The benefits of brain training are measured by the events and stressors of our daily lives. People who “Brain train” the say they feel better able to concentrate and focus on tasks, and that they feel more prepared to deal with life’s unexpected situations. Individuals who train using Neuroptimal find it easier to handle situations that had always been a systematic source of tension. Some people who have done brain training report a greater amount of creativity, awareness and an increased ability to prioritize issues or challenges in a more meaningful and productive way. Serenity, confidence, resilience, clarity, awareness—these are what people report experiencing.
To name a few…NeurOptimal® has no side effects. NeurOptimal® unlike traditional neurofeedback does not require a diagnosis. With NeurOptimal® technology there is no expensive brain mapping (QEEG) or extensive review of medical charts.
Yes. NeurOptimal® is impressively effective, non-invasive and completely safe. This means that the brain isn’t forced to change how it functions—it is simply alerted in real time by the interruption in the music or dialogue in a movie. The NeurOptimal® coach doesn’t intervene during the session however the feedback allows the brain to make corrections in real time allowing for improved nervous system functioning and overall mental health balance.
No. This is what makes NeurOptimal® neurofeedback so enjoyable: you just need to sit back and relax or sleep during a session. You’re not expected to actively carry out any particular physical or mental exercise. When you train with NeurOptimal®, you’re invited to let go, and to explore new possibilities.
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback® training is cumulative. In other words, the brain continues to learn how to function better with each passing session. Once this learning has become solidly anchored in the brain, and the results indeed are lasting. However, as with any type of training, you might start to feel “rusty” after not having had a session for a while. When this happens, it will only take a few “tune-ups” for the brain to get back to its most optimal level.
Since each brain is different, it’s impossible to know exactly how many sessions will be necessary for any given person. Like at a gym for the body, the number of workouts you do depends on your body and your desired results. Typically Most individuals notice a significant difference between 6 and 12 sessions. 15-20 sessions are optimal depending on your goals.
At the first session, you’ll have a chance to define your own objectives through subjective checklists given to you by your provider. This information will help to determine how effective the training is for you throughout the brain-training process. After each session, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss the positive changes that you’re noticing.
No. For those of you who have come across an assessment process known as QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) that is often used with neurofeedback, there is no need for this tool when using NeurOptimal®. That’s a substantial cost savings for you. The QEEG is used to establish protocols for training. With Neuroptimal your CNS (central nervous system) will incorporate the training in the way that is right for you. There is no guesswork involved.
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, safe method for restoring serenity, confidence and wellness back into your life by working with your brain imbalances which are basically the source of an unharmonized life. Your brain already possesses everything you need for an exceptional quality of life. NeurOptimal® helps draw out this untapped potential to make “the good life” a reality. With NeurOptimal® sessions, over time, the brain learns to maneuver around instabilities — instead of just falling into them — resulting in increased flexibility and resilience, which results in a better quality of life for the client.
Provide a multitude of benefits for the brain and body, including: improved sleep, heightened mental clarity, enhanced cognitive performance, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, Autism, TBI ETC… In fact, the American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback aka EEG biofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD. Furthermore, the APA has equated neurofeedback with medication in terms of efficacy for resolving ADHD.
While more and more insurance companies are considering the advantages of alternative therapies, this technology is not generally covered yet; however, we encourage you to check with your insurance as they are always making new considerations for different types of alternative therapies.
