How Does it Work?
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is like taking your brain to the gym. When you go to the gym and complete regular workouts, over time that results in strengthened bones and muscles, reduced risk of heart disease and other illnesses, and improved mental health and mood.
With NeurOptimal®, you are connected to a laptop with five sensors and listening to music during the training. The neurofeedback system is monitoring your brainwaves and providing information to your brain about what it has just done. It’s like holding up a mirror to the brain. When the software detects that the brain and central nervous system are working inefficiently, a slight static is heard in the music and the brain then uses that information or feedback provided to reset itself. Over time, the central nervous system becomes more resilient and flexible in its ability to respond to everyday events. You no longer get “stuck” having the same thoughts over and over, you become less reactive and are able to respond to daily obstacles and issues that arise with more ease.
