Biofeedback is a technique in which people learn to control physiological processes that are typically considered involuntary, such as heart rate, breathing, and temperature. You learn to monitor and regulate your mind and body in ways that promote mental and physical health and well-being. By receiving instant computerized feedback regarding these processes, you will learn to control, adjust, and correct inappropriate physiological processes, which will ultimately improve your health.
Biofeedback is not a passive measurement process nor a passive “treatment” process. There are various ways you can view this biological information. You can simply view the data as it changes or receive feedback via various interactive games. The process requires your active involvement in the training process in order for you to learn to control your body and improve your health.

Learning biofeedback can take time and individual results depend on various factors including severity and chronicity of the condition, medication prescribed, presence of other concurrent medical factors, and ultimately, individual levels of motivation.
