Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change itself. NeurOptimal® taps into our brain’s neuroplasticity to facilitate change. This video does an excellent job explaining neuroplasticity. Another helpful way to think about neural pathways is to think of a ski/snowboarding slope. At the beginning of the day, the freshly groomed trail has no pathways at all, you start down the slope and create a new pathway. Throughout the day, the more runs you (and other skiers/boarders) take, the more well traveled certain pathways become. This is just like our brain, we tend to stick with the same pathways time and time again because it is habitual (comfortable and predictable). NeurOptimal® allows the brain to notice whether we are intentionally using a pathway, or if we are just falling into old patterns of behaviour that may not be the most optimal choice in that moment.
Have you ever wondered about what a NeurOptimal® session looks and feels like? At KV Psychology, we are happy to provide you with a consultation where you are able to try NeurOptimal® first hand, with an introductory session. During this time, you’re able to ask any questions you may have and experience first hand the zen that so many discover from brain training.
“Every session of NeurOptimal® helps me to relax. Before the session, I feel as though my nervous system is in high gear. I have a lot of anxiety and it is difficult to relax. After the session, I feel like I have geared-down and am able to relax. I sleep better and I find sessions with my therapist are more productive.”
