LENS Neurofeedback

The LENS or Low Energy Neurofeedback System, is a unique and effective form of neurotechnology that targets the central nervous system to help it reorganize itself.  It utilizes real-time brain waves to help alleviate symptoms and optimize functioning. This is an all-natural, noninvasive, low energetic form of “neurotherapy” that helps our brain/body reset. This resetting is what gives way to the reclaiming of our full body and mind potential.  

Neurofeedback is helping children and adults regulate their central nervous system and experience overall relief. It gets to the root cause of mental, emotional, and physical ailments, and seeks to disrupt the patterns that cause them. This restores balance to the central nervous system, thus improving functioning.  

Neurofeedback is helpful for a multitude of mental health (and even physical health) struggles such as:  

  • Ruminations
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Restlessness
  • Sadness
  • Explosiveness
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Distractibility
  • Depression
  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Grief

HOW DOES LENS NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?

LENS Neurofeedback is a form of low energy technology that holds up a mirror to the central nervous system helping it to re-organize itself. The way it does this is by taking preexisting waves in our system, both brain and body, and seeking out the highest amplitude wave it can find.   

In a matter of seconds, it has located the highest amplitude wave, copied it and sent it back to the brain or part of the body. The reason the system seeks out the highest amplitude wave is that high amplitude is correlated to low functioning.  

Knowing we are electrical beings and that we have electrical frequencies within us helps to understand why small doses of electrical frequencies are used in this form of “neurotherapy”. The lens system only utilizes 0.000000000000000001 watts/cm2 to perform its “magic”. That equals to 1 trillionth of a watt, which is millions of times lighter in intensity of frequency than holding a phone to your ear.  

These electrical frequencies being mirrored back to the brain help to lift what is called “suppression”. Suppression means that there is suppressed activity in a certain area of the brain that can cause diverse symptoms. In short, it compromises functioning. This suppression can be caused by bumps to the head, aversive life experiences, medications, environmental influences, etc.  

Think of it like this. There are things in our life, such as trauma, that cause accidents on the “highway” of optimal functioning. This creates jams and blockages (aka suppression) that make the brain create detours. These detours are never as effective. The LENS system helps to lift these blockages, clearing the debris so that we may return to the traditional highway of optimal functioning.

We have five therapists in our office currently that are trained to operate the Lens Neurofeedback system. These clinicians utilize the Lens system on their current therapeutic clients and are able to see new clients whom only want neurofeedback. The great benefit of trusting us to facilitate your neurofeedback journey is that we have the license and skill to help you monopolize on all that neurofeedback is giving you. To explain, with neurofeedback, the goal is greater overall functioning. This can mean a multitude of things including:  

We can help you take these “wins” and see them through in your life. You see, the Lens system brings you back to a baseline of optimal overall functioning but it does not teach you how to process through and manage stressors of life. By combining neurofeedback and therapy, you can better ensure your anxiety stays decreased, your productivity is maintained, your energy is best utilized, etc

If you are interested in beginning LENS Neurofeedback at Brittani Persha Counseling, please give us a call at 713-364-8645 or schedule a FREE phone consultation using the link below. We look forward to hearing from you!

fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No. You shouldn’t be able to feel the Lens machine working. Although, some clients have reported feeling a “tingling” sensation.  

For our current clients who want to utilize Lens in addition to therapy within their therapy session, it is an additional $50 on top of their therapy fee.  

For our current clients who want to utilize Lens in addition to therapy outside of their therapy session, it is $100 per Lens session.   

For those who are brand new clients, whom only want Lens, it is $200 for the first session. This allows us to gather client history and fill out questionnaires. Each Lens session afterwards will be $100.  

Yes! We highly suggest those who want to go through the Lens protocol, to seek out therapeutic support as well. Like mentioned above, this allows for the client to best monopolize on all that the Lens is giving you.  

Glad you asked! We can perform the Lens procedure within the client’s therapy session; however, this is going to take away about 15-20 minutes of their session time. This might not seem like a lot but it can have a significant impact on what gets done therapeutically in session. We encourage our clients to schedule an additional time to come in for the Lens procedure. It only takes 20 minutes of your time and you will get the full benefits of both therapy and Lens.  

There are no needles whatsoever. The only things being placed on your body are the sensors which require some prep gel and paste to apply. These sensors are about the size of the top of a pencil eraser  

This is what is ideal! Can you imagine the impact if everyone in the family was working with a brain that was optimally functioning? Because we are so passionate about the life-changing benefits Lens can have on the family, we are offering:  

Buy one get one ½ off lens sessions  

This means if you and a family member decide to utilize the Lens, the second family member gets a 50% reduction in session price.  

Most clients need about 8-12 sessions to feel the full effects of the Lens; however, this can be more or less depending on the client. You can also come back every few months for “maintenance” if you choose.  

We are currently not utilizing the Lens on any pregnant clients. Lens has been known to increase tinnitus (ringing in the ear). You may not be a good candidate if you struggle with this condition.  

Each LENS session is about 15-20 minutes.

The founder of this system was very serious about the idea of “do no harm”. The Lens cannot hurt you. However, there is the possibility of four things following a Lens session:  

Tiredness  

Wiredness (excess energy)  

Irritability  

Anxiousness  

These effects are temporary and should only last up to 2 days following the Lens procedure.  

In addition, if you struggle with any of the following, you may see a temporary increase of these:  

Tics  

Cluster headaches 

Headaches  

Migraines  

Seizures  

Tourette’s  

Stuttering  

Explosiveness  

This is because we are shaking things up in the brain. This can cause for symptoms to temporarily increase before coming back down again and possibly alleviating.
