The best way to tell you how NeurOptimal neurofeedback works is to hear from others.
I’ve tried every kind of traditional and alternative method of treating my PTSD and nothing worked on all aspects of it until NeurOptimal. I would have been happy just to have an improvement in my symptoms, never thinking it might be possible to remove them completely.

Within a few sessions, I felt less lethargic throughout the day. My sleep also got better (falling a sleep faster), and I would wake up with less “grogginess”. Also my stress levels throughout the day have reduced a lot.
I must say, I didn’t know what to expect considering that Neurofeedback seemed so foreign to me. After a dozen sessions, I felt much clearer, less distracted, and my thinking more open to possibility. As a mental health practitioner and yoga instructor, I would liken Neurofeedback to “brain training” and an integral part of mind-body health.

I honestly believe the only reason I’m coping with the prolonged wet/cool/dark weather are these treatments.

Just a short note to say how grateful I am and how much better my sleep is…
Emma – after 10 sessions
In the beginning the benefits of the session would last for a bit, but then revert back. After 8 sessions it lasted for 2 days. After session 11, there was a significant improvement – he came downstairs later in the day and said he was just able to sit and work on a project he had been avoiding for 2 days. He’s now been getting himself up in the morning by 9am to work on song-writing instead of sleeping until 12pm and being mad at himself later.

I suffered from Complex PTSD since I was a very young child. The symptoms of flashbacks, nightmares, severe sleep disorder, somatisation disorder, hormone imbalance, constant triggering and bouts of severe depression were always with me. I spent years in and out of psychiatric hospitals and on large amounts of psych meds. I honestly don’t know how I survived, let alone functioned. I felt hopeless and in despair.
After 3 months of daily sessions of NeurOptimal neurofeedback, all my symptoms were reduced in intensity, frequency and duration and I was sleeping 7-8 hours a night. By 6 months, my sleep disorder was completely cured and nightmares and flashbacks reduced to once or twice a week. By 9 months, I was reducing my psych meds under the care of my psychiatrist (who’s a big supporter of neurofeedback) and starting to take up painting again, which I hadn’t done since my early 20’s. Two years after starting NeurOptimal and I have a future to look forward to. It has literally saved my life.
