13 Problems You Can
Conquer with Biofeedback

Biofeedback may allow you to reduce or eliminate:
  • tension headaches
  • migraines
  • TMJ
  • stress
  • ADD or ADHD
  • seizures
  • insomnia
  • cold hands including Raynaud's syndrome
  • high blood pressure
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • panic attacks
  • generalized anxiety
without resorting to medications and their disagreeable and sometimes harmful side effects. Biofeedback is non-invasive and teaches you to mobilize your own resources naturally.

How Does Biofeedback Work?

Biofeedback works very much like the mirror you use every day to straighten your hair, shave, or clean your face. The mirror is the biofeedback instrument. It doesn't alter you or harm you in any way. It merely reflects light from your body back to your eyes.

If you like the way your hair looks, you do nothing. If you don't, you may use a comb or brush to primp it. The mirror does not force you to do anything. Once you rearrange your hair to your satisfaction, you may stop changing it. To alter a prominent tagline, "Your mirror reports; you decide."

How Does Biofeedback Work
in a Clinical Situation?

Thermal biofeedback uses a temperature sensor and a computer to measure the warmth of your hand. Ordinarily, you are not very aware of your hand's temperature, but it is constantly warming and cooling. The computer "reflects" back to you a picture and/or sound whenever your hand warms or cools.

Thermal Biofeedback signals you when subtle biological changes occur in the bloodflow of your hand. By learning to identify the underlying sensations, you can warm your hands at will. Warmer hands:
  • calm you down
  • inhibit migraines
  • reduce stress
  • inhibit anxiety
  • reduce insomnia
  • promote general health

What Other Types of Biofeedback
are Available?

There are numerous types of biofeedback besides the temperature or thermal biofeedback described above.

EMG (ElectroMyoGraphic) Biofeedback produces an electrical picture of a muscle. Placing sensors on one or more muscles enables you to reduce tension in your head, face, shoulders, back, arms, or legs. Relaxed muscles:
  • reduce tension headaches
  • resolve muscle pain
  • aid TMJ (TemporoMandibularJoint) discomfort
  • promote general relaxation
  • improve posture
  • restore physical balance

A lesser known but important type of biofeedback measures the sweat activity in your skin.

SCR (Skin Conductance Response) Biofeedback measures the ebb and flow of moisture in the palms of your hands. High, variable levels of moisture may indicate excessive emotionality. Mild, slow changes in conductance while breathing normally:
  • stabilize emotionality
  • release constricted or bottled up emotions
  • reduce anxiety

Breath regulation can be a very important self-control skill to reduce anxiety, stress, and arousal.

Respiratory Biofeedback measures your rate of breathing and the depth or shallowness of each breath. Slower, deeper levels of breathing tend to produce an optimal balance between levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your blood stream affecting the acidity (ph level) of your blood. Proper breathing tends to:
  • inhibit anxiety
  • reduce ruminations
  • produce a feeling of calmness

An increasingly popular form of biofeedback targets the central nervous system directly.

EEG (ElectroEncephaloGraph) Biofeedback is also known as neurofeedback or brain wave training. Training may:
  • reduce ADD/ADHD symptoms
  • resolve anxiety
  • dissolve depression
  • inhibit seizures
  • improve sleep
  • ameliorate brain injury or stroke
  • lift brain fog

More Information on Neurofeedback

Biofeedback types other than neurofeedback are often referred to as peripheral biofeedback. This is because the biofeedback instrumentation measures activity at the level of the peripheral nervous system. Neurofeedback measures cerebral (brain) activity, i.e., it measures changes at the level of the central nervous system.
