What is neurofeedback with NeurOptimal®?

Feedback happens when a system uses its own output as input to effect change. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback just specifically for the brain which uses sensors on the head to detect electrical activity in the brain, using that information to promote positive change. The term neurofeedback is a general term grouping a variety of systems and techniques together.

 

Neurofeedback has been used safely for decades to invoke positive change in brain function. West Seattle Neurofeedback provides access to one of today's hottest biohacking technologies for self-care called Dynamical® neurofeedback with NeurOptimal®. The mathematics and philosophy used set NeurOptimal® in their own category in the neurofeedback industry.

 

The NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system receives information about the electrical activity of the brain through EEG sensors. It uses that information and mirrors it back to the brain in real-time about what it is doing at the moment. Scanning the brain 256 times a second for 33 minutes looking for the moment when the activity changes. NeurOptimal® uses the language of mathematics to sense your cortical activity, informing your brain what it’s doing presently, your brain will pay attention and self adjust. Allowing you to relearn healthy coping skills in a safe environment. Never forceful.

 

Your brain is innately programmed to adapt for survival.  NeurOptimal® capitalizes on this adaptability to help you become your most optimal self. 

What should I expect?

Change takes dedication and desire. So, when asked how many sessions it will take we will most likely say that it depends on the individual. We all have different life stories that have influenced our decision making and reactions to events. What your brain does with the information neurofeedback provides affects how long it takes. We are here to help you navigate that process. We find it more important to make sure you are feeling better rather than focusing on how many sessions you do! 

 

Sessions are 33 minutes long but plan on being at West Seattle Neurofeedback for 45 minutes; longer for first sessions. Many people see great results after 20 sessions, however, we are all different and it may take more sessions to get to where you want to be. 

 

NeurOptimal® is FDA approved as safe for consumers to use without a doctor's permission. In 2018, the FDA ruled the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback as a General Wellness device and not a medical device based on the safety of the system and its intended uses. This is good news for individuals wanting a program for brain wellness but that is safe and non-invasive.
