Did you know you can train your brain to develop a skill much in the same way you can train your body to develop a skill? Think back to when you learned how to ride a bike. At first, it probably felt completely foreign to your body. But over time, the more you practiced, your body slowly became used to the feeling of pedaling, keeping your balance, directing the bike, and paying attention to your surroundings. You naturally developed the muscles, coordination, and rhythm needed to stay on the bike. Eventually, it became a habit. It’s actually a very similar process when you are teaching your brain to do something like getting calm, focusing, and regulating your emotions — you have to train it.
Have you ever been anxious and wished you could calm yourself down? Or have there been times when no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn’t concentrate? NeuroFit is wellness training for your brain, based on the scientific principle of neuroplasticity, which is the ability to learn new habits and form new connections. It’s a way to change your cognitive processing and emotional regulation so you can train yourself to shift from a stressed state to a relaxed one, or a foggy brain state to one that is focused and highly motivated. In this webinar, licensed neurotherapist Ashley Wiegand explains what NeuroFit is, how it works, and who may benefit from receiving this new wellness therapy available at PALM.
It turns out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Not only that, but it’s good for your brain. Remember those piano lessons you took as a kid? Memorizing verb conjugations in Spanish? Volunteering at a food pantry? Believe it or not, revisiting some of those long-lost interests or finding similar ones later in life can actually rewire your brain to become healthier and prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Is your child having problems with focus, attention, stress, anxiety, or school performance? PALM Health has a neurofeedback package specially designed to help children and families address these symptoms. Neurofeedback, or “brain training,” is a learning therapy that measures brainwaves, then provides performance-based feedback to improve various brain functions such as attention. The virtual package includes your choice of all-virtual sessions or a combination of in-person and virtual sessions, as well as two months of remote neurofeedback software and equipment rental.
