Biofeedback

We provide biofeedback-assisted relaxation training to help people with issues like chronic pain and headache, anxiety, high blood pressure, Raynaud's disease, CRPS, high stress, and difficulty sleeping. It is a short-term, non-invasive, non-drug, evidence-based treatment. Biofeedback works by helping individuals to become more aware of and bring physiological processes under voluntary control in order to improve health or performance.

Specifically, biofeedback uses precise instruments (sensors and computers) to measure body processes such as heart rate, breath rate, muscle tension, or skin temperature. This information about the body is then "fed-back" to the individual, allowing them to see moment-by-moment changes as they practice relaxation strategies and mindfulness tools such as focused breathing.

There is a large body of research indicating that biofeedback is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including migraine and tension headache, high blood pressure, and anxiety.
