Insight LENS Neurofeedback
Insight LENS Echo Rock Neurotherapy’s Insight Neurofeedback combines Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) and mindfulness-meditation to produce long-lasting results. This approach is unique among the practitioners of neurofeedback.
LENS is scientifically demonstrated to be effective for a variety of different conditions and disorders that are related to brain function. It is also used for clients who are interested natural, drug-free, supplementary or reduced treatments.
LENS is very safe. 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 correct themselves. 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.
Most clients (over 86%) often notice improvements immediately, and nearly always within the first three sessions. A typical course of treatment lasts between 15 and 25 sessions, after which positive changes endure.
LENS Insight Treatment at EchoRock includes instructions and guided meditations that allow clients to integrate their experience and enhance the effects of the neurofeedback.
Am I a Good Candidate for Insight Neurofeedback?
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 conditions (please see our Specialties).
Benefits of Insight Neurofeedback?
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.
Neurofeedback has been extensively researched and has been demonstrated remarkable efficacy for a variety of different conditions. Please view our Research page for more information.
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. We offer a free half-hour interview to answer your questions and assess the probability of successful treatment.
It is not necessary to be off medications, drugs, or alcohol before LENS treatment. Please communicate with your prescribing physician about your ever-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. Please see our Addiction page for more information.
