From achieving athletic and academic personal bests to improving health and function, these are what clients can experience with a better trained CNS.
"In the amount of time I had purchased NeurOptimal I have had even more improvements. I have used most other neurofeedback that neuropsychologist have recommended and I would always leave their office worse than when I went in, and they would blame me for not improving. I even use this with my 3 year old nephew with no side effects. My mom was having different medical problems as well. Using NeurOptimal she has more energy and is sleeping better. She was having problems with blood pressure and catching her breath- All of that has been improving.
So thank you for everything!"

"Just wanted to tell you I tried your suggestion using the system while working. Wow. It was like brain steroids. Crazy. :)"
"The NeurOptimal® sessions virtually eliminated my PMS symptoms! No fretting, worrying, irritability...I can't adequately express how lovely that was! :)" and
"Had great results with my NeurOptimal® sessions this month: noticeable improvement in mood, energy and focus/concentration!"

"A clear example of 'seamless change':
My mother had one session before I left for Europe. Told me the next day it did nothing. When I came back from Europe she was shocked to realize that she stopped taking tylenol and advil. She took 6 tylenols/day for the past 10 yrs due to herniated disk and chronic back pain, had problem sleeping, and always felt anxious. After only one session, she is not taking her tylenol, sleeps better and feels better!!!! For me it is a miracle. It took her 3 weeks to realize it. A colleague told me that the client with chronic pain knows well when they have pain but don't notice right away when it goes away. The results are encouraging".

"NeurOptimal® can profoundly shift the way we see ourselves in the world; our boundaries within our self and the outside world shift. We become very clear in what we want and do not want in our lives."

"I think NeurOptimal® is possibly one of the best uses we have come up with for 'technology' yet."

"Hi, I just wanted to tell you how amazing I think the Zengar system is. I got into it because I am fascinated by the brain and was even interested in becoming a neuroscientist. But going back to school did not look so appealing. Then I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in awhile and she told me she was a trainer in neuro-feed back and introduced me to your system. I became a trainer and bought my own personal system.
I first learned to meditate when I was 15 back in '71 and I love to meditate. I was really interested in the neuro- feedback as a way to increase the effectiveness of the meditation.
Just last fall I spent 10 days at a silent Vipassana retreat learning to meditate according to the teachings of Buddha. It was different than the Transcendental Meditation I first learned and the Kriya Meditation I had been practicing for the last 10 years. In any case I found the Vipassana technique much more effective as a tool to focus the mind.
My passion in life is self-awareness, self-realization, or whatever you prefer to call it. I found this last meditation technique to be profound in it's ability to help me see the layers of my being and my mind. Lately, the neuro-feedback sessions have been stimulating aha moments after every session in the following meditation and it has been so awesome.
I know that these are wondrous times that we live in, and this year seems to be catapulting my awareness into the stratosphere. So to have the combination of the sessions helping me align my brain and then have the meditation illuminate the thought and behavior patterns is truly a gift.
thank you so very much."

''My family (children aged 6, 9 and 11 and their parents) attended the NeurOptimal “gym for the brain” over the course of summer 2011. We experienced this as a gentle yet profound transformation. The emotional tone of our family has changed for the better: since the parents are able to be more relaxed (yet on top of things more of the time), the children intuitively respond in a positive way. In turn, because the children are more compliant (and joyful), it reinforces the parents’ confidence in their role and the hope that “things are going to be OK”. A kind of 'virtuous circle'. Husband and wife are able to rediscover themselves and each other. Stressful situations do happen, but we get out of the frustration zone much quicker. A child with social and attention issues is now able to peacefully focus on homework and deal better with the stresses of daily life.
While I used to excessively worry about a number of things, parasite thoughts have now disappeared. As I see it, neurofeedback with NeurOptimal opened the gates of personal transformation, releasing the positive energy that had accumulated over years of trying to bring about change in my life.''

"NeurOptimal® with Marie-Laure Wagner (NeurOptimal® Trainer in CA) has been a blessing. I initially started the sessions to 'reprogram' the negative thinking that had been taking a toll on my marriage. But the sessions worked much deeper than I had imagined. We discovered and were able to work on the deep trauma that affected all aspects of my life. Now my marriage is moving towards harmony and better communication. NeurOptimal® has eliminated these deep issues that keep me stuck in the same patterns. The added benefit is my overall clarity. I not only perform better in my relationship, but I handle the stress of work and motherhood with remarkable ease these days."
M.W. 32 years old, female, CA
"I just want to tell you about a case of mine. This kid is so disturbed [he] was being psychiatrically hospitalized about once a month-violent, non-compliant, uncooperative, defiant,etc.,etc. After the first session the parents noticed a significant change. Today is his 4th session, and his dad said that they have never seen him like this since the day he was placed with them. He's been calm, cooperative, he has apologized when he has gotten angry.
Today is the first time he has spoken to me. In the four weeks that I have seen him. Today was also the first day that he did not beg to stop three or four times throughout the session. I am slow to proclaim 'miracles' but this has been true change and quick change. Hopefully, it will be sustained."
G.K., Ohio, USA
"...as you know, the day did not start well with [my son] refusing to go to school. But before taking him late, we had him do a 45 minute session. His teachers just told us he had an exceptionally good day. mission accomplished :-)"
Greg, California, USA
"Good morning. I have excellent news. Yesterday was [my son’s] birthday and he had the best birthday present possible. He had a full day without a seizure. This is the first seizure-free day he's had since early October. We did two trainings yesterday and plan to do two today. Just thought I'd share that."

"I have a 6year old boy (client) with autism, that didn’t speak. After the first 10 min (the first session of NeurOptimal®) he started to speak more and more efficiently."

"My research project with a school specializing in (learning disabled) kids trained six ADD/LD kids 3xs a week for 40 sessions. Four out of five began reducing their medications early on, within first 12 sessions, and by 20 sessions had stabilized at 10mgs reduction. One did not have to go on meds when she was expected to need to. All exceeded in their academics, test scores, and at least half mainstreamed back into regular high school the following year. Four years later, I've been in contact with at least half the kids and they are doing really well, even honors in mainstream high school."
Shannon Warwick, NeurOptimal® Trainer, Hornby Island, BC
"I had been working with a family… The daughter was 9 and had a rather severe case of Autism, no language, awful physical tantrums, beating her Mother until she was bruised. (The child) came to me and we did intense sessions for a month usually seeing each other 2 times a day. She left me able to speak in 5 word sentences, no more tantrums at all, was potty trained, and watching more than one movie (changing her own videos). These were enormous changes for this family! (The Child’s) behavior was so much better; she was sleeping through the night and feeling happy during the day. Her cognitive abilities changed drastically at home and at school."

"An eight year old (client) autistic male who was very anxious around people and who would cling to his mother and not enter a room if other people were in the room. He now runs up to the secretaries and hugs everyone. He recently wrote a booklet about what 'bad food" does to your body and passed it out at a Green Festival. He and his siblings, whom I also see, are recovered from autism."
Mary Price, Tidewater Neurofeedback Center, Mt. Pleasant, SC
"I'm quite impressed with the speed at which I see improvement in the kids with ADD. I first started NeurOptimal® with my 10 years old son three years ago and saw amazing results after just five sessions. He enjoyed watching the movies and we completed 20 sessions. His grades showed a definite improvement, at last he could concentrate enough to read a book and he felt much calmer and more confident in school. He recently came to ME and asked for a tune up!"
L.H., Biot, France
"A number of boys with ADHD who after five to eight sessions report feeling "normal" - that they can now control their reactions "just like the other kids can". They feel like they are now the same as others and that they fit in with the rest of the group. Recently a 15yo boy (13 sessions so far) told me about recommending NeurOptimal® to his 15yo mate who he usually spent time in detention with after getting into trouble at school. My client reported that he now would tell his mate to "forget it" when he suggested that they get into mischief, and was now quite intolerant of his mate's attitudes and behaviours, and was spending less and less time hanging around with him."

"I have been impressed with how quickly NeurOptimal® moderates the symptoms of PTSD with Vietnam Veterans. The extreme reactivity, expressed as angry criticism and/or verbal abuse of family members moderates after three or four sessions, as do the sleep problems and hyper-vigilance."
Terry Eichmann, Brisbane, Australia
"Seeking an alternative to anti-depressants, NeurOptimal® has allowed me to be the person I was meant to be. Family members plus friends alike (have) noticed an improvement in my overall demeanor. I am happier, more easygoing plus less stressed. It has allowed me to see and make choices in the way that I think, eliminating old negative patterns. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you."
S.M. San Marcos, CA, U.S.A
"With multiple symptoms including depression, fatigue and lack of concentration, my daughter was on many medications including Cymbalta, Prozac and Adderal. After the first [NeurOptimal®] appointment she dropped 1 Cymbalta pill (1/2 dose), the next day she had another "training" and dropped the other Cymbalta pill (no more Cymbalta) with no side affects. The next week she dropped her Prozac with no side affects. The third week she dropped Adderal with slight side affects for 2 days. She had been on these and similar meds for 5 years to address her symptoms, without getting results. With the NeurOptimal® sessions she is free from the symptoms of depression, fatigue and lack of concentration and is no longer taking the medications."

"A 37 year old woman. Diagnosed depression with multi-personality disorder and has had clouds (smog) in her head for years. After three sessions, the smog was gone. After 39 sessions the depression had resolved. After about 29 sessions, she forgot to take her anti-depression medication resulting in the fact that she did not need to take any anti-depression medication anymore. The multi-personality disorder had also resolved for the greater part."

"I have been sleeping SO WELL since the sessions. I don't wake up once during the night whereas I used to wake up 3 or 4 times in the night and I usually wake up before my alarm & I feel wide awake and rested. I'm lovin' it!!!"
C.M. Montreal, Quebec (after 2 sessions)
"Woman with 15 years of bad sleep-pattern (was) sleeping three hours a day, waking up at 2.00am and not able to sleep again. After seven sessions she started to sleep seven hours, non-stop. All symptoms disappeared gradually: depression, suicidal feelings, dizziness, etc. No meds anymore, still stable (training is 4 years ago)."

"Training with NeurOptimal® has been a life-changing process for me and the vast majority of my patients, friends and family members in ways that are subtle, seamless and even difficult to define in some ways, yet rather direct and so clearly obvious in other ways. In my opinion as a scientist, clinician and Interfaith minister it truly is the most powerful, sophisticated, advanced, non-linear technology available for transformation on the planet!"
Edward O’Malley Ph.D., Director, Sleep Healthcare of Connecticut
"This morning I woke up after a continuous 7.5 hours of sleep, something that hasn't happened in years. In addition, I opened my eyes and realized I felt happy. Wow. If you knew me previously you would agree that this borders on the miraculous. This all after just four sessions I gave to myself since I received the system. I'm so thrilled."
