Seattle's Premier Provider of LENS Neurofeedback
Novo Life Counseling is the premier provider of LENS Neurofeedback in Seattle, Washington. Having studied the LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) method and subsequent research for more than a decade, we work with clients suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety, Depression, Fatigue, Restlessness, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a specific and patented type of biofeedback for the brain. The LENS system monitors brainwave activity real time and the gives feedback to the brain, interrupting maladaptive brainwave patterns and allowing the brain to reset and regulate itself in a more healthy way. It is natural, and brings balance to the brain by helping the brain decrease or increase fast and slow brain waves that may interfere with performance. The brain is an incredibly sophisticated and elastic part of who we are and how we function. Neurofeedback treatment is a natural way to optimize your performance at any age and is a compliment to talk therapy. It is also a natural alternative to pharmacological treatments for those who desire holistic treatment.
What can Neurofeedback treat?
Cognition - Problems sequencing, memory, providing and maintaining attention, concentration, clarity and organization.
Mood - Anger, sadness, explosiveness.
Motor - Lack of grace, problems of eye-hand coordination, balance, increased muscle tone (from spasticity) and tremor.
Motivation - Problems initiating tasks, shifting from one activity to another, and/or completing tasks.
Anxiety - Problems of anxiety system activity (too much uncomfortably-contained energy), persistent "anxiety", restlessness, rumination, agitation, distractibility, difficulty breathing, palpitations, tremor exacerbation, and sleep interruption.
Reactivity - Hyperreactivity, hypersensitivity, multiple chemical sensitivities.
Pain - Brain-generated pain (mismapping the origins and qualities of signals), and vascular pain.
Addictions/Dependencies - Lack of clarity about emotions and self-comforting, defensiveness, argumentativeness and cynicism.
Fatigue - Fatigue; or fatigue as a phenomenon secondary to the effort of trying to overcome the pain and/or the above impediment to functioning more easily.
Performance Optimization - Increases in functioning in the above areas in absence of any diagnosis.
Will the results of treatment last?
The LENS treatment system treats dysregulation in the brain. As new healthy pathways are paved, the brain is able to reinforce and reuse the new neural pathways. These gains will last forever.
