What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback involves the measurement of biological functions that are normally considered
out of our conscious control, such as muscle tension, skin temperature, heart rate, sweat
gland activity, and brain wave activity. The results are immediately available to an individual
in the form of visual and auditory signals. These bodily functions are described as involuntary
in that they just happen. Research has proved that many individuals are able to alter their
involuntary responses and improve functioning. This training has been found to be helpful in
improving stress, chronic pain, heart function, psychological wellbeing, etc. With advances in
electronics and microcomputers, biofeedback has become a very sophisticated service that is more
available in many health care disciplines, where it is considered complimentary to a patient’s
overall treatment plan.
