Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the United States. Up to 40 million American adults are affected by anxiety, and though anxiety can be treated, less than 40% of those who suffer receive treatment.
When there is disorder or imbalance in your brain chemistry, your chances of suffering from anxiety rise. Your brain may struggle to cope with the normal stresses of everyday life and push your nervous system into fight-or-flight mode, causing feelings of panic and anxiety.
The good news is, CES (Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation) is an effective, healing option for anxiety in children, teens and adults! CES transmits a gentle frequency via ear clips or gelled electrode pads. This “re-programs” neurotransmitters in the brain and helps restore order to the chaos. Rather than just treating the symptoms, CES focuses on addressing the root of anxiety for many people: an imbalance in the brain.
The effects of CES on the brain are cumulative. Some patients notice an immediate sense of calm and clarity after one treatment or shortly thereafter. I use the device during many treatment sessions, especially when stress is at the top of my patient’s complaint list.
