Why Is Biofeedback A Good Thing?

by | Feb 20, 2023 | Psychologist

Biofeedback in New York City is a technique designed to allow you to develop a greater awareness of the physiological functions of your body using electrical sensors. It helps to make you aware, through feedback, of when your body is doing various things and what you can do to affect that, such as relaxing different muscles to achieve the result you want. This means that you can essentially learn to take control of your body’s natural responses to stress and pressure.

The result is that you should be able to use these techniques to alleviate pain and anxieties and have a greater control of how your body functions.

What will biofeedback change in me?

There are many types of biofeedback, each concentrating on different body functions. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) biofeedback is a form of biofeedback that specifically concentrates on your heart rate, for instance. HRV biofeedback has been used for years to treat depressive symptoms and to also generally improve your mental and physical health. It has also widely been used for critical training in athletes in New York and further afield to reach peak performance, as research has shown that HRV biofeedback improves reaction speeds, regulation of emotions, endurance, and resilience.

EMG biofeedback concentrates on using feedback from muscle activation, which is believed to help patients learn more effective manners of using a disabled limb. EEG biofeedback, however, uses feedback from your brain activity to help with such things as ADHD, addiction, anxiety, seizures, and much more.
