At ‘Individual & Family Wholeness’, it is our mission to guide you to become emotionally whole and to help you deliberately build your life on that wholeness. Psychotherapist, Carol Ann Worthing, PhD provides a safe and caring approach to your psychotherapy and evaluations. Psychotherapy involves the use of a wide variety of theories and techniques to deal with your life issues.
One of those techniques is the ‘LENS’ – Low Energy Neurofeedback System. It is a revolutionary technique used for Restoring Optimal Brain Function. LENS has been around since 1988 and gently corrects the neurological pathways in the brain. The LENS is a biofeedback system certified by the United States FDA as a 501K exempt biofeedback device approved for relaxation and self-regulation.
How does LENS work? THE LENS is a neurofeedback system that uses feedback directly to the skin of the scalp and requires no visual or conscious effort or concentration. The feedback directly to the scalp insures that it is the client’s self-regulation rather than that of the therapist that regulates the feedback. The feedback travels down the same wires carrying the brain waves to the amplifier and computer. Although there is no measurable feedback signal, the feedback produces a measurable change in the brainwaves without conscious effort from the individual receiving the feedback, which also makes it ideal for children as well as adults. The LENS software allows the EEG signals that are recorded at the scalp to control the feedback. LENS treatments are painless, non-invasive, relaxing and require no concentration or effort.
