Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a NeurOptimal session?
You will sit in a comfortable chair. The sensors will be placed on your scalp and ears. Ear buds are placed in the ears so you can easily hear the music. Noise-canceling headphones are also an option. Once the training begins, you are welcome to close your eyes and rest or watch random visualizations on a monitor. The session lasts 33 minutes. Shorter sessions of 15 minutes are available for children.
What medical conditions does neurofeedback treat?
MindPeace is not a medical facility. We do not treat, heal, cure, or diagnose medical conditions. We are a technology company whose goal is to optimize brain efficiency through training the central nervous system.
What do Medical Professionals say about NeurOptimal?
The American Pediatric Academy lists neurofeedback as the Best Support treatment for children with ADHD. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved neurofeedback for relaxation training.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions at which each person benefits is different based on the challenges you are experiencing. Most clients begin to see some changes at 3 sessions. Some are satisfied with the results after 8-10 sessions, while others continue to enjoy deeper benefits by doing 20-30 sessions. Depending on where you live and how often you want sessions, units can be rented to use at home for a few weeks up to several months. Some people buy a personal unit for a lifetime of benefits for themselves and their family. In our experience, if your challenges are a recent occurrence in your life, you'll likely feel complete after 8-10 sessions. If there are multiple conditions that began some years ago, you may want to consider 20-30 sessions. The more sessions you have, the more comprehensive the results.
How does it work?
NeurOptimal's special real-time feedback mechanism monitors your brain waves, then provides "feedback" to the central nervous system. When the software detects a tremor in your brainwave pattern, it sends an audible message to your brain and cues it to self-correct. This would be similar to someone with poor posture looking in a mirror. They would instantly pull their shoulders back and straighten their spine. We are wired for balance and efficiency and NeurOptimal utilizes our intrinsic, natural self-regulation capacities.
How is NeurOptimal different than other neurofeedback systems?
NeurOptimal supports the brain to re-correct itself on its own. Other traditional neurofeedback systems force brainwaves into new and prescribed patterns. NeurOptimal is a non-invasive type of brain training.
Are there side effects?
Everyone has a different response to neurofeedback just as everyone has a different experience from attending their fitness training program. Some find themselves relaxed and in rest mode, while others are more focused, energized and clearheaded. The benefit of having a session in your home is you can have a session in the morning to start your day or do a session towards the evening and wind down into a peaceful sleep.
How much is a session?
The first visit is free! This allows you to ask any questions and discover the benefits for yourself. After that, a single session is $90. Home visits are also available.
