Understanding Trauma

Traumatic memories are stored differently in the brain.


The amygdala, a crucial part of the brain involved in emotional processing, plays a key role in the body's response to trauma.


​However, in the aftermath of trauma, the amygdala can become overly sensitive, leading to a persistent state of heightened alertness.


When a traumatic event occurs, the amygdala triggers a heightened state of alert, activating the body's fight-or-flight response.


This reaction is essential for survival, as it prepares the body to respond to immediate threats.

This heightened sensitivity can cause the individual to react intensely to memories, triggers, or situations that resemble the original traumatic event, even when there is no present danger.


As a result, the amygdala’s heightened reactivity can contribute to the ongoing symptoms of trauma-related disorders, such as PTSD, where the brain remains in a vigilant, often overreactive state, long after the actual threat has passed.

Neurofeedback for PTSD

Neurofeedback has been an effective treatment for all types of trauma for many years.  The proceedure involves a meditative protocol that provides feedback from your own brainwaves, with an organic opportunity to heal.  Even without our ability to meditate, relax, or even process the information, our brains settle.  The symphony of our own brainwaves are able to help create balance.
