NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Users Have Experienced Improvement In Many Areas: Here Are Just a Few
Your main job during a session is to relax, either sitting in a comfortable chair, or reclined. You listen to specially designed music, or you may choose to listen to something else. Your eyes may be open, watching a never-repeating image, or you may close your eyes, or read, or sleep.You do this while two small sensors attached to your scalp send moment by moment information about your brain through a filter into the computer. The computer then feeds information back to your brain in the form of very brief interruptions (hard to detect) in the music you’re listening to. Your brain then responds, and reorganizes itself for greater efficiency, even without your conscious awareness.
Results of NeurOptimal® training can be dramatic or subtle. In order to ensure that changes are noted, it is important to complete a thorough baseline assessment, quantifying what problems you’re experiencing, how frequently, and how intensely. NeurOptimal® forms are available for this purpose, to help track one’s baseline status, goals, and progress.
Additionally, NeurOptimal® has compiled data gathered from its Trainers worldwide. To date, over 3 million sessions have been logged, with thousands of happy clients reporting positive results.You may wish to download the NeurOptimal® Survey of Practitioners [Click Here] to see results recorded by practitioners.
Each person’s brain is unique, impacted by such things as genetics, blows to the head, diet, blood sugar regulation, drugs, hormones, etc. It is therefore not possible to say how many sessions any person might need to see results, especially in a particular area (say sleep, for example). Generally speaking, the longer you’ve had a problem, and the more severe it’s gotten, the longer it might take to see improvement in that specific problem. Improvements may come in other areas first.Some people see positive changes in as few as 3 -7 sessions; others require more; some require many more. When you notice positive changes in at least one area, you know more changes are coming.
A general rule of thumb is that 2 or 3 times a week can provide the right amount of both training and integration time. Sometimes, for specific reasons, a person may wish to train more; the suggested limit is not more than two sessions in one day.
Have you ever gotten back on a bicycle, after not riding for years? Or played tennis again, after a long time? If so, you realize that foundational knowledge is still there, and you can regain your skills again, faster than if you’d never ridden or played before. It’s similar with NeurOptimal® training. Some people like to get “tune ups” once a month, or during times of extra stress, or at a certain time of year (during the anniversary of a loss, for example); others see brain training as a lifelong endeavor.
We like to jokingly say that anyone with a brain can benefit – and it’s true! People who have used NeurOptimal® over time have reported:
