Frequently asked questions
How long does a session take?
Each session is 33 minutes with a few minutes on each end for the hook up and removal of the five sensors. The total time is about 50 minutes.
How much does it cost?
Initial Consultation and 15 minute demo session is $150.
A NeurOptimal® session single is $100
A package of 10 sessions is $900
One month of unlimited training at home is $900.
Are there any side effects?
It is completely non invasive as it only reads your brainwaves. Some people report being a bit tired after a session, but they usually sleep really well that evening and wake up refreshed.
How many sessions does it take to feel a difference?
Each brain and person is unique. Many people feel shifts immediately and others may experience change with multiple sessions. We recommend a package of sessions to experience the benefits of cumulative training sessions.
How will I know it is working?
We will have you fill out a chart to track your shifts. Many clients have reported improvements in feeling more flexible, resilient, calm, relaxed, energized, comfortable, certain, refreshed, and focused. Others have reported better sleep, less stress, easier weight management, less brain fog, reduced anxiety and overall well being. If you purchase a package, we will reassess after ten sessions.
How does it work?
You will sit in a comfy relaxing chair and we will apply two sensors on the top of your head and 3 on your ears. These sensors read your brain waves only, they do not put any electrical current into your brain. We turn on our NeurOptimal® software and you can relax for 33 minutes. You can read, watch a movie, work on homework or computer, or take a nap. When you are listening to the NeurOptimal® music, you will hear brief micro-pauses in the sound. It almost sounds like an scratch on a record. These auditory breaks are encouraging your brain to make dynamical changes. After the program is done, we remove the sensors and you are good to go.
Is it safe for children?
Yes, it is completely safe as it is only reading the information of your brain waves. It has helped many children significantly with increased focus and attention, reading and writing skills. Many clients also report they are better able to control their body and emotional outbursts.
Is it covered by insurance?
Unfortunately sessions are not covered by insurance. Since it is considered a general wellness product, not a medical device, it is not considered a treatment.
How long has neurofeedback been around?
It has been around since the 1960's. Originally it was available to astronauts and Navy Seals only and helped them reach their peak performance. NeurOptimal® has been around for the past 17 years and has made brain training more accessible to the public. Two extensive surveys of NeurOptimal® users indicate that there are well over three million hours of safe and effective usage.
Is brain training approved by the FDA?
NeurOptimal® has been designated as a General Wellness Product by the US FDA.
Do the results last?
Yes, the results do last. It is a bit like learning how to read. Once you know how, you will always know how to read. If you do not read for a long time, you may be a bit rusty.
Once you have done approximately 20 sessions, it will always be in your tool box. If life throws you a curve ball, you may need a refresher session or two to get you back in the swing of things.
Who can benefit from using NeurOptimal®?
Anyone with a brain can benefit from using NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback.
Every 3000 miles we tune up our cars, we exercise our bodies regularly, now is the time to start training your brain. We have safely and effectively used it on babies to a 101 year old, cancer patient, elite athletes, parents, executives, horses, and even dogs.

Note: One of the modalities I use to help optimize brain function is neurofeedback. Basic learning theory is the backbone of EEG biofeedback, which is more well known as neurofeedback. Neurofeedback trains the brain to enhance self-regulation and helps the body to find more efficient pathways so the body is better able to manage and heal itself. We do not ‘treat’ conditions with neurofeedback, but assist the nervous system to make adjustments to improve function. As such, neurofeedback has been shown to be profoundly helpful for improving, remediating, or alleviating, a wide spectrum of conditions. Neuroplus Institute makes no claims that it can cure any conditions, including any conditions referenced on its website or in print materials, including ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, migraines, headaches, stress, sleep disorders, Alzheimer’s and dementia. If you take prescription medications for any of these conditions, you should consult with your doctor before discontinuing use of such medications.
