According to Web MD, biofeedback " is used to help prevent or treat conditions, including migraine headaches and chronic pain.
The idea behind biofeedback is that, by harnessing the power of your mind and becoming aware of what's going on inside the body, you have more control over health ."
How Does Biofeedback Work?
During a biofeedback therapy session, sensors are attached to skin or fingers. These sensors measure heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, sweating and muscle tension.
When under stress, heart rate and blood pressure can rise. Breathing is more rapid, muscles tighten and sweating may start. A biofeedback session help identify these reactions and offers techniques to lessen or stop them.
Health care providers such as psychiatrists and psychologists offer biofeedback therapy. Ask your health care practitioner if biofeedback can be right for you, and for a recommendation on how to find a qualified biofeedback therapist.
