NEUROPTIMAL® Neurofeedback Training
What is Neurofeedback you ask?
Neurofeedback is essentially a computer-aided total brain workout. But do not let that scare you! It is not a treatment for any medical or psychological problem, but a tool for training the brain to be flexible, resilient, and efficient. Interestingly, we find that when you train the brain in this way, many different symptoms decrease, or even in some cases disappear completely. Within our brains, neurofeedback detects problem areas, interrupts the misapplied effort, and allows the brain to correct itself in a safe and natural way.

What happens during a NEUROPTIMAL® session?
The training is performed while you are seated in a comfortable chair. Lead wires are connected to your scalp and ears using conductive paste, which is a glue stick like consistency and the same paste used in hospitals for other EEG purposes. Brain wave activity is transmitted via these wires to an encoder box that converts the signal from analog to digital so that the computer software can understand what is going on. The program starts and you will hear music playing through ear buds. When the brain detects that it is not balanced in one or more brain wave frequencies, the music pauses briefly. It almost sounds like stutter or a slight skip in the track. These pauses in the music are the feedback to the brain. The brain is learning and reorganizing from this feedback.
The technology behind this program gives the individual split second timing in receiving the feedback. The brain hears almost instantaneously how it is functioning and is able to make change accordingly.
Sound complicated? No worries. There is no effort or conscious thinking required for the program to work. All you have to do is sit comfortably, relax, and listen to the music. Your brain will do all of the work for you!
