“Anxiety is usually a person’s response to stress, which can come from psychological, physical, dietary, or environmental sources, like loud noises. Once a person’s brain gets locked into a pattern of anxiety, it can be difficult to break. For anxiety sufferers, learning how to modulate or turn off chronic stress responses is life changing.

Neurofeedback provides physiological assistance and helps people learn to change their responses to stress. With brain training, they can develop the skills they need to reduce or eliminate anxiety in their lives” 1.

“A recent study concludes that acupuncture relieves generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), a condition characterized by excessively intense and debilitating chronic anxiety. GAD sufferers cannot relax, startle easily and have impaired concentration. Overall, GAD sufferers are chronically worried and anxious.
In this new study, researchers note that “a number of Meta analysis and system evaluations point out that acupuncture treatment has more advantages than drugs in the treatment of anxiety disorders….” The researchers also note that acupuncture has a fast effective action and high compliance. In addition, acupuncture has a relatively minimal risk of side effects compared with drug therapy.” 2.
