Biofeedback is generally considered safe, however, it may not work properly on people with certain skin conditions or heart rhythm problems.
A therapist would attach electrical sensors to different body parts during a biofeedback session. These sensors will monitor your skin temperature, brain waves, muscle tension, breathing, and heart rate. This information would be fed to you via visual cues on the monitor, flashlights, or sounds such as a beep. With the feedback, you’ll learn to change your thoughts, emotions, or behaviour to get a positive response through these feedback cues.
