“Just letting you know my daughter got 1st in Maths test today. She has always been average at Maths. Huge improvments in one month. Mind blowing really. The training also gave her more confidence as she lacked confidence towards maths. Changed the emotion towards it from negative to positive.
My name is Diana Fischer. I have had tremendous success using NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Systems both personally and professionally. I began using it personally in my sixties to help me with medical issues related to aging and have received multiple benefits as a result. I found that it helps with focus and concentration, relief of anxiety, pain management, reducing stress and other medical-related issues. As a meditator, with over 40 years of experience, I find that NeurOptimal® helps me access deep states of meditation and is also wonderful for emotional, physical and mental health.
As an MFT, I have worked with families for 35 years. Many of the children have special needs, such as children adopted from maltreatment histories, traumatic brain injuries, ADHD, mood disorders and other issues. Over and over again, I have seen that neurofeedback helps these kids and families.
In all these years, I have tried a number of neurofeedback systems. Craig Walker introduced me to NeurOptimal® and I find it to be superior to these other systems. It’s safe, comprehensive and adaptive approach to neurofeedback is simple for both the trainer and the client and I am seeing remarkable and sometimes amazing changes. It is an essential training for families with special needs.
NeurOptimal® has a home/personal trainer that is every bit as simple and safe as the professional version. It is my hope that adoptive and special needs families will join together to buy and share systems so more people can benefit from this remarkable system. In time, I believe that NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Systems will soon become a household item. It works and I am thrilled with this system.

For many NeurOptimal users, brain training with NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is almost an undescribable life-altering experience. In this video, you can watch our trainers comment on the remarkable transformations they have witnessed first hand with their clients after using the NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback system. We call it “Miracles Every Day”.
Jean Alvarez shares her story of overcoming the neurological issues associated with cancer and cancer treatment – aka chemobrain – and how she used NeurOptimal® neurofeedback to overcome it. You can also read the results of Dr. Alvarez’ chemobrain study here.
“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.”

“Yes, we see miracles all the time. Your daughter is experiencing one of them”.
The most gratifying aspect of being a neurofeedback professional is witnessing complete – almost miraculous – transformations in the lives of your clients.
One such client is an eight-year-old little girl. She attends a special school for children with multiple psychological disorders and severe behavioral issues. I provide NeurOptimal® neurofeedback sessions there once a week.
We first met two weeks ago. Her mother explained to me that her daughter was autistic and suffered from severe failure anxiety. She typically avoided eye-contact with strangers and would not shake hands on a first meeting.
Her mother and I went to her classroom and asked her to come with us for her first neurofeedback session. Seeing her mother, the girl agreed to come with us. I kneeled down in front of her, and gave her my hand; she took it and told me her name. I heard her mother whisper, “wow!”.
Hooking her up with the neurofeedback machine with the NeurOptimal® sensors for the first time was challenging – she was afraid to be touched on the earlobes. I allowed her to attach the sensors herself after demonstrating on her pet cat.
During the brain training session, she watched part of a movie called “Spetter” – a story about a Dolphin. The session went well and when it was over, she smiled, looked at her mother and said: “NICE!”
The family went home for the weekend the came back the next Friday.
Same girl, same school, same movie, Part II.
Her mother couldn’t stop talking about the changes they’d witnessed in their daughter the week before. The Saturday morning after the first neurofeedback session, she and her husband were awakened early by the sound of a child whistling in their garden.
They went outside to find their daughter dancing in their sun-covered-garden, whistling tunes. When the girl saw her parents, she threw them a smile and said: “Look, there is the sun, and now I can hear the birds. The dance has been stuck in my head but now it is free”.
The mother looked at her husband when he asked: “Could this be possible? After one neurofeedback session?” She said: “Yes, it must be! Nothing else has changed.”
When the mother told me this story, I said, “Yes, we see miracles all the time. Your daughter is experiencing one of them”.
ABOUT THE TRAINER: NeurOptimal® Trainer Hannie Ruinen first tried NeurOptimal® neurofeedback on herself 12 years ago to mitigate severe postpartum depression. The experience was so transformative that she integrated NeurOptimal® into her life coaching practice. Today, her neurofeedback training clients include special needs children, professional ballet dancers as well as members of the Netherlands Royal Concert Orchestra. She lives in Roermond, Netherlands with her husband and three children.
“Hi, I just wanted to tell you how amazing I think the [NeurOptimal®] 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 neurofeed 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.”
