The LENS typically produces noticeable shifts within 3 to 5 sessions. Session lengths typically vary between 40 and 60 minutes. With the LENS approach clients do not need to engage in any form of training during sessions. The initial session is somewhat longer so that you and the practitioner can gain insight into how sensitive/discerning, reactive, and resilient your central nervous system is. This is important to customizing each session for your optimal well being.
Basically, the neurofeedback received by the client during a session mirrors or reflects the body and brain waves recorded by the sensors. This in effect, allows the central nervous system to re-organize into more optimal functioning. For those individuals who are sensitive with a high level of discernment, the number of sites in a session are limited to allow ample time for your central nervous system to re-organize based on the feedback. This is to prevent too drastic of a shift and provides the safety to adjust to your new baseline.
In general LENS addresses the functional blocking of the central nervous system that is often the root of issues such as:
