NeurOptimal®

How would you know if your brain is not functioning at its best?

If you are feeling off and not maximizing your potential, ask yourself what stands in the way of you being or achieving what you would like in your life. It’s possible your brain could use some hurdle help.

Have you experienced times when you have felt “on target”, maybe even invincible, untouchable, where you are mentally in your “A game”? Or where you have felt clear, poised, “in the now”? Or maybe warm, safe, connected and loving?

During these moments your brain is organized, your CNS is flexible and resilient to whatever challenges it faces, and you’re reaping the benefits in the moment. Using NeurOptimal® is like having a “defrag” of your hard drive, it’s suddenly easier to get out of your own way and access your “A game”. Roadblocks can fall away and life can just seem easier, more in flow.

No matter where you are starting from, every brain has a potential best, its own level of optimal flow and function. It doesn’t matter if you are a peak performing athlete or performer, or if you are struggling with relationships or your studies in school, or whatever your situation — given the right information about itself, every brain can reveal its best.

Whether you are looking for personal or spiritual enhancement, that edge to help prepare you for exams or a performance, or whether you just want to “get your ducks in a row”, we believe NeurOptimal® can help you reach that goal.

What happens during your NeurOptimal® training session? 

During a NeurOptimal® session you will wear ear clips and two small sensors on the sides of your head. These pick up the delicate electrical activity of your brain. You relax and close your eyes and listen to music or watch a movie. NeurOptimal® processes your brain signals very rapidly and when it detects them moving into an “instability”, the music or movie pauses very briefly. That’s it. That’s all that happens.  This is the “feedback”.


Consciously of course, this has no meaning for us — in fact we may not even notice them. But unconsciously our brain understands the mathematics behind the timing of the pauses, which act a bit like a “rumble strip”. The brain adjusts its activity without any effort from you (you can be completely zoned out if you want), to stay “within” the rumble strip. The brain does this on its own — NeurOptimal® doesn’t tell it to. Imagine you are walking along a path on a cliff side, in the dark. You’d probably be floundering. But then a flashlight is shone showing the cliff edge. The flashlight doesn’t tell you what to do, but now you can use the extra information you have (the location of the cliff edge) to walk more certainly along your path. The brain learns from the information it is given until over time and without your conscious awareness or effort, it learns to organize itself more efficiently. And this manifests in your life by blocks dropping away and life just seems easier.

NeurOptimal® is simple. But its simplicity belies its power. It’s powerful because it communicates directly with your brain, and there is nothing to interfere with that. There is no outside person having to evaluate or diagnose you, and no outside person deciding what training you need. It’s your brain effectively communicating with itself and making its own changes. 

Optimize your brain!

Brain Tap

We are excited to introduce a new meditation device from BrainTap Technologies.  It is a tool that uses light and sound therapy to get you out of that fight-or-flight, highly stressed mode, and into a state of relaxation where positive changes occur. 

 

The BrainTap Headset uses lights in the ears to calm the nervous system and free up meridian points, while the lights in the eyes help you stay relaxed as you listen to the sounds that are coming through the earphones.  The patterns of lights and sounds synchronize to guide you from a wide-awake state into a meditative state so you can achieve your desired outcome.  


The words used in the BrainTap system applies epigenetics which says that 98% of what causes you to function is not in your genes but in your surroundings (people you associate with, books you read, tv/movies, thoughts you think, etc).  BrainTap helps retrain your brain to think and act in a more clear, relaxed manner.  It can help eliminate stress, change brain chemistry and allow you to feel good so you can accomplish more and live a fuller life. 

BrainTap offers over 50 different series such as sleep, anxiety, PTSD, autism, goal setting, weight wellness, addiction and so much more.  It takes a passive and client-driven approach so it easily fits into your existing program of care.  Your body and mind synchronize with the ideas and concepts, and bring to pass the positive results you want in your life.  Let BrainTap do the work for you with its simple, portable and easy-to-use system!
