The answer to all of those questions requires looking at this from another perspective. NO works with all brains in spite of any diagnosis or goal that someone may have or think they have. When a brain is working more optimally, an individual is better able to function regardless of any specific label or concern the person may have. Often with training people forget they had concerns and no longer identify themselves by labels.
How Does NeurOptimal® Work?
What Happens In A Session?
In our spa-like offices, you will sit in a comfortable reclining chair in a quiet room. If you choose to rent a system, you decide where to have your session; NeurOptimal® systems are lightweight and portable, and you can run sessions indoors or outdoors, while traveling, or wherever else you have about 45 minutes to spare!
Before your session starts, two small sensors are placed on your scalp and a three small sensors are clipped to your ears. These sensors act as stethoscopes; no signal is introduced to the brain through the sensors. As the session starts, you will hear music play through headphones or speakers. You can watch relaxing geometric images or a movie of your choice, or you can close your eyes and just relax.
Much like a mirror that promotes self-correction, NeurOptimal®’s propriety neurofeedback program monitors your brain activity and then provides feedback to your central nervous system about what it has just done. When the software detects shifts in your brain’s electrical activity, it sends an audible signal that invites the brain to observe its own activity. NeurOptimal® does not artificially “push” the brain in any specific direction; rather, it allows your brain to use the information (feedback) provided during a session to optimize itself. The feedback sounds like “skips” or interruptions in the music, and your brain recognizes that these interruptions are directly correlated to its own activity.
That’s it! It’s that simple. A NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training session is relaxing and enjoyable. At the end of a session, most clients feel calm and relaxed.
Why Should I Use NeurOptimal®?
NeurOptimal® training for the brain is like physical training for the body; it is a tool for self-empowered mental fitness that promotes flexibility, resilience and improved mental acuity.
NeurOptimal® is effective because it is designed to work best with your individual brain. It does not attempt to “fix” predetermined conditions or pin down specific problems. This is a limitation in many other neurofeedback systems where often solving a problem in one area could cause problems elsewhere. The heart of the NeurOptimal® system – Dynamical Neurofeedback® – is a proprietary technology based in neuroscience and specifically designed with the naturally non-linear function of the human brain in mind. NeurOptimal® is built to harness the incredibly dynamic nature of your brain in a way other systems simply cannot match.
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is completely safe. Research shows your own brain “knows best” and therefore the NeurOptimal® brain training system does not force or “push” the brain in any one direction. Basically, Dynamical Neurofeedback® provides your brain with the information it needs to adjust itself and function at its most optimal.
NeurOptimal® requires no effort on the user’s part. Some brain training systems require the user to “interact” by playing games or solving puzzles during sessions. This additional level of interaction is unnecessary with the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system. During a training session, you can simply relax and enjoy!
Because NeurOptimal® is fully automated and requires no expertise on the part of the trainer, anyone can easily run sessions safely and successfully. We recommend NeurOptimal® for home use, and we encourage family members of all ages to train.
