What is Biofeedback Therapy?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Biofeedback Therapy

Counselors use Biofeedback Therapy for physical and mental health concerns. During a Biofeedback Therapy session, a therapist or other specialist places sensors on your skin in various places. These sensors measure physiological responses to stimulus, stress, and other environmental factors. Your therapist observes the changes through the sensors and helps you interpret the results.

Looking at things like your breath, heart rate, muscle tension and activity, brain activity, and temperature can give your therapist clues as to how specific stimuli affect your mind and body. They can then teach you to control various bodily functions and respond more calmly to triggers.

While specialists use Biofeedback Therapy to treat physical ailments, this approach for mental health concerns is growing in popularity. If you have anxiety or depression, Biofeedback Therapy may be an excellent therapeutic opportunity for you.
