And Now, a Word From our Renters! – NeurOptimal Reviews

Posted by Sara St. John

Enjoy reading some recent neurofeedback reviews from our renters. We started renting out NeurOptimal home systems around the U.S. and Canada in 2011 and since then we have received hundreds of reviews from our clients. 

Latest NeurOptimal Review:
"It was totally wild.  After my first session I felt my body relax in a way that I had never experienced before.  It made me realize how tense I've been for my entire life."

 Parent and Teen Training Together with The Neurofeedback Home System

Simon*, 51 years old, who had rented a system because his teenage daughter was experiencing anxiety after a friend had attempted suicide.  He had heard that neurofeedback could help and he didn't want to put her on medication.  I had encouraged him to train as well because we see the best results when parents train during the same rental period as their children.  (Read more about how parents' nervous systems affect their childrens'.)  When we checked in after their second week of renting (he was training 3 times a week on himself) he described a "profound level of relaxation."  This new experience made him realize that his baseline state was actually a high level of stress and anxious feelings of worry and fear.  But previous to his first neurofeedback session it was all he knew.  "I started to think about my childhood and I realize how scary it was but how I had just sucked it up and carried on.  Now I realize my body was still in a state of terror and it's now starting to relax."

Neurofeedback for Families

"We rented a neurofeedback home system for our 8-year-old daughter who was wetting the bed every night.  After the third session she stopped the bed wetting and she's so much calmer.  Then we started training our other children as well.  We realized that everyone could benefit.  I have to say, after a month our house is much calmer."

Tal, father of four, told me his story when, after his first month of renting, was inquiring about purchasing a system.  He was very disciplined with training everyone twice a week, which is key to good results and said he was really noticing how the tone of the home was more peaceful.  His wife, who "usually is very anxious about the children" he noticed was not as worried about them. Read more neurofeedback therapy reviews: Getting best results when training – consistency is key!

Does Neurofeedback work?


A Review After 2 Months of Neurofeedback – Tim's Story

"The first change that I noticed during the two months of training was an improvement in word recall and articulation. I experienced this after the first 5-6 sessions.  Since then I have also noticed improved attention and find myself getting "lost" (in a good way) in my work a bit more often than I used to. I did not see an improvement in sleep patterns. I actually have been having more trouble with sleep than usual but I am attributing that to some other health issues in my life. However, I have noticed an increased resilience to lack of sleep. Losing a couple hours of sleep has far less of an impact on my productivity and quality of life than usual. I am not sure if this is a good thing or if it can be attributed to neurofeedback but it has been a clear and definite change worth noting. In addition to these observations, NeurOptimal sessions are just flat-out relaxing and enjoyable and I am glad I got the chance to give it a try! I have had 2 or 3 pretty serious bumps to my head in my life and based on the research I have come across, neurofeedback is one on the best ways to mitigate the downstream neurological effects.

– Tim, 53 year old sales executive, sent us his feedback after renting a system for two months.  He trained 3xs week during those two months.

 Does the Neurofeedback Training Last?

Training with NeurOptimal is actually a learning atsk. You get results because your brain is actively learning, even if you are not doing the learning consciously. So much like reading, once your brain knows how to read, it can't "not know." Your brain doesn't forget. It may get rusty, bit the effects of learning remain throughout your lifetime.
