NEUROFEEDBACK AND PEAK PERFORMANCE

 

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.

 

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

Will Durant on Aristotle

High performers such as business leaders, professional athletes or artists constantly seek to increase standards of performance in their respective fields. Each discipline requires specific skills but resilience and flexibility of neuronal circuitries are common to all high performers. For a high performer, the key difference is the power of concentration and emotional self-control in high-pressure situations.

 

Just like a muscle, the brain can be exercised to increase performance.  An efficient brain can accomplish more, with greater accuracy, in less time.  Modern neuroscience has identified the essential qEEG elements common to peak performance (such as connectivity, coherence, brainwave phase metrics, etc.) and translated these scientific concepts into effective neurofeedback protocols.

The foundation of peak performance is the brain's ability to control attention, thoughts, and emotions.

A personalized training program is key in achieving a state where more efficient use of brain resources or strengthening specific neural connections results in peak performance.  Stress resilience, stress recovery, and improved sleep quality are always part of a successful peak performance program, and these can be supported by other life changes such as nutrition and exercise.

 

Neurofeedback is increasingly popular in professional sports and the business community. For business leaders and busy professionals, greater efficiency results in less mental energy wasted in keeping composure, over-analyzing, and maintaining emotional control.  Relaxation becomes possible in the middle of a busy day or a high-pressure meeting simply because brain resources are allocated where they belong. Artists and athletes use neurofeedback to sustain being ‘in the zone’, or ‘being in the moment’, a state of heightened awareness where energies are focused on the task at hand and fewer errors are likely from second-guessing and over-thinking.

 

We believe that achieving optimal brain training results in a state of well-being and inner happiness for the individual. We support you in achieving realistic goals and directing your motivation and energies towards balance. The most successful peak performers have succeeded in removing inner psychological obstacles due to past trauma or negative habits.  We offer a meditative and contemplative program to support this aspect of your personal development.
