Peak Performance Training
Reward your brainwaves using the principles of operant conditioning to create more balanced and optimized brainwave patterns based on your unique brainwave activity. Balance mood. Improve focus. Reduce stress and anxiety. Optimize performance in all areas of life.
Who's using Neurofeedback? To name just a few:
Military Special Forces
American, English, Canadian, Norwegian & Taiwanese Olympic Teams
NASA Astronaut Training Centers
The Pro Golf circuit
Formula 1 Teams
London's Royal College of Music
Italian World Cup Champions of 2006

In our office we have seen students who came in so that they can play better sports, however, as a happy consequence, hey started doing all of their homework without being told to do so! They began to excel not only in their sports performance, but because the brain was becoming more efficient and optimized, more flexible, the effects carried over into many other areas of their lives. We believe peak performance training can give your kid the academic advantage and resilience to stress necessary to help them focus and achieve in school.
NBA star Chris Kaman along with many Olympic Athletes, dancers, performers, and many different sports organizations including but not limited to the NFL and professional sports teams across various disciplines, are using neurofeedback to enhance their peak performance. In large part due to overwhelming scientific studies and evidence that show how neurofeedback can help athletes "get in the zone," to achieve a flow state where skill and intuition come together. Many who are using it are improving and winning. The Olympic committee in 2016 not only deemed the technology safe but determined that it did not constitute cheating for athletes using this technology to enhance their performance.
With neurofeedback we are compressing time and in less than two months, achieving results that adepts such as yogis experience only after many years of experience."

A study from Japan by Kasamatsu and Hirai with Zen monks measured brainwaves of beginner, intermediate and advanced meditators. They were able to distinguish brainwave patters that were distinct when compared to non-meditators.
Neurofeedback training has since been used to train non-meditators to achieve brainwaves similar to advanced Zen meditators.
World famous business guru Anthony Robbins recommends Neurofeedback for Peak Performance for business professionals. A lot of studies are coming forth illustrating how neurofeedback can help the corporate sectors in enhancing their leadership by increasing emotional intelligence and improving focus and stress management for better time management and overall performance.
The term "Authentic Happiness" was coined by psychologist Abraham Maslow. Martin Seligman pioneered positive psychology by using the scientific method to explore it. His conclusion on the topic was based on three dimensions.
1. Pleasant Life
2. The Good Life
3. Meaningful Life
Neurofeedback has been shown not only to elevate mood but to bring clarity. It is an incredible tool that could be used to enhance one's overall quality of life and be used to in the pursuit and realization of one's dreams and goals.
In addition to Neurofeedback, at the PHI Center we further enhance mental performance through Light Touch Techniques on Acupuncture Points that send blood and energy to, and stimulate metabolic processes in, your PFC (Pre-Frontal Cortex) - the "human" part of the brain that other animals do not have developed to the capacity humans do. It's what makes "higher thinking" possible. This part of the brain is responsible for planning, complex behaviors, and personality development.
Coupled with Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques, you can learn how to activate your PFC with a phrase that activates your breath.

The mind and body are inseparable. Each has a direct corresponding relationship to the other. What you eat, for example, affects your gut (which produces most of your neurostransmitters!) and in turn your brain. Consuming the right foods for your needs can balance out symptoms of ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression and make you more resilient to stress.
Likewise, having high levels of physical and emotional stress can in turn create an onset of disease, gastrointestinal and otherwise. It's a two way street. Better body equals better mind. Optimized mind means optimized body.
Another PHI Center core principle is POSTURE.
Better Posture allows you to breathe better by physically increasing lung capacity. The internal pressure generated by breath assists the cardiovascular system in pushing blood to the periphery and improving blood flow to the brain. The ability to maintain focus of your breath with good posture can ultimately change the brain. This has been proved in numerous EEG studies scanning the brain. In fact, prior to (and in addition to) neurofeedback technology, one of the best and most accessible ways people could change the structure and functions of their brains was through the use of meditation techniques to enhance their mind.
We work on correcting one's breathing patterns and teaching meditation styles and techniques as an adjunct to the neurofeedback we provide to create a very multimodal well-rounded approach to mental performance.
This includes but is not limited to addressing diet and lifestyle i.e. sleep hygiene, social relations, balancing circadian rhythms, ensuring proper hydration, supplementation, and proper self-care practices.
