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 was a limitation in many earlier neurofeedback systems. Often, resolving one 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. As a result, this neurofeedback system can be used effectively to address a wide array of complaints without specifically “targeting” them from the outset of the training.
2. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is extremely 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 correct itself and function at its most optimal. NeurOptimal® simply enables your own brain’s natural process of self-correction.
3. NeurOptimal® requires no effort on the user’s part. Some brain training systems require the user to “interact” by playing games or solve 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!

When you come in for your session, you will sit in a cozy zero-gravity chair and simply relax. Your trainer will place two tiny sensors on your scalp, and ear-clips on your ears. These sensors allow NeurOptimal® to read the delicate electrical activity of your brain, much like an EKG reads your heart. You will then listen to the music for 33 minutes, you can close your eyes if you choose to.
Children sometimes like to play a quiet game or read a book. There are very brief pauses in the music indicating NeurOptimal® is at work, invisibly guiding you through a complex mathematical dance during which the challenge to your brain is varied.
Despite the complexity “under the hood”, no effort is required from you during sessions, at all! Simply relax and enjoy the session while your brain re-organizes itself.
*Your initial session will be 90 minutes and all subsequent sessions will be 60 minutes
Because everyone’s central nervous system is different, it is not possible to predict exactly how your brain will respond to the information NeurOptimal® provides. Just as in how long it takes to learn to read, it's a process and everyone learns differently.
We have clients who have trained 20-40+ times and who have made brain training a regular part of their self-care routine, and others who have felt they accomplished their training goals in 10 sessions or less. It is up to you as a client as you start training how many sessions you want to do and how often you want to do them. The good thing is you can stop at any time and always pick it up again later if you so choose.
Any training you have done in the past will always serve you well should you do more sessions in the future — no session is ever wasted.
But in the end, it is always up to you, their is no right or wrong number of sessions, because it is YOUR brain that is doing the training and it knows what it needs.
NeurOptimal® has no known unwanted side-effects. It is 100% Safe for all ages to use.
When you are training, no electricity, vibration or external signal is going into the brain. The sensors are simply monitoring electrical activity.
In addition, brain training with NeurOptimal® does not target specific areas of the brain nor does it push the brain in any direction by giving it goals to achieve. In this way, NeurOptimal® is globally effective while remarkably free of unwanted side effects.
Before your first session, you will be asked to complete an online checklist of concerns so that we can have a self-reported baseline of your symptoms as well as goals.
You then have the option to complete this assessment again after every 10 sessions and compare pre and post data. We do not perform any kind of brain scan assessment, such as a qEEG brain map, which is typical in the conventional linear approach to neurofeedback, to get a visual snapshot of the activity in the brain.
Such assessments, or any diagnosis you may have, are not at all required or useful with NeurOptimal® and does not change the way the training is performed. The system always meets your brain exactly where it is, moment by moment, and simply gives the nervous system information about what it is doing, allowing the brain to self-correct at its own pace.
There is no attempt to push your brain into a ‘normal’ range and so looking at the changes in the brain have little consequence. The only kind of assessment that is useful to notice are your experiential changes in your well-being, such as cognitively, emotionally, physically, socially, behaviorally or spiritually. For that, we use progress tracking tools such as the pre and post checklist as well as a brief check-in at each session to talk about your shifts.
