LENS Neurofeedback

LENS stands for Low Energy Neurofeedback System and is a holistic way to address issues interfering with optimal brain functioning. Throughout life, every trauma, accident, emotion, and physical experience is stored in the brain. I find LENS to be a gentle and effective method to assist the brain in reorganizing itself, by letting go of disruptive thoughts and experience-based patterns that until now have been treated primarily with medication and psychological therapies.


With LENS several small electrodes, connected to an EEG amplifier box linked to computer software, are attached to your head to read brainwave patterns. The LENS practitioner then activates a tiny impulse through the specialized software to the electrode, stimulating a localized part of the brain. LENS uses a very low power electromagnetic field, like the ones that surround digital watches, to provide tiny neurofeedback stimulation.

This is completely painless; in fact, you probably won't even notice it. For a fraction of a second an EEG mirrors the brain's patterns back to it, using signals far weaker than a cell phone. Drugs are not involved at all and the results are enduring. All you are asked to do is to relax and enjoy a state of stillness.

The LENS impulse will stimulate the brain to directly reorganize itself and it can therefore affect any symptoms controlled by the central nervous system, such as anxiety, ADD and ADHD, anger, depression, panic attacks, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries and late-term effects of concussions, PTSD, headaches, and stress.



Neuroscientists have discovered that physical brain structures change over time.

Because of such neuroplasticity, neural pathways are flexible and adaptable to overcome patterns that developed through trauma or stress.

LENS addresses and redirects such habitual thought patterns.
