Improved ability of the Brain to process and integrate life experiences, brings forward new understanding and releases bound psychological energy for transformation and action.

A survey of NeurOptimal trainers comprising 1.2 million sessions found these areas of function improved with training:

  • Stress— worry and fearfulness
  • Anxiety, panic, hypervigilance
  • Sleep disorders
  • Depression
  • Learning problems— ADHD symptoms, lack of focus, inability to attend to tasks
  • Headaches and migraines
  • PTSD and trauma symptoms
  • Anger
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Cravings and addictions
  • Low self-esteem and self-image
  • Stuck patterns of thinking and behaving

Improved Brain flexibility and adaptability means, increased learning and transformation. Increased awareness results in a mindfulness that further enhances healing, learning, improvement and transformation.

Broadly speaking, the benefits of Training with NeurOptimal® are increased stability, flexibility, adaptability, and greater resilience of your Central Nervous Systems functioning. Whilst NeurOptimal® is not a treatment and does not target any specific issue, because of the innovative way it works, many specific beneficial outcomes emerge that are appropriate for that individual.

NeurOptimal® addresses the health and capacity of the Central Nervous System(CNS) rather than a symptom directed approach from the outside in. As a result, all other systems arising from the CNS, or interact with it, are able to function with increased health and efficiency.

The recovery, performance, or transformational path with NeurOptimal® varies from person to person. This is because NeurOptimal® is assisting your Brain and CNS to operate according to natural potential, rather than forcing any predetermined path toward any predetermined outcome. Considering that everyone is starting from a different position with a unique history, this is particularly relevant. Apart from the natural ease and flow, the change process can be talked about globally in five general overlapping and interactive aspects.

1. Stabilising of the Central Nervous System:

During this process people begin to feel deeply relaxed, mind quietening between sessions, sleep improvements, decrease in reactivity, and generally, feeling more settled. For some this can occur with one session for others it may take more.

2. Beginning of deep unconscious processing:

Further improvements in the above benefits and stability, occasional vivid dreaming for some, life begins to feel easier, energy begins to increase, alertness increases, increased endurance, stabilising of mood, noticeable improvements in psychology and response times.

3. Improved processing:

Improved stability and efficiency along with freeing up of psychological energy brings increases in attention, focus, mind body & eye hand coordination, adaptability & flexibility, increased awareness, increased presence, decision making easier and faster, more creative, better response times, increased intuition, improved access to higher resources, coping significantly better, sense of self clearer and more stable, able to reference internally more easily for decision making, clarity in thought, identification of emotions and processing of them without being overwhelmed. Significant shifts can occur seamlessly with increased adaptability and flexibility such that within days you will feel you have always been like it. Increased awareness leads to objective observation of own and others behaviour along with environmental dynamics in general. As a result of developing mindfulness the developmental and transformational processes are receiving uncontaminated feedback for further enhancement of outcomes

4. Smooth Travelling:

Carrying the benefits easily from session to session, finding that the old ‘you’ is getting harder to recall as you settle into the emergence of increased capacity, better functioning, and a stronger positive sense of self. Life experience is now driving the growth and transformational process and confidence develops as you become familiar with this growing sense of self control.

5. Into the future:

Once your Central Nervous System is functioning according to its inherent design and capacity, the gains will continue to unfold independently of NeurOptimal®. Most people are happy with this level of improvement and stop training. Others briefly dip in and out of the NeurOptimal® process over time, for additional benefits or for assistance with periods of unhealthy stress.
