Riding the Brainwave: neurofeedback treatments for stress reduction

LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System)
Using sensors to read the amplitude of your brainwaves, this system pulses a very weak electromagnetic signal to gently disrupt your non-beneficial brainwave patterns and allows the natural flexibility of your brain to emerge. The treatment is tailored to each individual.

”The LENS is a brainwave biofeedback system. It is an FDA certified system that provides noninvasive feedback. There are no shocks or needles involved. …The LENS is usually used by psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, massage therapists, and those involved with enhancing optimal performance. It has been used to treat over 100,000 people.” (www.ochslabs.com)

  • Photonic Stimulator Classified by the FDA as minimally invasive devices, the photonic stimulator is an infrared light stimulation device that helps the body re-calibrate reactions to stimulation. It generates a 1200 milliwatt light that is beneficial for tissue healing, inflammation and relieving the stress response. It has been used by NASA to facilitate wound healing for astronauts on mission.
  • Neurofield An alternating DC current stimulation device sends gentle pulses into the biofield of your brain and body for stress reduction and relaxation. The different protocols in this system feed the body and brain, and allow its natural energy to flow.
    “The NeuroField X1000 is an energy replenishment and stress reduction device designed by Dr. Nicholas Dogris. When tissue is damaged the molecular configuration of the tissue becomes deficient in electrons which make it difficult for the body to engage its own natural healing ability. The X1000 was designed to re-charge those damaged molecular systems, which in turn, allows the body to engage its own restorative systems so as to return to a balanced, homeostatic state. The natural healing wisdom of the human body is complex, adaptive, fluid and intelligent. When a person becomes imbalanced they become susceptible to many different types of illness. NeuroField was designed to strengthen the body and promote healthy, balanced states.”
