Has your daily grind gotten you feeling run-down? Do you feel overwhelmed by your ever-growing to-do list? Too much stress can take its toll on both your mental and physical heath. When the pressure is on, the brain’s ability to function effectively can be negatively impacted. NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback can help optimize your brain function in a way that is safe, non-invasive and 100% natural.
What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is an advanced neuro-technology that offers training for the brain, enabling it to function at its best. It is not a game, fad, or gadget. It is a life-changing technology, solidly founded in neuroscience, that can significantly enhance the human experience. Instead of targeting specific symptoms, NeurOptimal® focuses on optimizing overall brain function. This approach can naturally ameliorate most complaints, whatever their source may be.
How does Neuroptimal® work?
The brain has an inherent ability to self-correct when given the right information and NeurOptimal® is designed to provide the brain with the information it needs to make its own adjustments. NeurOptimal® detects abrupt changes in the brain and informs it of these sudden shifts through interruptions in the sounds you are listening to. These almost imperceptible pauses invite your central nervous system to pull away from the less-than-ideal path it was on. This happens over and over until the natural self-correction becomes your new normal and your brain functions more effectively. When this happens, you’ll sleep better, feel more relaxed, and be able to focus more easily.
What can I expect during a session?
Before your session can begin, you must first consult with one of our Naturopathic Doctors for a Core Evaluation. You will be asked to fill out a few forms that can be used to help assess your individual needs. You will then sit in a comfortable chair and simply relax. Sensors are applied to your scalp and earclips to your ears. These sensors allow NeurOptimal® to read the delicate electrical activity of your brain, much like an EKG reads your heart. You then listen to music and watch an ever-changing visual display, although you can close your eyes and tune it out if you prefer. There are very brief pauses in the sound, indicating that NeurOptimal® is at work, invisibly guiding you through four unique “Zen Modes”, during which the challenge to your brain is varied. Despite the complexity, no effort is required from you during the session at all! Simply relax for 30-45 minutes while your brain re-organizes itself.
