Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS)
The LENS, or Low Energy Neurofeedback System, is a unique, effective, and safe form of neurotherapy that facilitates changes in people of all ages with a wide variety of presenting issues. The LENS is a system that utilizes advanced technology software to track brainwaves in real time, and uses this information to help the brain reset it’s neural-connectivity. It can be used to optimize the functioning of the brain and the rest of the Central Nervous System.
HOW DOES LENS WORK?
The LENS works by disrupting the maladaptive patterns, or looping mechanisms, that the brain has acquired in response to acute conditions such as trauma, concussion, depression, addiction, anoxic event, etc. The LENS encourages the brain to release these inhibitive patterns, and adapt a higher function neural circuitry.
Each client’s EEG signals are unique to them and constantly changing. The LENS measures these ever-changing signals of the client, and matches the treatment to the client’s own physiological (neurological) fingerprint.
WHAT MAKES LENS DIFFERENT?
The LENS is a specific kind of Neurofeedback that operates much more rapidly than traditional Neurofeedback. It does not require any focused attention and the person does not need to do anything specific during the session. The session themselves last between a few seconds and a few minutes, and the results are typically seen in 1 -20 sessions. This makes LENS an excellent option for all individuals, including those who are unable to attend for lengthy periods of time and/or who are unable to understand instructions.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES LENS HELP WITH?
COGNITION – 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, and/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 – Hyper-reactivity, hypersensitivity, multiple chemical sensitivities
PAIN – Brain-generated pain (misshaping the origins and qualities of signals), and vascular pain
ADDICTION/DEPENDENCIES – Lack of clarity about emotions and self-comforting, defensiveness, argumentativeness cynicism
FATIGUE - Sleep issues, nightmares/night terrors, fatigue
PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION – Increases in functioning in the above areas in absence of any diagnosis
ORGANIC BRAIN CONDITIONS – Seizures, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, TBI, and concussions
