Would you like to:

  • Manage anxiety?

NeurOptimal is an advanced neurofeedback system that works with your brain to allow you to perform at your optimal potential.


Why NeurOptimal?

Many individuals deal with stress throughout their daily lives.  Over time, both physical and emotional stressors can have a significant effect on the brain.  Physical stressors include elements such as lack of sleep, a poor diet, abuse of medication and drugs, trauma, and exposure to neurotoxins within our environment.  These physical stressors paired with emotional stressors including tensions at home, at work, and within relationships become taxing on the brain and its function.  Over time, these negative stressors affect your overall quality of life and can predispose you to a mental slump.  As each new stressor comes along, your brain adds it to the list of stressors to manage and will continue to manage them even when it is no longer present in your life.  As more and more stress accumulates, the brain is no longer able to perform at its optimal ability.

Our brains act very similar to a computer.  As you begin to use your computer for many things, new programs are downloaded and new tabs begin to open which continue to accumulate.  This takes up a lot of space on the computer and it continues to utilize energy on all these programs, whether you’re using them or not.  After a while, in order for your computer to continue to run efficiently, you have to go through and close out of many of these tabs and programs.  This is where NeurOptimal comes in.  NeurOptimal gives the brain an opportunity to reflect on its performance and make changes to organize itself for maximum efficiency.  “Tabs” you no longer utilize can be closed which allows your brain more energy to dedicate to the things that matter.


Benefits

Although NeurOptimal is not a medical treatment for illness, it has provided many people relief from various mental, emotional, and physical symptoms.  Over time, clients notice improvements such as but not limited to:

  • Better sleep
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Better focus
  • Happier overall
  • Better able to cope with stress
  • Greater attention span

Clients themselves have said the following about their personal NeurOptimal experience:

Immediately after my first session I saw a drastic change in my sleep.  I had just moved into my new house and I was unable to adjust to the new environment.  The following night after my first NeurOptimal session I fell asleep easily and slept through the entire night for the first time in what felt like forever.  After my continued use of NeurOptimal I have noticed how much easier I am able to deal with stress and adapt to new changes within my day to day routine.  I can’t wait to see the benefits that will arise when I continue NeurOptimal into the school year!” – Anna G.


How it Works

Through this noninvasive process, sensors are placed on your scalp and ear to read electrical signals coming from your brain. When the NeurOptimal system detects inconsistencies in your brain activity, it uses music to signal to your brain to alter its course. You will notice this within your session when the music has a brief pause – almost like static.  In this way, your brain is able to read back what it has done and improve performance accordingly.  Throughout your session your brain is challenged to retrain itself to become more effective, more calm, and more balanced.

Throughout your session you are free to relax and listen to the music – you could even take a nap!   Unlike other systems, NeurOptimal helps correct without the need for you to perform certain tasks or activities throughout the session.

Each NeurOptimal session lasts about 35 minutes.


This is your path to a more balanced you.
