One of our specialized interventions is the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) Direct Neurofeedback. This cutting-edge therapy provides a unique approach to helping individuals reset their brains and improve overall functioning.
What is LENS Direct Neurofeedback?
LENS Direct Neurofeedback is a gentle and non-invasive form of neurotherapy that allows the brain to reset itself by dis-entraining from unhealthy patterns and promoting self-regulation. Using advanced technology, it targets poor communication between brainwave patterns, helping to restore optimal neural pathways and improve symptom.
During a LENS session, sensors are placed on the scalp to measure electrical activity in the brain. This data is then processed by the LENS software, which provides real-time feedback to the brain in the form of very low-energy electromagnetic signals. These signals gently guide the brain back to a more balanced and regulated state.
What does a session look like?
A typical LENS Direct Neurofeedback session at Providence Therapy's Brain Bar is a comfortable and relaxing experience. After a thorough assessment, our skilled and compassionate therapist will guide you through the following steps:
You will be comfortably seated in a quiet and peaceful environment. The therapist will explain the process and answer any questions you may have, ensuring you feel at ease.
2. Sensor Placement:
Small sensors will be placed on your scalp to measure brainwave activity. These sensors are painless and do not cause any discomfort.
3. Neurofeedback Session:
The LENS software will process the brainwave data collected from the sensors and provide gentle electromagnetic signals back to your brain. You may not feel any direct sensations during the session, as the signals are extremely low-energy.
4. Monitoring and Adjustments:
The therapist will closely monitor your response to the neurofeedback and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the session is tailored to your specific needs.
5. Post-Session Reflection:
After the session, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your experience with the therapist. They will discuss any observations or insights and provide guidance for integrating the session's benefits into your daily life.
