Biofeedback is a therapeutic technique in which sensors are attached to the client's fingers to measure physiological markers of stress. It is intended to help clients better understand how their bodies work to develop better control over body functions in order to tackle health concerns. Biofeedback is established on the principle of "mind over matter." With that in mind and by using techniques learned in therapy, clients can improve their health by being mindful of their bodies' response to stressors and other stimuli.
This therapy technique can be vitally helpful to those who struggle to cope effectively with stress. Chronic stress has been shown to dramatically affect the body and one's health by raising blood pressure, increasing body temperature, and even disrupting how the brain functions. Biofeedback helps you to gain control over your body processes like your heart rate and blood pressure, to better manage your stress response, and therefore help you lead a healthier and happier life.
