Biofeedback can have a powerful, positive effect on your emotional and physical well-being. For Biofeedback training, I use sensitive electronic and computer equipment to monitor various physiologic functions such as muscle tension, skin temperature, galvanic skin response, heart rate and respiration. The information or “feedback” is used to train you to self-regulate, or gain more control over these functions. With practice you can learn control over a variety of stress related symptoms such as headaches, hypertension, pain or heart palpitations. Chronic pain due to muscle spasm, nerve injury, or vascular insufficiency, anxiety states, and insomnia can all be treated successfully with Biofeedback. As you learn to regulate your symptoms, you may be able to reduce the amount of medication you are taking. Below are two of the portable biofeedback units that are used for home training. I have portable GSR, EMG and Temperature biofeedback units. By using biofeedback at home, clients are often able to more quickly and effectively integrate the concepts and skills learned through the in office training.
