NeurOptimal® is considered by many to be the most advanced form of neurofeedback available today. Developed by clinical psychologists with over 40 years in neuroscience fields, it is the world’s first and only nonlinear dynamic form of neurofeedback. NeurOptimal® gives your brain the feedback it needs to become more efficient, flexible and resilient. NeurOptimal® is FDA approved, 100% natural, non-invasive and is suitable for everyone of all ages.
The better your brain functions, the better you function. People train using NeurOptimal® for a variety of reasons including managing stress, increasing focus and productivity, promoting calmness, increasing peak performance, spiritual and personal growth and so much more. It helps you become more efficient, adaptable and resilient so you can take on anything that comes your way.
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a form of brain training that gives information about your brain activity as it is occurring. Using sensors that pick up micro-volts on your scalp (no electricity goes into your brain!), NeurOptimal® feedback is provided via audible cues as interruptions in the audio. Once prompted, your brain is brought back to the present moment, naturally optimising itself. It’s like holding up a mirror to the brain so it can make its own adjustments.
NEUROPTIMAL DYNAMICAL VS LINEAR SYSTEMS
The key differences between the two types of neurofeedback include:
NeurOptimal® is Dynamical neurofeedback that requires no diagnosis or expertise. NeurOptimal is FDA approved and can be used safely without a doctor’s permission.
Linear Neurofeedback requires a professional diagnosis by a licensed practitioner. NeurOptimal® is non-invasive with a holistic approach so the entire brain is trained at once. The brain responds to the cues to bring it back to the present moment using the system’s feedback.
Other neurofeedback systems use specific treatment protocols based on individual symptoms. Once treated, another symptom is treated and so on. It is a linear approach which can be time consuming, lead to side effects and trial and error.

Focus is on treatment
No diagnosis is necessary because training helps your brain find its own best solution
Expertise is built into the system. No skills are necessary
Requires practitioner skill
No known unwanted side effects
Potential side effects
Requires no effort or special discipline. Client simply relaxes
Requires effort on behalf of client to consciously train the mind
100% non-invasive. Lets the brain “decide” which corrections work best
Invasive; pushes the brain in a specific direction to achieve correction

A NeurOptimal® session is an enjoyable experience. All you need to do is sit in a comfortable chair where the trainer will attach a couple of small sensors to your head. Your brain’s electrical activity will be read by the NeurOptimal® program’s software. As the session starts, you will hear music play though headphones and will hear occasional “skips” or interruptions in the music – this is the signal that prompts your brain to optimise itself. There is no need to control thoughts. You may read, meditate, or just relax.
Every brain is different so it is not possible to predict how you will respond to NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback training. It will also depend on the goals that you have. If you are training to feel better quickly, you may have enough gains from 10-12 sessions. For deeper lasting changes, 20-30 sessions is a better ballpark. You can stop at any time and always pick it up again later if you so choose.
Once you have experienced NeurOptimal®, you can’t “not know”, similar to learning how to ride a bike, so the effects do remain with you. However, your brain is also living tissue, and it can get “knocked off” by challenges such as stress. When this happens, a session or two can help you get back on point. The brain will recognise the NeurOptimal® process and find its way back, much more rapidly than the first time you experienced the training. It builds on your previous sessions in order to optimise your brain efficiently.
NeurOptimal® is diagnostically agnostic. Instead of targeting specific symptoms,
NeurOptimal® focuses on optimizing overall brain function. This approach naturally
ameliorates most complaints, whatever their source.
Sessions are $100 and include brain training and support for tracking progress. Sessions
can be bought in lots of 10 at $90 each. Rental packages start at $1150 for 1 month. NDIS funding can be used. For more information on rental packages click here.
