Biofeedback is a technique that trains people to lower stress and improve their physical and mental health by controlling certain bodily processes that normally happen involuntarily, such as heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and skin temperature. Stress is something we all face daily in our personal and professional lives.
What we don’t realize is that stress, when unattended to, can lead to physiological changes that can produce heart attacks, depression, anxiety, and other negative physical and mental issues.
The Biofeedback program we utilize is called HeartMath, which is a research-based system of scientifically validated tools, techniques, and technology designed to increase emotional self-regulation and help to teach you how to regulate your physiological state and consequently reduce anxiety, stress, depression, and chronic pain. HeartMath utilizes a sensor that attaches to your earlobe from a USB port and objectively records your heart rhythms in comparison to your ideal coherence state (a regulated emotional state). You will immediately see the results on the computer and will use new skills to begin to better regulate your own bodily reactions. Over the course of 5-7 sessions, utilizing the principles of relaxation, mindfulness, emotional restructuring, and meditation, you will learn techniques you can use during the day to help you control your breathing and heart and in turn create a more positive emotional state.
Our primary goal with HeartMath is to look at the feedback your body is giving you, teach you techniques to help adjust your physical reactions and improve your mental state.
