What is Biofeedback therapy?

Biofeedback therapy is a technique used to control your body's functions, such as stress levels or heart rate. Using feedback from the biofeedback machine, you can use your thoughts and will to gain power over subtle changes in your body-heart rate, relaxing certain muscles, breathing, etc. Biofeedback is based on the idea, confirmed by scientific studies, that people have the innate potential to influence with their minds many of the automatic, involuntary functions of their bodies.

How does Biofeedback work?

The biofeedback machine is hooked onto the fingertips and monitors the participant's blood pressure, heart rate and skin temperature. This program helps the individual relax their body and train themselves to control their heart rate, muscle tension, blood pressure and responses to stress.
