Why use NeurOptimal®?

  • Do you have trouble relaxing after work?
  • Does it take you more than 15 minutes to fall asleep?
  • Do you struggle to focus on a specific task during the day?

The human brain is the center of our central nervous system (CNS); it is a sophisticated command and control center responsible for controlling all the other systems in your body. It receives and processes information from your body and the environment, processes and stores information, and formulates appropriate responses.

All of the things you do in a day require different states of consciousness and awareness: from being alert and focused all the way to being asleep. Great flexibility is required to shift states seamlessly from one task or activity to another, continuously throughout the day. The heightened state of awareness required to deal with increasingly busy and stressful lives can make focusing on cognitive tasks more difficult and is obviously not the best state for relaxation or sleep.

A lack of brain flexibility and the ability to shift states easily can adversely affect your performance and your mood, and leave you feeling drained and/or anxious at the end of the day. That’s why brain resilience and flexibility are so important.

NeurOptimal® trains your brain to be more flexible and resilient. Without pushing it in any specific direction, the NeurOptimal Neurofeedback system interacts with your CNS in a way that improves neural plasticity. A mind that is more flexible adapts and responds to changes in your environment. The more easily your brain adjusts to changes encountered in a normal busy day, the better you feel.

Most of us only have a very limited number of states of awareness available to us, and are rarely able to access states of consciousness that utilize higher frequencies. A truly resilient mind allows you to respond appropriately to an increased range of situations and environments. NeurOptimal can help build brain resilience, or increase your ability to “bounce back” from a negative event.

Negative feelings associated with an argument or bad day at work can hover hours after the actual event has passed. The destructive effect of nervousness, repetitive or self-critical thinking is magnified even more in severe events such as physical or emotional trauma or for example the death of a loved one or the loss of one’s job.

A truly flexible mind allows you to respond appropriately to an increased range of situations and environments. Instead of staying stuck in the reactivity of stressful or traumatic events, the resilient and flexible brain will shift states more easily and quickly allowing you to feel happier and enjoy a more profound sense of peace.
