There are two types of neurofeedback. Which is right for you?
This chart on NeurOptimal®’s website compares the two and explains why each difference is important. The chart shows in more detail what I think of as the bottom line: NeurOptimal® gives your brain real time information that your brain uses to optimize itself. Because your brain makes the decisions at the pace and order of change that are right for you, the training is virtually side effect free. Linear neurofeedback is diagnosis and protocol based. It pushes the brain. It can be helpful, but if the wrong protocols are chosen, side effects can result. Examples are irritability, difficulty with sleep, headaches.

When I was first getting my own brain trained, I found NeurOptimal® by the good luck of a ZIP code based Internet search. I’m grateful because not only did it help me with lifelong problems with sleep, it also opened my eyes to what could be possible for my psychotherapy clients. I became a trainer in 2004, and it’s been a rewarding experience providing this amazing technology.
On our website, you can read what clients have said and about the benefits of training. If you don’t see what interests you, or if you’d like to make an appointment, please call 212-877-6923 or email me. I look forward to hearing from you!
