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.

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be worsened by physical or mental activity. Symptoms affect several body systems and may include:

  • weakness
  • muscle pain
  • impaired memory and/or mental concentration
  • depression
  • insomnia, which can result in reduced participation in daily activities [1]

In Western medicine, there is no known cure. Symptoms are treated with medications like antidepressants and tranquilizers depending on the individual patient’s unique symptom presentation. Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs help relieve muscle and joint aches that often accompany CFS. Fibromyalgia syndrome and CFS are often overlapping conditions.
