Biofeedback Therapy is a mind-body technique used to learn how to control your body’s response to stress and is useful in treating many disorders like tension headaches, migraines, high blood pressure and anxiety.
The brain has a remarkable capacity to reorganize pathways and create new connections. Biofeedback Therapy teaches patients how they can gain control over biological functions that normally occur automatically beneath the level of awareness such as blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and brainwave frequency.
At Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation we use complex biofeedback machines and computer software to detect internal bodily functions with great sensitivity and precision that allow involuntary physical functions to be translated in ways that can be understood. In essence biofeedback is a psychophysiological mirror by which a patient can monitor and learn from physiological signals produced by their bodies and can see in real time how their thoughts, emotions and body are interconnected.
With biofeedback therapy you will gain awareness and learn skills needed to influence your respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, temperature and muscle activity! Benefits of biofeedback therapy:
- Decrease muscle tension
- Increase blood flow, circulation
- Improve mood
- Increase energy level
- Improve quality of sleep
- Manage chronic pain
- Muscle re-education
