Biofeedback is a non-invasive computer feedback-based treatment, which involves learning about your body’s response to stress. Physiological changes in your body are tracked and you are provided with live feedback. Various bodily responses are monitored including your heart rate, breath rate, heart rate variability, skin sweat response, muscle tension, and peripheral temperature. Biofeedback often involves learning techniques that can be help regulate these bodily responses and achieve relaxation.

What happens at the first session of biofeedback?

Towards the end of the initial session, we would collaboratively decide whether biofeedback would be a helpful treatment for you to pursue.
