What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a powerful technology that can greatly enhance your
well-being and generally help you get the most out of life.
Neurofeedback has been around for over 40 years, and recent advances
in technology have made it more accessible and more affordable.
What happens in a session?
You will sit in a comfortable reclining chair in a quiet room. At the
beginning of your session, your certified NeurOptimal® trainer will place
two small sensors on your scalp and a few on 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 and you can watch relaxing geometric images gently morph
across a computer screen or close your eyes and just relax. You will hear
occasional "skips" or interruptions in the music - this is the feedback signal
that allows your brain to observe its own activity. The brain utilizes this
information to optimize itself. NeurOptimal® does not artificially "push" the
brain in any specific direction. That's it! It's that simple.
A NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training session is relaxing, enjoyable, and typically lasts about 45 minutes. At the end of a session, most individuals feel calm and relaxed.
How does it work?
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 a flutter in the electrical signal, it sends an audible signal that invites the brain to observe its own activity.
Why should I use neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal® has been determined by the FDA to be a general wellness device. 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.
A growing number of Olympic and professional athletes now use neurofeedback to provide
that critical mental edge which often results in gold medals and championships. When
competitors are separated by 100ths of a second, the improved mental focus and physical
performance neurofeedback provides can mean the difference between winning and losing.
But you don't have to be a pro athlete to enjoy the benefits of neurofeedback. Looking to
improve your golf game? Want to be a better pitcher for your company softball team?

Because neurofeedback training helps manage stress and enhances focus and mental acuity,
students use NeurOptimal® as a critical tool to improve their performance in school.
Neurofeedback has helped millions of people discover the joy of peak performance. How might it help you?

4. How is NeurOptimal® different from other systems?
There are a few key factors that distinguish NeurOptimal® from other neurofeedback systems:
1. 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 systemswhere 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.
2. 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.
3. 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!
4. 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.
