Biofeedback

What is biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a method for visualizing and training physiological activity resulting from the mind-body interface. By using these signals as real-time feedback, people can learn to become aware of usually unconscious processes, thereby allowing them to self-regulate physiological processes in order to improve their health.

The ultimate goal of biofeedback is to gain more control over physiological processes and influencing behavior that leads to misbalances in these processes. Biofeedback is about reaching optimal health across physical, mental and emotional states. It focuses on treating the cause of health problems, rather than treating symptoms.

Research shows that biofeedback, by itself and combined with other behavioral therapies, is effective for treating a range of medical and psychological disorders. Please see the Assocation for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) review of efficacy ratings for an overview of biofeedback and neurofeedback applications.

Physiological signals explained

The most common physiological signals that can be measured with biofeedback equipment are:

How does a biofeedback session work?

Offer biofeedback as an addition to existing treatments. During a biofeedback session real-time audiovisual feedback is provided based on normalized values. A client will be rewarded for success in terms of scores, by playing music, by showing a picture or with a video game.

Measure physiology

Measure

Identifying the cause of the physiological misbalances of the client and setting the treatment plan

Awareness

Awareness

Visualizing one or more physiological signals and thereby showing interrelationship of the body and the mind

Optimize

Optimize

Optimizing the body-mind interface with real-time audiovisual feedback based on the physiological state

Analyze

Monitor

Analyzing physiological effects and results of one or multiple sessions

What are the advantages?

  • Creating awareness of physiological processes
  • Active role and participation of the client
  • Holistic approach of body and mind
  • Non-pharmacological and non-invasive
  • Complementary to existing therapies
