About Neurofeedback and NeuroFit Technologies
NeuroFit Technologies is run by retired school teacher Lorraine Korobanik, BA, B.Ed. Lorraine moved into this area of healthcare after experiencing the miracle of neurofeedback herself. Plagued by daily chronic headaches for almost 30 years, Lorraine sought relief via conventional methods of medication, massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, naturopathy, and acupuncture - to no avail. After several sessions with the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system, her headaches were gone, and she remains headache-free. Having a new lease on life, Lorraine is now helping people of all ages improve their health and wellness as a neurofeedback technician and personal trainer.
NeuroFit Technologies believes in providing clients a warm, friendly, relaxed atmosphere in which they can receive holistic, non-invasive, effective and affordable brain training sessions.
Before the Session
You will be seated comfortably in a zero-gravity recliner facing a monitor. Tiny sensors are attached to your ears and scalp in order to pick up the signals of the delicate electrical activity of your brain. You will then be given earbuds and a blanket, should you wish to use one. The session will then commence: you will hear music through the earbuds, and you can simply sit back and relax while the program does its work.
During the Session
As you listen to the music within the NeurOptimal® software, you will notice very brief pauses in the sound. The precise timing of these subtle interruptions give your brain vital information it needs to reorganize itself to operate more optimally. Like a dance, the neurofeedback system and your brain adapt to each other on a moment-to-moment, real-time basis. Nothing invasive is involved in your brain training session.
You do not need to do anything while this is happening - it is fine to close your eyes and "zone out" - your brain will do its job automatically. With repeated training sessions, your brain learns to “reset” itself quicker and functions more smoothly, meaning you are increasing your brain's neuroplasticity.
After the Session
Once the 33 minute session is complete, the music will stop and your neurofeedback provider will remove the sensors and clean off the conductor paste from your scalp and ears. Because the NeurOptimal® system does not push your brain in any one "direction" during training, it is highly unlikely you will feel any side effects following training. Any noticeable shifts in mood, awareness or energy levels varies from person to person and from session to session. Most clients report subtle changes after six sessions - this too varies from person to person; see the Pricing tab for more information on how many sessions you might need.
