NorCal Neurofeedback is committed to providing all of our clients with exceptional care. When a client cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another client from being seen.
Please call us at (530) 350-0169 by 2:00 p.m. on the day prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of any changes or cancellations. To cancel a Monday appointment, please call by 2:00 p.m. on Friday. If prior notification is not given, you will be charged $50.00 (50% full cost of a session) for the missed appointment.
We understand that your time is equally important and if we must cancel an appointment without the same advanced notice, your next visit with us will be no charge (a $100 value).
With NeurOptimal®, the brain is simply interacting adaptively with itself moment by moment, not striving to produce more of some frequency and less of another.
All systems other than NeurOptimal® require the practitioner to first make a diagnosis in some way, such as using past medical or psychological history, QEEG, (brain maps), or standardized testing to create a protocol-driven program. For this reason, most other systems require the administrator to be a licensed healthcare practitioner. A one-moment in time picture of your brain may also be conducted, that shows the dominant frequencies it is producing in which location at that time. Treatment is usually training a minimal selection of frequencies in different areas of the brain, and the focus of training will be on one symptom cluster for a period of weeks or months until, hopefully, there is resolution, at which point the training will be adjusted to address another symptom cluster and so on. It is a linear, stepped process, and sometimes the frequencies needed for one set of symptoms can be wrong for another, which can lead to confusion and a trial and error course training.
With NeurOptimal® there is no need for diagnosis. NeurOptimal® is designed to give the brain continual information about what it has just done. The brain then uses this information to organize itself. During a session, the client listens to music or watches a movie file. As soon as NeurOptimal® detects that the brain is about to make a change, feedback is provided via a very brief pause in the sound. The brain then adapts itself in response to the information, which then provides yet new and different information for NeurOptimal® to mirror back. With NeurOptimal® the brain is simply interacting adaptively with itself moment by moment, not striving to produce more of some frequency and less of another. While those kinds of changes may be observed, they occur as part of an intrinsic self-organizing principal rather than an artificially imposed constraint. This is a large part of both the inherent power and safety of NeurOptimal® and how it invites very seamless change.
NeurOptimal® is truly “plug and play” with no complicated set-up or expertise required. For all of its internal design complexity, NeurOptimal’s® ease-of-use gives it a significant advantage over other systems.
Instead of targeting specific symptoms, NeurOptimal® focuses on optimizing overall brain function. This approach naturally ameliorates most complaints, whatever their source.
When you are training, no electricity, vibration or external signal is going into the brain. In addition, brain training with NeurOptimal® does not target specific areas of the brain nor does it push the brain in any direction by giving it goals to achieve, decided by an “expert”. In this way, NeurOptimal® is globally effective while remarkably free of unwanted side effects.
Each brain is unique and knows the best way to “correct” itself for improved efficiency. NeurOptimal® simply provides the central nervous system with information about its own activity. Given the right information the brain can naturally optimize itself.Client benefits and what to expect
