How athletes can benefit from neurophysiological training ?
DO YOU NEED HELP FOR WINNING?
Do you need help for body control, speed, accuracy,
sustainability, concentration, game reading and winning?
NeuroFysCoaching NFC, Neurophysiological Sports Training can help
Neurophysiological training for sport, NeuroFysCoaching (NFC) gives the new important element to sport training, improved nervous activation and organization bringing better concentration, reduced neural stress and helping to win.
Today, in sports training, everyone has, in principle, high quality coaches, a good muscle tone and a lot of genre-type training. Despite this, athletes may find it difficult to achieve best results in important competitions. He might face sudden unpredictable coordination problems in the final race, he might have problems with the stress tolerance and concentration and makes mistakes and loose the game. It is often said that the "head can not stand" or that the excitement has spoiled the performance. The New NeuroFysCoaching is available for this situations.
All senses are carefully studied and subjected to specific training.
First we make a neurophysiologic assessment, and with help of it a personal exercise program is designed. In the assessment the following areas are looked:
• Reflexes, both primitive and adult reflexes
• Balance and coordination
• The visual sytem
• The sense of touch
• The auditory system
• Sports history, performance profile, etc.
Background studies include interviews with parents, interviews with previous and current coaches.
Based on the assessments and interviews, an individual training program is designed to improve the functioning and integration of sensory and the reflex systems.
Training is also directed to a involuntary systems, who are often coursing many kind of mystical problems, increasing stress and worsening ability to concentrate.
Training should be done daily bases and training sessions takes about 20 min/day. A control assessments should be carried out in about 2 month’s intervals.
The objective of the program is to create better brain organization, quicker reactions, better decisions making ability and better conditions for sports performance.
As an added bonus, learning ability and social interaction can be improved.
Possible effects of Neurophysiological Sports Training:
Better Body control
Shorter reaction time
Better nervous activity and organization will improve and speed up automatic reactions and eliminate performance-disrupting factors.
For example improved concentration ability, proper functioning of the reflex system, and better and quicker visual perception.
Better nervous organization consumes less energy and gives more physical durability.
Stress tolerance increases
When the sensory system is working better the background stress will be lower and the stress tolerance increases.
Improving concentration ability.
Sharper sensory system and better stress tolerance improves ability to concentrate.
Better "game reading"
Better neural organization and improved synaptic systems in the brain improves faster analysis of changing situations in the came and helps athlete react faster and better in the playing field.
Help in winning
The athlete who has all above mentioned maters solved generally wins.
How does NeuroFysCoaching differ from medical methods?
Medical training tools rely usually on medicines, and these either stimulates the brain, increase muscle mass (steroids) or increase oxygen uptake (e.g. asthma medicines or ways of improving blood oxygenation in take). Most of these are forbidden but unfortunately used.
NeuroFysCoaching is completely non-medical methodology. It is based on the brain training and it is using the methods of increasing the synaptic contacts and possibility to build all new neural pathways or better working organization in the brain.
With these methods it is also possible to inhibit the uninhibited disturbing so called baby reflexes, what can maintain the high neural stress, overactivation in sensory systems or they can cause increased stress in the most demanding competitive situations.

Where does NeuroFysCoaching (NFC) come from?
I studied the methods of neurophysiologic rehabilitation in both the European and the US.
I worked first mainly with the learning difficulties of children, young people and adults, but I also treated athletes and musicians. It was wonderful to see the effects of training both for athletes and musicians. How stresses decreased and performance improved.
Who were our teachers?
One of the important developer in the field of sports training was Dr Harry Wachs (the Vision & Conceptual Development Center, Washington DC), which had successfully helped sports athletes in the US and the US Olympic Committee even recommended these "new" methods for use.
In Europe my very important teacher was among others. psychologist Peter Blythe, involuntary reflex system, (INPP, UK), Dr. Kjeld Johanssen, auditory system (Danmark) and Håkan Carlsson ( Sweden).
In Finland I have studied hearing researcher studies in University of Applied Sceences, Helsinki
I have worked as therapist and teach professionals to use neurophysiological methods in their therapy work. I also teach the teachers to use the specific methodology (named Sensomoottori) what is designed to be used in schools and kindergartens.
