Mind Mending with LENS (Low Energy Neuro Feedback System) corrects
neurological pathways compromised by physical and emotional damage.
LENS was developed over 15 years ago by Len Ochs, PhD. This gentle, non-invasive neuro and bio feedback technique is helping people all over the world regain brain function and reclaim their lives! Think of this as a way to painlessly "re-boot" and "re-energize" your brain, allowing greater ease in learning, work, and play. Clearer thinking, better sleep, emotions that are easier to manage, better memory, and so much more can be yours!
LENS encourages the brain to regain flexibility which in turn allows improved quality of life. When the brain in injured, it ‘locks’ itself down in an attempt to protect itself, causing forgetfulness, difficulty completing tasks, reactive emotions, and so much more. LENS increases the blood supply, re-boots the parts that aren't as active as we need them to be, thus allowing us to reclaim and create the life we would like for ourselves.
STRESS RELIEF is a treatment done with clips on the ear lobes and a sensor that is moved to each fingernail. Your stress levels are reviewed at the start and at the end of the treatment, the vast majority of clients experience a dramatic drop in anxiety, agitation and stress levels. What a relief!
BODY LENS works to "re-boot" or "re-set" nerves that forget to turn off after an injury of some kind. This painless treatment is 105 seconds to potentially completely changing your life... One lady had chronic neck and shoulder pain for the last 40 years... in one treatment it went from 7-8/10 pain to 1/10 pain... for some, it is just that quick. For others, it takes more time. Her foot was swollen and bruised, 8/10 pain, from dropping a piece of furniture on it... after BODY LENS, it was 4/10... in 105 seconds.
LENS and MIGRAINES: LENS works with the blood supply in the brain allowing the irritable brain to be smoothed and calmed. Why continue to live in pain when it can be possible to reduce or eliminate this debilitating condition?
LENS and addictions... the statistics show that with the addition of LENS to inpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs, the success rate increase to 80% vs. 20-40% in programs without LENS. It is thought that LENS helps to rebalance the neurotransmitters in the brain that are responsible for moods and transmission of the nerve signals themselves.
LENS works very well for any kind of brain injury, no matter the cause: physical, emotional, or chemical. LENS doesn’t treat a diagnosis, it treats the brain, so the source of the injury is less important than the symptoms you desire to overcome, . Genetic diseases or progressive diseases move more slowly toward improvement, but improvements are seen with Parkinson’s, Autism, Multiple Sclerosis and so on. It does not ‘cure’ these diseases but it does help with the symptoms. Statistics say between 3-5 years of improved quality of life are possible. Autism sees it's greatest improvements in social behaviors: less yelling, repetitive behaviors, and speech: it varies with each child.
Where lens is least effective is when there is an underlying inflammatory process such as Lyme disease, hepatitis, yeast overgrowth, or heavy metal toxicity. The body is inundated with surviving, and has nothing left to give to improve the brain. Often, as the brain heals, other health issues will improve along the way, as the brain IS the “captain of the ship.” Once these diseases are in "remission" then work can commence in improving brain function.
LENS works very well for any kind of brain injury, no matter the cause: physical, emotional, or chemical. Thus, the symptoms of Traumatic Brain injuries, seizures, depression, anxiety, strokes, ADD/ ADHD, are improved as the brain is gently encouraged to re-energize. This allows us to choose to live better... how can I assist you today?
Treatment starts with a comprehensive interview and filling out a questionnaire here is the link: http://ochslabs.com/cdb/report/lw3-questionnaire.php. There are 3 parts which help me determine your sensitivity, reactivity, and durability. It also distills out your top 10 challenges and allows us to track them from week to week. Your email must be the same as the one used for your treatment email so the answers can be linked to you treatment page.
Next, I do what is called a "MAP" of your brain. I place the sensors on 21 different sites on the head, thus evaluating where your brain is starting out from. This, plus the interview, gives us a treatment plan to start your journey to living the kind of life you would like to lead. The average length of treatment is 10 sessions or less, but this is highly dependent upon your individual history, genetics, and the degree of injury/injuries we are dealing with. I believe we are partners in this journey: your awareness of changes and involvement in the treatment plan are highly beneficial. This initial MAP is an evaluation, the next session is an actual treatment. Each session starts with how you have done the past week, what improvements you have seen and what has stayed the same. There are often really good weeks, some weeks can be a struggle as memories are released or the brain is changing creating new ways of seeing things. The goal to create change at a pace you can handle.
The MAP session is often and hour to and hour and a half. The treatment sessions can be as short as 30 minutes, sometimes an hour, depending upon the review of how the week went. The vast majority of the time I do not do more that one session a week. Your brain MUST have time to assimilate the information and make the changes necessary. It is most beneficial if you answer the top 10 questions 3-4 days post treatment. I look forward to sharing your journey to the kind of life you would like to live! Many Blessings to you.

The Healing Power of Neurofeedback: The Revolutionary LENS Technique for Restoring Optimal Brain Function, by Dr Stephen Larsen. This book includes case histories about the LENS Technique and some of its history. Ultimately, it is quite readable and easily understood by the non-scientific portion of the community that seeks greater understanding of the treatment.
