WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?
Neurofeedback (NFB) has emerged out of significant advances in technology and enables new and innovative approaches to psychological healing and behavior change. New findings and revolutionizing the approach to human behavior and in particular brain functions. It is now recognized that the brain does not respond well to imposed structure and processes that are incongruent with its complex dynamical functioning. This is called the Electroencephalograph or EEG. With specialty designed computer software, information about the performance and behavior or the Brain and the Central Nervous System (CNS) as a whole is then presented back to the individual via visual and auditory perception feedback.
People using NFB have experienced personal and spiritual growth. NFB is also widely used by top tier organizations and individuals who want to improve physical and mental performance, such as athletes, professional trainers, business people, performers, and students.
NeurOptimal®’s Dynamical Neurofeedback is a dramatically advanced (or enhanced) process using a 4-D, nonlinear, mathematical software program. This is highly expanded upon the linear 2-D models that the field was initially founded-on. As a result, NeurOptimal® is able to recognize the incredible natural potential of the brain and assist it in achieving optimal processing and outcomes without intervention, manipulation, or imposition of beliefs.
When your doctor uses a stethoscope to listen to your heart and lungs, he is using a simple feedback instrument. Over the past few decades’ machines have become technologically sophisticated enough to detect, amplify, and record these signals.
The NeurOptimal® state of the art CNS training system goes beyond neurofeedback as it is traditionally done. There is no speculation about what your brain needs. Instead, this system monitors your brainwaves and alerts your central nervous system when it is not functioning smoothly. Basically, the system records your brainwaves and mirrors them back to your brain, so it can self-correct.
For example: Imagine that you had an uncomfortable cramp in your back causing you to walk or carry yourself differently. You may not even know you were doing anything out of the norm until you stood in front of a mirror. Upon seeing your reflection, you might straighten up, drop a shoulder, tilt your hip forward or any other slight adjustment.
