Overview

Biofeedback is a body-mind technique in which through auditory and visual feedback, people are taught to become aware of the physical signs of anxiety and stress such as increased body temperature, heart rate, and muscle tension. The biofeedback therapist then teaches the person to relax their minds and body in order to cope with the symptoms of stress. Some examples of functions that a person can learn to control using this training technique include pain perception, blood pressure, blood flow, muscle tension, and heart rate. Giving continuous feedback about the body’s physiological state, in conjunction with making changes in the person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors promote desired changes. Thus over time, the person is able to maintain these changes without the use of the biofeedback instrument.
A biofeedback session lasts usually for 30 to 60 minutes, and may typically be provided for 4 to 6 sessions, or even 8 to 10 sessions. The number of sessions and duration of each session depends on various factors such as the condition the person is focusing on, goals for treatment, and how well the person is responding to the training.
