Peak Performance Training

New Mentality Peak Performance Training Program is specifically designed for athletes, business professionals, teachers, administrators and students that are looking to become more focused in the corporate world, during the academic day or sporting competition.

Performance anxiety is a combination of physiological over-arousal, tension and somatic symptoms, along with fear of failure, worry and dread that occur before or during competition or performance situations. With our innovative technology, our neurotherapist performs a neurophysiologic stress test, designed to measure heart rate variability, muscle tension, skin conductance and other physiological responses to gather a baseline of how the client’s body responds/reacts under pressure.

Our neurotherapist also performs what’s known as a “brain map” to begin to understand how the individual’s brain is functioning. With the neurophysiologic stress test, qEEG brain mapping information and a combination of other clinical assessments, the team at New Mentality can create a treatment program best suited to assist our client’s in mastering their physiological responses to stress and gaining confidence and control over their anxiety.

At New Mentality, we recognize that this group of individuals have the desire to be ranked as one of the most competitive in their fields. With our innovative technology and coaching, we provide you with the techniques of brain training based neurological and physiological programs to help you stay in your mental zone and come out on top. At New Mentality, we know that everyone needs an edge. Get your edge today!

Biofeedback is a learning process, in which individuals learn to modify their physiology for the purpose of improving physical, mental and emotional health.

 

Things that New Mentality can improve for Peak Performers:

  • Focus/Attention
  • Reaction Time (quicker, more accurate starts, adjustments without over correcting)
  • Recovery (rebound quickly from mistakes and failures)
  • Better decision making
  • Increase their confidence and consistency
  • Improved sleep quality (feel refreshed and well rested)

 

Biofeedback Assessments and test measures:

1. Neurophysiologic stress test– this allows us to see the athlete’s natural response to stressful situations and his/her ability to return to normal states when the stressing condition has ended. This is huge in peak performance because athletes need to be able to recover quickly after a mistake or during stressful situations.

2. Reaction Time assessment and training

1.CPT (Continuous Performance Testing)- we can combine reaction time data with EEG and physiology (mind-body connection). This allows an in depth analysis of mind and body activity during sports reaction time training.

3. Biofeedback Training

a- EMG biofeedback- provides feedback on muscle tension. This type of biofeedback work well for people with anxiety, stress and/or chronic pain.

b- HRV biofeedback-  trains people to change the variability and dominant rhythms of their heart activity.

c- Thermal biofeedback- this type of biofeedback uses a person’s temperature to assess the person’s physical state. A drop in hand temperature can be indicative of a person being stressed and tense. Training an individual to control their body temperature can be essential in peak performance training.

d- EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback)- is a form of biofeedback, that enables better brain functioning in the same way that appropriate physical exercise strengthens the body. Neurofeedback is the direct training of the brain, where one is able to monitor their own brain activity on a computer screen and then learn how to produce brainwave activity that promotes healthy brain function.

4. qEEG Brain Mapping– quantitative EEG gives our board certified provider an idea of how the athletes brain is performing. It allows us to see what areas can improve and benefit from neurofeedback training.

5. Coaching– this component of the program brings together the mind/body techniques learned through training. This teaches the athlete how to use and harness the new skills learned.

Performance and Test Anxiety Program

New Mentality Performance and Test Anxiety Program is designed to help elementary, middle school, high school, college students and adults mentally prepare for any big sporting event, test or presentation.

Child ADD/ADHD

New Mentality Children Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Program

Designed to treat and improve the lives of children that have been diagnosed or have symptoms of ADD or ADHD, without the use of medication.
The New Mentality ADD/ADHD program has been developed to help children improve their focus, inattention and possible hyperactivity and/or impulsive behaviors at school, home, or wherever their attention may be required and/or demanded.

What is ADHD

ADHD, also known as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children and also affecting many adults.

What causes ADHD?

Researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and across the country are studying the causes of ADHD. Current research suggests ADHD may be caused by interactions between genes and environmental or non-genetic factors. Like many other illnesses, a number of factors may contribute to ADHD such as:

  • Genes
  • Cigarette smoking, alcohol use, or drug use during pregnancy
  • Exposure to environmental toxins, such as high levels of lead, at a young age
  • Low birth weight
  • Brain injuries

 

What causes ADHD and how to treat it without medication

 

Symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Inattention (not being able to keep focus)
  • Hyperactivity (excessive movement that is not fitting to the setting)
  • Impulsivity (quick acts that occur at the moment without thought)

How is ADHD diagnosed?

Is it hard for your child to pay attention? Do you see on him the need to move constantly during times when he shouldn’t? Do you notice him/her constantly interrupting others? If these issues are ongoing and you feel that they are negatively impacting your child’s life, it could be a sign of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

If you think your child has ADHD, make an appointment with your child’s doctor or a mental health professional in order for the professional to gather more information.  Many kids with ADHD also have learning problems, oppositional and defiant behaviors, or mood and anxiety problems, so professional evaluation is necessary.

ADD/ADHD or attention-deficit/ hyperactivity affects almost 10% of U.S. children or close to 5 million children and adolescents from three to eighteen years of age. ADHD has many symptoms and can often be difficult to diagnose in younger children.

With our innovative technology, our neurotherapist can perform what’s known as a “brain map” to begin the assessment process and begin to understand how the individual’s brain is functioning. With that information and a combination of other clinical assessments, the team at New Mentality can create a treatment program best suited to assist in improving attention, focus, and performance.

ADHD has been proven by science to be based on brain functioning.  A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, impulse control and the ability to sit still.  ADHD can also cause anger outbursts, difficulty completing tasks, restlessness and the inability to socially engage or connect.

How We Can Help

New Mentality uses a clinically proven natural approach to treating ADHD: Neurofeedback is the number one alternative treatment for ADHD and is backed by more than 50 years of research.

At New Mentality we recognize that many children suffer from this attention disorder.  So, we make it fun for your child.  During each session our neurotherapist has the ability to watch your child’s brain waves from moment-to-moment and can provide immediate feedback and coaching on your child’s progress.

Our innovative technology is so fun that your child will be eager to come into New Mentality to get the ultimate brain training experience.  At New Mentality your child will play brain games, watch movies, listen to music all while the brain learns how to scientifically regulate itself.

We also provide parents with a list of foods that will help educate them on which foods that trigger ADD and ADHD symptoms.

Adult and Child Anxiety

New Mentality ANXIETY Disorder Program

Designed to treat and improve the lives of adults that have been diagnosed or have symptoms of ANXIETY, without the use of medication.
The New Mentality ANXIETY program has been developed to help adults improve anxiety symptoms in social situations, important events, daily routines, post-traumatic experiences or wherever experiences they feel limited, threatened, worried and/or constantly try to avoid.

What is Anxiety?

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure. “Knowing the difference between normal feelings of anxiety and an anxiety disorder requiring medical attention can help a person identify and treat the condition.

Not all anxiety is a medical condition. Our ancestors used it to survive and take decisions, anxiety is part of our survival response to danger. The medical condition surges when this reaction becomes irrational, overwhelming and out of proportion to the trigger that causes this reaction.

Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental disorders in the United States. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. The duration or severity of an anxious feeling can sometimes be out of proportion to the original trigger, or stressor. Physical symptoms, such as increased blood pressure and nausea, may also develop. These responses move beyond anxiety into an anxiety disorder. The APA describes a person with anxiety disorder as “having recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns.” Once anxiety reaches the stage of a disorder, it can interfere with daily function.

Anxiety disorders are the most common form of emotional disorder and can affect anyone at any age.  Women are more likely than men to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety Symptoms

Is your first day of school, going to a job interview, or giving a speech cause you to feel fearful and nervous? This may be normal but if your feelings of anxiety are extreme, last for longer than six months, and are interfering with your life, you may have an anxiety disorder.

In the case of an anxiety disorder, the feeling of fear may be with you all the time. It is intense and sometimes debilitating. This type of anxiety may cause you to stop doing things you enjoy. In extreme cases, it may prevent you from entering an elevator, crossing the street, or even leaving your home. If left untreated, the anxiety will keep getting worse.

Among possible symptoms of anxiety, you might feel out of control, may trigger irrational thinking and the feeling of disconnection between your mind and body. Other ways people experience anxiety include panic attacks, nightmares, and painful thoughts or memories that you can’t control. You may have a general feeling of fear and worry, or you may fear a specific place, event or an everyday situation.

Possible Mental Signs of Anxiety?

  • Worried or uneasy often
  • Constantly feel afraid or guarded even though you know there is no unusual danger or threat
  • Difficulty relaxing or truly quieting your mind

 

What causes ANXIETY and how to treat it without medication

 

Possible Physical Signs of Anxiety?

  • Heart palpitations
  • Muscle weakness or tension
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomach aches or headaches

 

Nearly 40 million people in the United States experience an anxiety disorder in any given year. Only about one-third of those suffering from anxiety receive treatment.

Eight percent of children and teenagers experience an anxiety disorder with most people developing symptoms before the age of 21.

ANXIETY has been proven by science to be based on brain functioning.  A person with Anxiety has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect behavior, control of thoughts and daily life.

New Mentality uses a clinically proven natural approach to treating Anxiety: Biofeedback is the number one alternative treatment for Anxiety and is backed by more than 50 years of research.

A qEEG brain map which gives us a visual representation of how your brain is functioning and the areas that might be overactive or under-active.  Seeing and understanding your brain areas through brain mapping is important because it provides us information about what each area of the brain does, meaning its job or responsibility and how it uses speed or energy.

With the neurophysiologic stress test, qEEG brain mapping information and a combination of other clinical assessments, the team at New Mentality can create a treatment program best suited to assist our client’s in mastering their physiological responses to stress and gaining confidence and control over their anxiety.

What is PTSD?

PTSD, also known as post-traumatic stress disorder, is a psychological and emotional stress disorder that develops in response to a traumatic or life-threatening experiences, like war, assaults, accidents and natural disasters. Normally the respomnse of people who went through a traumatic event selfregulates and with self-0care get better. But if those symptoms last for months, years and affect your daily life, then you may have PTSD.

7,000,000 people in the United States suffer from PTS. 50% of people with PTS will never reach out for professional help. 70% of adults have experienced at least one traumatic life event. 20% of all adults who experience at least one traumatic event suffer from PTS.

PTSD Symptoms

PTSD symptoms are generally grouped into four types (Symptoms can vary over time or vary from person to person):

1.Reliving the event (re-experiencing symptoms)

  • Possible nightmares
  • Possibility of feeling like you are going through the even again. This is called a flashback.
  • Possibility of seeing, hearing, smelling something that causes you to relive the event. This is called a trigger

2. Avoiding situations that remind you of the event.

  • You may avoid crowds, because they feel dangerous
  • You may avoid driving or doing or going to places where event occurred
  • If you experienced a natural disaster, you may avoid watching movies about natural disasters
  • You may keep busy or avoid seeking help because it keeps you from having to talk or think about the event

3.Negative changes in beliefs and feelings

  • You may not have positive or loving feelings toward other people and may stay away from meaningful relationships
  • You may forget about parts of the traumatic event or not be able to talk about them
  • You may think the world is completely dangerous and no one can be trusted

4. Feeling keyed up (hyperarousal)

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Easily startled by a loud noise or surprise
  • Very aware of your surroundings and exits

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Affects People Emotionally and Physically

Emotional Symptoms

  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Sadness

Physical Symptoms

  • Tiredness
  • Increased perspiration
  • High or low blood pressure
  • Trouble digesting food

How is PTSD diagnosed?

If you have experienced a traumatic event and are noticing any of the above symptoms, make an appointment with your doctor or a mental health professional. There are many treatment options available that can provide relief from your symptoms.

How We Can Help

New Mentality uses a combined approach when treating trauma and PTSD. Clinical counseling along with qEEG brain mapping, biofeedback and neurofeedback are a possibility of recommendations. With our innovative technology, our team gathers information about your heart rate variability, muscle tension, skin temperature, brainwave activity and other physiological responses to get a baseline of how your brain and body are currently responding/reacting to stress and trauma.

Using neurofeedback as a treatment for PTSD has proven effective for relieving symptoms related to post-traumatic stress. We start with a qEEG brain map which gives us a visual representation of how your brain is functioning and the areas that might be over-active or under-active.  Seeing and understanding your brain areas through brain mapping is important because it provides us information about what each area of the brain does, meaning its job or responsibility and how it uses speed or energy. After we have completed your brain mapping assessment and a combination of clinical assessments, the team at New Mentality can create a treatment program best suited for you.
