Some neurofeedback devices use micro-stimulation, which adds electricity to the scalp. Genuine neurofeedback systems such as NeurOptimal and Lens don't. Read our article to learn what's safe and what you should know when deciding about brain training with neurofeedback. Kids enjoy a NeurOptimal session because they can draw, play, read or talk while in a session.

What Is Neurofeedback Used For?
The uses of neurofeedback vary widely. This is possible because the brain is involved in much of the body’s functioning so many areas can improve from neurofeedback training.
The two broad areas are specific concerns and overall wellness.
The neurofeedback systems that are either FDA approved as Medical Devices or are in the process of being researched for that designation, specifically target symptom relief from various disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and ADHD.
It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to register the equipment with the FDA to review as either a Class 2 Medical Device or as a General Wellness Device. The determination depends on what benefit the manufacturer wants to make from the device specifically in this category and whether it is for treatment or training purposes.
The neurofeedback systems that are designated by the FDA as General Wellness Devices are considered safe to be used for overall wellness purposes by the general public and do not require supervision by a healthcare provider. They are brain training, not treatment devices.
Why NeurOptimal Neurofeedback?
At Neurofeedback Training Co. we use the NeurOptimal neurofeedback system for sessions and rentals. This second generation neurofeedback system works by training the brain to use the present moment to decide what to do next, rather than old, often maladaptive patterns. It does this by providing precisely timed interruptions in music, which allows your natural orienting response, to engage and process the new, critical information for change.
What Neurofeedback Training Can Do For You:
Meet your wellness and personal growth goals
Achieve your athletic goals (performance anxiety, social anxiety)
Enhance academic performance (better focus at school and work)
Health advocate and entrepreneur Dave Asprey claims:
NeurOptimal brain trainer is the most powerful and affordable neurofeedback technology available.

Is NeurOptimal a Safe Brain Training System?
Yes. NeurOptimal is a safe and effective brain training method. Why? Because nothing is being added to your brain. It is through feedback that your brain functioning improves itself. There is no electricity added to your brain, which is a common assumption people have when they see EEG sensors attached to the head.
In 2018 the NeurOptimal neurofeedback system became FDA approved as a General Wellness Device.

How Neurofeedback Benefits Pregnant Women
Listen to a Heather talking about how neurofeedback training has benefited her experience being pregnant and reduced her worry and fear.
“Renting a home system was easy to use and cost effective. I feel more at ease now in social settings and feel calmer than before.”
I noticed PROFOUND changes: changes in behavior, thinking, and habits that I had been working on for years unsuccessfully. It was a win for me. I'm not suggesting it is a magic wand or will do all the work for you, but my results were pretty amazing.
Andrew, CA (rented a unit for 3 months and then decided to buy)
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.
Shelly in-office sessions in NYC (12 sessions)

Neurofeedback training helped manage my stress levels especially as I was preparing for a test
