The conductive paste that we use to with our EEG leads is the best possible conductive paste product on the market. The purpose of conductive paste is to provide improved "hearing" for the EEG to get clear results. We recommend a generous amount of paste. But lets be real: its sticky, gets on fingers and surfaces and doesn't like to come out of hair. In our office, we provide our clients with water-based baby wipes and warm moistened towels to help clean skin and hair after sessions. For in home use, we also provide our clients with water-based baby wipes, but we also suggest these items: 1. a moist washcloth to remove excess paste from hair 2. a slightly damp washcloth or wiping cloth to clean leads, hands, surfaces 3. coconut oil, in a small quantity, can be used on hair to remove paste residue. It dissolves the paste When removing leads, it is also helpful to lay out a paper towel to place paste-covered leads on. That way, you can set these aside and assist in cleaning the skin and hair of the person getting the session. And don't be shy about using as many wipes as you need to get the paste off. If you are concerned about the environment, many of our rental clients use washcloths to clean leads just as effectively.
We recommend finding a single, quiet space in your home to run sessions. Most clients choose a spare room, home office or a quiet corner of the living room or den to set up their machine. We also strongly recommend that this space be as free of distractions of all kinds - away from the main traffic areas of your home, few or no electronic devices and excess noise. By creating a meditative space you can enhance the benefits of NeurOptimal.
We get this question a lot: can you train more than once in a day? The short answer is, yes! The long answer is: it is truly up to the individual to choose the frequency of training. If you feel like 2 sessions in one day, back to back or spaced out, would be helpful, try it.
Either way you choose to listen to the sound of the NeurOptimal either with the headphones, or using the built in speaker. Either way, you will receive the benefit of brain training. If someone else is present when you are training and hears the skips, they are not receiving the benefit of the training because the skips correlate ONLY to the person connected to the NO by the EEG leads. But do encourage them to stay and hear the relaxing music. Pets love to be in the room also, so invite them in!
We are here to answer question, help resolve technical issues and be a sounding board for issues that arise out of your training. Call, email or text. We usually respond within a few hours if not right away. Our support hours: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday - Friday 11:00 am - 3:00 pm Saturday We are here to help!
