The human brain evolves as we grow up from childhood to adulthood, integrating experiences and memories. The brain will create or erase connections depending on what we live and learn. Our ability to release tension or move forward after a negative experience affects how the brain handles the situations that follow. Thus the subconscious memories of our experiences shape our behavior. Most of the time, we are unaware of how the brain stores stories and memories. It is also difficult to see the changes when they are unconscious. As we all know, most of the work done by the brain is unconscious. This is also true for traumas. Unconscious traumas – even light traumas – can explain some blockages, stress or behavioral patterns. As a result, we can be uncomfortable in a seemingly insignificant situation. There are a variety of techniques that can be used to release such traumas and allow us to change behaviors that block us from enjoying a more fulfilling life. Our ten years of experience of brain training at InnerOptimal have shown that when the brain is given the right tools and information, it can clean and clear traumas, and rewire itself to overcome them.
This month we share with you a testimonial of a client who came to see us because she had panic attacks. Although Cara* was happy in her life, living in a good family relationship and workplace, she would wake up in the middle of the night because of panic attacks, not knowing why. A panic attack can strike at any time. It is described as a feeling a terror or extreme fear that is not necessarily related to what is happening around them. Symptoms may vary and can include “racing” heart, feeling weak, faint or dizzy, feeling sweaty or having chills, chest pains, breathing with difficulty, or feeling a loss of control.
Cara was waking up breathless in the middle of the night because of her panic attacks. She came to InnerOptimal as she was looking for a natural solution. Brain training with NeurOptimal® helped her release the stress she had accumulated over time. The reason for these panic attacks remained unknown but as her training progressed, she noticed that they were disappearing until the panic attacks stopped completely. NeurOptimal® is a non-invasive dynamical neurofeedback that let the brain works throughout the training at its own pace, healing and re-wiring neural connections as needed.
Moral: We do not always need to know WHY something is happening, we need a way to solve the problem. We would love to help you do just that.
