LENS NeuroFeedback

LENS does not require any focused attention. The sessions themselves last between a few seconds and a few minutes.  Improve your daily life functioning, from working memory to long-term memory, reading ability, problem-solving, clarity of mind and the capacity for insight. What if you could enjoy relief from anxiety, depression, problems sleeping, and cravings?

Neuroscientists now recognize that our brains are capable of reorganizing and healing from unhealthy patterns. This reorganization of our neural pathways might be the result of trauma, such as a traumatic brain injury, or due to anxiety and stress.

Like a computer hard drive, portions of the brain can become fragmented and disconnected. We use LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System)—a technology that interrupts problematic neural patterns and causes a shift toward more productive and efficient brain function.


Therapists can now directly address dysfunctions in your child’s brain. LENS neurofeedback resets the brain for optimal functioning, without drugs, effort, or belief by the child.” —Grant Rudolph, MFT “A 2006 study using neurofeedback showed a 40% reduction in autistic symptoms, enhancement of function between the brain and behavior, and reduction of hyper connectivity….”

Explosive Anger

“We now know that certain compulsive behaviors, rituals and repetitive behaviors, tics, emotional outbursts, and even grand mal seizures, all have their basis in the neurology of the brain. Using LENS we have found a valuable, often effective and drug-free approach to calming the nervous systems in its hurricane and tsunami moods… and ultimately helping it develop its own spontaneous ability to suppress seizures.” —Steven Larsen, PHD


“Neurofeedback treatments for depression appears very promising in bringing relief from depression. LENS Neurofeedback focuses on retraining the brain, for example, reversing the frontal brainwave asymmetry, with the goal of producing an enduring change that does not require people to remain on medication indefinitely.” —D. Corydon Hammond, PhD

Explosive Anger

“We have had lots of opportunities with incipient or even full-blown migraines [for Low Energy Neurofeedback]. The results can be dramatic: often the headache is aborted on the spot or its severity is greatly reduced.” “With the decrease of physical pain, there is an improvement in energy because, as Len Ochs says, one recovers all the energy one previously spent defending against the pain.” —Steven Larsen, PhD


Post-traumatic Stress is a significant problem in the US, especially with the returning of Veterans. LENS can dramatically and effectively decrease the anxiety associated with PTSD. It helps to improve sleep, and restore a sense of calm and inner peace. Staff Sgt.Roberts, doesn’t care how neurofeedback works — only that it does. Despite being told by doctors that he’d never be healthy enough to return to his former life as a police officer in Dallas, Roberts is back at work — and credits neurofeedback with the turnaround.” —The Daily “My body feels more relaxed. I feel mellow. It feels as though my entire body has undergone spell-check.” 68-year-old female with PTSD

Peak Performance

“I notice myself less and less stuck on self-criticism or negative witness of my own performance. Perhaps the most noticeable thing is reduction of performance anxiety. Routines are acquired relatively easily.” —Lauri Whalen

The Healing Power of Neurofeedback, by Stephen Larsen, Ph.D

“According to the Centers for Disease Control, each year 260,000 people are hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries. The Brain Injury Association reports 1.5 million injuries annually, many of which go undiagnosed but which can lead to various cognitive and emotional impairments. Traditionally the methods for resolving these impairments have been limited to drug therapy or surgery. His book explores an alternative, highly effective technique of restoring brain function: the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS).

Developed by Dr. Len Ochs in 1990 and is FDA approved. It has had extraordinary results using weak electromagnetic fields to stimulate brain-wave activity and restore brain flexibility and responsiveness. The treatment works across a broad spectrum of human activity – both on the basic functional level and in the more subtle areas of cognitive, affective, and spiritual processes that make us truly human.

Researcher Stephen Larsen also sees it as an important alternative to chemical approaches for such chronic behavioral disorders as anxiety, ADHD, bipolar depression, and childhood developmental disorders.”
