Call for Information
This advanced treatment uses a highly calibrated micro electromagnetic field to rebuild and reset brain functions that results in more effective functioning. LENS Neurofeedback is not a specific treatment for any single condition but considered a primary therapy to improve brain and the central nervous system processes. EchoNeuro treatment protocols are individualized to promote healthy development of brain cells and neural pathways.
EchoNeuro protocols address a wide variety of chronic behavioral and physiological conditions. Clients report feeling relaxed and calm with heightened mental clarity and emotional resilience in the first session. Echo Neurotherapy has offices in San Francisco and Mill Valley.
What to Expect
LENS is very safe and medication-free. During the session a therapist attaches sensors to the client’s head in order to record their brainwaves (EEG waves). For only a few seconds, LENS mirrors back the brain’s faint electromagnetic impulses. This brain-mirroring allows dysfunctional patterns in the brain to reorganize and optimize functions. The information signal is far weaker than the electromagnetic field around a wrist watch, yet it typically triggers the brain to make profound, lasting changes.
In the first session, 86%, notice improvements and nearly every client experience improvement by the third session. Depending on the symptoms and disorder, a typical course of treatment is between 15 and 25 sessions. Positive changes endure months and years after the final session.
Benefits of LENS
Clients usually report feeling clear, calm, and fully present immediately after neurofeedback. The progression of states experienced by clients follows a predictable pattern that parallels traditional meditation benefits. These benefits include letting go of sticky emotional states like malice and wanting, balancing energy between emotional and behavioral extremes, and knowing what can and can’t be done. When this initial centering has cleared the big distractions away from being fully present, clients progress through increased awareness, clarity, energy, joy, calm, focus, and contentment.
LENS is a safe and effective for children, adolescents, and adults. LENS has been shown to be particularly effective with children and has successfully treated ADHD, behavioral problems, learning disabilities and a variety of trauma
Neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. It is why LENS Neurofeedback is so remarkably effective for certain behavioral and physical health conditions. Neuroplasticity is why the brain rewires itself to function in some way that differs from how it previously functioned. These changes range from individual neuron pathways making new connections, to systematic adjustments like cortical remapping. Examples of neuroplasticity include circuit and network changes that result from learning a new ability, environmental influences, practice, and psychological stress. conditions.
LENS Neurofeedback has been extensively researched and has been demonstrated remarkable efficacy for a variety of different conditions. Learn more about the science of LEN Neurofeedback on our Research Section
LENS Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment during which people often report feeling comfortable and calm. In over a million sessions, there have been no significant side effects. Because the brain responds to LENS by reorganizing itself, there may be a new awareness of existing symptoms, such as feeling fatigued, wired, or light-headed. These short-term feelings tend to correct themselves quickly.

It is not necessary to be off medications, drugs, or alcohol before LENS treatment. Please communicate with your prescribing physician about your changing needs for medication. Many people report decreasing their use of medication, and feeling less interested in recreational drugs and alcohol after treatment with LENS.
