Where to find Neurofeedback Training in Utah?
We've been getting a lot of calls lately from customers looking for neurofeedback therapy in Utah. I always go through the same important questions for clients to ask when deciding if neurofeedback would be of benefit, and whether our services are the right fit for their needs:
- What are your training goals?
- Does your insurance cover neurofeedback or are you paying out-of-pocket?
- How many members of your family want to do brain training?
- Are you the kind of person who can set a schedule and follow it?
- And I ask them their city and zip and plug it into the Find A Trainer tool on the NeurOptimal® homepage to see who's in their area for in-office sessions. Here's the shocker about neurofeedback in Utah.

Is Neurofeedback At Home Right For Me?
To help you explore whether a rental is right for you, we asked Kate Linsley, head of Denver and midwest region of our national neurofeedback rental program, to give us her most frequently asked questions about renting; from how NeurOptimal works to how many neurofeedback sessions is recommended, and including some surprising questions.
Common FAQ's about Neurofeedback Training At Home
How do I know if it's working?
We strongly recommend all renters fill out our Checklist of Concerns prior to starting and then again, after every 8 sessions. For example, when clients see their rate of 10 for "Feelings of Worry, Fear or Anguish" turn into a 4 (10 being worst), they know the training is doing something good for them!
What’s included in the home unit rental? Do I need to purchase EEG paste or anything separate?
All our rental plans include all materials required to train (including paste), access to online support forum moderated by expert trainers, access to regular check-ins with staff trainer via text, email, phone or Skype. You supply your own headphones. We've learned many would prefer using their own video headphones which you'd need for doing the training at home. Any headphones/earbuds will be fine to use for the training.

How difficult is it to learn how to run sessions?
Learning how to use the equipment will take you approximately 10-15 minutes and we provide a printed manual with the equipment. There are only 3 items you need to get familiar with: the tablet, the amplifier (called zAmp), and the 5 sensors. There are only 3 buttons that you'll need to press on the computer. And you can learn how to place the EEG sensors on your head from a 3-minute video. Warning: you may get some EEG paste in your hair the first time, but it's water-soluable and comes out easily!
How much does the equipment cost to rent?
We offer three monthly plans--an Individual, a Family and an Unlimited Plan. Cost per session can be as low as $40/session. See our pricing here. If you don't live close to our locations (NYC, Pasadena or Boulder) we also ship it directly to your home for a small fee. Shipping cost is not included and billed separately.
How long does it take to get the home system rental?
Depending on availability, the time from sending in paperwork to rental arrival is approximately 2-3 business days. If in Canada, shipment takes 5-6 business days.
Why is two months minimum rental recommended?
The best training results occur when clients train for 2 - 4 months, with 2 days’ sleep between training sessions. If you rent for 2 months, that would look like 2-3 sessions per week, for a total of 20-30 sessions.
Is it difficult to learn where to place the EEG sensors on the head?
In a word, no. Allow time to place the sensors on scalp and ears. Each rental also comes with conductive paste. See our guide on how to add the 5 sensor to your ears and scalp.
How many sessions should I run per week?
We usually recommend 1-3 sessions per week per trainee, though you can train up to 5 times per week. The minimum we recommend is once a week because through the training the brain is learning a new way of decision making and, like learning a new language, the more frequently the brain practices, the faster we learn.
If I do 30 sessions in 30 days will that have the same effect as 30 sessions over 3 months?
No. While your brain will learn a lot about itself if you train every day for a month the value of spreading those trainings over 3 months is that it gives your behaviour and thought patterns time to adapt. For example, when the brain learns it doesn't need to stay in an stress zone of fight/flight pattern it's going to want to hang out less in highly fearful environments. Here's what a client review (two months of renting, training 3 times per week): "Easy to use, cost efficient and extremely effective. My stress has taken a back seat."
Why Do We Recommend That A Parent Also Train If They Are Renting A Neurofeedback Machine For Their Child’s Attention and Focus Problem?
The short answer is that your nervous systems are connected. Re-regulate one, and it supports the other one. Stress for the parent can take him or her out of regulation. School stress, lack of focus, may be what is seen in the child. Create calm and focus in the parent, the child's system responds to it, making it easier for them to stay regulated.
