"Here then is a definitive statement of the art of Nihon Goshin Aikido coming directly from one of its most knowledgeable practitioners. I know that it will be an essential resource not only for students of NGA but also for martial artists of any style anywhere in the world."
"Living an integral life means “getting it together” and being “together” rather than being and feeling fragmented. It means thinking, feeling and acting always out of the certainty of your wholeness and never acting out of a sense of disconnection or lack."
Low Energy Neurofeedback System
If you or someone you love is suffering from the symptoms of:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Extreme Stress
- Headache (tension or Migraine)
- Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue
- Chemical Dependence
- Spinal Cord Injury
You owe it to yourself or to them to learn about LENS™
An amazing technology has developed since 1990 that has brought relief for many suffering with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), traumatic physical head or spinal cord injury symptoms, stroke, clinical depression, anxiety disorders, emotional trauma from childhood sexual or physical abuse, work, and war stress (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD), Autism, Asperger's syndrome, Fibromyalgia (FMS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), substance abuse, and bipolar disorder.
The brain appears to hold onto the reactive and imbalanced patterns it establishes during periods of stress. Using EEG monitoring equipment which also emits an extremely weak but specific electromagnetic field, the imbalanced brainwaves that the brain has used to maintain these various conditions are modified, thus restoring the brain's flexibility. By rebalancing these patterns, the resultant disorders are also eliminated.
Improving the quality of life with LENS™
Why and how LENS™ (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) reduces symptoms and restores functioning
Central Nervous System (CNS) symptoms and slow brainwave activity are related.
When people are injured, traumatized, or otherwise overly stressed, their brainwaves may get fixed or "stuck" in a pattern of predominantly low frequency brainwave activity. This is called "EEG slowing." Symptoms commonly associated with EEG slowing include: anxiety, depression, irritability, fatigue, pain, hyperactivity, distractibility, “spaciness”, mood swings, confusion, disorganization, problems with sleep, and difficulties with concentration, memory, attention, reading comprehension, and following conversations. EEG slowing may occur when the integrating function of the cerebral cortex is impaired. LENS™ helps restore this function and is a direct means of affecting, and often resolving, the symptoms listed above. LENS™ interrupts the brain's maladaptive processing system and restores it to its natural, flexible and optimal functioning pattern. LENS™ seems to reactivate the brain's natural ability to perform with clarity and efficiency. While not everyone can be helped, many people have untapped resources and can reach better functioning- even if they had been told they would not.
LENS™ reduces EEG slowingand optimizes functioning. With the help of sophisticated computer technology, the patient's own brainwaves are used to return information back to the brain. Feedback is provided by electromagnetic energy pulses so weak as to be virtually immeasurable. Yet the brain can detect - and benefit from - both. The feedback reduces EEG slowing and permits the cerebral cortex, the sophisticated outer layer of the brain, to work efficiently again. When EEG slowing is reduced, symptoms can decrease or even disappear. At the culmination of therapy, the brain adopts this new level of flexibility and, like a thermostat that has been reset. It then functions automatically at the new, more integrated level, no longer needing the help of LENS™.
When slow-wave activity is reduced, flexibility improves, and symptoms decrease or even disappear.
What is LENS™?
LENS™ is an advanced form of EEG Biofeedback. Because it is still very new, few know about it and fewer can conceive that it can achieve what it demonstrates. It is non-invasive and painless, and requires only that a patient sit comfortably in a chair. There is no need for focused attention or a conscious learning task. It will take years for scientific documentation adequately to demonstrate its effects. But clinical experience and several current research studies appear to justify our confidence in this system.
Who can benefit from LENS™?
People suffering from effects of brain injury (regardless of origin), extreme stress, anxiety attacks, depression, emotional trauma, attention deficit disorder, autism, explosive disorders, Alzheimer's Disease, Headaches and Fibromyalgia have benefited greatly. Post-stroke deficits have also improved with LENS™.
How long does it take?
A person's sensitivity to the feedback, and the longer the person has been symptomatic, determine treatment length. Effects of a single upset may be resolved in as few as five sessions. Complex problems may take 40 or more. A single session lasts about 30 minutes.
LENS has been studied clinically since 1990. The vast majority of people treated have experienced significant improvement in their CNS symptoms, and the benefits gained seem to sustain or increase, unless new trauma occurs.
LENS enhances other forms of therapy for mood, energy & cognitive rehabilitation. As LENS increases flexibility of the brain's functioning, learning of all kinds becomes easier. Even fairly early in treatment, many describe a greater sense of ease and clarity. They learn new cognitive and emotional skills more quickly and become more capable of self-management. For this reason, LENS can dramatically enhance the effectiveness of other physical and psychological therapies. When the brain is working well, all therapies are more productive and peak performance is possible.
