What is it?

Have you ever struggled to focus on a task, unable to push past a wall of stress, anxiety, or lack of sleep? At some point, we’ve all realized that our brains are capable of more than we use them for. It is this key realization that founded NeurOptimal®, a safe and enjoyable way to enhance your mind’s functioning. 
 
But you may be wondering, “How does it work?” 
 
Your central nervous system (CNS) controls how you process your environment, react to things around you, and regulate your thoughts and emotions. Sometimes, your CNS doesn’t make the best use of the natural resources that your brain has available to process life both internally and externally. This inefficiency happens when our minds automatically drift toward our mental “ruts.” The neural pathways that our brains revert to most frequently become deep trenches, and our brains often take the easy route by defaulting to these preformed patterns. 
 
That’s why you may find yourself irritable or overactive, unable to concentrate on the task in front of you. You may have memory problems, overwhelming sadness, or everyday addictions such as caffeine in order to cope. 
 
Not only do these “ruts” weaken your brain, but also your body! 
 
When your mind isn’t working at full capacity, you may experience headaches or catch infections easily. The mind and body have a unique connection, and when your mind isn’t at its peak, your body suffers. 
 
So, what does NeurOptimal® do to help?  
 
NeurOptimal® is one of the most highly developed forms of neurofeedback available. After 40 years of extensive research in neuroscience, the founders of the Zengar Institute – Dr. Valdeane Brown and Dr. Susan Cheshire Brown – discovered a safe, effective system that helps the brain function at its peak. This method directs environmental feedback through the underused areas of your brain, creating fresh neural pathways that allow your mind to regulate itself more efficiently. 
 
These experts have spent their life’s work to ensure that you get a neurofeedback system that works. Because with all our minds have to focus on each day, we all need our brains working at their best. 

So, What does that mean for you? 

Great question! Wouldn’t you like to know the great things you could accomplish by fully using your brain’s ability? Neurofeedback training activates untapped cognitive potential, allowing you to achieve goals that you’ve long since given up on. Can you imagine? By literally training your brain to be at its best, you’ll unlock more focus, energy, and productivity – no matter how well your mind is functioning now! It's similar to physical exercise for the body. No matter where your starting point is, with training you are giving yourself the opportunity to improve your functioning. 

In a nutshell, this means that you can forge new neural pathways, neurofeedback will prompt your mind to use every bit of its resources instead of settling into preformed patterns. And we could all benefit from a brain that works at its best.

What happens in a session?

Before we begin, one of our certified NeurOptimal® trainers may have you fill out a survey listing the complaints and/or challenges that have brought you into the office. The session take place in a quiet and comfortable room. Once you get comfortable, the trainer will place special sensors on the surface of  your head that will send your brain-wave patterns into the NeurOptimal® program’s software. A neurofeedback training experience is relaxing, enjoyable and typically lasts about 34 minutes. As the session starts, you will hear music play through headphones and watch relaxing geometric images gently move across a computer screen. You may experience occasional “skips” or interruptions in the music – this is the signal that alerts your brain to “reset” and optimize itself. NeurOptimal® does not  “push” the brain in any specific direction but alerts the brain of opportunities to heal itself.
