Coaching and Neurofeedback
You can stop training whenever you feel ready and return for booster sessions to tune up and strengthen what your brain has already learned. Some individuals return to training to address a different concern. Many clients continue brain training on a monthly or bi-monthly basis to maintain their brain fitness for a lifetime. NeurOptimal® is non-invasive and naturopathic, so it may be used as long as you like. Similar to the benefits of exercise for the body, neurofeedback can be an important tool for brain health, as it keeps the central nervous system in tip-top shape. You can make neurofeedback training central to your personal brain fitness program as you age.
Yes, the effects of neurofeedback are durable. Training with NeurOptimal® is a learning task. 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 does not forget. It may get rusty, but the effects of learning remain throughout your lifetime.
Having said that, your brain is living tissue and you can— and will— get "knocked off" by stress, by chemicals, by alcohol, by an anesthetic, by the difficult daily lives we all seem to live. The wonderful thing is, a few booster sessions will get you back to where you were. Trainers report seeing a trained brain quickly utilizing the information NeurOptimal® is offering. It is as if the brain says "I know what to do with this!" and it goes through all the steps it went through in the weeks of initial training, but very rapidly. So you quickly get back into your good place.
