Welcome to Sleep Serviced of Maryland, your local source for NeurOptimal neurofeedback: the technology of peak performance, happiness and well being. Join the millions of neurofeedback users who enjoy the benefits of reduced stress, improved sleep and relief from conditions that used to hold them back from becoming all they were meant to be.
Though based in technology, neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, drug-free, brain training system that helps the central nervous system (CNS) make the best use of your brain’s natural resources. NeurOptimal is extremely powerful and effective. The American Federal Drug Association has approved neurofeedback for stress reduction and the American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.
If you are new to neurofeedback, you probably have questions. This website is a great place to start your information search, but you can also contact us directly. As NeurOptimal users and trainers ourselves, we will be happy to share our personal and professional experience with you.
NeurOptimal is Ideal for any person who has issues related to:
- Attention and concentration (ADHD)
- Anxiety/ depression/ mood swings
- Headaches/ chronic pain
- Sleep disturbances
- Chronic fatigue
- Learning problems
- Physical/athletic performance
What is Neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal's EEG biofeedback or neurofeedback system is a powerful technology that can greatly enhance your well-being and generally help you get the most out of life. Brain training can unlock untapped cognitive potential and help you achieve long-held goals and dreams.
Biofeedback has been around for almost 40 years, but its practical use was inhibited by the scarcity of a practical delivery system. In the past, a neurofeedback interface would require a room full of computers and technicians. Today, Zengar Institute, Inc. has created a simple, interactive software that harnesses this powerful technology in an easy to-use program called NeurOptimal that loads onto a laptop computer.
Because neurofeedback has been time-tested, it is also very safe. Respected institutions such as the U.S. FDA and the American Academy of Pediatrics have endorsed neurofeedback.
How does it work?
The NeurOptimal® proprietary neurofeedback system is a highly personalized brain training software that prompts the central nervous system to help make the best use of your brain’s neural resources.
Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body. Much of our suffering comes from pervasive recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotionally stranded or cognitively “stuck”. Neurofeedback prompts the brain to draw from its existing resources and pull itself out of these mental “ruts”. The result is a more open and positive mindset in which obstacles are more manageable and problems more resolvable.
Much like a mirror that promotes self-correction, NeurOptimal®’s propriety neurofeedback program monitors your brain waves and then provides “feedback” to your central nervous system about what it has just done. When the software detects a tremor in your brain wave pattern, it sends an audible signal that encourages the brain to “reset” and self-correct.
