A new mind fitness program that can train the brain to function optimally and help athletes, businessmen, musicians and students perform better and achieve their full potential in their chosen careers has been launched in the Philippines.
Neurofeedback is a reputable and scientifically proven computer-aided biofeedback technique that is used to train the brain to improve its function. It involves reading waves and analyzing its deviation from a database of standard healthy brain patterns. In areas where a deviation from the norm is detected, the correct brain wave pattern is fed back to the brain through a series of audio and even visual rewards. In time, the brain learns how to create these normative patterns, resulting to a more coherent communication between the different parts, thereby improving brain function. Simply put, Neurofeedback is brain exercise.
“Neurofeedback is a noninvasive procedure, so it is very safe and has no harmful side-effects. It is a holistic way for anyone who wishes to improve on his or her brain functions. Neurofeedback can slow down mental ageing for adults, can increase a child’s academic performance, and can also help treat brain disorders such as, but not limited to, autism," says Denise Celdran, managing director of Philippine Neurofeedback Center.
In a study published by The American Board of Sport Psychology written by D. Corydon Hammond, PhD, "Sport psychologists will find that Neurofeedback is a cutting-edge technology that holds potential for improving concentration and attention, lowering anxiety and disruptive mental chatter, and in assisting in the rehabilitation of effects from concussions and mild head injuries."
“Neurofeedback can help athletes achieve optimal performance in various sports. It enables them to do better in their game without the use of performance-enhancing drugs,” notes Celdran.
Neurofeedback can also give greater focus to businessmen who need that clarity for decision-making, as well as increase student activity and productivity through improving IQ and minimizing fear and anxiety. Meanwhile, musicians or performers can also benefit as it can calm performance anxieties and improve focus and memory.
Surviving and excelling in the proverbial rat race is a challenge for most individuals. By providing a means to achieve greater mental and physical well-being, Neurofeedback can release your untapped potential for a healthier and happier you.
The Philippine Neurofeedback Center is in partnership with Dr. Joseph Guan, founder and clinical director of the Brain Enhancement Center in Singapore. PNC is the first Neurofeedback center in the Philippines, located at The Medical Plaza Buillding on Amorsolo corner Dela Rosa Streets in Legazpi Village, Makati. PNC is also the exclusive distributor of Neurofeedback machines in the country.
