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.

I am Board Certified in Neurofeedback and have been practicing it since 2010. I have the capacity to do various types of neurofeedback training, but my primary intervention is Infraslow Fluctation (ISF) Neurofeedback. This type of neurofeedback influences the slowest waves produced by the brain. These brainwaves are instrumental in regulating a multitude of physiological functions, including sleep, emotional regulation and attention networks. This type of training can promote global, lasting changes to the brain.

Biofeedback training is a scientific approach to addressing psycho-somatic issues that involve providing clients real-time feedback on their body’s responses to stress and other psychological factors. It involves connecting a client with sensors that measure their bio-rhythms. This information is fed back via visuals and sounds in real-time, in order to develop better mind-body awareness, self-regulation, and coping strategies.

— Phyllis Wright-West, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Raleigh, NC

Our body is constantly sending signal to itself. These signals are all part of a rhythm that develops which coordinates our heart, breath, mind, and other things like hormones. Like most things the longer something goes on the more of a pattern it develops. The problematic issue is when we are chronically stressed, anxious, angry or depressed we set a pattern for these rhythms that is out of synch. Our system is not in these chronic states because it feels normal. Biofeedback helps to identify this baseline of normal, and then through simple interventions someone can see how easy it is to get your system back in synch--regular practice starts to reset the body to its more natural state and helps us to have clearer thoughts and more emotional control

We use a form of biofeedback called neurofeedback to treat ADHD, anxiety, and trauma.

— Megan Lundgren, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Monrovia, CA

HeartMath is a form of biofeedback. We monitor your heart rate and simultaneously teach you strategies to make your heart rate more consistent. When folks suffer from anxiety, stress, or depression, the heart rate changes. Our autonomic nervous system can work in hyperdrive and we have to begin to teach our body to regulate itself. When our heart rate increases, it tells our brain we are in "fight or flight" mode. I've personally found this modality to be very effective.

— Yvonne DelZenero, Psychologist in Lakewood, CO

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.
