Biofeedback is a technique and process which allows individuals to measure and change their physiological output with the goal of improving overall health and performance for the individual.

The purpose of Biofeedback is to enable the individual to sync the mind and body; to use the mind as an influencer in the way the body physically reacts to things.

Physical behaviours such as breathing or heart rate are processes which are occurring automatically throughout our lives.

A trained professional will measure your bodies reaction to certain triggers and then give you feedback. For example, in a stressful situation, your body might trigger an increased heart rate, quick breathing and a spike in blood pressure. The readings on the machines and sensors will teach you how to recognise and control these physiological reactions. By controlling your body’s reactions to these events, you can improve your overall wellbeing.

Biofeedback is non-invasive and once you have learnt the techniques, it is a practice which you can refine through the rest of your life.

There are a number of machines which may be used in Biofeedback consultations. Each machine measures a different output. The machines can measure tension in your muscles, your body temperature, sweat glands or your brain waves. Each machine measure serves a different purpose and all of them are used to help measure the triggers of these physiological outputs and therefore help to assess what areas require mindfulness and control.
