What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal®’s EEG biofeedback or neurofeedback system is a powerful technology that can greatly enhance your well-being and help you get the most out of life.
Brain training can unlock untapped cognitive potential and help you achieve long-held goals and dreams. Biofeedback has been around for almost 40 years, but in the past we didn't have the technology for it to become practical to use. In the past, a neurofeedback
interface would require a room full of computers and technicians. Today, Zengar Institute, Inc. has created a simple, interactive software that harnesses this powerful technology in an easy-to-use program called NeurOptimal® that loads onto a laptop computer. Because neurofeedback has been time-tested, it is also very safe. Respected institutions such as the U.S. FDA and the American Academy of Pediatrics have endorsed neurofeedback.
Who does it help?
Individuals of all ages! Children and adults both can benefit from their brain working
What does it help with?
* Physical, cognitive, and emotional issues
* Brain fitness, resilience, and improved academic performance
What to expect in a session?
In a quiet room, you will sit in a comfortable chair and sensors will be placed on your head
that sends information about your brain waves to the NeurOptimal® computer system.
Earphones play relaxing music in your ears. The session lasts around 40 minutes.
Periodically you will hear "skips" in the music, this is the signal that prompts the brain to optimize itself.
These pauses invite your central nervous system to pull away from this less-than-ideal path it was on.
This will repeat over and over until the natural self-correction becomes your new normal and your brain functions more efficiently, effectively and comfortably. When your functioning more efficiently, you sleep better, are less stressed, more focused and feel better despite challenges that are ongoing in the outside world around you.
At the end of a session, you will most likely feel less stressed and more mentally clear. It is unlikely you will experience any negative after-effects as NeurOptimal® does not artificially “push” the brain in any specific direction. Many users experience deeper sleep and vivid dreams after their very first session.
How does it work?
The NeurOptimal® proprietary neurofeedback system is a highly personalized brain training software that prompts the central nervous system to help make the best use of your brain’s neural resources.
Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body. Much of our suffering comes from pervasive recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotionally stranded or cognitively “stuck”.
Neurofeedback prompts the brain to draw from its existing resources and pull itself out of these mental “ruts”. The result is a more open and positive mindset in which obstacles are more manageable and problems more resolvable.
Much like a mirror that promotes self-correction, NeurOptimal®’s proprietary neurofeedback program monitors your brain waves and then provides “feedback” to your central nervous system about what it has just done. When the software detects a tremor in your brain wave pattern, it sends an audible signal that encourages the brain to “reset” and self-correct.
Does it work for everyone?
The majority of the individuals do find benefit in this training technique. The degree of benefit changes depending on the presenting problems, the expectations of the individual or family and the environment in which the person lives.
