What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a well proven method to visualize and train physiological activity (body responses and sensations) that results from the mind-body interface. Biofeedback therapy is a non-drug treatment in which people learn to control bodily processes that are normally involuntary, such as muscle tension, blood pressure, or heart rate. By using these signals as real-time feedback, people can learn to become aware of responses that are typically unconscious processes. Biofeedback can help to self-regulate physiological processes in order to improve overall health.

 

The ultimate goal of biofeedback is to gain more control over physiological processes and influencing behavior that leads to misbalances in these processes. Biofeedback is about reaching optimal health across physical, mental and emotional states. It focuses on treating the cause of health problems, rather than treating symptoms. Research shows that biofeedback, alone and in combination with other behavioral therapies, is effective for treating a variety of medical and psychological disorders.

 

Biofeedback has been shown to be effective in treating the following conditions:

 

  • ADHD
