What is LENS?
LENS stands for low energy neurofeedback system and it is FDA approved for relaxation and self-regulation.The LENS is a form of brain wave biofeedback which helps the brain alter maladaptive brain wave patterns and restore them to a more effective, efficient state. When our brain waves are working most efficiently, we are focused and alert when we are awake, sleep well and our mood is well regulated.
The LENS is a specific kind of neurofeedback that operates much more rapidly than “traditional neurofeedback” and has qualities that make it much easier to use with people who can’t sit still. With the LENS, the client doesn’t need to “do” anything, and there is nothing to learn. The typical session with the LENS lasts 3-4 minutes. LENS helps the brain to heal, it helps to calm down the areas that have been impacted by physical or emotional problems. Treatments are non-invasive, painless, and can lead to a dramatic improvement.
This means that the LENS works well for people who either cannot or will not pay attention to a computer screen for longer time periods like in “traditional neurofeedback.”Additionally, the LENS time frame for success is shorter with the number of sessions ranging from as few as 1 to an overall average number of 11 sessions.
The LENS works well with problems of the Central Nervous System, which can be numerous. These include symptoms of anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits, behavior disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, PMS and emotional disturbances. It is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy. These are all signs of Central Nervous System dysfunction which result in the body’s difficulty regulating itself.
About Ochs Labs
The concept of Low Energy Neurofeedback (which is a completely unique form of “brain optimization”) was first introduced by Len Ochs in the 1980s. After introducing his ideas to several national forums, he established Ochs Labs to further develop and hone Low Energy Neurofeedback concepts and the technology behind it. Since then our providers and their patients have reported many forms of success using our unique and effective form of neurotherapy. Over 85% of people who have used the LENS have benefited significantly from it. Results can be seen quickly, often beginning within the first session, and are lasting.
Unlike traditional neurofeedback sessions, LENS:
1) Does not require conscious effort and attention to stimuli by the client.
2) Sessions last, on average, a few seconds to minutes each.
3) The number of sessions, on average, hovers around 11 necessary sessions.
