Just as a scale informs you if you’ve gained weight and a thermometer lets you know if you’re running a fever, biofeedback allows people to gain insight into their internal stats. Through the use of a biofeedback machine, patients can monitor readings for blood pressure, heart rate, and even muscle tension. Studies show that when people are empowered with this type of information, they are able to improve their symptoms through efforts like relaxation techniques and modified behavior.*
Biofeedback has helped people battle anxiety, asthma, nausea, stress and epilepsy because it helps people control their body’s natural fight or flight instinct. If you think you could benefit from biofeedback therapy, discuss options with your doctor.
