WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?
Neurofeedback therapy is a more advanced branch of biofeedback. It gives the brain real-time feedback about it's negative brainwave patterns that contribute to mental health symptoms such as anxiety, impulsivity or lack of focus. It is sometimes called neurotherapy, neurobiofeedback, or EEG biofeedback. Watch the video below to learn how it works.
In this video, Natalie Baker, Advanced NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback trainer and founder of Neurofeedback Training Co. answers the question: how does neurofeedback work?
What neurofeedback equipment do we use?

USES OF NEUROFEEDBACK
Athletes, business professionals, students, and musicians have also used neurofeedback training to improve mental and physical performance.
People using neurofeedback have experienced relief from ADHD, depression and anxiety, epilepsy, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, anger, rage, cognitive impairment, migraines and headaches, chronic pain, autism, sleep problems, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
How Many Neurofeedback Therapy Sessions Do I Need?
The number of sessions varies depending on why the person is training and type of symptoms. And when clients have more stressors they often need more training. In general most clients train somewhere between 10 - 30+ sessions. Some people fall in love with the training and decide they want to own a system, like buying a treadmill for home use. Those people are often interested in optimal health, and want to keep their brains in top performance. Other people train for specific symptom relief, such as the headaches and dizziness of a concussion. For them, 10-15 sessions is typical. Long term conditions such as complex trauma/ PTSD, train weekly for 6+ months.
“Neurofeedback is utterly fascinating! The effects lie beyond conscious control, yet within the field of perceptible awareness. I walk out synchronized and in step, every time. I look forward to my sessions because I know I’m going to have a good night’s sleep when I get home. This type of work is a must for any healer or meditator.”
– John, 16 Sessions
"My depression has lessened and my focus has been enhanced. I am an artist and have struggled with completing projects or making headway on projects for a long time especially since having a child. I have come back into myself and started to make progress with my work."
– Maria, 30 Sessions
“My 9-year-old daughter have done 6 sessions and I am happy to report that a week after her sessions she said to me that she never wanted to watch a scary movie again because for the first time in her life she wasn’t afraid.“

NEUROPTIMAL vS. OTHER NEUROFEEDBACK SYSTEMS
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. Learn more about this system vs. other biofeedback systems
