Biofeedback

What is biofeedback? 

Biofeedback is a training technique in which individuals are taught to improve their health by using information from their bodies.   It is scientifically based and validated by years of studies and clinical practice.

Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as heart rate, muscle tension, finger temperature, respiration, sweat gland activity.  These instruments then “feed back” real-time signals to the user.  This feedback becomes the basis for the individual to learn self regulation skills and the ability to change their body’s physiology.

Biofeedback is a very empowering type of treatment, as individuals initiate changes in their body to create healing.
