Biofeedback: An Excellent Starting Point
Biofeedback in itself is often used as a relaxation technique and is…
“A process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance.
Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately ‘feed back’ information to the user.
The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.”

Finally, this is just the beginning of an exciting new journey for you, the patient/client and your practitioner. And it is important to remember that Biofeedback not only gives you the power to use your own thoughts to control your body, but often it helps improve health related conditions and physical performance.
