The Healing Power of Neurofeedback, by Stephen Larsen, Ph.D
“According to the Centers for Disease Control, each year 260,000 people are hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries. The Brain Injury Association reports 1.5 million injuries annually, many of which go undiagnosed but which can lead to various cognitive and emotional impairments. Traditionally the methods for resolving these impairments have been limited to drug therapy or surgery. His book explores an alternative, highly effective technique of restoring brain function: the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS).
Developed by Dr. Len Ochs in 1990 and is FDA approved. It has had extraordinary results using weak electromagnetic fields to stimulate brain-wave activity and restore brain flexibility and responsiveness. The treatment works across a broad spectrum of human activity – both on the basic functional level and in the more subtle areas of cognitive, affective, and spiritual processes that make us truly human.
Researcher Stephen Larsen also sees it as an important alternative to chemical approaches for such chronic behavioral disorders as anxiety, ADHD, bipolar depression, and childhood developmental disorders.”
