If something differs in HEALTHING it is in the integral treatment of the patient. This 2019 come back to surprise us by integrating among its services a novel treatment called NEUROFEEDBACK, used for the improvement of different aspects of our state of health in general, and highlighting its use for athletes.
The past 5 of June we could go to its facilities of the commercial center ABC Serrano from Madrid to attend the presentation of this new neuro-behavioral therapy that helps to learn to control the patterns of brain activity and apply it to daily life.
Brain activity manifests in waves and can be measured by computerized techniques of neuroimaging and neurophysiology, in such a way that the waves emitted are projected on the screen.
We find different types of waves:
- Alfa: located in the occipital lobe, back of the head; they are a sign of rest, of relaxation.
- Beta: they manifest themselves in a state of alert, of action.
- Delta: deep rest, meditation.
- Theta: vigil, creativity, motivation, fantasy, inspiration.
How does it work?
The sessions are monitored by a therapist, that by placement of electrodes that puts on the head, to capture the waves, which will be collected on a screen.
If some kind of imbalance is found, there are waves that manifest themselves in excess or others that do not appear at all.
Is a harmless and non-invasive technique, and in its application it seems to be playing a videogame. The therapist tells the patient how he is going, so that he can correct and vary his activity to reach the goal. This therapy can be applied even watching videos, movies or other type of visual stimulus
Being a gradual learning, we recommend a minimum of 10 sessions to reach satisfactory results.
The objective is based on the "Operant Conditioning", that is, to give information to the person of how his brain works, so that he can at the moment that he requires it, for example, when starting a task, to have a self-control and self- regulation of attention and concentration levels.
In the presentation we were able to hear the testimony of two elite athletes, Sebi García and Mariyán Asanov, who told us about their experience with therapy.
The most notorious case that they commented to us was the use of this therapy by the professional tennis player Roger Federer for many years, which counts in his palmares 20 individual titles in Grand Slam.
For both, it has been a before and after, since in addition to improving their habits of daily life, having more concentration in their work and sports, has helped them to perform at the highest level as the case of Asanov, obtaining the title of World Champion after having retired
