Is it Safe? Are there Side Effects?
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive and drug-free technology that assists the brain and central nervous system to make the best use of your own inherent ability to reorganize and optimize functioning. Because NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is non-directive in that it doesn’t “push” the brain by telling it what it needs to do, rather the system provides information to the brain about the brains’ own activity. The brain can do its own reorganizing.
While it is true that you can sometimes get dramatic effects by pushing the brain in a particular way as other systems do, it is also very possible that you can push the brain into a de-stabilized state, resulting in unpleasant side effects. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback does not push the brain in any way, therefore it is a safe, non-invasive intervention.
