What happens in a Session?
During a NeurOptimal neurofeedback session, EEG sensors are placed on the head and ears to collect the information about the brain’s activity, which gets fed into the neurofeedback's software on the computer. You sit and listen to music . When your brain is about to do something new, i.e. change states, it does a certain kind of “electrical dance”, which the software identifies. When that “dance” is detected the computer program stops the music in milliseconds. What the stopping of the music does, is trigger the orienting response and the brain “comes into the present” and sees what it was about to do and also takes in information about the external environment. And all of this it does in milliseconds and outside of your conscious awareness.
A good analogue is like when you are daydreaming and in a daydream you (your brain) are not aware of what is happening, not until someone calls your name (the music stopping in neurofeedback) and you simultaneously realize that you were lost in a daydream, and recognize the quality of that daydream, as well as take in information about the here-and-now.

Why NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?
We chose the most advanced neurofeedback equipment to use in our clinics and for home unit rentals: NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback.
Unlike other neurofeedback systems, NeurOptimal® is designed to focus on the central nervous system - the hub of all functions in the human body. Therefore, the specific type of problem, be it physical, mental or emotional, becomes less important. It is not surprising then, that clients have experienced successful outcomes across a broad spectrum of complaints.
