“Concentration and mental toughness are the margins of victory.”
— Bill Russell
Elite competitors know what it takes to succeed in athletic performance. Reactions and decisions occur in milliseconds, and winning relies on both cognitive fitness and physical conditioning. You push your body to its limits, but true achievement requires the total package. Whether your sport requires quick decisions in competition, or deep internal focus during training, neurofeedback can help you find an extra performance edge.
Neurofeedback is backed by decades of scientific research. It promotes improved mental and physical performance by training your brain to balance its own wave patterns.
“What you’re thinking, what shape your mind is in,
is what makes the biggest difference of all.”
— Willie Mays
What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a proven method for helping you achieve optimal performance. We use cutting-edge technology to train your brain to regulate its wave patterns more effectively, so you can find your optimal performance zone.
How do we achieve this? First we do an assessment, which measures your brain activity at 19 different locations. Once we’ve analyzed the data, we train your brain to balance delta, theta, alpha, and beta waves in proportions that promote your best performance. This is done through a process called operant conditioning. Simply put, we reward your brain with audio or visual stimuli when it makes the desired adjustments. Often, the process feels very much like playing a video game.
We meet twice a week for hour-long computer-based training. Usually, protocols recommend 30-40 sessions. Once you learn these optimal performance skills, you don’t forget them.
Benefits from neurofeedback can include:
- Enhanced focus and attention
- Improved sleep
- Reduced anxiety
- Better mood
- Improved motivation
- The focus and control to reach your goals
“Among the top 100 players, physically there is not much difference…
It’s the mental ability to handle the pressure, to play well at the right moments.”
— Novak Djokovic
