Sports Peak

  1. STEP 1: Dedicate time to brain training. If you need 5 day to train your body.  Do like wise for your brain training or do not begin at all. 
  2. STEP 2:  QEEG
  3. STEP 3a:  Accelerate brain amplitude training with Thinkfast photobiomodulation (home device).  This is important, not only because 810nm near NIR increases mitochondria and reduces inflammation.  Its a home use device that saves travel time and can be used at home.  
  4. STEP 3b:  ISF NEUROFEEBACK with therapist.  (A therapist is required to synchronise your brain waves).
STEP 3A & 3B can be concurrenty or independently.  

Thinkfast Photobiomodulation is a device that improves sleep, reduces anxiety,  improves memory, improves mobility.

Focus requires sleep, being calm & reducing the addiction to screen time.  This 17 year old  was able to cut medication from anxiety, improve sleep to win medals, reduce screen time and performing uch better in academics.

ISF Neurofeedback, a must for athletes

  • Achieve sports peak.
  • CAUTION: Chronic Trauma Encephalopathy (see below) (due to high impact sports like rugby, boxing, muay thai, MMA…  )

American, British, Canadian, Chinese olympic athletes, London School of  Music, AC Milan, Chelsea Soccer teams.  Ski  Champ Hermann Maier & Tennis champ Marie Price.  NASA astronaut: Dave Williams, Student from Raffles Institution.

Optimal brain waves is a must for all top athletes.  Neurofeedback trains the brain, which in turn improves an athlete’s ability to perform without anxiety to improve alertness and mental acuity.  More professional athletes today use neurofeedback to achieve better results to achieve peak performances, while retired athletes needed neurofeedback to rewire their neuro networks to correct the damage caused by high impact sports.

Chronic Trauma Encephalopathy (CTE) was coined by Dr. Bennett Omalu, previously called punch drunk syndrome by Dr. Harrison Martland.

Post concussion scans may show athletes brains were ok but many high impact athletes felt something was not right, and many ended in suicides.  When you need an electrician why call a plumber.  A quantitative electroencephalogram QEEG is a correct type of scan that will detect symptoms characteristic of  CTE.  If slapping, punching, kicking, accidents causes explosive cognitive impact to the head and can upset or injure you, continuous impacts can alter your cognitive processes permanently.  Why?  Your frequency have been scrambled by that impact.  Loss of sleep, migraines, lack of focus studying or at work, mood changes, memory, paralysis, deafness, speech motor skills.  A qeeg will  be able to record, interprets brain wave electrical activities and tell how that impact affected the person.  Now, lets fix it.  Infraslow fluctuation neurofeedback therapy will help to tune that frequency back to a much better state or clarity or syncronise what was damaged by high impact sports.

An added acceleration would be to add therapeutic thai massage around the head neck shoulder areas to facilitate happy vagus nerves.  After  all its like the highway to the body.  Thai massage is excellent prior to a competition or after one.
