Why Use NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback® ?

NeurOptimal®  will get you functioning at your best!

A non-invasive approach to feeling and functioning at your best, NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback® is used by peak performance athletes, artists and business people, as well as individuals, including children, who want mental, physical or emotional improvement.

Many NeurOptimal® users report life-changing results. Elite athletes have used NeurOptimal®, reporting improvement in their physical performance and mental stamina. Sufferers of sleeplessness report improved sleep. Veterans use it stating it helps relieve the extreme challenges they face returning home from a war zone. Mentally clouded individuals, due to injury or life circumstances, tell us how after using NeurOptimal® they’ve rediscovered clarity to an extent they and their loved ones once believed unattainable. Brain training with NeurOptimal® has helped improve the lives of children suffering from communication and social challenges, and general difficulties focusing in school.  And many challenges stemming from stress commonly fall away when the brain is trained for optimal function.

Some suggestions for its use are:

  • -Wellness enhancement
  • -Stress reduction
  • -Preparation for testing: improved focus, attention and retention, reduction of test anxiety
  • -Academic and job enhancement
  • -Athletic and sports training
  • -As part of an anti-aging program
  • -Enhancing creativity and awareness
  • -Facilitating return of veterans into home and work life
  • -Enriching family and work relationships.

What is NeurOptimal® and how does it work?

It is a safe and effective computer-based program that mathematically mirrors, through auditory and visual feedback, what the brain is doing moment by moment so that it may renormalize itself.

It does this by detecting and monitoring changes in cortical patterns and mirroring the brain activity which may be undermining optimal functioning.

Just as standing in front of mirror encourages you to adjust your posture or your hair, receiving the feedback of the NeurOptimal® system causes the brain to self-correct and make its own adjustments. This happens over and over until the optimal state becomes your new way of functioning.

What Happens in a Brain Training Session?

During a NeurOptimal® training session, you wear two tiny sensors on your head and ear clips on your ears that provide feedback on your Central Nervous System. You sit in a comfortable chair and listen to music while watching a ever-changing visual display, although you can close your eyes and relax if you like. Children sometimes play a quiet game or read a book. After a 33.5 min. session you feel refreshed, relaxed and in a higher state of mental alertness and flow.

Because  NeurOptimal® is “dynamical”, meaning it provides highly-individualized training, it is effective.

Because people have trained for over 3 million hours world-wide, the system is time-tested.

Because it is non-invasive, it is safe.

Further Information

Be aware that while there are other forms of neurofeedback, NeurOptimal® is the only form that responds to the entire central nervous system.
