Have you ever wondered what is the difference between a good and a great athlete or performer? Many athletes or performers spend countless hours improving skills and working hard in lessons and practices to be their best.

Going to the Gym for Your Brain

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a non-invasive solution to increasing peak performance in a variety of settings.

Neurofeedback combines real-time display of brain activity with computerized brain mapping technology. The computer measures brain waves to produce a feedback signal to teach self-regulated brain function, rewarding desired behaviors.

The result is like going to the gym for the brain; it learns to function at optimal levels, increasing clients’ overall brain function. Our clients have experienced an increase in positive feelings and behaviors such as improved attention and focus.

What is Neurofeedback?

Your brain contains a complicated web of neural pathways that make it possible for all the different areas to communicate and work together. Scientists have estimated there are up to 30 billion messages being passed between your neurons every second. Even though that’s 80,000 times more than your average computer processor, it doesn’t mean your brain is always a master of efficiency. So even though you may practice and practice something, if your brain isn’t communicating and operating efficiently, it can hinder performance.

Who Can Benefit from Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback can benefit many individuals, but it is effective in helping serious athletes in any sport, business professionals and performers of dance, theater, music and more. Simply, it helps them achieve the next level of their craft.

What is the Process?

We create a map.

We get a map of the inside of your head using an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine, which requires nothing more than lying back in a comfortable chair for a bit. Using a database, we compare your map to those of the same age and gender to determine the regions of your brain that might be “in a rut.” Once we figure out which parts of your brain need to be optimized, sensors are placed on the corresponding areas of your head to track neural activity.

You watch a movie.

After you are comfortable, we start a movie of your choice. Through our program the movie only plays when the sensors detect that your brain is using the correct pathways. If your brain starts to slip back into its “rut,” the screen will slowly darken and fade.

Your brain does the work.

Your brain prefers to get the whole story rather than part of the story. Once the machine detects the right path is being used, your brain is rewarded with the bring the picture and movie back to full screen. Eventually your brain will learn using our intended pathways keeps the movie playing, and it will become the new path.

You don’t feel this process, in fact most clients say neurofeedback is quite simple and enjoyable.

How Long Does It Last?

Neurofeedback is not like a medication, it does not need continued dosing to be effective. The training is meant to be permanent once desired and optimal results are achieved. It is similar to learning to ride a bike, read music, or swim, once you know how, your brain doesn’t forget.

Benefits of Neurofeedback
Sports Performance

All competitive athletes know that the mental game is
just as important as the physical game. Mental Barriers to
performance can hinder or eliminate a talented athlete’s chances for
success.  Neurofeedback directly addresses the brain’s ability to function optimally, and many have found that it increases the depth and quality of sleep, improves focus, and undermines one-way, negative loops of thinking.

Artistic Performance
Whether it is on-stage, in rehearsals, or in auditions, an artist faces multiple challenging situations in which neurofeedback can be helpful. Whether it is reducing performance stress, increasing focus to help learn new skills, or function efficiently in competitive environments such as auditions, an increasing number of musicians, dancers, and actors are turning to neurofeedback to enhance both their on and off-stage performance.
Academic Performance

Academic success depends largely on a student’s ability to focus, retain information, process quickly and apply what has been learned. Many students suffer from poor memory, reading comprehension, test anxiety, or general executive function issues that interfere with academic testing and performance. Through both neuro and biofeedback, many of our clients have found their academic stride and have become their best selves in the classroom.

Executive Performance

Today’s fast paced, competitive corporate world demands that employees be able to multitask, focus, and assimilate vast quantities of information as well as stay calm under pressure. More and more people are turning to neurofeedback for the “edge” they have been looking for to maximize their on-the-job performance. Through helping the brain manage stress, improve sleep, and increase focus and memory, neurofeedback provides a unique solution to the challenges many employees face daily.
