Key factors that distinguish NeurOptimal® from other neurofeedback systems:
NeurOptimal® is effective because it is designed to work best with your individual brain. It does not attempt to “fix” predetermined conditions or pin down specific problems. This was a limitation in many earlier neurofeedback systems. Often, resolving a problem in one area could cause other problems elsewhere. The heart of the NeurOptimal® system -Dynamical Neurofeedback®- is a proprietary technology based in neuroscience and specifically designed with the naturally non-linear function of the human brain in mind. NeurOptimal® is built to harness the incredibly dynamic nature of your brain in a way other systems simply cannot match. As a result, this neurofeedback system can be used effectively to address a wide array of complaints without specifically “targeting” them from the outset of the training.

NeurOptimal® is extremely safe. Research shows your own brain “knows best” and therefore the NeurOptimal® brain training system does not force or “push” the brain in any one direction. Basically, Dynamical Neurofeedback® provides your brain with the information it needs to correct itself and function at its most optimal. NeurOptimal® simply enables your own brain’s natural process of self-correction.
NeurOptimal® requires no effort on the user’s part. Other neurofeedback systems require the user to “interact” by playing games or solve puzzles during sessions. This additional level of interaction is unnecessary with the NeurOptimal® system. During a training session, you can simply relax and enjoy!
top benefits of neurOptimal® neurofeedback:
resolve add/adhd naturally
As of November of 2012, the American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback aka EEG biofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD. Furthermore, the APA has equated neurofeedback with medication in terms of efficacy for resolving ADHD.
Our clients have often experienced marked progress in their treatment of ADD/ADHD frequently resulting in the need for little to no medication. Prior to neurofeedback, using medication seemed like the only effective option to make life tolerable for the child and family. Read more about Dr. Granoff's own experiences here, or the stories of our clients and many others across the globe who have used NeurOptimal® neurofeedback for ADD/ADHD.
relieve stress, anxiety & PTSD
During periods of stress in your life, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is particularly helpful in calming the nervous system and providing relief from the many negative effects of stress. The FDA has approved neurofeedback as effective for stress reduction. Our clients very often list feeling more relaxed, centered and calm among the top results they have noticed after completing NeurOptimal® neurofeedback sessions. Here what our clients are saying.
In addition, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback encourages an overall positive mental outlook and a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection. For those looking to enhance their daily health and wellness, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training can be an excellent supplement to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
EXPERIENCE FASTER RECOVERY FROM CONCUSSION and TBI
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is designed to ignite your brain's own natural healing power, allowing it to become more efficient, flexible and resilient through self-correction. This has resulted in particular success for those dealing with the trauma of concussion and traumatic brain injuries. Read about the personal experience of our clients dealing with TBI in the "Brain Injury" section of our Success Stories.
relieve sleep disorders, misophonia, depression and more
Even clients who start NeurOptimal® neurofeedback for other reasons often report improved sleep and a calmer state of mind in many different areas of life. Because this kind of brain training promotes the brain to self-correct in the most effective way for YOUR particular brain, your central nervous system becomes more well-balanced, allowing for a more relaxed state, both while awake and asleep, as well as a more positive outlook. Adults, as well as children, have used NeurOptimal® neurofeedback to address the negative effects arising from sleep disorders, misophonia (selective sound sensitivity syndrome), depression, autism, and many other complaints.
BRAIN FITNESS/AGE REMEDIATION
Along with healthy lifestyle choices, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback can be a powerful tool to mediate cognitive decline that naturally occurs as we age. Just as physical exercise benefits the body, NeurOptimal® keeps the brain fit and resilient. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback can help improve the effects of Alzheimer's, memory, recall and increase overall cognitive dexterity in older individuals.
PEAK PHYSICAL/MENTAL PERFORMANCE
A growing number of Olympic and professional athletes now use NeurOptimal® neurofeedback to provide that critical mental edge which often results in gold medals and championships. When competitors are separated by 100ths of a second, the improved mental focus and physical performance NeurOptimal® neurofeedback provides can mean the difference between winning and losing. But you don’t have to be a pro athlete to enjoy the benefits of NeurOptimal® neurofeedback.
Looking to improve your golf game? Want to be a better pitcher for your company softball team? NeurOptimal® neurofeedback can help.
IMPROVED ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Because NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training enhances concentration and mental focus, students use it as a critical tool to improve their performance in school. Unlike so-called “smart drugs” or neuro-enhancing pharmaceuticals, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is 100% drug-free and has no known side effects (apart from improved sleep!).
