How it works

How does NeurOptimal® work?

NeurOptimal® mirrors your brain activities: Benefits are achieved through a series of NeurOptimal® training sessions where the brain is given information about its own function. Once the brain realizes it is watching itself work, as though looking in a mirror, it immediately begins to reorganize itself to attain a higher level of integration and adjusts back into stability. NeurOptimal® is based on the science of non-lineal dynamics in which the brain is seen as dynamical and changing, and with the right information the brain can optimize itself resulting greater flexibility, stability, adaptability, leading to greater resilience.

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback training

  • stops recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotionally stranded or cognitively “stuck”.
  • prompts the brain to draw from its existing resources and pull itself out of these mental “ruts” with the result of a more open and positive mindset in which obstacles are more manageable and problems more resolvable
  • works like a mirror that promotes self-correction
  • monitors your brain waves and then provides “feedback” to your central nervous system about what it has just done
  • when the software detects a instability in your brain wave pattern, it sends an audible signal that encourages the brain to “reset” and self-correct

During a Training Session – What happens with me?

In order for NeurOptimal software to function on the basis of your individual brain activity there will be a couple of sensors applied to your head.

In total thress sonsors are applied to your ears and two additonal ones on the right and left of your head. Application is done via a adhesion glue which is absolutely harmless and not hurting. The glue is easily removed afterwards. Your brain activitiy is measured via the sensors, similar to an EEG you may have exprienced before.

Important to know: There are no waves sent to your brain and the software is absolutely non-intrusive. The sensors are measuring electrical actitivity of your brain and are sending the information back to the software. The software uses these real time measurements and sends back feedback impulses via the music. So it is basically just the music that feeds back to you and that is the basis of the training.

Setting up the session

Prior to each session there will be an approximately 30 seconds zero-line measurement taken. During this time the adhesion of the sensors is checked. The result of this first measurement can be checked against the brain activities after the session. This way the trainer will be able to interpret the results of the individual session.

Controlling the results in your day to day life

When you decide to go through a NeurOptimal training is is important to set your personal goals at the beginning of the training series. At the same time you should document the results of change after each session and control the effects of the training. Questionnaires are available for documentation which you may also choose to filll in anonymously.

Important to know: Your brain possesses the ability to transform the training sessions into real life experience. You are not able to conciously control the effects but can naturally rely on the inheret wisdom of your central nervous system which is able to identify the most relevant results of each training session and retrack and intensify these in each following session.
