Would you like to:
- Feel more alert?
- Sleep better?
- Be more focused?
- Manage anxiety?
NeurOptimal is an advanced neurofeedback system that works with your brain to allow you to perform at your optimal potential.
Many of us deal with physical and emotional stress daily: Lack of sleep, poor diet, abuse of medication and drugs, trauma, and exposure to neurotoxins within our environment are some of the physical stressors we walk around with. Pair these with emotional stressors like tensions at home, work, and within relationships and we seriously tax our brain and its functioning. As each new stressor comes along, our brain adds it to the list of stressors to manage and continue to manage even when it is no longer present in our life. Over time, these stressors have significant effect on our brains, and as more stress accumulates, the brain is no longer able to perform at its optimal ability.
Think of your brain like a computer. New programs are downloaded and new tabs are opened over the course of the day, which takes up space and utilizes energy, whether you’re using them or not. After a while, for your computer to continue running efficiently, you have to go through and close out of many of these tabs and programs. This is where NeurOptimal comes in. NeurOptimal Brain Training gives your brain an opportunity to reflect on its performance and make changes to organize itself for maximum efficiency. “Tabs” you no longer use can be closed, which allows your brain more energy to dedicate to the things that matter, like being present for family, friends and co-workers.
Although NeurOptimal Brain Training 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
- Greater focus
- Happier overall
- Increased ability to cope with stress
- Greater attention span
A recent comment about the impact of NeurOptimal:
“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
Before you begin your session, a trainer places two sensors on your scalp to read electrical signals coming from your brain. Three sensors are applied to your ears to ground the scalp sensors. At thsi point, you place headphones on to begin a session of listening to beautiful, relaxing music.
When the NeurOptimal system detects inconsistencies in your brain activity, it uses a skip or pop in the music – almost like static – a signal to your brain to alter its course. In this way, your brain is able to read back what it has done and make a change in performance accordingly (close a tab perhaps). Throughout your session your brain is challenged to retrain itself to become more effective, more calm, and more balanced.
All you need to do is 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.
