Meet Our Team Of Anxiety's Psychiatrists

Overview

Body functions like skin temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, etc. are controlled involuntarily by our nervous system. However, in biofeedback training, electric sensors are attached to certain parts of the body in order to monitor and measure these physiological functions. By means of relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and other such techniques, an individual can learn to change these physiological states, of which feedback is consistently provided by the biofeedback device. In this way, an individual with anxiety disorders can learn how the way they are thinking is affecting their body, and moreover learn techniques to change their thinking and relax themselves which then would result in the desired physiological changes, thereby reducing anxiety.

There are several relaxation techniques used during biofeedback training sessions such as mindfulness meditation – which involves becoming aware of one’s thoughts and letting negative emotions go, deep breathing, guided imagery – which involves focusing on a specific, usually soothing, image which promotes relaxation, and progressive muscle relaxation – which involves tightening and relaxing different muscle groups alternatively.
