What IS Biofeedback?

The basis for much of Biofeedback training is the interaction between the mind and body. Biofeedback is an approach that provides "feedback" to imbalances in the mind and body that usually go unnoticed. Many people are unaware of the instantaneous emotional and physical changes that can cause a variety of symptoms, including headaches. For example, there are fluctuations in muscle activity, brain wave patterns, heart rate, blood flow, hormone levels, and stomach acid. Many of these changes are related to psychological factors such as anger, agitation, anxiety, restlessness, and depression. Biofeedback can be used independently or integrated with other treatments to improve physiological, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral regulation.
