What Is LENS Neurofeedback Therapy

LENS Neurofeedback is an innovative, effective and natural therapeutic approach that teaches self-control of brain functions. By measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal, Clients can balance and normalize their brain function and better regulate their body. Considered a “non-traditional” low energy neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback, LENS focuses on electrical brain activity without the use of any audio or visual stimulation. LENS works to lift suppression in the brain allowing the brain to be more flexible and function more optimally. Being able to self-regulate is a necessary part of optimal brain performance and function thus allowing the nervous system to function better.

What to expect during your LENS Neurofeedback Sessions

LENS is a very safe low energy type of therapy. During your sessions a therapist attaches sensors to the client’s head in order to record their brainwaves (EEG waves). For only a few seconds, LENS mirrors back the brain’s faint electromagnetic impulses. This brain-mirroring allows dysfunctional patterns in the brain to reorganize and optimize functions. The information signal is far weaker than the electromagnetic field around a watch, yet it typically triggers the brain to make profound, lasting changes. The first session with our therapists lasts between 45 and 50 minutes. Subsequent sessions typically last between 15 and 30 minutes.
