What is NeurOptimal® neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a scientific process by which brain waves are measured and reflected back to the brain. This feedback process enables the brain to alter maladaptive brain states and essentially “train” itself over time to gain resilience and return more easily to a state of clarity and calm.
NeurOptimal® is considered by many to be the most safe, highly evolved type of neurofeedback available. Prized by athletes, business professionals, students and creatives, NeurOptimal® allows the brain to regulate itself more effectively so the user can achieve optimal performance.
In a recent study examining over 3 million hours of training, NeurOptimal® clients reported improvements with anxiety, depression, ADHD, sleep disorders, stress, grief processing, acquired brain injuries, and much more. Additionally, our clients who use NeurOptimal® in conjunction with EMDR sessions have reported faster processing times, greater resilience, and dramatic increases in healing.
Your NeurOptimal® Session: What to Expect
When you arrive for your 50 minute session, you will relax in a comfortable recliner in our peaceful treatment room with one of our wellness providers. You can enjoy the comforts of a cup of tea and a weighted blanket if desired.
We will clip sensors with a small amount conductive paste to your ears and place two sensors on top of your head. The sensors on your head detect electrical activity from your brain, while the sensors on your ears serve to ground and to filter electrical activity in the room.
Using headphones, you will listen to gentle music specially designed for NeurOptimal®. A beautiful and soothing visual display will play on a monitor in front of your recliner. We recommend that you watch the visuals with your session, as they are created to be part of the treatment, but you may also close your eyes and rest, journal, or read.
Throughout your session, you may notice brief pauses or interruptions in the music. This is the NeurOptimal® system providing signals to your brain. The signals are generated in response to changes in brainwaves, which are neither good nor bad - brainwaves change all the time. The interruptions act like a mirror for your brain and enable it to decide what to do with that information.
We schedule your NeurOptimal® session for 50 minutes, although the actual brain training process is only 33 minutes long. The additional time is to set up, connect with you on your progress, schedule your next appointment, and complete payment as needed.
All intake forms and consents are completed and signed online through our HIPPA compliant, client portal.
