Biofeedback Therapy

     Biofeedback involves a bodily function (such as heart rate or muscle tension) is monitored and the information is fed back to the client. Through this process the client becomes better able to control the function. For example, they learn to relax to slow their heart rate or decrease muscle tension more effectively than they could relying on normal, un-amplified feedback about these functions.
