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.
