This technology is a very unique form of neurofeedback.  It offers quick treatments and is easily utilized with those who cannot sit still or focus; making it a great tool for those with ASD, ADHD, anxiety, and other developmental disorders.  Results are noticed as early as the first treatment and patients continue to improve weeks and months after treatment.  Precise, safe, gentle, and effective, LENS is an incredible tool for restoring optimal brain function.  If you struggle with issues from a traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention problems, anger, explosiveness, poor memory, brain fog, or other mental health concerns, this therapy is for you.

“LENS is like a reset button that unlocks the brain for optimum functioning. Neuroscientists believe that the brain’s defenses against stressors and trauma create neural gridlock. The Low Energy Neurofeedback System works around these blockages addressing the brain in its own electromagnetic language. LENS allows the brain to “reboot,” restoring optimal functioning.”

LENS FAQ'

 

Who can benefit from the LENS?

 

Children, teens and adults who experience:

  • AD/HD - decreases distractibility and impulsivity, and increases focus and the ability to concentrate. Life becomes much easier and manageable and less of a struggle.

  • Anxiety - decreases anxiety and the tendency to worry.  It helps patients to live life with less fear and with a greatly improved ability to relax, to better handle stress, and to face challenges with a sense of calm and resilience.

  • OCD, Autism, Aspergers, Tics - can help reduce or eliminate OCD,  increase social awareness and sensitivity in individuals with Autism and Aspergers, and to reduce or eliminate the tendency in individuals with tics.

  • Depression – including depression that has been resistant to other types of treatments.  It can increase energy, focus, brighten mood and outlook, and help begin to restore a sense of hope and healing.

  • Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Multiple or Environmental Sensitivities - helps with increasing energy, decreasing fatigue and pain, restoring mental clarity and enhancing memory.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Concussion - In mild and moderate TBI, LENS has helped improve concentration, focus, memory, energy, clarity, and the ability to multitask. 

 

What symptoms can LENS help with?

 

  • Cogntion - Problems sequencing, memory, providing and maintaining attention, concentration, clarity and organization.

  • Mood - Anger, sadness, explosiveness.

  • Motor - Lack of grace, problems of eye-hand coordination, balance, increased muscle tone (from spasticity) and tremor.

  • Motivation - Problems initiating tasks, shifting from one activity to another, or completing tasks.

  • Anxiety - Problems of anxiety system activity (too much uncomfortably-contained energy), persistent "anxiety", restlessness, rumination, agitation, distractibility, difficulty breathing, palpitations, tremor exacerbation, and sleep interruption.

  • Reactivity - Hyperreactivity, hypersensitivity, multiple chemical sensitivities.

  • Pain - Brain-generated pain (mismapping the origins and qualitites of signals), and vascular pain.

  • Addictions/Dependencies - Lack of clarity about emotions and self-comforting, defensiveness, argumentativeness and cynicism.

  • Fatigue - Low energy or fatigue as a phenomenon secondary to the effort of trying to overcome the pain and/or the above impediment to functioning more easily.

  • Performance Optimization - Increases functioning in the above areas in absence of diagnosis.  Athletes love the LENS!

 

What is the success rate of LENS?

 

Among the vast majority of patients (greater than 95%), the actual outcome of LENS exceeds their prior expectations.  The changes that can be produced may even appear miraculous.  With over 25 years of experience with the LENS, we have reached the point of having very high expectations for success in treatment (~97%).  When such success is not forthcoming, or if the gains cannot hold, then there is usually another factor to investigate.  In the normal course of events, neurofeedback ought to work with everybody.  That is to say, nearly everyone should make gains that they themselves would judge to be worthwhile.  Lasting results can be seen quickly, often beginning within the first session.

 

Is it Safe?

 

Yes, it is safe form of neuraltherapy that provides gentle treatment that improves brain and nervous system function.  It is an FDA approved device that facilitates changes in people of all ages with a wide variety of symptoms and deficits.  The technology was developed over 25 years ago by Ochs Labs, Inc. and is backed by a large body of growing research and evidence for its effectiveness. 

What Should I Expect During a Treatment?

The first visit is a comprehensive intake to assess at which pace to proceed.  During treatment, a single sensor is applied to the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity.  This information is processed by computer and information about certain key brainwave frequencies is extracted.  The information is then utilized to produce an electromagnetic signal to the person’s skin.  The system does all of this within a matter of seconds.  The results are reduction and/or elimination of the symptoms which previously interfered with the patient’s quality of life.  The sessions are brief (usually 3-5 minutes), gentle (the patient feels nothing during the session), and the changes are lasting.
