What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a type of therapy that uses sensors attached to your body to
measure key body functions. Biofeedback is intended to help you learn more about
how your body works. This information may help you to develop better control over
certain body functions and address health concerns.
Biofeedback is built on the concept of “mind over matter.” The idea is that, with
proper techniques, you can change your health by being mindful of how your body
responds to stressors and other stimuli.
Chronic stress can have dramatic effects on your body. This may include elevated
blood pressure, increased body temperature, and disruption of brain function. By
promoting a more effective mental and physical response to stress, biofeedback
aims to help you control body processes like your heart rate and blood pressure.
These body processes were once thought to be completely involuntary.
How does it work?
Electrical sensors that connect to a monitor will
be hooked up to your body. The sensors measure one
or more signs of stress. This can include heart rate,
muscle tension, or body temperature. The
measurements provide feedback about how your
body responds to different stimuli.
A biofeedback therapist can teach you how to lower
your heart rate through breathing exercises,
relaxation techniques, and mental exercises. You can
measure the results of these techniques and exercises
on the monitor. This encourages more positive
reactions and relaxation.
A typical biofeedback session lasts between 30 and
60 minutes. The number of sessions needed to
resolve an issue will vary depending on a number of
factors, including how quickly you learn to control
your physical responses.
