Q: What is Biofeedback?

A: A gentle, non-intrusive method using electronic machines to monitor and "feed-back" information to the person's mind. This self-regulating procedure provides immediate information about your body/mind system, allowing your brain and body to readjust and create a new balance.


Q: What is Neurotherapy?

A: Neurotherapy is a biofeedback-like procedure directed to the healing or balancing of the brain and central nervous system.


Q: What is Central Nervous System (CNS) Dysregulation?

A: CNS dysregulation is a type of condition that may underlie the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty in concentration
  • Mood swings that seem hard to control
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Low mental and emotional energy
  • Memory problems
  • Difficulty with organisation
  • Problems beginning and ending projects
  • Major depression
  • Anxiety or panic attacks

If a person has three or more of athe above symptoms, there is a likelihood that CNS dysregulation is present, and that one would benefit from LENS Neurotherapy.


Q: How Long Does Treatment Take?

A: It depends on the nature of the dysregulation. For problems of recent origin, in a fairly healthy nervous system, treatment may be short - 10 to 20 sessions. For problems of longer duration, a longer course of treatment, 20 to 40 sessions. For deeply entrenched problems that are similar to ones your parents or even grandparents had: still longer, commensurate with the amount of time the condition has existed. Serious disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, and Paralysis, may require many treatments, but over time, there is usually a steady gradient of improvement, rather that decline.


Q: Are There Any Dangers?
A: LENS and neurotherapy have never been known to cause any new problems. However, there may be a temporary intensification of symptoms that have plagued the person in the past - as part of the process of the condition being resolved. The best preventative is to let your clinician know at each visit how you have fared in the 24 hours following each treatment. An optimal level of stimulus intensity and duration of treatment can then be found that operates within your own level of comfort.
