How long does a session take?
Each session takes about 33 minutes, with a few minutes on each end for hook up and removal of sensors. We tell users to allow 45 minutes end-to-end.
How many sessions does it take to feel a difference?
Each person is unique. Some people feel shifts right away, others might feel changes with multiple sessions. It is similar to a new workout program at the gym or a diet in that doing it for one day is not likely to make a big impact but if you do several the change starts to build. We recommend a package of sessions or a rental to experience the benefits of cumulative training sessions.
What sorts of differences will I start to feel?
Brain training can have a wide variety of benefits. Many clients report improvements in managing sleep, feeling more calm, focused, clear and bouncing back from stressors with ease, and report that life generally becomes smoother.
How long has this technology been around?
Neurofeedback has been around since the 1960’s, but originally it was only available to astronauts and Navy Seals to help them reach peak performance. Because of advances in technology, NeurOptimal® has made brain training accessible to the public for the past 17 years. Mind Balance has been offering services for 7 years.
Are there any side effects?
Is brain training invasive?
No. Other than having sensors temporarily attached to your head and ears, NeurOptimal® is entirely non-invasive and 100% safe!
Is brain training approved by the FDA?
NeurOptimal® has been designated as a General Wellness Product by the United States FDA.
Is it covered by insurance?
Unfortunately it is not covered by insurance. Because it is not a medical device but considered a general wellness product, it is not considered a treatment.
