Frequently Asked Questions

Is NeurOptimal®safe?

 Research shows your own brain “knows best” and therefore the NeurOptimal® brain training system does not force or “push” the brain in any one direction. Basically, Dynamical Neurofeedback® provides your brain with the information it needs to correct itself and function at its most optimal. NeurOptimal® simply enables your own brain’s natural process of self-correction.NeurOptimal® is exceptionally safe and without any side effects.  NeurOptimal® has provided brain training to the public for the past 17 years and has well over three million hours of safe usage.

Is brain training invasive?

No, NeurOptimal® is entirely non-invasive.  Sensors are temporarily attached to your head and ears to only monitor cortical activity.  It does not attempt to “fix” predetermined conditions or pin down specific problems by augmenting or suppressing any frequencies.  It merely, serves as a mirror by providing direct feedback to the brain.

 

Will I have to do anything?

NeurOptimal® requires no effort on the user’s part. Some brain training systems require the user to “interact” by playing games or solve puzzles during sessions. This additional level of interaction is unnecessary with the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system. During a training session, you can simply relax and enjoy!

How many sessions does it take to feel a difference?

Each person is different and unique.  Some people feel an instant improvement, others feel it after 5 or 6 sessions, and still others after more sessions. The human body and the brain in particular operate in nonlinear ways, so we suggest that users have an open mind and stick with regular brain training to see results. We recommend a minimum of 10 sessions as a baseline for brain training.

What sorts of differences will I start to feel?

The first thing most people notice is a substantial improvement in the quality of their sleep, particularly more vivid dreams. After a few sessions users often feel more focused, calm, and centered. With continued training people report more confidence, productivity. They begin bouncing back from stressors with ease, and report that life generally becomes smoother. Users work faster, more efficiently, and experience a significant reduction in physical complaints. They are less bothered by doubts and insecurities and are more apt to experience confidence and satisfaction.
