What Happens in a Brain Trainer Session?

The following describes a neurofeedback session supervised by your trainer.

BEFORE

Before your first neurofeedback session begins, your trainer may have you fill in a brief questionnaire describing how you are feeling. Then, s/he will have you sit in a comfortable chair facing a computer screen.

Next, the trainer attaches tiny sensors on your scalp and sensors behind your ears to pick up the delicate electrical activity of your brain. Much like an EKG or ECG, the system is simply reading or listening to this signal. Nothing comes out through the electrodes, nothing invasive or intrusive is involved throughout the training process.

Your trainer will record a baseline reading and may review it with you before starting the training. While this is not absolutely necessary for the brain training, it can be interesting to look at your brain activity at the beginning versus the end of your session as well as over time. While Brain Trainer® offers some very exciting ways of assessing your progress, in the end it is always how you are doing in your life that counts most. After all, this is what brought you to Brain Trainer in the first place!

DURING

Your trainer will then give you earphones and a blanket when needed. You are welcome to bring your own set of earphones for your comfort. S/he will start the program for you and then the brain training will begin. You will listen to music and watch DVD’s during which you may notice very brief pauses in the sound or image.  The very precise timing of these interruptions gives your brain the vital information it needs to reorganize itself. This provides your brain with a reference point to operate more optimally. You don’t have to do anything while all this is happening. It’s all right to close your eyes and “zone out” even sleep through some of the sessions and just let your brain do its job.

The length of the brain training can vary and a session is usually around one to four hours consisting of multiple protocols over different sites. Once you have finished, the trainer may record another baseline and compare it with your earlier one. There is nothing invasive involved with the training process. No electricity, pulses or whatever, is sent down the electrodes into your brain. Neurofeedback is naturopathic and does not “push” the brain in any particular direction. The system merely cues your central nervous system to do what is naturally best for YOUR brain.

AFTER

How will you feel afterwards? Because Brain Trainer ® is non-invasive and does not push the brain in any “direction” during training; it is highly unlikely you will feel any side effects following a session. Any noticeable shifts in your mood, awareness or energy level after brain training really depends on the individual and can vary from session to session.

The main point is that transformation with Brain Trainer ® happens according to your brain’s own intrinsic wisdom, with no conscious effort required from the user.The length of the brain training can vary and a session is usually around one to four hours consisting of multiple protocols over different sites.

BRAIN TRAINING IS FOR:

  • Athletes to improve focus, concentration, clarity of thought, reaction times and dexterity.
  • Artists, musicians, writers and executives create new neural networks that can open up discoveries, creativity and positive energy.
  • Children, labelled as “learning disabled,” find that they are learning-abled, understanding their own brain strengths and opening up pathways for learning, achievement and success.
  • Teenagers, overwhelmed by constant stimuli and often diagnosed as ADD or ADHD, find that they can learn to focus, discipline their thinking, conserve their energy and experience greater clarity, joy and confidence.
  • Addicts, driven by impulse and habit instead of logic and intent, are released from the tyranny of their “drug of choice.”
  • Insomniacs and those who suffer from headaches and pain find themselves restored.
  • Women stressed out and run down by relentless responsibilities, find new energy, beauty and passion for life, children, partner and play.
  • Men, stressed out and feeling run down by responsibilities, find new energy and passion for life.
  • Students, wanting to improve their focus, get better grades, and experience greater confidence.
  • Those suffering with physical and emotional traumas find that disturbances decrease.
  • Older persons strengthen their memory, physical energy, experience calm and clarity of thought.
