At Theta Wellness Center located in Sandy, Utah, we focus on assisting with behavioral disorders using the latest technology for innovative neurological services that are safe for patients of all ages – including adults and children. One of the behavioral services we provide is helping people manage their obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

This condition causes a pattern of unwanted and repetitive thoughts, feelings, actions, ideas, and urges driving you to repeatedly act on that fear and impulse. At the least, it can make you feel as though the impulse is controlling you, but in the extreme, it can interfere with your day-to-day routine and social or work function.

OCD typically manifests in the teen or young adult years and can be caused by a history of abuse, either physical or sexual, family history (genetic), an injury to the head, brain abnormalities, or even infection. You might have OCD if you find yourself doing the following:

– Repeating a particular action incessantly (counting, washing your hands or body repeatedly, or checking doors or lights), making it almost ritualistic.
– Being overly afraid of germs
– Relentlessly focusing on organization and creating order.
– Uncontrollable thoughts about religion (praying over and over), or sex, or thinking about harming for yourself or others.
– Obsessing over something repeatedly.

Unlike conventional treatment for this disorder, we use methods that don’t just rely on counseling and medication. Our technology helps bring balance to brain chemicals and stimulates healthy levels of neurotransmitters. One of these methods is whole Body Light Stimulation℠. Along with physical disorders, this light therapy can assist with recovery from depression, anxiety, stress, addictions and behavioral disorders such as OCD.

This innovative service involves having the patient lie down on a tanning bed which uses infrared light to rejuvenate the cells and the body naturally to help you feel better. By producing red light therapy and infrared therapy our Whole Body Light Stimulation℠ bed bathes your body in a soothing light bath. It helps detoxify your body and improves metabolic rate leaving you feeling rejuvenated.

If you or someone you love is struggling with OCD, we invite you to give us a call today to learn more about our whole-body service options.

We look forward to providing you with natural therapies for whole body wellness.
