What is LENS Neurofeedback?

The Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) was developed in the early 1990s by Len Ochs, PhD, a psychologist in California. LENS is a computer-based software program that works by picking up the electrical waves of the nervous system through sensors. The sensors pick up key information about your brainwaves and interrupts dysfunctional brainwave patterns - allowing your brain to reboot.

LENS was created as an alternative to medication for nervous system-based issues / conditions. It is safe and effective for kids and adults, showing significant and beneficial results in most people.

Results may include a reduction or elimination in symptoms, increased energy, greater awareness, improved mental and emotional functioning.


What To Expect from

LENS Neurofeedback Sessions

Sessions are conducted in-person with the patient sitting or lying down. 

LENS can be applied to the head or to the body:


When done on the head, a clip-on earring-like sensor is placed each earlobe and 1-2 flat sensors are placed on the scalp. NuPrep skin gel is applied first to the skin to remove dead skin cells; then an electrode paste is applied to the sensors to help with electrical conductivity. When done on the body, five 1" diameter gel electrodes are placed on the body (not on the head).


The program runs anywhere from 1 second to a few minutes per "run". Sometimes only one "run" is done per session, sometimes up to 3 "runs". Most people do not feel anything during a "run"; no tingling or shocking sensation. Some people feel immediate symptom change, some may experience change within a few hours or days, some don't notice anything but the majority of the times they improve without being consciously aware that they're improving.

The number of sessions depends on the person. Oftentimes, kids respond / improve quicker than adults; and those with less trauma (including physical, emotional, spiritual/religious) also respond / improver quicker than those with more trauma. Improvements may be noticed after the first session though sometimes it takes several months; however, improvement are long-lasting, with the exception of progressive neurological disease.

LENS can be beneficial for relieving symptoms related to:

  • Stress, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD & other mental health diagnoses

  • Concussions, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), Stroke

  • ADD/ADHD, Difficulty Concentrating, Learning disorders (ie, dylexia, dysgraphia)

  • Addiction, Substance Use Disorder

  • Chemo-related / Infection-related "brain fog" symptoms
