WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR SESSION
Each NeurOptimal® session lasts 33 minutes and requires no effort from you. You simply sit or lie back and listen to the music, or read a book or play a game if you prefer to. Most people enjoy the opportunity to relax and take time out of a busy day or schedule; however, it is totally up to you.
1. On arrival
You will be seated in a comfortable reclining chair facing a computer monitor.
As the session starts, you will hear a continuous piece of music for 33 minutes. You will be provided with earbuds so you can easily hear the music.
Your trainer will ask you a few questions about how you are feeling. If this is your first session, this may include a pretraining assessment (if not done prior to the session)
5. During the session
Once the training begins, you will hear the music with occasional and very brief interrupts and you will be able to watch a random visualization on a monitor if you would like.
3. Placing the sensors
Using a conductive paste, your trainer will place two sensors on your scalp and another three on your ears. The conductive paste helps the movement of information, and keeps the sensors in position.
6. Post Session
Once the music stops, your trainer will give you a few moments to come round. If you fall asleep, your trainer will give you a gentle tap. Your trainer will remove the sensors and answer any questions.
As a consultancy, we offer a personalised service and flexible training to suit your requirements. Whether you choose to train with us or rent a system and benefit from unlimited sessions in the comfort of your own home, we will support and guide you through the process to help you get the most from your training.
Session planning tailored to your goals
The number of sessions you need will vary according to your individual goals; however, as a geberal guideline, we recommend 10+ sessions to "feel better" and pave the way for further change later, and 20+ sessions for deeper, longer lasting change.
Pick up where you left off
Your brain will always remember where it left off, so if you need to stop, you can at any time and start up again later—your sessions will never be wasted.
What Happens in a Session?Pre a session we will send you a short questionnaire which will help us understand a little more about you and your interest in BrainFiT. you might be invited to fill out a few quick forms that can be used to help you measure your progress (which you can use at home also). But diagnosis and evaluation of specific symptoms is completely unnecessary for NeurOptimal® to work effectively. This saves you both time and money. 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 33.5 minute session while your brain re-organizes itself.
How Many Sessions?Because everyone’s central nervous system is different, it is not possible to predict exactly how your brain will respond to the information NeurOptimal® provides. But because we have over three million hours of experience with NeurOptimal® we can make some predictions. The good thing is you do not have to take it on faith and trust that it will help you — you will know pretty quickly when it is helping you. And we have progress tracking tools to help you document your training. Just as in how long it takes to learn to read, it is a process and everyone learns differently. How many sessions will it take to “complete” your training? This depends partly upon your goals. If you are training to feel better quickly, you might decide after 10-12 sessions that you have made enough gains and stop. On the other hand, if you are looking for lasting changes, 20-30 sessions is a better ballpark. The good thing is you can stop at any time and always pick it up again later if you so choose. Any training you have done in the past will always serve you well should you do more sessions in the future — no session is ever wasted. For some however, training their brain is like training the body. They want to function at their best throughout their lifetime, and they like to maintain that best even when life presents its inevitable day to day knocks and bruises. After a period of initial training they continue with maybe monthly sessions to give their brain a regular opportunity to “defrag”. Or, like many of us, they just do a session when they feel they need it. But in the end, it is always up to you, because it is YOUR brain that is doing the training and it knows what it needs.
Do the Shifts Last?NeurOptimal® is a learning task, like learning to ride a bike or learning how to read: Once you know, you can’t “not know”, so the effects do remain with you. But your brain is also living tissue, and it can get “knocked off” by challenges, by hormonal changes, pollutants in the environment and the stresses of our everyday lives. When this happens, a session or two can help you get back on point, working at your optimal efficiency. Even if you come back many years later, the brain recognizes the NeurOptimal® process and is reminded of the earlier shifts. It can find its way back relatively rapidly -– much more quickly than the first time you did the training. So if you did a fairly complete initial training (say 20-30 sessions), and then have a major challenge like an illness, the loss of a job or a relationship, or even a head injury or anesthetic, your brain can quickly and efficiently use the information it receives from NeurOptimal® to reorganize itself and “find its way back”. As we like to say: “You’ve always got NeurOptimal® in your back pocket”!
