Neurofeedback

We now offer NeurOptimal® neurofeedback. NeurOptimal® is a gentle and non-invasive, advanced neurotechnology, that helps our brain regain its optimal functioning by developing flexibility and resilience. This process helps interrupt negative thought patterns, supports better focus and mental acuity, as well as help you get better sleep.

 

In addition to supporting peak performance in athletes, performing artist and professionals, it has been shown to help with depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ASD, migraines, chronic pain management, and more.

 

NeurOptimal® can be a helpful addition to your therapy process, or on its own to support better functioning. Contact us today to find out how NeurOptimal® can help you feel better: info@thelighthouse-lephare.ca.
