EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) what it is, and why we use it.
Our brains are built with healing mechanisms to employ when needed, the case with EMDR is that it helps alert the brain its time. EMDR helps a person regain their control over their thinking, and the negative feelings associated with their thoughts. Our guests discover they are no longer at the mercy of racing or obsessive thinking. Especially in the case of trauma, EMDR helps our guests regain their mental and emotional clarity. Mental health is vital to letting go of an addiction, and the personalization of treating mental health is what sets Gulf Breeze Recovery apart from the rest- your plan is tailored to your needs and timeline. This is all part of the philosophy of total health recovery that you or your loved one will enjoy and love at Gulf Breeze Recovery.
Neurofeedback: What it is, why we use it.
Patients who have undergone neurofeedback sessions at Gulf Breeze Recovery have reported a wide range of positive outcomes; these include: decreased anxiety, increased attentiveness, improved sleep, and greater awareness of mental behavior.
Neurofeedback therapy is a process of monitoring the brain’s behavior by way of its electrical signals and using that information to reinforce positive brain behavior. This results in improved brain function and increased awareness of the role the brain’s chemical and electrical behavior plays in the decision making process.
The process of neurofeedback involves a series of sessions in which electrodes are attached to the scalp and brain function is monitored in real time. Essentially, calmer and less erratic brain activity is rewarded and brain activity associated with anxiety, rumination or fearful thinking is disincentivized in a noninvasive manner. This information is then shown back to the individual participating in the therapy along with visuals or audio signals. Working with a neurofeedback professional, the participant learns to develop the skills to regulate the performance of their brain.
