Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a technique used to gain awareness of involuntary physiological functions (such as your heart rate, blood pressure or skin temperature), with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will. The idea behind biofeedback is that if you use the power of your mind and to become aware of what's going on inside your body, you can gain more control over your health. Biofeedback is considered a mind-body technique. Biofeedback therapy will focus on teaching clients how to better control the body’s involuntary responses to facilitate improved health.

Biofeedback therapy refers to clinical applications of biofeedback training. I use the term biofeedback to refer to both biofeedback training and therapy. Biofeedback uses specialized instruments to measure and display a variety of physiological responses including skin temperature, skin conductance, muscle tension, and brainwaves. Conscious control over these physiological responses gradually emerges with training.
