The Brain Performance Center

Comments

This brought me joy - hope it does to you as well.
I first heard about the Brain Performance Center from a friend of mine that worked with the office about 3 years ago. She mentioned that Dr. Leigh, Sally and Bismark had a huge impact on her sons life changing him from a 13 year old boy that was angry, us engaged and gave one word answers to a boy that was affectionate, very engaged and was interested in talking with people after three months or so of treatment sessions twice a week. She felt that they were very focused on her sons well being.

I am currently in a similar situation with my 13 year old son and she introduced me to neurofeedback which I had never heard of before. The next day I went online and found a practitioner in New England that did neurofeedback. He had a slightly different approach than what had been used with my friends son so I had some questions about both neurofeedback and some of the differences. My friend immediately reached out to Sally to let the office know I'd be calling. I called the next day and spoke to Bismark and found out that Dr. Leigh was out of the country on vacation that week. I explained to him my sons situation and the fact that I had started sessions in New England but I had some questions. I was blown away when he offered and contacted Dr. Leigh and she agreed to speak to me that afternoon! Dr. Leigh spent 30 minutes on the phone with me and shared some insights on neurofeedback and some key questions to ask. She also asked me to follow up with her when she returned from her vacation- which I did. She even took a look at a report my practitioner put together detailing his initial evaluation on my son. Wanted to pass along that I was impressed with her passion around what she does and her willingness to take time with me. I told her that there is a small chance that my family may be relocating to the Dallas area in a few months and if we do- we'll definitely be working with her.

“Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement.”
- Aldous Huxley, The Art of Seeing

Move your body; change the way your brain sees things. Movement impacts brain derived neurotrophic factor and brings oxygen to the prefrontal cortex.

Spend some time moving this weekend. Your brain will thank you!

Chronic pain is oftentimes hard to diagnose and usually is treated with medication But pain lives in the brain.

While treating the brain can reduce the pain in the body, studies show that pain can also affect a person’s memory and concentration.

Mid-week check-in: How are you doing? It is so easy to get caught up in automatic negative thoughts (ANTs) but you can take action to catch those ANTs!

First, ask where they are coming from. What is causing you to go to the negative! I have two friends - Shoulds and Musts. When I don’t do what they tell me to do, it leaves me feeling shame and guilt. So acknowledging that I’m relying too much on the Shoulds and Musts is one step forward.

The second tool is to replace the negative with the positive. I love having affirmations. Even something as simple as “I’m doing the best I can with what I have” is a grounding statement to make that helps to center me.

Take time to check in with yourself today. It makes a huge difference!

Did you know 👉🏼 There’s a relationship between your brain and self-confidence.

Your brain starts recording impressions early on in life via the subconscious. It isn’t looking for accuracy, it’s picking up on subtle clues through the five senses. That impression that the subconscious recorded lives inside the mind.

So when it comes to confidence, it’s important to look at the subconscious and find out what your brain is holding on to.
