What Happens in a Neurofeedback Session?
Before getting started, one of our Neurofeedback trainers will meet with you one-on-one to answer all of your questions and determine if Neurofeedback may be a good fit for you. We may have you fill out a survey listing the complaints and/or challenges that have brought you into our office, or will talk about what you are hoping to achieve with Neurofeedback training.
When you come for your first Neurofeedback session you relax in a quiet space and in a comfortable position. Your trainer will attach special sensors to your head that will feed your brain wave patterns into the NeurOptimal® program’s software.
A neurofeedback training session is relaxing, enjoyable and typically lasts about 45 minutes. As the session starts, you will hear music play and can choose to also watch relaxing geometric images gently morph across a screen, or you may just relax and close you eyes if you prefer. You will hear occasional “skips” or interruptions in the music – this is the signal that prompts your brain to “reset” and optimize itself.
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, and has no known side effects. Many users experience deeper sleep and more vivid dreams after their very first session.
