What is biofeedback?

Biofeedback is an alternative treatment approach that can help with overall stress reduction and increased well-being. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) biofeedback has been used to specifically target anxiety disorders and depression. Biofeedback is a well-documented and researched technique that has been shown to have positive effects. Biofeedback helps you to be in tune with processes that are usually automatic and out of our control. Through biofeedback you can learn to be in control of these autonomic processes.

How will biofeedback help me?

Biofeedback can benefit anyone with reducing their overall stress. Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression, or several other mental health problems, you may benefit from this treatment. It may be particularly helpful for people who suffer from panic attacks. Biofeedback will teach you how to automatically have better control over your breathing and heart rate which will in turn enhance your sense of well-being and help you to better cope with stress. People usually see results in 30 to 40 sessions.
