What Are The Benefits With NeurOptimal®
In this video, Jenny explains how training with the NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback System helped alleviating her stress levels and agonizing thoughts and some other surprising shifts. Jenny trained consistently for a six months period (twice per month) at our NYC Clinic.
How Does NeurOptimal® Work?
Neurofeedback Training with the NeurOptimal® system reorganizes the brain to operate more efficiently. It is used by thousands of people to bring more ease, joy and peace into their lives.
The NeurOptimal® system is a non-invasive brain training method that teaches self-regulation and helps build resilience and flexibility. This advanced brain training technology -- developed in part by, NASA-level engineers -- works by triggering what’s called the orienting response, which is the brain’s ability to sense change in the environment and take in new information about what is different.
What Results Can I Expect With Neurofeedback Training?
There is no standard answer to these questions because everyone’s central nervous system is unique. While we cannot predict what your brain will do with the information it receives from the neurofeedback therapy training, we can offer a few guidelines.
Clients describe after a neurofeedback session feeling clearer, calmer, lighter or brighter for a few hours after the session – a feeling that typically will last through the week, from one session to the next (weekly sessions being the most common). Eventually, this new-centred way of becoming their “new normal”. Only if they get thrown off by a negative event - a bad day at work, chemicals, a knock on the head - might they drop into the way they felt before. But generally, they will not dip as deeply into emotional discomfort and will more than likely bounce back from challenging situations much more quickly and easily. Here's one of our client's feedback.
“The process is deceptively simple — being hooked up to a neurofeedback device and sitting quietly. Afterwards, there’s a subtle but powerful shift in feeling — I feel more present, and relaxed, and have greater well-being. It’s been very effective in working with my anxiety.”

NeurOptimal® Reviews - How Effective is Neurofeedback?
Here’s a recent review from one of our rental clients:
My husband and I are experiencing wonderful, unexpected progress. I'm also reading a book called, “The Body Keeps the Score” about trauma, ADD and PTSD and ways to heal. Science made fascinating! Chapter 19, "Applied Neuroscience," is all about neurofeedback and the amazing way the brain can heal its electrical pathways and grow new ones through Neurofeedback. This gives me so much hope.
I rented a Neurofeedback machine for 3 months and have been very pleased with the results. I feel calmer and more focused. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity. Sara and Kate were wonderful and responsive. Thank you very much.
J. Rented a system 2021 for 3 months
The sessions are going well. Thank you for the reminder. I'm noticing some changes in my focus and anxiety and in my son's response as well, which is great. We will definitely make sure we do the recommended minimum. I have been training nightly during the week since it seems to work with my schedule. I want to mention that my dreams have been very vivid lately as well.

Commonly Asked Questions About Neurofeedback
Training with The NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback System
Are There Any Side Effects?
No, training with the dynamical NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system does not create side effects. It's 100% non-invasive brain training. The system purely gives feedback to the brain about it's moment-to-moment brain wave activity and it will start to correct the ones that are maladaptive. Learn more about the system we use and a comparison chart of other neurofeedback systems.
Can I Train Neurofeedback When I’m Pregnant?
Yes, absolutely. One important aspect to know about true neurofeedback devices such as NeurOptimal is that nothing is added to your system and therefore it's 100% safe. To learn how it works, and what sets NeurOptimal apart from other neurofeedback devices, see this page. Also, our New York trainer, Heather, had neurofeedback while pregnant. Watch this video of her discussing the positive effects.
How Much Does Neurofeedback Cost And What Are My Training Options?
With NeurOptimal® you can rent on a monthly basis, schedule an in-person session or buy the equipment.
If renting your own system, the monthly cost range from $650 and up. The difference is that you can train multiple people and cost per session is then as low as $40 per session. Minimum rental is one month and can be extended as long as you wish. Renting a home system is the most cost-effective option, especially for families or partners who want to train together.

You can also schedule a session at one of our locations. Cost per session range from $125-160 depending on location.
The equipment is also available for purchase. Cost range from 7K and up. We also guide health care professionals setting up neurofeedback for their clinics, Learn more.
