What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback enables you to control your physiology to improve health and performance.

We live in a stress-filled society and common everyday occurrences that did not bother us a few decades ago now completely stress us out (driving, shopping, working).

We can help decrease the physical influence of stressors on your body by teaching you breathing exercises, muscle relaxation, and sometimes through the help of biofeedback, a gentle therapy that helps bring awareness to how mental/emotional stressors in your everyday life can influence the physiological processes within your body.

The purpose of biofeedback is to help you develop skills to help you relax during situations that would otherwise have stressed you out. At the same time it is so much more than the use of a machine to train you to relax. It is a powerful way of assisting you to learn more about yourself so you can be your own agent of healing.

How Does Biofeedback Work?

Biofeedback hardware allows us to monitor your breathing, heart rate, temperature, sweating and muscle tension in the office and gives you the ability to see your body's response when you are either relaxed or in a stressful situation.

Rapid and accurate 'feedback' of this information, combined with changes in your thinking, emotions, and behavior, supports positive measureable changes in your physiology. With repetition you gain confidence, and utimately control of your physiology - without the instruments.
