Jon Stuart Haupers - LENS Mini-Blog!

    Here is a great little article further demonstrating the far reaching effects of neurofeedback. In this case, optimizing performance in a musician who had been suffering with migraine headaches--which was the reason she tried EEG Brainwave Therapy. If the goal of neurofeedback is to optimize cortical connections and initiate a change from an aberrant brainwave pattern to a normal one, why wouldn't it be successful on an otherwise healthy individual who lost their concentration while performing because of stress? 
    I have treated many musicians and they all tell me the same thing. It improves focus, concentration of the task at hand, improved dexterity, more emotional content, and less stress. This underscores the idea that it is anxiety brought on by stress that is the underlying precondition contributing to poor brainwaves. We have all seen a healthy highly trained professional musician, athlete or businessman self destruct because of too much stress. The pressure of performing changes the neural connections by setting into motion inhibitory defensive mechanisms at the electro-chemical level of neuronal development.
    Musicians and athletes alike are both known for performing hours upon hours of conditioning, training their bodies to react by repetitive drills to produce a desired affect. In a similar way, the effects of stress condition the mind into a maladaptive state in which over time gets reinforced and ultimately stuck.... destined to failure, unless the pattern can be disrupted.
    The signal LENS (low energy neurofeedback system) uses to make such changes doesn't care what the classification of your ailment is. It simply allows your body to utilize it to reset itself to a more optimal state. 
    This is why it works so well for so many people.

Are you or are you not at risk? 25% of heart attacks are silent. Do you have a family history or risk factors but no obvious symptoms? This 10 minute test measures the thickness of the carotid artery, as well as detects both soft and calcific plaque with no radiation. Studies have shown that abnormalities detected from this test correlate quite well with what is happening in your heart. Early detection is REVERSIBLE! This test--IMT--is done in the office.
