Neuro-feedback has helped me immensely. I did a lot of research and made a lot of phone calls before finding Sarah. She is absolutely amazing. She is understanding, kind, and responsible. Calm and serene. You can tell she actually cares about making a positive influence in someones life and not just a dollar. She is not pushy, and she is very informative. Competitive pricing, she could honestly charge way more. She keeps her clients because of her honesty, dependability, credibility, and care.

Latest reviews from a neurofeedback rental clients:

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.

– Morgan, San Diego

I was introduced to neurofeedback through the seminal book, The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel van der Kolk. Thereafter, I did a lot of research and was thrilled to find the convenient option to rent a NeurOptimal system from Sara to use at-home. Bonus - Neurofeedback Training's rental option saved me hundreds of dollars vs. a different provider's on-site clinic fees in my city (I'm not in CA). I trained regularly for 2.5 months (over 50 sessions) and am 100% satisfied with my investment.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT NEUROFEEDBACK

All you need to know about neurofeedback training


LA-neurofeedback-session-296060-edited

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a form of brain training uses EEG sensors to measure brainwave activity.  Feedback is given to the individual when the brainwaves change to allow resetting mental and emotional patterns. Watch our video >

What Neurofeedback Technology Do We Use? 

The system we use for sessions and rentals is called NeurOptimal. This second generation neurofeedback technology is fully automated and does not require any protocols (brain mapping, EEG Scan). Instead, it is the only dynamic neurofeedback that allows the individual’s brain to be the expert deciding how to use the information rather than an expert trainer setting protocols to force change.  Thus allowing change to happen organically and minimizing unwanted effects.

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback therapy focuses on unconscious learning in order to promote self-regulation.  During neurofeedback, the brain is learning about its habitual electrical activity. Electrical activity is one of the two ways the brain communicates internally; the second language is chemical activity.  

Neural pathways are connected via electrical impulses going down through the neurons (like stomping down the path),and chemicals allow the message to continue from one neuron to the next.  Negative habitual patterns--such as waking up too early, not being able to focus on the task at hand and  worrying--are reflected in our electrical brainwave activities.  Unfortunately, the brain builds these negative pathways automatically, even though they are not helpful. In fact, they are signs of disregulation.  Through the neurofeedback program we learn how to find better patterns. 

When you decide to try neurofeedback brain training, you are addressing these old brain habits of well-worn stress responses.  The training helps you learn how to be responsive to your current needs and goals, rather than react with old habits that have been stomped in the snow. 

Is Neurofeedback Effective?

With neurofeedback sessions the individual learns to reset those negative patterns, allowing them to better manage sleep, emotional regulation and improve cognitive fitness such as focus and concentration.  

The immediate benefits from neurofeedback sessions, typically noticed after one to three sessions include feeling calmer, more focused and for many, getting better sleep. More benefits >

How long does neurofeedback take to work?

Everyone is different. Some report immediate results (from subtle to more apparent changes in behavior, sleep habits or emotional regulation) and some may require more training in order to notice shifts. Typically, we recommend 8-10 sessions to start with and after a set of 8 sessions assess if you are benefitting from the training.  
 

When coming in for a session or if renting a home system. We recommend everyone who is training to fill out the checklist so that they can observe the areas where they want to improve. 

We ask all clients, regardless of whether they are renting or training in-office, to fill this checklist out every 8-10 sessions. 

This checklist is key because 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. 

These reporting tools also improve self-awareness.  One of our goals as neurofeedback coaches is to help clients notice how they are feeling. Noticing subtle changes helps you get ahead of your feelings, and maintain a sense of focus and calm.  Self-awareness is the first step to success, because it 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.

 
We also have seen that consistency is key when starting with neurofeedback training. Read our blog post to learn how to get the most benefit from neurofeedback > 
 

How Many Neurofeedback Sessions Do I Need?

Since 2011, we have helped thousands of clients complete successful brain training. The key to success is to not approach your training goals in terms of number of sessions completed or how your brain might look differently on a graph.  The best results come from using self-assessments rather than the number of neurofeedback sessions. 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.  As well, clients develop self-awareness by tracking shifts in their experience week by week.  This practice leads to optimized and individualized training that fit our clients' needs. Rather than follow a prescribed amount, clients discover how many sessions are right for them and their children. Continue reading > 
 

Is Neurofeedback Covered by Insurance?

Individual health insurance companies determine what is covered and it varies policy to policy.  Reach out to your insurance to inquire. The cost of renting a home neurofeedback device is approximately the same price as many co-pays, approximately $40/session. At this moment we don't take insurance for in-office sessions in Pasadena.

Is Neurofeedback Safe? Is NeurOptimal FDA Approved? 

Yes. It is safe. The FDA has approved it as a General Wellness Device, which means it is safe for consumers to use without the oversight of a healthcare provider. The NeurOptimal neurofeedback system is not harmful and is 100% non-invasive. Nothing is added to your system.

What are the side effects of neurofeedback?

The NeurOptimal system has a non-invasive design.  It does not force changes in brainwave patterns but rather works by giving the brain the millisecond-by-millisecond feedback about its maladaptive patterns so the individual brain can utilize the information to improve its own functioning.

An analog for the feedback process is seeing your reflection in a mirror. If you see your head is tilted you'll most likely automatically straighten it. NeurOptimal alerts the brain that it is doing something and each brain will decide how to use the information it is presented with, in order to optimize its own functioning.

The most common effect after a neurofeedback session is that clients report feeling calmer and relaxed.  When clients have poor sleep hygiene and are exhausted they will often report feeling tired at the end of the session. This shift is a result of increased awareness and the client shifting out of a stress response. We coach these clients to pay attention to this shift as a communication of the need for more sleep.
