What is Biofeedback?
 
Biofeedback is a technique by which a person is trained to improve health using signals from his or her own body.  Sensitive equipment detects unconscious body function in order for a person to learn to alter their blood pressure, muscle tension, heart rate, brain activity,
or other involuntary body functions.
 
Common forms of biofeedback:
 
1.  Temperature biofeedback
 
2.  Muscular (EMG) biofeedback
 
3.  EEG (brainwave) biofeedback
 
Much like a basketball player learning to shoot hoops, the person being trained must practice.  The biofeedback equipment monitors performance and rewards improvement with points and the therapist acts as a coach setting goals and helping the person improve their health.
 
 
Why use biofeedback?
 
Biofeedback is safe, non-invasive, drug free, and painless.  As part of a comprehensive program it tends to be long lasting.  Research has shown that biofeedback can reduce longterm healthcare costs, frequency of hospitalization, and use of medication for many disorders.  Most stress related conditions significantly improve with biofeedback programs.
 
 
What is Neurofeedback?
 
Biofeedback to learn regulation of certain brainwave signals for stress reduction, stroke or head injury rehabilitation, for concentration problems, addictions and other problems.  Changes in brain chemistry or energy uptake cause changes in brain waves. Certain mental activities produce predictable brainwaves in certain areas of the brain.  Cognitive rehabilitation, learning to control or regulate these brainwaves, can reduce symptoms and improve functioning and behavior.
