Echo Rock Neurotherapy’s Insight Neurofeedback combines Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) and mindfulness-meditation to produce long-lasting results.
Decades of research LENS is scientifically proven 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 treatments.
LENS is a very safe procedure during which 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 often includes easy awareness instructions or guided meditations that allow clients to integrate their experience and enhance the effects of the neurofeedback.
Who will it work for?
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 Specialties). You can begin while taking medication. Results are most dramatic for people who have a trauma history, including minor head bumps, and for peopole who have developed steady self-awareness.
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 unwanted emotional states like aversion and clinging, balancing energy between emotional and behavioral extremes, and becoming self-aware. When this initial centering has cleared the big distractions way from being present, clients progress through increased awareness, clarity, energy, joy, calm, focus, and contentment.
LENS Neurofeedback has been extensively researched and has been proven to be effective 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 long-lasting side effects to treatment. 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 in a short amount of time. 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.
