Why Use NeurOptimal®?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. It is not surprising then, that users and trainers alike have experienced successful outcomes across a broad spectrum of complaints.
Our clients typically find NeurOptimal® neurofeedback systems effective in resolving issues in five general categories:
• Wellness and Personal Growth
• Slowing the Effects of Brain Aging
• Achieving an Artistic or Athletic Performance Edge
• Help with Specific Cognitive, Emotional, or Physical Challenges (e.g., ADHD, anxiety, chronic pain)
• Enhancing Academic Performance
Wellness and Personal Growth
For most, wellness is an awareness of the intimate connection between our state of mind and our physical health. Wellness typically involves the pursuit of spiritual growth for greater joy and fulfillment. Individuals in this category tend to enjoy exploring their own consciousness to discover deeper meaning. Brain training with Neuroptimal tends to accelerate this psychological evolution. Training the central nervous system also better equips users to cope with daily life challenges that could potentially delay their pursuit of wellness. Life coaches and psychotherapists use the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system to support and speed up their work with clients.
Slow the Effects of Brain Aging
Brain fitness is important at any age, but it is especially critical after age forty when anatomical changes can adversely affect our brains. Memory loss, loss of neural circuity, loss of brain plasticity and an overall thinning of cortex are well-documented age-related phenomena that may negatively impact our emotional and physical well-being. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback can help slow and even reverse the detrimental effects of brain aging. Neuroptimal trainers worldwide have found neurofeedback to be an excellent supplement to an anti-aging regimen that includes exercise, dietary shifts, vitamins and minerals, hormone balancing as well as staying socially actively and intellectually engaged.
Peak Performance for Athletes and Artists
NeurOptimal has helped stage performers, opera singers, celebrities and athletes excel in their chosen field. “If the performances of world-class athletes are separated by hundreths, sometimes thousanths of a second, more strength or flexibility will not help them secure victory. Nor will adding five hours practice to an already grueling weekly schedule. It is tapping the potential of the mind and its intricate connection to the body that will provide the elusive edge” – Rael Isacowitz, 2006
Help with Specific Cognitive, Emotional, or Physical Challenges
NeurOptimal offers help for depression. It can dramatically help with anxiety. A recent research conference in Palm Springs, California documented positive outcomes when NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training was utilized to address a plethora of difficult issues arising from ADD, ADHD, PTSD disorder, Alzheimers disease, autism, sleep disorders, insomnia and cognitive dysfunction from chemo-therapy. A recent Norwegian study found neurofeedback training to be just as effective as Ritalin for treating children with ADHD.
Enhance Academic Performance
NeurOptimal® is a phenomenal learning tool. It helps with focus, engagement and significantly increases one’s attention span. Students of all ages can learn more quickly and effectively. They retain more of what they read and study. Teachers and parents often notice positive changes in performance and behavior after just a few sessions. NeurOptimal® can even have a positive impact on your IQ.
