How does NeurOptimal® work?

NeurOptimal® uses the brain’s own capacities and resources to provide the brain with information about itself so it can learn to work more efficiently and effectively. It is like holding up a mirror for your brain to see what it is doing. Think of how you react to your reflection when you look in a mirror. You might stand a little taller or fix a hair that is out of place. You correct and adjust yourself in response to the information you have received from the mirror. Your brain does the same thing during a NeurOptimal® session, constantly adjusting itself, moment by moment in response to the information it is receiving, which allows the brain to reorganize itself and over time, learns to become more balanced. NeurOptimal® does not tell the brain what to do or push it in any direction and no electrical current is sent back through the EEG leads. Your brain is in charge and decides what to do with the information it receives.

Neurofeedback testimonial

“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.”
