What happens in a session?
A certified NeurOptimal® trainer may have you fill out a survey listing the complaints
and/or challenges that have brought you into his/her office.
You will next be placed in a quiet space and in a comfortable position.
A neurofeedback training session is relaxing, enjoyable and typically lasts about 35
minutes. As the session starts, you will hear music play through headphones and/or speakers and perhaps
watch relaxing geometric images gently morph across a computer screen. You will hear
occasional “skips” or interruptions in the music – this is the signal that prompts your
brain to “reset” and optimize itself. For children, they can also watch movies or cartoons to help them relax.
At the end of a session, you will most likely feel less stressed and more mentally clear. It
is unlikely you will experience any negative after-effects as NeurOptimal® does not
artificially “push” the brain in any specific direction. Many users experience deeper sleep
and vivid dreams after their very first session.
