NeurOptimal Neurofeedback is the ultimate naturopathic, drug free technology for peak performance, happiness and well being.
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback works by training the brain to be more flexible and resilient. This is done by it interacting with the brain and offering the brain the information it needs to function gracefully and release points of stuckness.
You can think of all of the things you do everyday as requiring different states of consciousness or awareness, from being alert and focused all the way to being asleep. Great flexibility is required to shift your various states of awareness seamlessly from one task or activity to another continuously throughout the day. A lack of flexibility can adversely affect your performance and your mood, and leave you feeling drained and stressed at the end of the day. Most of us also, only have a very limited number of states of awareness available to us, not being able to access states of consciousness that utilize higher frequencies. A truly flexible mind allows you to respond appropriately to an increased range of situations and environments. Do you have trouble relaxing after work or getting to sleep? Do you have trouble being focused and on task during the day? This is often related to your brain being stuck in the big slow frequencies, and not shifting smoothly among many higher frequencies as you move through your daily activities.
Resilience is the ability of the brain to bounce back from negative events. These negative events may range from an argument, a bad day at work or something more severe like the loss of a loved one or physical or emotional trauma. A resilient brain returns to its baseline quickly and doesn’t sabotage itself by remaining stuck on repetitive self-critical thoughts or negativity. Individuals with resilient brains report being happier people with more joy, peace and flow in their lives.
NeurOptimal® does not tell your brain what to do. It does not push the brain into specific states of consciousness. Instead, it offers information to the brain about its own activity, which your brain will use—or not— to adjust itself. Because of this NeurOptimal® is very safe and remarkably free of side-effects. However, the process of integrating the information and growing and changing can be a powerful one, one that many of us are not familiar with and which can feel disorienting for some.
How Does NeurOptimal® work?
Neurofeedback is like training for your brain! It is a drug-free, non-invasive form of brain self-regulation “exercise” that helps to improve central nervous system function by voluntarily controlling a persons brainwaves. NeurOptimal® monitors your brainwaves and gives subtle cues (little crackles) to the brain when it isn’t functioning smoothly. When the brain is performing fluidly NeurOptimal® plays music or a movie and when the brain’s activity begins to become inconsistent or less smooth the music and image is interrupted momentarily. The interruption gently cues the brain that it isn’t performing optimally.
Your brain learns when it’s stuck and when it is jumping around inefficiently. As your brain begins to operate more efficiently, NeurOptimal® adjusts itself automatically in response to your brain’s activity, individualizing the training microsecond by microsecond to your own brain’s functioning. In this manner the learning continues based on your brain’s response to the training. Think of NeurOptimal® as a personal meditation teacher, or a dance or martial arts instructor that points out and corrects your form as you train. As you get better, the level of difficulty increases automatically. With practice your form naturally improves and becomes more fluid, helping you become more effective in your personal and professional lives.
Your life begins to flow.
Before the session begins you will establish a baseline for how efficiently and effectively your brain is working. The software will chart your brain activity. After the session you will take another reading. These readings are recorded in your profile and you’ll be able to monitor your progress. But the truth is that no matter what the numbers say or the charts – its really about how you feel and how your life is benefiting.
If you are working with a trainer/counselor he or she will be an important resource in exploring the effectiveness of your training sessions. But usually others can see your progress before you can. In the end, it is always how you are doing in your life that counts. To hear more about the experience of others please review our testimonials or contact us.
How Many NeurOptimal® Sessions Will I Need?
“How long will it take?” is a question many clients ask, second only to “What results can I expect”? These are questions that are not easy to answer because NeurOptimal® is training and we cannot predict what your brain will do with the information it receives. But we can offer some guidelines.
We often tell clients that we would expect to see SOMETHING shift within six sessions – But in my experience most people feel it in the very first session. Usually people are reporting a calmer, more peaceful mind and body. Some people report a more focused and sharper way of thinking. Most everyone will feel something.
The traditional types of Neurofeedback could ask for as many as 40 sessions. I find that with Neuroptimal Neurofeedback that number is more like 8 to 20 sessions depending on the person. I often tell clients that it takes 6 to 10 sessions to start really feeling like you are getting ‘traction’ on your issues.
In the end, the more training you do, the more your new learning will stay with you. It is much like learning a language or a physical skill like rollerblading. The more sessions: the stronger the skill. What is true however is that you can stop whenever you feel ready and return for booster sessions if you want a tune up and to further strengthen what you have learned.
Do the Effects of NeurOptimal® Training Last?
Training with NeurOptimal® is actually a learning task. You get results because your brain is actively learning, even if you are not doing the learning consciously, much like reading, once your brain knows how to read, it can’t “not know”. Your brain doesn’t forget. It may get rusty, but the effects of learning remain throughout your lifetime. However, your brain is living tissue and you can— and will— get “knocked off” by stress, chemicals, alcohol, an anesthetic, by the difficult daily lives we all seem to live. A few booster sessions should get you right back in the groove again if this happens.
Who can use Neurofeedback?
Just about anyone could use Neuroptimal Neurofeedback – Anywhere from children to Old age. There have been many reports of people from all ages and with all kinds of different issues and limitations that are experiencing benefits. People start Neurofeedback for a variety of reasons. Many come to try to get over a long standing condition that nothing else has worked for. Conditions that Neurofeedback works especially well for include anxiety, stress, sleep issues, migraines and depression. It is also a very powerful for helping with focus, add addictions, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and anger management and concentration. There is also a number of people that use it for performance enhancement (athletes, musicians) and to combat side effects of chemotherapy. (Chemo brain)
What Happens in a session?
There will be 5 sensors that will be attached to your ears and head for and EEG. Three on the right ear and two on the left. This will be used to monitor voltage change in brain activity. Then you sit back and enjoy the next 35 minutes of some great music and relax! You can have your eyes open or closed, you can think or not think of issues, you dont have to do anything. The software in neuroptimal does all the work. You don’t have to make any kind of conscious effort at all. You can listen to music, watch a movie, or “zone out” with eyes closed. It doesn’t matter.
Even though it will likely feel relaxing while you are listening, the system is working really hard! strengthening the central nervous system to become more resilient, stable and flexible, and to deal more effectively with whatever stressors that life throws at you!
