Neurofeedback Therapy

Peak Health offers groundbreaking neurofeedback therapy that uses sound or “feedback” to help the brain regulate its activity. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive system that is safe and effective for literally anyone. With NeurOptimal, you don’t need special training or time-consuming visits to a clinic to use it. If you want to improve your brain function, NeurOptimal may be what you’re looking for.


How Does NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Work?

NeurOptimal is a safe and easy-to-use system. You may even find the sessions relaxing. Operation is simple enough and involves ear clips and two sensors that you place on your scalp. The machine picks up electrical impulses from your brain as you relax and listen to music or watch a video. Sessions should take place in a quiet location where your brain won’t be distracted by extra noise or activity.


You may notice the music or video briefly pausing from time to time. That’s what NeurOptimal does when it senses an unwanted change in brain activity. In fact, the pauses are so minuscule that you may not notice them at all. The break in the music gives the brain a chance to organize itself and return to optimal activity. Eventually, the brain trains itself to work more efficiently without the aid of the machine.


Other than learning how to attach the ear clips and sensors, you don’t have to figure out a thing. Just sit back and let NeurOptimal and your brain do the work.


How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of sessions is totally up to you, but you’ll probably get the best results after about 20 sessions. That’s how long it usually takes for the brain to learn new patterns of activity. You may even notice an improvement after six sessions. Depending on the severity of the condition, however, some individuals may need up to 40 sessions. More sessions may be required, for example, for Parkinson’s disease than for improved concentration at work.


As you go through the stresses of daily life, you may find that you need maintenance sessions. Some people find that weekly or monthly sessions help keep their brain in shape. Remember, the brain knows how to use the information it gets from NeurOptimal. You don’t have to worry about overdoing it. You can even use it while you work, if you are in a quiet environment with minimal physical activity.


Will NeurOptimal Work for Me?

NeurOptimal works for anyone who has a brain. You may be struggling with mental health issues, or you may want to optimize your performance at your job or on the athletic field. Maybe you just want to feel calm and at peace. Treatments have a beneficial effect on a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Headaches
  • Depression

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Parkinson’s Disease

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Stroke

  • Seizures

  • Sleep Disorders

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Every brain has the ability to learn and organize itself. NeurOptimal works directly with the brain, so the treatments will benefit your brain in a way that is best for you. Your brain figures out what it needs. After the recommended number of sessions, you will notice a change in how you feel, whether it’s mental sharpness, reduced worry, or a good night’s sleep.


Do I Need a Prescription for NeurOptimal?

The beauty of NeurOptimal is that you don’t need a prescription, diagnosis, or expertise to use it. It’s completely safe because the brain itself determines the outcome, without the influence of a doctor or technician. During treatments, the brain accepts only the information that it can use, so there is no danger of overloading or misusing the machine.


That’s why anyone can use NeurOptimal anytime. You decide when to start treatments and when to stop. You don’t have to make any kind of decision or adjust any settings at the time of your treatments. You don’t need an in-depth knowledge of how the brain works because the brain itself makes the decisions and organizes the information. Anyone can use it without special approval, from 18-month-old babies to senior citizens.


What’s the Difference Between NeurOptimal and Conventional Neurofeedback?

The main difference between NeurOptimal and conventional neurofeedback is the view of how the brain works. Regular neurofeedback usually involves visits to a clinic for diagnosis and a treatment plan. The practitioner uses brain mapping software to diagnose problems in brain activity. Sensors are moved to various parts of the scalp.


A regular neurofeedback practitioner monitors the patient’s progress and guides the exercises, essentially telling the brain what to do. The patient and practitioner set goals and periodically evaluate the patient’s progress.


NeurOptimal, on the other hand, lets the brain set its own goals and decide what it needs to do. The developers of this system believe that the brain has an innate ability to train and regulate itself when it receives the proper feedback. No practitioners, diagnoses, or guidance are needed because the brain in effect monitors itself.


By letting the brain decide what information it will use, NeurOptimal is an efficient and simple approach to neurofeedback. The developers believe that the brain is the best judge of what it needs, rather than a practitioner watching a computer screen.


Do the Benefits Last?

The more NeurOptimal sessions you have, the longer the results will last. Think of the brain like an athlete in training. Even if the athlete consistently performs well, they will need to repeat their training for peak conditioning. If they don’t train for a long time, their muscles “forget” and their performance is off.


Similarly, your brain may need refresher sessions, especially after a disrupting or traumatic life event. You may not have lost all the improvements from the original sessions, but you may feel that you’re not at your best. A few treatments are often all it takes to remind the brain of its optimal activity and to get back on track
