If you devote much time to golf, or any other sport, you may have experienced from time to time the phenomena known as "the zone," when every movement turns out just right, and your brain works in perfect sync with your body. It's an exhilarating experience, but then comes the frustration of knowing that these flashes of brilliance are very elusive, and cannot be summoned at will"or can they?
If you follow the sports news, you may have heard about how the Italian soccer team impressed not only soccer fans, but also the world, with their 2006 World Cup win, after spending time in what became known as the "brain room." Among the techniques used in the brain room, helping the team to achieve this success, was neurofeedback therapy, which is a form of biofeedback that can actually change the way your brain functions.
Neurofeedback is being used by more and more athletes and leaders to enhance their ability to perform at a high level. Individuals seeking to improve their golf score are turning to neurofeedback training to improve their 'mental game' of golf.
Neurofeedback uses an EEG machine that reads brain waves, and after several sessions, may enable you to easily access the brain wave frequencies that are typical of that heightened state of creativity and proficiency also known as the "flow."
