What is Neurofeedback (neuroptimal) ?

This form of neurofeedback is not a medical treatment, but instead is a training for the brain. It does not require diagnosis, but rather it dances micro-second by micro-second with your brain offering it the information it needs to re-organize itself. And when your brain does that, a whole lot of complaints drop away. You feel calmer, clearer, happier and able to function better in your life.

The brain has an inherent ability to self-correct when given the right information and NeurOptimal is designed to provide the brain with the information it needs to make its own adjustments. Inconsistency, or abrupt changes in electrical activity in the brain, undermines optimal functioning of the brain. The system detects these abrupt changes and informs the brain of these sudden shifts through interruptions in the sound you are listening to. These almost imperceptible pauses invite your central nervous system to pull away from this less-than-ideal path it was on. This happens over and over until the natural self-correction becomes your new normal and your brain functions more efficiently, effectively and comfortably. When this happens, you sleep better, are less stressed, can focus more easily and feel the joy of an easier life, despite the challenges you may face from the outside.

Training with NeurOptimal allows your brain — and you — to become more flexible, more resilient. And a better brain means a better life.

What happens in a session ?

You will sit in a comfortable armchair and simply relax. Two tiny sensors are applied to your scalp and earclips to your ears. These sensors allow the neurofeedback system to read the delicate electrical activity of your brain, much like an EKG reads your heart. You then listen to music, you can close your eyes and relax. Children sometimes like to play a quiet game or read a book. There are very brief pauses in the music indicating NeurOptimal is at work, invisibly guiding you through a complex mathematical dance during which the challenge to your brain is varied.

Despite the complexity “under the hood”, no effort is required from you during sessions, at all! Simply relax and enjoy the 33.5 minute session while your brain re-organizes itself.

Why use Neurofeedback ?

Some suggestions for its use are:

  • Wellness enhancement

  • Stress reduction

  • Academic and job enhancement

  • Athletic and sports training

  • Optimizing your intelligence with improved brain function

  • Preparation for testing: improved focus, attention and retention, reduction of test anxiety

  • As part of an anti-aging program

  • Enhancing creativity and awareness

  • Personal and spiritual development in individual and group settings

  • Enriching partner, family and work relationships

  • Group training in retreat settings

How many sessions ?

This depends partly upon your goals. If you are training to feel better quickly, you might decide after 10-12 sessions that you have made enough gains and stop. On the other hand, if you are looking for lasting changes, 20-30 sessions is a better ballpark. The good thing is you can stop at any time and always pick it up again later if you so choose. Any training you have done in the past will always serve you well should you do more sessions in the future — no session is ever wasted. For some however, training their brain is like training the body. They want to function at their best throughout their lifetime, and they like to maintain that best even when life presents its inevitable day to day knocks and bruises. After a period of initial training they continue with maybe monthly sessions to give their brain a regular opportunity to “defrag”. Or, like many of us, they just do a session when they feel they need it. But in the end, it is always up to you, because it is YOUR brain that is doing the training and it knows what it needs.
