Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Neurofeedback and EMI
Experiencing a traumatic event can affect the brain activity and generate significant symptoms such as anxiety, hyper vigilance, sleep disorders, dependence problems, etc ..
So what can we do to calm the brain areas that have been over stimulated by the traumatic event? Medication can be used to help with various symptoms. Psychotherapy can also be used, but it must be performed by an experienced professional, since every time we relive a memory, it is either transformed or anchored deeper in our mind, for better or for worse.
At the Neuroperforma clinic, we use different effective techniques such as neurofeedback, biofeedback and Eye Movement Integration (EMI). The role of neurofeedback is to calm the brain regions that are placed in alert mode following the trauma and have then become hyperactive. Biofeedback will allow the individual to calm himself when he feels his stress level rise. Finally, we will use the Eye Movement Integration (EMI) technique to “deprogram” the emotions generated by the traumatic event.
With these 3 techniques used in parallel, our success rate in rehabilitation following a post traumatic stress disorder surpasses by far the traditional approaches. The underlying scientific pertinence, as well as the clinical results obtained have led the US Army to recommend this type of intervention for its members suffering post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD).
