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.

Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback focuses on treating an overactive "fight or flight" system, so that when you feel your anxiety go into overdrive, you have the tools to physiologically bring down your anxiety. You can actually control your heart rhythms! Athletes, musicians, olympians and others utilize these very same techniques to help them achieve peak performance.

— Cassandra Cannon, Clinical Psychologist in Carlsbad, CA

Biofeedback is sometimes marketed as a magic bullet but it’s just a tool and it’s only one approach. There is extensive research showing that using relaxation skills ( biofeedback as well as other strategies) helps us access our body’s built-in self-regulation tools so we can feel and do better. The bottom line: When we self-regulate better, we’re better at just about everything else.
