What is LENS? 

LENS stands for "Low Energy Neurofeedback System" and was developed by Len Ochs, Ph.D. in the early 1990's as a drug-free and highly effective method to enhance brain functioning and flexibility.  In the over 20 years since its introduction it has helped hundreds of thousands of individuals decrease anxiety, increase and improve attention and concentration, reduce depression, increase overall energy, and enhance creativity and the ability to be present.

“LENS is like a reset button that unlocks the brain for optimum functioning. Neuroscientists believe that the brain’s defenses against stressors and trauma create neural gridlock. The Low Energy Neurofeedback System works around these blockages addressing the brain in its own electromagnetic language. LENS allows the brain to “reboot,” restoring optimal functioning.”
