BFE 20th Meeting

Bio and neurofeedback are evidence based techniques which have proved their value with podium results.

“Some years ago, when I was still a serving military officer, I was made aware of the success biofeedback had in Canada in preparing our military athletes for the annual competitions of the International Confederation of Reserve Officers, a competition involving Reserve Force officers from thirty-four different nations. I know also that today biofeedback is used to help servicemen prepare for battle and to help wounded veterans in Canada and the United States overcome the effects of their injuries, as well as in the treatment of those with PTSD,” recalled General DeChastelain in a recent letter to the BFE.

It may not result in the life or death of military performance, but athletes know the pressure of performance and the pressure is relentless. The Olympics come every four years, after performing thousands of phenomenal athletic feats, only this one counts. One hundred plus athletes, only three podium rewards. Professional athletes travel continuously, sleep and eat in foreign beds and dining rooms, and only one team can win. Bio and Neurofeedback are evidence based techniques which have proved their value with podium results.

Sport professionals are invited to learn more about these techniques in two upcoming workshops:
