LENS neurofeedback sessions take around 30 minutes, compared to traditional neurofeedback sessions, which take anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. Because LENS sessions are brief, they are ideal for those who have trouble sitting for extended periods of time (e.g., due to agitation or pain).
LENS provides feedback directly to the brain through sensor wires, so the client does not need to focus on specific retraining activities. The client is passive. This makes LENS especially effective for all ages, including children and adolescents. Home practice is not required to increase success of LENS.
Some clients only notice results with traditional neurofeedback after 20 or more sessions. With LENS, we see results within the first few sessions and long-term results are seen within 12-40 sessions.
Great for Complicated Cases
LENS are effective for individuals struggling with multiple symptoms, including physical issues such as chronic pain and fibromyalgia.
Improved Psychotherapy Outcomes
LENS aids the process of psychotherapy by reducing the intensity and severity of symptoms that bring clients to therapy so the emotional issues underlying symptoms can be addressed.
Whole Brain Training
With LENS, we train all areas of the brain, rather than focusing on specific regions. This makes sense given the highly interconnected nature of the brain’s neural networks. LENS is a holistic way of enhancing whole brain functioning.
