Optimizing the human brain for peak performance. We feature a leader in this space with neurofeedback specialist, Angela Martinucci. Angela has her own story that led to her fascination with cutting-edge wellness technologies. And today she works with professional sports teams, athletes, the cancer community, and many more individuals seeking peak performance and wellness. Angela Martinucci is the Founder of Mind Balance and the co-owner of Bay Area Brain Spa — she joins this AthMindset podcast episode on SportsEpreneur.
In this AthMindset episode, Lisa Bonta Sumii, LCSW, CSW, shares space with Angela to discuss brain training, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback, Angela’s work with players in MLB (major league baseball), young athletes, Lisa’s role in working with athletes, and the stigma of mental health.
Angela Martinucci as described on her websites:
Mission: To provide transformative brain training programs that unlock peak performance in all aspects of life.
To achieve our mission of supporting you and/or your team in achieving optimal brain function and peak performance, we combine cutting-edge Neurofeedback Brain Training technology with customized Peak Performance Coaching. Together our brain fitness sessions and personalized coaching programs track your performance and support you in achieving your unique goals.
Angela Martinucci is a young breast cancer survivor who found NeurOptimal® neurofeedback when she was greatly suffering from collateral damage from cancer treatments and struggling to get her life back. Training with NeurOptimal® and optimizing her brain allowed her to find relief from the chemo brain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia that had been so debilitating. Angela was serving on the board of directors for a young survivors group in San Francisco, Bay Area Young Survivors (BAYS) when she discovered the benefits of neurofeedback. She found that other young women in her cancer community were also struggling with the same issues. She decided to pursue a new career in offering neurofeedback to others to help women in her community. Angela worked in an integrative oncology office in San Francisco for a few years and eventually opened her own storefront space for neurofeedback. For the past 6 years, she has been working in the peak performance and biohacking space. Her focus has been working with executives, professional athletes as well as individuals with rental equipment and onsite programs. She is a peak performance coach who blends neurofeedback with different coaching modalities to help her clients break through mental blocks and achieve their goals. She has always remained passionate about bringing neurofeedback to the cancer community. After seeing the immense impact that neurofeedback had on clients and that cost was sometimes a limiting factor, Angela had the vision to make neurofeedback accessible to all and to reduce suffering on a grand scale. She is beyond thrilled to see the vision come to life with the help of Carleigh Rochon and the new Bay Area Brain Spa.
