LENS Neurofeedback is a micro electromagnetic field that shows the brain how to reset itself for optimal performance. Clients typically report feeling relaxed and calm with heightened mental clarity and steady emotional resilience. LENS Neurofeedback is not a specific treatment for any one condition, but a general regulation of the central nervous system. New balance in the brain often results in better sleep, focus and moods that together reduces or eliminates most disorders and symptoms.
What to Expect
LENS is very safe and medication-free. During the session 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 wrist watch, yet it typically triggers the brain to make profound, lasting changes.
In the first session, 86%, notice improvements and nearly every client experience improvement by the third session. Depending on the symptoms and disorder, a typical course of treatment is between 15 and 25 sessions. Positive changes endure months and years after the final session.
Benefits of LENS
Clients usually report feeling clear, calm, and fully present immediately after neurofeedback. The progression of states experienced by clients follows a predictable pattern that parallels traditional meditation benefits. These benefits include letting go of sticky emotional states like malice and wanting, balancing energy between emotional and behavioral extremes, and knowing what can and can’t be done. When this initial centering has cleared the big distractions away from being fully present, clients progress through increased awareness, clarity, energy, joy, calm, focus, and contentment.
LENS is a safe and effective for children, adolescents, and adults. LENS has been shown to be particularly effective with children and has been used to treat ADD and ADHD, behavioral problems, and a variety of other brain health conditions.
LENS Neurofeedback has been extensively researched and has been demonstrated remarkable efficacy for a variety of different conditions. Learn more about the science of LEN Neurofeedback on our Research Section
LENS Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment during which people often report feeling comfortable and calm. In over a million sessions, there have been no significant side effects. Because the brain responds to LENS by reorganizing itself, there may be a new awareness of existing symptoms, such as feeling fatigued, wired, or light-headed. These short-term feelings tend to correct themselves quickly.

It is not necessary to be off medications, drugs, or alcohol before LENS treatment. Please communicate with your prescribing physician about your changing needs for medication. Many people report decreasing their use of medication, and feeling less interested in recreational drugs and alcohol after treatment with LENS.
