Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this provides only temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety.


  • Obsessions or compulsions that are not due to medical illness or drug use

  • Obsessions or compulsions that cause major distress or interfere with everyday life

There are many types of obsessions and compulsions. One example is an excessive fear of germs and the compulsion to repeatedly wash the hands to ward off infection.

The person usually recognizes that the behavior is excessive or unreasonable.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and BrainTek make good partners for treatment. BrainTek's entrainment program uses a series of assessments to determine how the brain is processing compulsive behaviors.  We then teach the client how to manage their brain.  This is accomplished through brain-based exercises, video games, and a series of virtual-reality, total-immersion interactive games and audio entrainment, all done in a relaxing environment..
