheres, identifying where there may be imbalance, or it is functioning in optimal states. Acoustic brainwave neuromodulation uses sound waves to influence neural oscillations, mirroring the brain, and stimulating the autonomic nervous system. Many clients fall asleep during sessions and find the sessions relaxing. Neuro imaging allows the brain to move from a flight, fright, and freeze state into a balanced recalibration of both hemispheres, aligning the brain. Treatments result in greater neuroplasticity and relief for PTSD, depression, anxiety, and improved sleep.
