Neurofeedback is effectively used to enhance performance. Peak performance is an easily recognized mental state where one is both focused and present.
Focus and emotional balance is the key to performance in all areas. Neurofeedback trains your brain to function more efficiently, improving mental functioning and emotional stability.
