BUSY? We now offer on the go brain training

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback, also called neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, refers to a computer-aided training method in which electrical brain activity patterns are made visible to the client through a highly specialized computer program. The feedback – what the brain is doing, in real-time- is presented in the form of visual or auditory cues, aiming at creating efficient, coherent brain activity patterns, while discouraging unwanted ones.

Neurofeedback is an effective, evidence-based, safe approach to address a vast array of psychological, emotional and medical symptoms.

Clinical evidence and clinical studies on the effectiveness of NF have been conducted in the following areas

In collaboration with

Cygnet system (Othmer method)

Infra Low Frequency (ILF) neurofeedback is a protocol-based training targeting the lowest energy produced by the brain, with often immediate effects on the self-regulatory ability of the central nervous system’s autonomic functions.

The method has demonstrated dramatically positive outcomes for a variety of mental conditions, including anxiety, sleep disturbances, ADHD, PTSD, autism spectrum disorders, epilepsy, developmental trauma, migraines. ILF neurofeedback is performed through the Cygnet system (BeeMedic), consisting of NeuroAmp II and Cygnet software. Neuroamp II is an approved medical device in the European Union and in the USA.

NeurOptimal®

Dr. Valdeane Brown and Dr. Susan C. Brown, Zengar Institute founders, have developed a non-linear, dynamical system that monitors and reacts to a broad EEG spectrum from both brain hemispheres simultaneously. Neuroptimal® is designed to detect turbulence – sudden changes in the brain electrical activity – and to react to it while the client listens to music in relaxed state. When turbulence is detected, the software informs the brain about its own activity through a brief interruption in the music flow. The brain, through this real-time mirroring of its own activity, will soon start to recognize that its turbulence triggers the interruptions and will start to reorganize itself towards more appropriate, more effective patterns. Brain training with NeurOptimal® can help the brain reach its optimal potential, improving cognitive and physical performance, enhancing focus and deepening sleep. Neurofeeback clients typically report feeling calmer, clearer, happier and able to function better in their life.

What happens during a brain training session?
During a NeurOptimal® brain training session, two small sensors are placed on your scalp and ear clips are attached to your ears. Through these sensors, the system can detect incoherent brainwave activity patterns within sixteen different sets of frequencies across the right and left-brain hemispheres. While sitting on a comfortable chair, you’ll listen to music or watch a movie *. Through barely audible pauses in the music (or sound in case you are watching a movie), NeurOptimal® communicates with the brain, letting it know what it has just done. These interruptions give the opportunity to the brain to self-correct into a more natural, relaxed and effective pattern. A NeurOptimal® neurofeedback session lasts 33 minutes. At the end of the session you can immediately resume all your activities. You might feel refreshed, relaxed, and in a higher state of mental alertness and flow.

*If you wish to use movies, please bring your own DVD.

NeurOptimal® is a training, not a treatment. Consequently, NeurOptimal® does not require diagnosis or treatment planning. You should be under the care of a physician for any medical disorder.

NeurOptimal® is the system of choice for the “on the go” option.
