What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is more than just a workout for your brain. Every thought, emotion and physiological function is initiated, created and managed by your brain directing bioelectricity through your central nervous system. As your brain learns (becomes more efficient), function improves, and the potential is that any symptoms can reduce. When you ‘train your brain’, you improve its ability to adapt to changes and bounce back from negative or stressful events.
What do you Experience in a NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback session?
When you come in for a ‘brain training’ session, tiny sensors near your scalp and three clips on your ears will pick up the electrical activity of your brain. Our NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system interacts with your central nervous system in a totally safe, non-invasive, and relaxing way. When your brain activity shows signs of turbulence, the music within the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback software is momentarily interrupted. This subtle cue alerts your brain that it is operating inefficiently. With repeated training sessions, the brain learns to ‘reset’ itself and function more smoothly.
NeurOptimal® is very different from other forms of neurofeedback.
Training with Dynamical Neurofeedack® is brain training that is a true paradigm shift forward. NeurOptimal® uses unique filtering and ongoing targeting of a broad range of frequencies, rather than focusing on narrow ranges chosen by the trainer. This is technology that is only available with NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback®.
That means we are going a big step beyond neurofeedback as it is done by linear neurofeedback systems. (That’s all other systems.) We won’t be making an educated guess about what your brain needs. Instead, the system will give feedback to your brain in real time, moment by moment, alerting it to come back to the present precisely when it makes a shift. The brain then has the opportunity to look at whether that shift is a useful, desirable one — or not. Your brain learns from those opportunities and uses what it learns to optimize itself toward your potential.
This feedback is information that your brain doesn’t get anywhere else in life. The brain uses what it learns to optimize itself. Less than desirable patterns can just… drop away.
Do the changes last?
Typically, yes, because the brain likes running more efficiently and more comfortably. That becomes the new default and we become better able to respond to life. It’s common to see changes such as improved mental acuity, more emotional fitness, better sleep habits, more contentment, improved self-esteem, and better stress management.
Is it safe?
Yes, because there are no protocols pushing your brain in predetermined directions. Your brain is the expert on what is right for you, not the trainer.
Your brain is the most complex system on Earth, and it is very skilled at organizing itself on your behalf. Would you like to find out what that looks like for you?

This is a safe and non-invasive technology
“NeurOptimal® provides information; your brain decides”.
*NeurOptimal® has been designated a General Wellness Product by the FDA.”
*The American Pediatric Academy has endorsed Neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.
*The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Neurofeedback for relaxation training.
People who come for neurofeedback are people who want something to change in their lives. They are people who want to be their best selves.
NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback® provides information that allows your brain to gently optimize itself. The way we find out exactly how that looks for you is by training your brain. When presented with the information to better itself your brain instinctively changes for greater efficiency and balance. Your system makes all the choices. In my 5 years as a trainer, it’s been rare for a client to leave unsatisfied.
