LENS Neurofeedback Therapy
What is LENS Neurofeedback Therapy?
Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) Therapy helps restore brain wave balance following a head or emotional trauma. This type of therapy helps to alleviate many post-trauma symptoms and is approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
How Does LENS Work?
We all know individuals who are rigid and inflexible, who are stuck in patterns of thinking and feeling that make them miserable, and yet they just can’t seem to change. Some people struggle because they seem to be perpetually stuck in overdrive — unable to wind down at the end of the day, or even to sit still for very long without excessive fidgeting, foot tapping, knuckle cracking, or frequent smoking breaks. Other people seem to be perpetually shut down emotionally and physically, with a sad, downcast appearance, low energy, and minimal interaction with others.
These patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving are both psychological and physiological. Releasing suppression and reducing excess activity in the brain allows the person to begin to feel that change is possible, so they can begin to make new choices and form new habits. Psychotherapy combined with LENS neurofeedback treatment is optimal in these cases. LENS helps make the brain more flexible and therapy provides the support and coaching for how to make changes and develop new patterns in how we deal with our thoughts and emotions.
What is the Length of Neurofeedback Treatment?
Neurofeedback training at Cognitive Solutions Learning Center in Chicago consists of a series of thirty-minute sessions. A typical treatment program requires 20 to 40 training sessions. Because Neurofeedback is a learned skill, improvement is gradual and occurs over time. Some individuals may need more training to achieve the full benefits of the therapy. Improvements in attention, organization, and behavior are typically well retained on a long- term basis.
