Neurofeedback Brain Training for Achieving Peak Performance

Neurofeedback Brain Training for Achieving Peak Performance

neurofeedback for sports performancePeak performance has become a buzzword these days, as anyone from high end athletes to CEO’s can tell you. We modify our intake of food, substances or supplements, and implement other practices that we hope will lead to an increase in our work productivity, or possibly trim a few swings off our golf game.

Neurofeedback brain training is a method for achieving peak performance- changes in the brain translate to changes in physical performance. It starts with an EEG brain map to assess areas of your brain that need “tuning”. After neurofeedback sessions begin, your objective progress is measured by subsequent EEGs. Subjective changes are noted in terms of work or athletic productivity, psychological and perceptive changes, even fine motor control or balance.

Sports performance is proving to be a major application of the neurofeedback. In one study, entitled “Brain-training for physical performance: a study of EEG-neurofeedback and alpha relaxation training in athletes“, a group trained with neurofeedback “exhibited greater reduction of reaction times in a test of visual attention than the control group and showed improvement in several performance measures”.[1] Neurofeedback can enhance of concentration and attention, reduce anxiety, improve control over negative emotions, and to improve physical balance.

In one published case study, an Olympic athlete who has lost his performance confidence after an injury underwent 4 sessions of neurotherapy. Dramatic and statistically significant changes were observed in the patient.[2]

In the area of the performing arts, professionally significant enhancement of music and dance performance and mood has followed training with an EEG-neurofeedback protocol. [3]

A “strong learning effect” was observed in regards to cognitive enhancement in a recent double- blind study on neurofeedback.

Neurofeedback has great potential for performance enhancement in many areas, including sports and cognitive performance. To get started enhancing your performance in life, come in and get a brain map, so we can develop a personalized treatment plan custom tailored to meet your performance goals.
