THE TRAINING SESSION
You can think of NeurOptimal® training as holding up a mirror to your brain. Imagine you had not seen yourself in a mirror in a long time. Once you see your reflection you naturally start adjusting yourself, maybe standing a little taller, straightening up your hair and so on. The mirror provides the information you need to correct and adjust yourself. And so it is with the brain.
You will sit in a comfortable chair and simply relax. Two tiny sensors are applied to your scalp and earclips to your ears. These sensors allow NeurOptimal® to read the delicate electrical activity of your brain, much like an EKG reads your heart. You then listen to music and watch an ever-changing visual display, although you can close your eyes and tune out if you prefer. Children sometimes like to play a quiet game or read a book. There are very brief pauses in the music indicating NeurOptimal® is at work, invisibly guiding you through a complex mathematical dance during which the challenge to your brain is varied.
Despite the complexity “under the hood”, no effort is required from you during sessions, at all! Simply relax and enjoy the 33 minutes session while your brain re-organizes itself.
NUMBER OF SESSIONS
It is impossible to know in advance how many sessions it will take to reach the goal you have set for yourself.
A person can start sessions for a specific purpose and notice changes in a whole other area since it is your brain itself that is doing it!
It is recommended to start the sessions once or twice a week for a few weeks. From the first sessions, clients feel more clarity, lightness and serenity or even a more positive outlook on life. They observe deeper sleep and are more rested.
It is thanks to your feelings that you will know how often you want to do sessions.
