BioFeedback is useful in treating the existence of Anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder, Mental & Physical Stress, Panic Attacks, Past Trauma and Abuse, as well as Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder, Chronic Pain, Fears and Phobias.
Through monitoring physiological responses such as heart rate, skin temperature, brain waves, and muscle tension, biofeedback turns the physiological signals into meaningful information. This feedback information is then explained to the person being monitored in order to increase their awareness of their mental and physical distress.
The power of biofeedback is in the training that is guided by the results of your physiological responses. Feedback leads to awareness, and awareness leads to learning and control.
The goal is to recognize minor mental and physical symptoms early on in order to control and reduce them before they become major symptoms.
