Understanding Anxiety

Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, fear, or unease that can range from mild to severe. It is a natural response to stress and can sometimes be beneficial in helping us cope with difficult situations. However, for people with anxiety disorders, this response becomes excessive and overwhelming, affecting their daily lives.

Living with anxiety can be challenging and debilitating, as it can interfere with work, relationships, and mental health. Although each individual has a unique experience living with anxiety, there are some common anxiety symptoms that one may experience.

Some typical signs of anxiety include:

  • Racing Thoughts
  • Restlessness or Feeling on Edge
  • Muscle Tension and Aches
  • Difficulty Concentrating or Focusing
  • Irritability and Agitation
  • Difficulty Sleeping or Staying Asleep

While there are several treatment options available for anxiety, including therapy and medication, many people are seeking alternative methods to manage their symptoms. This is where the BioMat comes in.

What Is the BioMat?

The BioMat is a cutting-edge therapeutic tool that combines advanced technology with natural elements like far-infrared rays, negative ions, and amethyst crystals. Designed using state-of-the-art engineering, the BioMat harnesses these elements to create a soothing and healing environment that promotes relaxation, rejuvenation, and overall well-being.

Far-Infrared Rays

Far-infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that penetrate deep into the body, gently warming the tissues and promoting circulation. This gentle heat helps to relax muscles, reduce tension, and ease anxiety. As the BioMat emits far-infrared rays, it creates a comforting sensation that calms the body and mind, providing a nurturing environment for healing and restoration.

Negative Ions

Nature has gifted us with negative ions abundantly found in serene environments like forests, waterfalls, and beaches. These ions have been scientifically proven to enhance mood, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being. The BioMat releases negative ions, replicating the healing properties of nature and creating an environment that fosters tranquility, relaxation, and emotional balance.

Amethyst Crystals

Amethyst, a beautiful purple crystal, has been revered for its healing properties for centuries. It promotes tranquility, relieves stress, and enhances spiritual growth. The BioMat incorporates amethyst crystals, allowing their energy to permeate through the body, restoring harmony and encouraging a profound sense of calmness and inner peace.

BioMat's unique combination of far-infrared rays, negative ions, and amethyst crystals offers a range of therapeutic benefits that can alleviate anxiety and promote emotional well-being.

Benefits of the BioMat for Anxiety

Many people who live with an anxiety disorder often find relief from their symptoms by incorporating the BioMat into their daily routine.

Some additional key benefits of using the BioMat for anxiety relief include:

  • Promotes relaxation and reduces stress levels
  • Enhances mood and emotional well-being
  • Improves circulation and oxygen flow, promoting calmness and restfulness
  • Relieves muscle tension and aches, reducing physical symptoms of anxiety
  • Encourages a sense of balance and inner peace

The BioMat takes a holistic approach to anxiety relief by addressing the root cause of anxiety, which is imbalance in the mind, body, and spirit. By promoting relaxation, increasing circulation, and enhancing overall well-being, the BioMat not only helps to ease anxiety symptoms but also cultivates inner harmony and balance.

Patient Testimonials

Susan Doyle

I started by seeing Dr. Sudhir Rao for my Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Syndrome. I had an accident in July 2010 that caused nerve damage in my ankle. After treatments and surgery, it spread up the entire left side of my body. The only way to describe how you feel is by saying you’re a human pinball machine ? you just never know where the pain is going to be that minute. I had asked about acupuncture because someone had told me that it worked for them. I was at the point of trying anything to lessen the pain because it was getting worse every day.

Anonymous Patient

I am actually a relatively healthy 50-year-old woman. I try to eat well and exercise, but I (like many) felt the creep of age in the form a subtle pounds and decreasing energy. Dr. Rao helped point me in the direction of the correct detox program for me (Core Restore!) as well as the supplements I needed to boost my metabolism and increase my energy! I still need to eat what works for me and avoid the things that don't, and I still have to exercise every day, but my clothes fit better and I have more energy!!

Anna Smoot

I came to see Dr. Rao with symptoms of chronic fatigue, abdominal pains, depression, and weight gain. I had seen a couple other doctors and they had found that I had very high inflammation levels and over 15 food allergies/sensitivities. They wanted me to just take prescription drugs, but I wanted more than a quick fix. I wanted my health and my life back! When I scheduled the appointment, I was surprised how by helpful Kelly was on the phone. I didn’t know the details of my insurance coverage and Kelly offered to call my insurance for me. I’ve never had anyone at a doctor’s office do that before.

Debbie Helman

After visiting the Shakthi website and reading other patient testimonials, I was curious about the wide variety of treatments that were available. I have a very slow metabolism, was fatigued, had insomnia, back pain, and just didn’t feel as well as I wanted to in general. I had more allergic reactions and respiratory issues in the preceding months before coming to see Dr. Jyothi Rao. I had completed three courses of prednisone while under the treatment of my traditional doctor and was fed up with that cycle and was looking for another path.

- Debbie Helman

Linda J.

I was given the gift of Dr. Rao's integrative specialty care for Christmas in 2016. I didn?t take advantage of it until March of 2017. My mindset at the time was negative. I had heard about changing eating habits and I felt that I liked the foods I was eating and I was nearly 70, so why change now? After meeting with Dr. Rao and hearing her suggestions, I said I would take it one small step at a time and see what happens.

I was in the worst shape of my life

I was in the worst shape of my life with depression and anxiety. I had given up. Shakthi provided me with a manageable plan that included supplements, diet, and an exercise program that has transformed my body and given me a new outlook on life. Perhaps the most surprising outcome was learning how to be healthy and have a good relationship with my body. I am now more productive, energetic, and focused. The fog that had been clouding my thoughts has lifted.

We offer personalized, comprehensive consultations focusing on preventative cardiology care and nutrient deficiencies to develop a plan to correct a body out of balance.

Treatments We Offer

IV Therapy allows patients an alternative way to treat symptoms of various health conditions like chronic pain, adrenal fatigue, asthma, immune disorders, and fibromyalgia. The IV Therapy treatment can also be used as an alternative approach to boosting your immunity and your cellular health.

• Vitamin B12 Injections

These injections can be used as a supplemental way to encourage total body wellness. Vitamin B12 can be used as an integrative therapeutic tool to help a wide variety of conditions.

The injection encourages the body to make red blood cells, improving oxygen circulation throughout the body. Vitamin B12 encourages your body to use carbohydrates and fat for the creation of energy and additional protein the body needs.

• Acupuncture

The treatment consists of fine needles being inserted into the skin, at varying depths. The placement of the needles, or acupoints, stimulate specific regions to produce specific physical responses. The thought is that physical stimulation will promote self-healing and bodily wellness.  

Once placed into the skin, the patient may feel a dull ache at the base of the needle. But acupuncture should never be painful. The dull ache will gently subside, leaving the individual in a relaxed state. In some practices, the steel needle may even be heated or stimulated as part of the treatment approach. 

• Infrared Sauna

An infrared sauna uses far-infrared light to create heat. Far-infrared light is the wavelength that most closely resembles the infrared heat given off by the human body. Because of the similarity, far-infrared light can enhance and strengthen our energy.

• Biomat

Amethyst biomats utilize their mineral component and heat to enhance the body’s vitality through far infrared rays and negative ions. Amethyst biomats can be used as treatments for chronic pain, injury, and overall wellness.

• Lymphatic Therapies

Lymphatic enhancement therapy (LET) utilizes electronic instruments to improve circulation and restore lymphatic flow and function. The therapeutic tools use the vibration of light and sound to promote healthy lymphatic tissue and immunity.

• Detox Programs

We teach our patients what good nutrition is and how it can affect their lives for the better. We have a nutritionist on staff to help teach our patients how to prepare food with maximum health benefits. We offer a variety of health, wellness and nutrition classes on-site
