WHAT WE DO and HOW WE CAN HELP
The Princeton Biofeedback Centre LLC specializes in providing neurofeedback and Open Focus training to treat stress-related disorders, attention disorders, physical and emotional pain, and anxiety and depression. Neurofeedback and Open Focus are methods that reduces stress and enhance well-being by using principles developed in the field of electroencephalographic (EEG) biofeedback, now called neurofeedback. Open Focus and neurofeedback combine to reduce symptoms that may not be recognizable as stress related, but are often underpinning physical and emotional pain, attention difficulties, emotional disorders, and physical symptoms of all kinds. It is also effectively used by athletes and performers to train for peak performance.

Without going into too much detail, I will divulge that I was in desperate need of a solution to cope with pain. My doctors were giving me all they had in terms of medication and treatment but it seemed like I was alone in the world when it came to the physical anguish I was experiencing. With a relatively skeptic eye, I read [Dr. Fe... Read more

When I first saw this new book by Dr Fehmi I thought its premise was too good to be true. How could a set of mental exercises simply dissolve the feeling of pain accumulated over several years, particularly in difficult to treat areas such as knees? Well, in spite of my scepticism, after doing the exercises I saw a remarkable reducti... Read more

Pain is gone! Recently, I was forced to stop taking my ibuprofen pills because of a stomach condition. I have severe arthritis, joint and muscle pains. I had relied on this medication for years (which is what caused the stomach problem!). Searching for another way to address my pain, I tried other medications, stretching, meditation ... Read more

I've been using Les Fehmi's Open Focus Attention brain exercises for awhile. They work. How? By doing simple exercises that focus on your body's relationship to space, you change the way you pay attention, and that changes your brain wave activity ... which changes your physiology and the hormones and chemicals that keep our bodies ...

Betty (Amazon review of "The Open-Focus Brain.")
Even months of really good therapy proved insufficient to budge the bulk of the symptoms I experience as a result of severe PTSD. In seven weeks of practicing Open Focus I have seen huge changes, it feels like a miracle. The changes include: * massive reduction in everyday pain level * ability to rapidly deal with flashbacks and ... Read more

5Helps tremendously. The Open Focus approach is exactly what I was looking for to bridge the gap between meditation and medicine. Neither were helping my long list of ailments, mainly migraines, and other approaches such as "mindfulness" just made things worse. . . I have not found a better method for healing than this. . . Open fo... Read more

Ritalin, Dexedrine and Clonidine, they all have side effects...Ritalin can slow down growth, it can lead to insomnia, it can cause loss of appetite....but it can also turn around a child's life.... I would rather see biofeedback tried first.
M. Skeptic (amazon review)
I have been doing Yoga Nidra for a year and TM style meditation two years before that. I find this technique simpler, and more applicable thru-out the day. Since you can use Open focus with your eyes open you can use the technique at your desk. Open Focus is what I do when I can't dedicate time for a Yoga Nidra session. The results ... Read more

A child's brain can be taught to regulate itself, much like a youngster can be taught to ride a bike. Through the training, the brain is provided with the information it needs to regulate itself, thereby causing the necessary adjustments which bring about changes in behavior. The most common feedback about EEG training from parents... Read more
Kurt Vega (amazon review)
Dr. Fehmi developed by far the most effective technique for dissolving pain I've ever encountered. Simple and very effective, it works with both emotional and physical pain. A serendipitous discovery based on his personal experience with kidney-stone pain led Dr. Fehmi to "begin a lifelong quest to understand the relationship between... Read more

Great support in my life. I have been doing the Open Focus practice for about three years. . .The practice which was initially intended for stress-relief has become the focal part of my learning and my life. Many good changes occurred during this time: dramatically improved relationships both in family and at work, courage to own my... Read more

I didn’t even finish listening to the podcasts about open focus when I found myself unable to sleep last night. I decided to focus on the open space around me and promptly fell asleep. It was an unusual experience. I will listen to the other podcast and try to implement the idea with regard to pain. Thanks for sending them to me.
Thank you for the masterful and inspiring Open Focus and Brain Synchrony training this past weekend. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to know you and your work and to start my own training in its use. My goal to enhance my mental health and the world around me is incredibly enriched by your insightful and successful mode... Read more

Two things I wanted to share: First, my wife had had a lot of eye tension which was causing strain. After working with her with Open Focus a few times over the past week, that tension has largely dissolved. In the meantime, she has started using Open Focus with her voice students (I think I mentioned she is a singer and voice teacher... Read more

The most important book you could ever read.
Brilliant practice. I layer this along with my yoga and meditation practice. Great way to learn to be self-aware and experience the world through your senses.
This book is easy to read and understand. I am seeing results from practicing the exercises laid out in the book. The accompanying cd is a real help. Easy to follow.
My quality of life today is a miracle. I came to Dr Fehmi having constant migraine and pain attacks that had robbed me of my fun meter for life. They were caused by my lack of managing my focus. I live by Dr Fehmi’s saying,” it’s not what you pay attention to, it’s how you pay attention to whatever it is. Today the Open Fo... Read more

I had been practicing Open Focus exercises for several years and felt it had been helpful in addressing the life challenges I have been working on for many years. Then I attended the workshop in LA 2/14. It was a significant turning point for me. Immersion in the exercises over those 3 days brought me to a new level of experiencing O... Read more

Open focus attention training has become a regular practice in my life. If I don’t do it I feel the difference. My nervous system is not in balance. Open focus has helped me overcome vertigo episodes. Now, the moment I recognize early warning signals I enter open focus and I feel much better. The training I had done in 2013 with... Read more

I’ve seen some remarkable results with EEG Biofeedback in a number of children I have referred. It has seemed particularly helpful with speech, memory and attention deficit problems.
Attending the Open Focus / Synchrony workshop was one of the highlights of my personal life and career. Training in pure Open Focus with Dr Fehmi showed me that through practice, I can really choose my own internal states, that I can create a state of mind that’s conducive to harmony and effortless insight. Time and commitment is a... Read more

For the first time since I’ve had Eric (age 6), I’m not worried about him. Impulsitivity is under control. I always knew he was smart. Now he’s able to learn by leaps and bounds. He’s much happier. He listens better. The changes with the EEG training were noticeable right away.
You have given us back the child we always wanted
Our adopted son, who was prenatally exposed to alcohol, had attention deficits. He was oppositional and impulsive. He had phobias and anxiety. You throw all that together on one little five year old and that’s an awful lot to deal with. This technique has been the light at the end of a very long tunnel for us. Nothing else has work...

I can say without hesitation, that Open Focus is one of the most consistently efficacious healing protocols I have ever encountered for removing and dissolving stress, anxiety and chronic pain. Open Focus also has the capacity to dissolve grief and traumatic memories. The best part is that you can use Open Focus as either a hyper aro... Read more

A very special remembrance on your birthday,Les. Someday they might make April 23rd a national holiday in honor of your groundbreaking work. It amazes me to see articles appearing in the supposed avant-garde technical press that we discussed years ago. I’m especially thankful to you for my many neurofeedback sessions . . .and of...

In my opinion, Open Focus increases creativity. I have noticed it in myself. I have clients who are also therapists. They say they are more intuitive and able to develop better insight into their clients issues. It also helps calm people and they report better sleep.
Robert “Bob” Wright, Jr., Ph.D., COFT
Well, now that I have almost 10 years experience using Open Focus and working with clients, I can say without any doubts that I continue to be amazed by the efficacy of Open Focus; how it literally and figuratively “peels away” levels of stress, anxiety and pain just like an onion.
