What is Neurofeedback?

Your brain is the most complex system on Earth and it possesses an amazing ability to reorganize itself. Neurofeedback works with the electrical activity of that system.

NeurOptimal® neurofeedback gives your brain information on what it's doing which your brain then uses to renormalize itself - real time feedback that it doesn't get anywhere else.

Your Central Nervous System (your brain and spinal cord) is masterful at taking in information and using it to organize itself to become more efficient, flexible and resilient. You can think of your neurofeedback sessions as tuning up your brain to run at its best.

Neurofeedback is not new. It has been around for about half a century, gradually becoming more and more comprehensive and sophisticated. If you want to perform at your best or improve your sleep or concentration; or if there is something you want less of, perhaps anxiety, loss of focus, depression, anger, sleep problems or headaches, it is very likely that neurofeedback can help you.

To read about the differences between traditional protocol-driven neurofeedback and NeurOptimal® - the state of the art system I use - visit the What is Neurofeedback page of my website. To get a sense of what your sessions will be like, read What to Expect.
