BENEFITS OF NEUROFEEDBACK
Neurofeedback provides a multitude of benefits for the brain, mind, and body. It trains the brain's use to have better cognitive functioning and emotional regulation. The approach to re-wiring the brain translates into increased overall brain performance and benefits that experienced over all areas of life from school and work, to family and friendships. In general, after a series of neurofeedback sessions, clients report overall improved wellbeing; better mood, more restful sleep and feeling less stress.

Who Can Benefit from NeurOptimal®?
The neurofeedback equipment we use at Neurofeedback Training Co. is called NeurOptimal. It is the worlds first and non-invasive brain training system 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.

Life changing Results with Neurofeedback
Many NeurOptimal clients report life changing results, and the results of the neurofeedback training can range from dramatic shifts to more gradual progression. The more you train (like going to the gym) the more you will find stability and and emotional resiliency.
Here’s a review from a client who rented a unit for two months and had life changing results:
Neurofeedback has totally changed my life. Within the first couple of sessions I could tell there was a shift in my mood and I had less feelings worry and anguish, feeling overwhelmed, and now after 18 or so sessions, I feel like myself again and have not felt this stable in my adult life. I'm so grateful for this service and wish more people knew about it!

Why NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Is Safe
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training is safe for anyone to use. Why? Because nothing is being added to your brain. The training works by alerting your automatic functioning part of the brain to its own actions (this part controls the fear response, flight/flight/freeze, sleep, attentiveness, executive functioning, etc.) so it can ‘see’ its own maladaptive patterns. Because the brain is designed to be responsive to new information, when the neurofeedback system alerts the brain to it’s own functioning the brain will naturally tweak itself to be the most efficient and effective response. It’s as if the brain, upon being alerted to it’s own behaviour says “hey, I’m about to produce a stress response when I’m sitting in a safe space. That’s not efficient or an appropriate response. I’m going to change what I’m doing.”
Why Choose NeurOptimal®?
The way global information based neurofeedback works is giving your brain intelligent information about itself so that it can optimize it’s functioning. That’s how it can be diagnostically agnostic. Basically, NeurOptimal neurofeedback is teaching the brain to be smarter, learning to come into the present to gather info before it makes a decision rather than doing what’s habitual— worry being a common brain habit.

Video Review from a Teen
What happens when you train long term? This is Olivia discussing her neurofeedback results after using the NeurOptimal® brain training system on and off for ten years. (Olivia began neurofeedback sessions at 8 years old).
How many NeurOptimal sessions are needed?
It’s not a matter of need but of want! A report showing 1.2 million neurofeedback sessions clients indicate significant benefits after 11-20 sessions. Neurofeedback clients, on average, train for 15-25 sessions. Clients with multiple issues often want to train more and about 20% of our clients choose to purchase a system to use over years while their children are in school, or while the want the added support. It’s a choice and we always recommend people train for as long as they are seeing benefit.
Will My Results Last?
In this short video, Natalie N. Baker, LMHC, Advanced NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback trainer answers one of our most frequently asked questions we get from our renter clients: Will the results of NeurOptimal® brain training last?
Are there any negative side effects of neurofeedback? Can It Make Me Feel Worse?
Natalie Baker, LMHC and Advanced NeurOptimal® Trainer answers the question why some people may feel "worse" after a neurofeedback session when sleep deprived.
How do I know if neurofeedback is working?
Neurofeedback training with NeurOptimal is a learning process. You get results because you are actively learning, even if you are not doing the learning consciously. So much like reading, once your brain knows how to read, it can’t “not know”. Your brain doesn’t forget. It may get rusty, but the effects of learning remain throughout your lifetime.
Our clients see better results when they use the self-reporting checklist as a guidepost. They benefit in two ways. They see from real data, that changes are happening.
We ask all clients, regardless of whether they are renting or training in-office, to fill this checklist out every 8-10 sessions to compare progress. Below is a Checklist from a client after 3 sessions weekly for a month.
Why the Checklist is important:
- It gives a numerical value to your goals and allows you to track your changes over time. Seeing the numbers change is a sign of progress! During the first 8-10 sessions, numbers typically drop by 3. For example, if "Difficulty concentrating" or "Often worry" starts at a value of 9, it is often reported to be a 6 after 10 sessions.
- Improves self-awareness which is the first step to success. It is key to identifying which tools will help re-regulate the mind, whether it is a neurofeedback session, going to be early, or getting to the gym. Noticing subtle changes helps you get ahead of your feelings, and maintain a sense of focus and calm.
Can neurofeedback training be harmful? 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.

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. Watch this video of a therapist who did neurofeedback while pregnant.
