Even though MicroCurrent Neurofeedback (MCN) is probably best known for its ability to relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression and to reduce inflammation contributing to pain and chronic fatigue, it is perhaps not as widely appreciated that it has been shown that MCN enhances cognitive function, executive function and athletic performance as well.
State of Stress Can Adversely Affect Performance in Many Ways
The presence of a heightened state of stress from the autonomic nervous or “fight or flight” brain center can lead to loss of focus, poor quality sleep and general brain dysfunction that can adversely affect performance in many ways. By restoring parasympathetic calm to the “threat center” in the brain, performance can be enhanced.
Professionals report to us that after a series of sessions with Cranial Electrical Stimulation (CES), they often notice enhanced creativity, reduced performance anxiety and an overall reduction of anxiety associated with the demands of leadership.
When our therapists talk to guests receiving MCN treatments, they often hear about students who perform much better on tests and presentations with less performance anxiety. It is also not uncommon for golfers to tell us that their scores have improved with sessions of MCN.
MicroCurrent Neurofeedback which is also known by a number of other names including Cranial Electrical Stimulation or CES, Transcranial Electrical Stimulation or TES, Low Intensity Pulsation Transcranial Electrical Stimulation or LIPTES, MicroCurrent Brain Stimulation, and Passive MicroCurrent Stimulation.
Wally Taylor MD has been treating chronic illness for over 45 years. For the past 25 years he has utilized functional medicine techniques concentrating on environmental toxins and life stresses as the underlying root causes of illness. In recent years he has focused, especially, on the role of the threat response of the autonomic nervous system as the inciting stimulus of all chronic illness. His understanding of the role of microcurrent cranial stimulation to reset the brain’s sympathetic threat response to a parasympathetic state of calm and tranquility has become fundamental to his ability to help individuals overcome chronic illness and disability. He has also experienced repeatedly that brains that are “stuck” in “fight or flight” cause chronic illness and lead to poor performance in a wide range of life’s activities.
Together with Greg Evans from Alabama, Dr. Taylor founded Brain Well-Being in order to make the amazing healing modality of passive MicroCurrent neurofeedback, a form of Cranial Electrical Stimulation, as widely available to the public as possible.
