The concept of Low Energy Neurofeedback was first introduced by Len Ochs in the 1980s. Since then, providers and their clients have reported many forms of success using this unique and effective form of neurotherapy. It is remarkably effective, and 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.
It may be utilized as the primary treatment modality, or as an adjunct to other therapies. Clients across the lifespan, from young children to older adults, have benefited from LENS.
What makes LENS different from other forms of neurofeedback? Each client’s EEG signals are unique to them and constantly changing. The LENS measures these ever changing signals, and matches the feedback to the client’s own physiological (neurological) fingerprint.
LENS does not require any focused attention, and the client does not need to do anything specific during the session. The sessions themselves last between a few seconds and a few minutes. Initial results are typically seen in 1-4 sessions and the average number of sessions per client is 11. This makes LENS an excellent option for all individuals, including those who are unable to attend for lengthy periods of time and/or who are unable to understand instructions.
