DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK? READ TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Here are two latest reviews from our rental clients:
“I rented a Neurofeedback machine for three months and have been very pleased with the results. I feel calmer and more focused. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity. Sara and Kate were wonderful and responsive. Thank you very much!”
“Please extend the rental. I am so enthused with what has happened in one month. I am in a bit of a dis-belief. I have pled for years with my husband to get help for his mind. And the last couple weeks have been amazing. He is willing to admit he needs help. Childhood pain is being released. This is amazing!”
Neurofeedback for Kids - Reviews from Parents
Parent and 10 year old child trained together consistently for a period of six months, 2-3 times in-office sessions per month. Both saw significant improvements in behavior, focus and an overall wellbeing.
Mother explaining how it helped her 16 year son with emotional regulation:
"In the beginning the benefits of the training would last for a bit, but then revert back. However, after 8 sessions it lasted for 2 days. After session 11, I noticed a significant improvement - he came downstairs later in the day and said he was just able to sit and work on a project he had been avoiding for 2 days. He’s now been getting himself up in the morning by 9am to work on a song writing instead of sleeping until 12pm and being mad at himself later. Also, he's been able to make himself go to bed at a reasonable hour. Other changes I have noticed with him are that he is softer, more open, far less easily irritated, and is starting to seek out conversation and connection with us. Yesterday after he told me about being able to focus more I was amazed. When he left the room I sat on the couch and cried from relief because I realized he could now potentially have quality relationships and attachments. This is definitely a game changer. I am sold.
Family rented a unit first and then decided to buy a system.
A Therapist Review
I added NeuroOptimal Neurofeedback to my practice in order to help optimize and integrate the functioning of the nervous system within the physical, mental and emotional dynamics. I also particularly enjoy working with children and adolescents who often respond quite quickly to training.

Health Professional Review
After just 3 NeurOptimal sessions, I'm feeling more focused and clear. As a mental health professional, I initially felt hesitant to try something external to assist my cognitive process, but I'm amazed at the immediacy of the results. The NeurOptimal Neurofeedback system seems to offers a shift by working with the areas that govern attention, a key component to both analytic and emotional processing. Based on my own experience, I highly recommend as a tool and supplement to therapy.

Neurofeedback for Focus
I was looking for alternative ways for my daughter to help her improve focus. My daughter has now done 10 sessions (training once per week). I have seen her gain the ability to focus better, resolve issues better and take on tasks with less anxiety. I then personally began sessions of Neurofeedback for myself, hoping to reduce stress. I now feel a sense of distance from anxious thoughts and triggers that I previously did not have. This distance allows me to approach an issue from a tactical stand point, working toward resolution, rather than overwhelming me. Both of our sessions are still ongoing, and we look forward to future results.
C. 10 Neurofeedback Sessions & ongoing (Parent to a 9 year old child)
“I originally sought neurofeedback training for my daughter who is 8. She has focus issues, receptive and expressive language delays as well as sensory issues. I scheduled a few training sessions for myself first in order to see what the experience is like. Alison explained that a rental is a cost-effective approach that also allows the whole family to train. I've always seen my daughter’s issues as linked to my own anxiety as a parent so it felt great to have my intuition affirmed in neuro - language. Immediately I felt that the reduction in my anxiety as a result of training had positive ripple effects on my family. My daughter experienced reduced sensory symptoms around sensitive areas (we can change her earrings now without a 20 minute anxiety attack) and she did her first forward roll in gymnastics the other day as well as jumped in the swimming pool for the first time (she was always too nervous before). The two months we rented also coincided with increased clarity and confidence in reading in school as well as marked verbal expression around focus and “difficulties with focus.” My 5-year-old son used the most sessions ~ requesting them often “because it feels good” and demonstrated increased receptivity to redirection & increased awareness on his part around his behavior as it connects to his emotions. Training opened a window that helped me start to experience a reduction in symptoms that I really wasn’t able to identify until they were absent. My own experience as a result of training involved the capacity for increased clarity in verbal communication and tolerance of conflict as well as a reduction in my tendency to procrastinate because of perfectionistic ideals which have increased my bandwidth as a parent and at work. It’s an amazing experience that I hope to continue to generalize. This method feels safe & contained in a way that allowed me to feel like we have done enough training over 2 months that we can stop but I also feel like we will pick up again sometime in the future.”

My son who is 8 years old, was feeling stressed about school. He wasn't sleeping well and was feeling emotional, especially around homework. I decided to rent a neurofeedback home system to save in cost. I gradually started seeing changes in behavior. These changes was very subtle, from sleeping better to being more at ease in stressful situations such as getting ready for school, and finish homework. One morning after doing a session the day before, my son woke up and thought he had slept for two days. I've noticed after a session he wakes up happier.

Neurofeedback has been a great tool for improving my sleep and better managing stress.
– M. L., 20 sessions
"After a neurofeedback session, I feel more calm and grounded, and find that problems are affecting me less. The subtle feeling of being more present lasts, and having once had several weekly sessions, an occasional refresher session helps me retrieve that state more easily."
– Michael, 10 Sessions
I decided to try neurofeedback after a friend told me how it helped her and suggested it to help me manage stress. After my first session, I felt relaxed and took a nap for the first time in years and slept soundly that night (I guess my brain needed sleep!). After a few more sessions, I noticed a subtle shift, mostly an increased ability to focus. I brought my boys, ages 7 and 9, in for a session. They both said they felt relaxed after. I noticed they were calmer and happier. Sara is warm, attentive, and wonderful with children. My kids love her!
Kristen, 11 Sessions Total: After 5 sessions; I feel relaxed, calm and am sleeping very well.
“Aside from rest, neurofeedback is quite possibly the only method that helped feeling more relaxed. After the first four neurofeedback sessions I slept very deeply and felt noticeably better upon awakening. There was a very marked synchronicity in my sense perceptions and body movement when I walked onto the street after those first couple sessions. After about five sessions I started to feel noticeably better. My daily life started to resemble a more normal pattern of daily activities with even some artistic work in the evenings. I can now do things on the weekends without worrying that I might feel sick or have to sleep most of the day.”

Kathy: I reached a new level of calm after biofeedback [Neurofeedback Training]. My brain definitely felt like it got a 'workout' in a good way, and it improved my sleep. Alex [NYC neurofeedback trainer] himself is a calm and kind presence and enhanced the whole experience. Read the Google Review
"I had heard about neurofeedback from a friend years ago and since then always wanted to try it. When I saw that neurofeedback training was available in LA and also close to my home in Northeast LA I decided to give it a try and I am very pleased by the results. I do a lot for my health; I exercise and eat healthy. But I instantly knew neurofeedback training worked for me because after only a few sessions I remembered my dreams for the first time in years."
– Diana, 10 Sessions
“I must say, I was skeptical at first. Having a background in psychology, I was wary of Neurofeedback. Well, at least 15 sessions later, I am sold! I find my concentration levels improving, ability to understand and retain information while studying has increased, and I have more natural and restful sleep cycles---all adding up to a more relaxed feeling throughout my day. Sara has an amazing way of ensuring a quality experience and a genuine concern for the well-being of others. These sessions are well worth my time because in the long run, I feel much more clarity and am able to sharply assess where to focus my energy.”

How Does Neurofeedback Help with Improving Sleep Habits?
I’ve used neurofeedback for 2 months for performance anxiety and to boost my confidence - training 2 times a week. I’m becoming noticeably more comfortable in both personal and professional situations, hooray! It feels great to have found a tool that has truly helped move the needle on issues I’ve been experiencing (and trying to resolve in various ways) for years. I liked my neurofeedback home rental experience so much that I ultimately decided to purchase a system. Thanks! :)

From our Blog: 3 Ways Stress Impacts Relationships
RENTING A HOME SYSTEM
"I was looking for neurofeedback near me and found a way to rent a home system instead. This is by far the best investment in self improvement I have ever made! I don't lose my temper at the drop of a pin anymore. I still get annoyed or upset, but I haven't yelled, felt overwhelmed, or flooded since I rented the system. I chose to do a month of unlimited training, and added on 2 extra weeks. I returned the system a month ago and all the benefits remain. I'm still not flooded by anger. My teenager can't push my buttons anymore. I don't get overwhelmed by traffic. I'm still impatient, so I think I'll do some booster sessions, but the change in my demeanor is so noticeable, it's just crazy."
S. From Yelp: Neurofeedback Los Angeles
"Neurofeedback training has been a great way for me to manage my stress better and helped me engage more intimately with the present moment. At first glance the setup may seem foreign-- little plugs on your ears and head-- but it is very easy and straightforward to use. It takes around 30-40 minutes each session. There is also great music played while the machine monitors your brain activity. Within five to ten minutes of starting each session, I find myself calm and more relaxed. Any agonizing thoughts greatly dissipates and I feel more present! Likewise, I am more at ease accomplishing my daily tasks after I do a session. After about six or seven sessions, I started to notice these short-term effects playing out in my day-to-day life, even when I hadn't completed a session on a particular day. Living in Los Angeles as many of us know, can be very stressful and this has proven to be a great support to my busy lifestyle. I continue to use neurofeedback regularly and I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested. Truly a great way to stay focused and feel more present in life!"

NEUROFEEDBACK FOR KIDS
My six year old son really enjoyed the neurofeedback training. It’s been over three weeks since he did a session but he still remembers how it made him feel. Yesterday he watched a scary scene in a movie (the story of Bambi). He burst into tears, came sobbing to his mom and asked if he could do the “music thing”.. that is, NeurOptimal.

REVIEWS ON RENTING A HOME SYSTEM
“I rented the home unit (unlimited package). I was immediately impressed with the careful organization of materials and instructions. It is easy for a technological dinosaur like myself to use! The effect on myself is beyond adequate description. Daily increasing peace, focus, better sleep and especially less stressful response to the challenges I face.”
– M. W. Rented a Home System for 2 months, Unlimited Sessions Plan
"I looked forward to each treatment and as a result I feel more relaxed, calmer, and less anxious. In addition, I believe I am more focused and content. I would highly recommend your modality to anyone.”
– Bill, NYC (rented the Home System for two months, 20 Sessions)
I almost couldn't believe how helpful the team at Neurofeedback Training Co. is. From my very first session, they made me feel safe and prepared for a change! After having a few sessions at the office I decided to rent a machine to train at home. I would do it again in a heart beat. Highly recommend Natalie Baker!
– A. , NYC, Home Unit Renter
"I rented the neurofeedback family trainer for one month and it was very easy to use. After 14 sessions, I felt more energized - more able to concentrate. Things that in the past would have bothered or depressed me, now just seem to melt away. I'm more able to take charge. I'd highly recommend renting the home system."
