So, What is Brain Training?

At Open Mind, we use NeurOptimal Neurofeedback to improve brain function. "Brain training"  is training the brain to be more present, where the brain can clear old patterns, and be more effective in each moment. Neurofeedback brain training can be best described as "meditation in hyper speed". All the benefits of being self-aware, but without the work! It is a safe, natural, non-invasive, side-effect free way to improve overall quality of life by restoring natural and healthy brain function.

You can think of the training as when you're day dreaming and someone calls your name and it snaps you back to your present moment. In our modern lives we are rarely present and almost always thinking, worrying or using technology. This means our brains are rarely able to perform properly in our lives which can lead to many problems, symptoms and conditions in the future. Brain training brings the brain back to the present where it can perform and function at its best. Our brain capabilities increase, and our symptoms start to fade away.

Client Testimonials

My best results with NeurOptimal came when I consistently trained once a week this last fall. I was able to stay much calmer during hectic situations at work and accept my changing circumstances more easily. Jake also helped me with diet, exercise and mental strategies that fit my life and I was able to stick with.



After 4 sessions of neurofeedback training with Jake I noticed I had quicker thinking on my feet, my memory seemed to improve and my mind was clearer on a regular basis. Thank you Jake!



Very early on I felt a difference in my level of morning anxiety. I have found the sessions to be very relaxing and enjoyable. I feel more engaged when I’m with friends. I feel more relaxed in general. I will definitely continue with occasional sessions to keep with this feeling of well-being.



I have always struggled in school because of an audio processing disorder my whole life. After my 5th session I was able to focus much better on my work and it isn’t such a stressful experience to finish my homework each day.



After 3 sessions I was able to focus better, organize my work and sleep through the night. I am a mother and business owner with high stress and a sleeping disorder, so I will definitely continue training to bring more ease to my daily life.



I’ve experienced symptoms of ADHD, dyslexia, and a high stress level. I have been doing one session a week for 2 months now and have seen improvements in all these areas and more. It’s always worth it for me to find time in my schedule for a session.

Renette de Beer: NeurOptimal Trainer

Renette de Beer: NeurOptimal Trainer

"Immigrating to Canada at a later stage of life was challenging. As a former teacher, I started volunteering at a local school and alternative learning facility. Still struggling to pull myself out of emotional distress, anxiety, insomnia and a feeling of overwhelm, I was willing to try the NeurOptimal neurofeedback brain training system. Early in training I knew that my brain, being self-organizing and self-correcting would benefit and that I needed to create the condition to support it.

The NeurOptimal training changed my life and I wanted to offer others the opportunity too. My self-confidence, mental clarity, motivation and energy returned. Today I feel unstoppable and excited about new opportunities!

The ability to remain calm and produce the right state, whenever it is necessary, is paramount to learning and brain development for the young child. My passion is to build strong minded, happy and healthy families."

Jake’s neurofeedback Journey

Jake’s neurofeedback Journey

“My experience with NeurOptimal® came on a day I was feeling pretty upbeat. I felt good, there was nothing particularly stressful on my mind, and I was trying out this new technology that could help people in need (but didn’t think it could help me, I already felt great). Although I felt relatively great on this day, I did have some struggles with nervousness, worry, anxiety, stress, and sleep issues. To my surprise after my session I felt clearer, less bombarded with thoughts and more in the moment of my experience. It was very weird to me to have something alleviated that I didn’t even know was affecting me, I thought obsessive thoughts were normal.

As I continued training I felt more and more interesting experiences. I had more confidence, I slept more deeply and fell asleep faster. My movements felt better and my thoughts were more organized and fluid. I felt more joy and less suffering in the most mundane aspects of my daily life. It was awesome.

After so much improvement I was shocked and confused when some difficult feelings still came up. I felt anxiousness, worry, anger, and they all caused me stress because “Why am I feeling this way!? I’m supposed to be free from all negative feelings because of the brain training!” After the feelings passed, as they always would, I realized that the difficult feelings were less intense, and passed much more quickly than they had in the past. I realized that I couldn’t escape experiencing the more ‘uncomfortable” emotions, they are a part of life, but they were dealt with and released much more easily than before.

This brought me to view my life in a slightly different way, more like a ride, like a roller coaster. They both have peaks and valleys, which can’t be avoided, but it was how I perceived and adapted to the ride that ultimately decided my enjoyment level. Could I learn to roll with every up, down and twist of the ride or would I fear and resist every drop and turn, it’s ultimately up to me.

Training my mind with NeurOptimal® to a healthier state has shown me the power of the mind over my life. It has opened my eyes and helped me to make the changes that are best for me, and I’ve decided to share this opportunity with others as well.”
