Why trust Neurofeedback Training Co?
I started with in-office sessions in NYC years ago and also rented a system for a few months. I had a great experience both with in-office sessions and renting the system. Recently I decided to rent again but went with a different NeurOptimal provider. Unfortunately, my rental experience wasn't that great... I ordered 22 sessions but got locked out after 19 sessions. Then it took over a week for me to get up and running again, and the company was slow to respond. After renting from this other company, I realized that you are much more specialized and detail-oriented. You are not just out there to make money; you were always available when I needed help!
I almost couldn't believe how helpful the team at Neurofeedback Training Co. is. From my very first session, they made me feel safe and prepared for a change! After having a few sessions at the office I decided to rent a machine to train at home. I would do it again in a heart beat. Highly recommend it
I recently had a concussion and could not believe how disoriented I felt. After days of feeling sick and fatigued, I made my way to Neurofeedback Training Co. It was like night and day! After just my first session I felt significantly more grounded and centered, more in control of the connection between my mind and body. Head injuries are quite scary, so it was a huge relief to have such an enjoyable and effective path to recovery. I continued with the neurofeedback training sessions once per week and was amazed to see improvements in my sleeping pattern, and my general focus. I highly recommend Neurofeedback Training Co. This training is for those who want to be focused, relaxed, and clear-minded.

A Family Transformed After 2 months of NeurOptimal Home Program
Neurofeedback was an amazing choice for our family. We have a few traumas in our history, and using brain training was like putting on a new prescription of glasses; everything is clearer, and you wondered how you were seeing before!

Concussion Recovery Support: A Sceptic New Yorker Gets Back to Work!
I work on the computer all day and was having pretty excruciating headaches and I had light sensitivity to the screen. About 10 days into it somebody recommended trying neurofeedback and to be honest I didn't have a lot of faith it would work, but I was also out of options. Around the second day of using it (I was doing x3 sessions a day) I noticed that my sensitivity to light was decreasing and my headaches were less severe by about 10%. I've been using it three to four times a day now and over the course of 10 days my light sensitivity has decreased dramatically, and my headaches are almost gone. Also, the staff is really helpful - I had some issues the first day and they helped me sort it out in about 10 minutes. Again really grateful to be healing, thanks everyone!

Mother's Stress Reduced and Teenage Son Sleeping Again! 4 Month Neurofeedback Program
Mary's Gift to Herself: Training to Get Focused and Organized!
I'm now into my third month using the home neurofeedback rental and although it's expensive for me, I am giving this third month as a birthday gift to myself. I am so grateful to have found this. The changes are beyond my expectation! I have always been a messy person, and was on the brink of loosing my job for being so disorganized. In the second week after training, I felt an urge to organize my work space and have kept it neat and clean ever since. My boss even took notice. My adult 22 -year-old son also have had results. Although he was a lot more reluctant to do the sessions at first and would only do two sessions per week for the first two months (I would do 3-4 per week). He has had a difficult childhood which reflects in his behavior today. At times he is so stuck in his worry and fear that some days he couldn't get out of his bed! Now after two months of training he seems more cheerful, more communicative, and overall more confident. I am so relieved! The other day I was so surprised to come home to an organized kitchen, he had not only cleaned the kitchen but also his closet – without me asking! Eventually I would love to buy a system as I know this could be a great long-term support for my whole family for life! I hope one day I will. Thank you for the guidance throughout these months. Couldn't be happier!

Reviews from Home Training During Pandemic Years (2020-2022)
Overactive Fight/Flight Stress Response Calms Down! (3 month program)
The NeurOptimal machine has been life changing! So much so that I recommended it to clients and friends. Amy and Natalie have been so helpful with any questions or concerns. Amazing help. I’ve always looked for ways to get me out of my permanent flight or fight mode…I needed an adjunct to therapy that I could do at home. It keeps me in the present and helps with old stuck patterns that I can’t talk my way out of…they move through me. A personal example is an old belief that I have of myself that I’m clumsy and uncoordinated. I used the machine with intention to heal that wound and a friend said I improved markedly and I felt different…my body and brain were working together for my healing. Was not able to shift that with just therapy alone. Very happy with the NeurOptimal machine.

Advice: Be Consistent
We had a great experience, machine worked very well. This was exceptional and I would highly recommend. Just be very consistent when using the machine so you can get the best results.

Stressed-out Family Finds Relief!
My family of three used NeurOptimal for two months. I had about 35 sessions. It is amazing. My stress and worry was dramatically reduced. And we all felt better overall. Better able to deal with stress. Better overall family interactions. We only stopped renting because we plan to purchase to use as a tool for our ongoing wellness

Results for Elderly Mother Stroke Recovery
Everything seems to be going well. I have my mom doing 5 sessions a week. Today is her ninth session. Seeing some nice improvements in her muscle movement and control. Her muscle/skeletal control has been progressively decreasing She had developed a tendency to lean very acutely to her right side. I and my Dad were very concerned as it was creating problems in various ways. Since using the neurofeedback that problem has been completely resolved. She now sits up straight again! That's the most significant improvement so far. . . It's a BIG WIN!!!!!!!! Couldn't be happier with that development. She also seems to be developing better overall temperament and cognitive clarity. I'm looking forward to progressive improvements as we continue with the sessions. Without a doubt, neurofeedback is a brain training modality that my mother desperately needed and one that nicely couples with the intense diet of nootropics and supplements I have her taking. Thanks for checking in on us!

Tinnitus Client Regains Her Vibrancy!
I rented a home system for a month for my aunt who was struggling with ringing in ears so severely that she was unable to leave her house. At the end of the month, she is back to her vibrant, busy and social self. I feel like it saved her life. She seems to think she cured herself somehow and doesn’t recognize the impact this had on her. I recommend she use it for another month or two, but she feels so great now she didn’t feel she needed it.

Calmer and Les Anxious
This was a wonderful experience! We rented a unit for 6 weeks during the coronavirus pandemic and used it as a family. I noticed that I was much calmer and less reactive inspite of all the anxiety around me. It was very easy to do and I started seeing it as relaxing "me time". My husband said he was feeling more focused and my son said he "felt happier." We will definitely be renting on a yearly basis for "boosters". I highly recommend this if you feel anxious, reactive or have some internal tension you want to work through. =)
–C.L, Los Angeles, California. Yelp review
Our family of three had a great rental and neurofeedback training experience. Being able to speak with someone personally and get our questions answered so quickly was very nice. All of us benefited from the training sessions ; overall I feel more relaxed, procrastinate less and am in a more cheerful mood, my teenage daughter seem also less moody and she doesn't feel so anxious around school and tests and my husband says he sleeps deeper. Thanks again!
– A., Washington State
I’m enjoying the ability to do training on my own schedule and think it’s helping improve me sleep, which will hopefully help with other issues in having 😊 thank you!

My whole family trained for the month of February of 2022. My two young twin boys witch focus challenges enjoyed it a lot and we saw a significant improvement especially around homework . My wife who suffers from long-covid ailments noticed a positive change as well in her overall wellbeing. We'll re-rent again in 4 months.

I rented the NeurOptimal neurofeedback system for multiple months during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and it was a helpful addition to my rotation of other mental/somatic wellbeing tools. The at-home system was easy to use and I noticed a marked improvement in my adaptiveness and overall wellness over the months that I used it.

Neurofeedback Reviews From Parents
Seth in California ended up purchasing a system after seeing results in himself and two children:
I rented Neuroptimal mainly for helping my son in relaxing and focusing on tasks. Sara was kind and very patient in explaining about the product and answering all my questions. She suggested that everyone would benefit from the use of the system. We rented the system for a month. Both my kids loved the Neuroptimal sessions and felt relaxed after every session. I myself felt noticeable improvements in memory, eg. remembering names and recalling words in conversations.
We finally decided to buy Neuroptimal system to be able to reap long term benefits. For the entire purchasing process, Natalie was super helpful. She was prompt in responding to all my emails. The support was exceptional throughout the process.

"I rented the neurofeedback training kit for my son and I for one month and experienced profound results. The results I saw from 1 month of neurofeedback training was equivalent to 1 year of all the tools I use combined. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking to be a better person and transcend the patterns of their past."

Michael and Tracey, a married couple who trained together for two months:
"My wife and I rented the neurofeedback home kit for two months during the first coronavirus pandemic lockdown in Los Angeles, and we have both noticed differences, big and small. Personally, it has been easier to focus, and I find myself being able to stop negative thought patterns in their tracks, when those same thoughts used to spiral out of control and usually ruin my day/week. It's a subtle change, but it is certainly noticeable, and has definitely made an impact on my mental wellbeing. My wife has noticed a lighter, improved mood and is falling asleep faster. We've also both been less reactive and more able to access our "logical brains," which has brought a wonderful sense of ease into our lives. Overall, we'd recommend the program and working with Sara, and we plan to do some booster sessions in the future."

Nancy, Sleep and Stress Improved :
“I rented a device for 2 months It was easy to set up as they have a book included and videos online that explain how to connect the EEG electrodes and run the session. Within a few sessions, I felt less lethargic throughout the day. My sleep also got better (falling a sleep faster), and I would wake up with less “grogginess”.
Also, my stress levels throughout the day dropped (but it still can come up during stressful times, but I am learning to work on that with mindfulness techniques!). I am looking to rent again in the future when I can afford it and give time for these past 2 months of brain training to synchronize with my life.
I can highly recommend NeurOptimal® and friends of mine who have just started doing it also have been having good results. One of my friends had issues with traditional QEEG neurofeedback and she found NeurOptimal® to be much gentler and relaxing!”

May, a mom in Florida, explaining how it helped Ben, her 16-year-old son with emotional regulation. (The family rented a unit first and then decided to buy a system).
"In the beginning the benefits of the training would last for a bit, but then revert back. However, after 8 sessions it lasted for 2 days. After session 11, I noticed a significant improvement - he came downstairs later in the day and said he was just able to sit and work on a project he had been avoiding for 2 days. He’s now been getting himself up in the morning by 9am to work on a song writing instead of sleeping until 12pm and being mad at himself later. Also, he's been able to make himself go to bed at a reasonable hour. Other changes I have noticed with him are that he is softer, more open, far less easily irritated, and is starting to seek out conversation and connection with us. Yesterday after he told me about being able to focus more I was amazed. When he left the room I sat on the couch and cried from relief because I realized he could now potentially have quality relationships and attachments. This is definitely a game changer. I am sold."
May, Miami, Florida
Lashona, mother in California rented a system for three generations of family members:
"Hi - I'm happy to share my own experience as I got better results than I expected. I have a toddler that had trouble going to sleep at night. Every night at 10 pm, she started crying out loud and couldn't stop until 1 am. She used to take a break and start crying all over again around 4 am lol. 2 weeks after initiating the neurofeedback therapy, she started going to bed around 9 pm and eventually 8 pm. Sometimes she used to fall asleep during the therapy. I have another child that was getting poor grades at school. He had trouble focusing and critical thinking was a challenge for him. He started the therapy as well. His grades are improving and he loves participating in class now. Finally, my mom. She didn't have energy to do anything around the house. I told her about the neurofeedback therapy and at first she didn't believe in it. When she saw the little one going to sleep earlier, she decided to give it a try. She said that she started feeling better after 2 sessions. Now she gets up every morning and spends more time with us. Thank you for coming up with this beautiful technology and making it available families in need like mine. You definitely changed our lives. As a main caregiver, I really want to thank you for making our lives easier and more enjoyable. You guys were definitely an option that we didn't know about. I wish we would've done it long time ago. Thank you again.

Frank, a teacher with teenage kids training together:
"I rented a unit for six weeks and did sessions every other day, as did my 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son. I primarily rented to the unit for my children, but decided to also use it myself. It was easy to set up and use. My children did around 20 training sessions and I did 25. I noticed my daughter became more relaxed and balanced and my son was more energetic and verbally expressive. I also felt a shift in myself toward being more relaxed and able to handle challenges. Besides parenting I am a teacher, so being able to stay present and at ease during chaos is super important and I notice a nice change in this regard. Overall, I believe it was worthwhile to rent the unit and we achieved some positive shifts in our family."

Amy, a mom, and her two sons:
"I decided to try neurofeedback after a friend told me how it helped her and suggested it to help me manage stress. After my first session, I felt relaxed and took a nap for the first time in years and slept soundly that night (I guess my brain needed sleep!). After a few more sessions, I noticed a subtle shift, mostly an increased ability to focus. I brought my boys, ages 7 and 9, in for a session. They both said they felt relaxed after and I noticed too that they were calmer and happier."

A psychology student discovery after training while studying
"As a psychology student, I know how important it is to keep my brain resilient and flexible in order to effectively respond to various situations. Luckily, Neurofeedback enabled me to achieve this target. To be honest, I didn't see immediate results after 1-2 sessions like most of the users do, but I did see the difference after 3 sessions. I found that my working memory and quality of sleep have been greatly improved. More importantly, I like how this brain training enhances my cognitive processing speed and executive function. Especially, I feel that I am less hesitant and take more timely actions than before when facing certain situations that require quick responses."

NYC Therapists Review after one month of sessions
"After just three NeurOptimal sessions, I'm feeling more focused and clear. As a mental health professional, I initially felt hesitant to try something external to assist my cognitive process, but I'm amazed at the immediacy of the results. The NeurOptimal Neurofeedback system seems to offers a shift by working with the areas that govern attention, a key component to both analytic and emotional processing. Based on my own experience, I highly recommend as a tool and supplement to therapy."
– Janet, NY (Rented a Home System for 2 months)
"After about a month of my weekly, sometimes twice-weekly summer neurofeedback therapy sessions, I was feeling more relaxed, the tension was releasing in my body, but also in my mind. I was focused and alert, but not in the usual hyper-vigilant way I had grown accustomed to as a stressed city dweller."

I have had 5 sessions out of 10 to date. Amy has been very caring and is very knowledgeable. I love the location right on Union Square Park. So far I am calmer, am sleeping better, have a better sense of well-being, and better mental clarity, concentration, and cognitive function. I look forward to seeing additional improvements as I complete the remainder of my sessions.

An Art Therapist and Meditation Teacher in Los Angeles shares her experience
"I must say, I was skeptical at first. Having a background in psychology, I was wary of Neurofeedback. Well, at least 15 sessions later, I am sold! I find my concentration levels improving, ability to understand and retain information while studying has increased, and I have more natural and restful sleep cycles---all adding up to a more relaxed feeling throughout my day. These sessions are well worth my time because in the long run, I feel much more clarity and am able to sharply assess where to focus my energy."

Joy's Own NeurOptimal® Review: Perform At Your Best
Clients who started With Traditional Protocol Neurofeedback and Switched to NeurOptimal at Neurofeedback Training Co.
So far the results have been fantastic and better than the traditional in-office neurofeedback therapy I tried prior to using NeurOptimal. I experience greater sense of peace and wellness as existing blocks/triggers/limiting beliefs melt away for good. I recommend meditation while using the system to maximize effects and also get plenty of sleep. This thing is a game changer!
– J.W., Los Angeles (Facebook Review)
"Before NeurOptimal®, I was doing a different type of neurofeedback (linear neurofeedback). First, I was on the wrong protocol and then the second protocol gave me horrible side effects. I feel so much safer doing NeurOptimal and loving my sessions. I'm already noticing improvement; more restful sleep, feeling less anxious in usual triggered situations. I am also noticing some subtle improvements in some issues that have given me trouble for a long time. I am excited to see what improvements more sessions will bring. Thanks for all of your help!"
– A., San Francisco, California
"I did 10 sessions of protocol neurofeedback before I found NeurOptimal. It was very expensive (around $3K with brain mapping and each session was $175) so I started to look for an alternative. I searched for neurofeedback near me and found Neurofeedback Training Co. and NeurOptimal. I came in for a session first to try it, and noticed a change right away, feeling more alert and focused and not so stressed out. I then rented for a month and loved it so much that I decided to I buy a unit. Yes, it costs alot but it's an investment for my wellbeing and is one of the best I wished I had known about NeurOptimal before!"

Connie, and Sofia, her 9-year-old daughter:
"I was looking for alternative ways for my daughter to help her improve focus. My daughter has now done 10 sessions (training once per week) at the office in NYC. I have seen her gain the ability to focus better, resolve issues better and take on tasks with less worry. I then personally began sessions of Neurofeedback for myself, hoping to reduce stress. I now feel a sense of distance from worrying and fearful thoughts and triggers that I previously did not have. This distance allows me to approach an issue from a tactical stand point, working toward resolution, rather than overwhelming me. Both of our sessions are still ongoing, and we look forward to future results."

"I was seeking a way to increase my focus and deal with stress around studying for my bar exam. I had read excellent reviews on the NeurOptimal system and was keen on giving it a try. I tried a few in-office sessions first in Pasadena with Sara to see how it would work for me, then decided to rent. I had two months of intense studying and the neurofeedback training really helped me to stay on track with my studies. I also noticed an increase in my overall wellbeing and mood. During the exam, while others were noticeable stressed-out, I on the other hand was calm and focused and more in-the moment. I'm very happy that I had the ability to train my brain while studying and would highly recommend this to anyone who want to boost their self-confidence and focus."

Reviews from Clients Who rented a NeurOptimal Home System
Sue, after a month of neurofeedback training:
"This is by far the best investment in self improvement I have ever made! I don't lose my temper at the drop of a pin anymore. I still get annoyed or upset, but I haven't yelled, felt overwhelmed, or flooded since I rented the system."
– Sue, California, (Yelp Review)
Tim, a 53-year-old sales executive, after training three times a week for two months:
"The first change that I noticed during the two months of renting the neurofeedback machine training consistently, was an improvement in word recall and articulation. I experienced this after the first 5-6 sessions. Since then I have also noticed improved attention and find myself getting 'lost' (in a good way) in my work a bit more often than I used to. I did not see an improvement in sleep patterns. I actually have been having more trouble with sleep than usual but I am attributing that to some other health issues in my life. However, I have noticed an increased resilience to lack of sleep. Losing a couple hours of sleep has far less of an impact on my productivity and quality of life than usual. I am not sure if this is a good thing or if it can be attributed to neurofeedback but it has been a clear and definite change worth noting. In addition to these observations, NeurOptimal sessions are just flat-out relaxing and enjoyable and I am glad I got the chance to give it a try! I have had 2 or 3 pretty serious bumps to my head in my life and based on the research I have come across, neurofeedback is one on the best ways to mitigate the downstream neurological effects."
– Tim, New Jersey
E, who started with in-office sessions and then rented a unit:
"After 4 sessions with a local Neurofeedback specialist to help with anxiety, I was sold on the potential benefits of the technology, but not yet ready to invest thousands of dollars (not to mention time away from work) to do a full treatment program. Hooray for Neurofeedback Training Co! With their home rental system I am saving quite a bit of money on the total cost of treatment AND I can do it from the comfort of my own home, after business hours. After a total of 12 sessions I am seeing a variety of positive benefits including falling asleep faster, decreased sensitivity to triggers, and a quicker recovery from bouts of anxious feelings. In general I feel more stable and "myself" which translates to the ability to be more present with my wife and son. Neurofeedback training with the NeurOptimal system has been a key tool for me in my journey of performance anxiety, and I look forward to each session. I can't wait to see where I'm at once I hit the 20 session mark."

John, and his teenage daughter rented for 2 months and saw results in emotional wellbeing and focus:
"I found you [Neurofeedback Training Co.] while doing some research on neurofeedback via Google. I originally heard about neurofeedback while listening to Bessel Van Der Kolk's book "The Body Keeps the Score". I was primarily looking for a way to manage my stress and emotional wellbeing– and I must say it helped. Not only for me but for my family as well. After only a few sessions my family were noticing and commenting on a change in mood and focus. My wife and 17-year old teenage daughter also did a set of sessions. Not as many as I did. At first, my teenager was hesitant as it is a bit time consuming. But then I learned that you could do other things while training. She would watch a movie or play a game on her iphone while training and then she became less resistant and noticed she became happer, less moody and slept better. We enjoyed the overall neurofeedback training experience and am happy we tried it. We will rent again."

Neurofeedback For Sleep Management
Beth in New York:
“I started with NeurOptimal® sessions at the New York office and then decided to rent to save money. The results are awesome. After 3 months of training it's been a great tool for managing my stress and improving my sleep habits."
"After 5 sessions; I feel relaxed, calm and am sleeping very well."
Kristen in New York, 11 Sessions
"Aside from rest, neurofeedback is quite possibly the only method that helped feeling more relaxed. After the first four neurofeedback sessions I slept very deeply and felt noticeably better upon awakening. There was a very marked synchronicity in my sense perceptions and body movement when I walked onto the street after those first couple sessions. After about five sessions I started to feel noticeably better. My daily life started to resemble a more normal pattern of daily activities with even some artistic work in the evenings. I can now do things on the weekends without worrying that I might feel sick or have to sleep most of the day."

"For years I’ve been waking up during the night unable to get back to sleep as my mind races with random thoughts. Throughout the day the same thing would happen, my mind had a mind of its own! I’d heard about neuro-feedback but had never tried it. I was shocked by the immediate difference after my first session, on the drive home the colors seemed brighter, everything looked clearer than before, I thought I was imagining things. But that night, I had the most restful sleep I’ve had in years and that continues to be the case. I find my mind not racing anymore during the day and I feel more present, not constantly worried about things I have no control over. There is a sense of well being and calm that didn’t exist before. I am amazed at the results and feel so grateful to have discovered this treatment. I highly recommend it!"

Lucy, a young professional in NYC decided to train at home to cope with stress during COVID-19 pandemic:
“NeurOptimal was game changing for me. By having 2-3 sessions per week over a several month period, I was able to train my mind to differentiate normal/optimal states from stress states. I have seen a long term impact and now make decisions every day being more aware of my anxiety and alignment level with every decision and action which has been of tremendous benefit in all aspects of my life. I continue to come in for ' weekly bliss' sessions at the NYC office as I noticed it helps my mood and keep my stress levels low.”
– L, NYC. Came in for a session first and then decided to rent (Spring 2021)
"After a neurofeedback session, I feel more calm and grounded, and find that problems are affecting me less. The subtle feeling of being more present lasts, and having once had several weekly sessions, an occasional refresher session helps me retrieve that state more easily."
– Michael, Maryland, 10 Sessions
"Neurofeedback has been a great tool for managing my stress and improving my sleep; I don't wake up at night as often and I feel rested when waking up."
– M. Nevada., 20 sessions
"I was looking for neurofeedback near me and then learned that I could rent a system. It was easy to use and more affordable for me. I would also say it was more effective than protocol neurofeedback (I tried that twice and got side-effects and had to stop). But now after training with the NeurOptimal neurofeedback system for two months, 3 times per week, I feel calmer and more joyful and not so anxious."

"I find my concentration levels improving, ability to understand and retain information while studying has increased, and I have a more restful sleep –all adding up to a more relaxed feeling throughout my day."
