Realizing the Benefits of LENS Therapy
Users of LENS therapy consistently report substantial and lasting benefits. In clinical applications, the LENS system through EEG biofeedback has proven effective in improving both physical and emotional rehabilitation in a short therapy period. This efficiency is crucial in valuing your time, financial resources, motivation, and objectives. Reports from previous LENS clients indicate:
- Reduced issues from physical injuries or psychological trauma.
- Improved functionality at work and personal life
- Enhanced mental clarity, energy, sleep quality, motivation, productivity, memory, and focus.
- Decreased levels of depression, irritability, and impatience
- Normalizes brain function and body regulation

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is LENS?
The Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) is a biofeedback therapy using electromagnetic fields to regulate brainwaves. It offers an innovative and natural approach to emotional regulation through EEG biofeedback. This scientifically proven technique balances and normalizes brain function and body regulation, fostering a crucial brain-body connection for overall wellness.
In LENS therapy, electrical scalp signals are measured and recorded, guiding a feedback signal’s speed via EEG cables with subtle electromagnetic pulses. These affect the quantity and frequency of recorded brainwave signals. LENS stands out by promoting calmer and more adaptable brain waves across different activities, without favoring faster or slower brainwave states.
2. What are the LENS benefits?
The LENS has effectively treated issues related to central nervous system functioning. These include symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury, stroke recovery, fibromyalgia, as well as mood and anxiety disorders. It has also shown promise in addressing attention difficulties, hyperactivity, and anger management. Multiple university and medical human subjects review committees have evaluated the LENS treatment and believe that it is a “minimally invasive” approach.
3. What does LENS involve?
LENS measures and records electrical scalp signals to guide a feedback signal’s speed. This feedback, influenced by the recorded EEG signals, adjusts the quantity and frequency of brainwave signals. The electromagnetic field used is incredibly weak, less than a trillionth of a watt, active only for a few seconds per session. To compare, it’s millions of times weaker than a cellular phone signal and even lower in intensity than that of digital watches. There have been no recorded problems with the feedback emissions, and LENS is an FDA-certified Class II device.
4. What's the timeframe?
Initial improvements with LENS are usually noticeable in 5-10 sessions, with optimal results achieved in about 15-20 sessions. Positive changes can begin as early as the first session and tend to last.
5. What should I know before starting LENS therapy?
To receive this treatment, it’s crucial to maintain your medical stability. Notify your Clinician of any medication changes, especially those affecting your medical condition. Sometimes, reducing medication may be recommended, and your Clinician may suggest consulting your physician.
Since everyone is unique, success with LENS therapy depends on a thorough evaluation and a personalized treatment plan. An online assessment helps predict which symptoms may improve first. While there are no guarantees of success, we invite you to consent to treatment based on this information. Feel free to ask questions and share concerns before granting your consent, and continue to do so throughout the treatment.
6. What is the Procedure?
The brainwave recording process involves cleansing the skin with medical-grade gels and applying electrodes to enhance signal quality. This procedure is non-invasive and relies on specialized equipment to assess and potentially benefit from brainwave signals. During sessions, you’ll relax with your eyes closed, and your brain may detect the feedback, although you won’t consciously notice it. Before each session, you’ll complete a symptom questionnaire and rank your top five symptoms.
7. The treatment duration
You will receive as many sessions as required, with feedback sessions lasting from one second to several minutes. We’ll discuss the feedback’s effects during these sessions, held weekly or biweekly.
Predicting the exact number of sessions is challenging, but based on past experiences:
- For sudden issues after a period of high functionality, you might need around 10-15 sessions, but it can vary.
- If you have lifelong issues and are highly responsive, it could be 20 sessions or more.
- In exceptional cases, like stroke or severe injuries, hundreds of sessions may be necessary for significant improvement.
