My Neurofeedback Experience
What is NeurOptimal?
A typical session lasts around 30 minutes. Once complete, you will be asked to fill out another assessment so the practitioner can monitor exactly how you respond after each session. After about 8 weeks of this training, you will be asked again to reflect on how this training has affected your day to day life. Subjects may not immediately notice large changes but changes often occur more subtly as the brain is the most subtle and complex organ in the universe. The assessment tools are an objective measure to highlight these subtle changes that can be identified and strengthened over time.
Even though the brain is a material entity that obeys the laws of physics, it does not imply that we are devoid of free-will nor does what it produce equate to who we are as individuals. What this does imply, is that we have an evolutionary tool that has enabled us to survive over the centuries. By examining the brain, we can better understand which forces drive or repel us and use the information to our advantage.
As a person who spent the first 25 years of his life making mistakes, I was still able to discover a benevolent side of myself that the world had never seen. No matter where you are or what you’ve experienced, there is always an opportunity to become aware of your own actions and chart a course to a better future.
Modern science and human intuition have created tools at our disposal like NeurOptimal that can help us reach more desirable modes of existing in the world. Perhaps even beyond that, there is a clear path forward to recovery whether you suffer from chronic depression, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or any other disease or imbalance of the brain.
