A long-standing interest in biofeedback led Brian in 2016 to attain advanced certification in Low Energy Neurofeedback (LENS) as an adjunct to his Manual Therapy practice. Combining LENS with Manual Therapy has been extremely effective at quickly producing results for clients, encompassing physical, emotional and cognitive issues.
