What You Need To Know
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is an information-based technology that can greatly enhance your well-being and, overall, help you get the most out of life. The system is loaded onto a laptop computer so it is portable and easy to use.
NeurOptimal® focuses on the central nervous system (CNS) with the goal calming the CNS so that it works more effectively and efficiently. As the CNS calms, symptoms and issues related to a wide variety of conditions start to fade. NeurOptimal® offers the brain moment to moment information that helps the brain to organize and re-organize itself. As neurofeedback has been time-tested over millions of hours, it is safe.

NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is like taking your brain to the gym. When you go to the gym and complete regular workouts, over time that results in strengthened bones and muscles, reduced risk of heart disease and other illnesses, and improved mental health and mood.
With NeurOptimal®, you are connected to a laptop with five sensors and listening to music during the training. The neurofeedback system is monitoring your brainwaves and providing information to your brain about what it has just done. It’s like holding up a mirror to the brain. When the software detects that the brain and central nervous system are working inefficiently, a slight static is heard in the music and the brain then uses that information or “feedback” provided to “reset” itself. Over time, the central nervous system becomes more resilient and flexible in its ability to respond to everyday events. You no longer get “stuck” having the same thoughts over and over, you become less reactive and are able to respond to daily obstacles and issues that arise with more ease.
Clients typically find NeurOptimal® neurofeedback effective in resolving issues in five general categories:
Physical, Cognitive and Emotional challenges
Adults and children have used NeurOptimal® to reduce symptoms related to anxiety, ADHD, autism, learning disability, chronic pain, sleep issues, PTSD, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and many other conditions.
In November of 2012, the American Pediatric Academy (APA) endorsed neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.
A Norwegian study published in 2012 found neurofeedback training to be as effective as Ritalin for addressing the attentional and hyperactivity symptoms of ADHD in children.
Slowing the Effects of Brain Aging
Just as physical exercise helps the body be in better shape, NeurOptimal® keeps the brain fit and resilient. In addition to healthy lifestyle choices, neurofeedback can help improve memory, recall, and increase overall cognitive agility in older individuals.
An ongoing study in France showed positive results when using NeurOptimal® with patients who have Alzheimer’s Disease.
A recent study also showed NeurOptimal® to be effective in reducing the effects of post cancer chemo impairment or “chemobrain”.
Improved Academic Performance
Neurofeedback training can enhance concentration and mental focus therefore students often use NeurOptimal® as a tool to improve their performance in school. Unlike pharmaceutical “smart drugs”, NeurOptimal® is 100% drug-free and has no known side effects.
Peak Physical/Artistic Performance
Neurofeedback is being increasingly used by Olympic and professional athletes and performing artists to provide that critical mental edge that assists them in excelling in their chosen field. And, it is used by recreational athletes just wanting to improve their hockey skills or up their golf or tennis game.
NeurOptimal® assists us in improving our mental outlook by enhancing our ability to respond to life’s challenges with increased ease and resilience. Some users find that neurofeedback enhances the results of their meditation and spiritual practice.
