Biofeedback training is a solution for stress reduction, coping with anxiety, and improving focus. It works on the idea that by enhancing an individual’s perception of how their body is responding to internal and external stimuli, they can learn to reduce the negative effects of stress and relax more effectively.
Individuals are connected to sensors, such as a fingertip heart rate monitor, that can detect how their body responds to stress. A therapist, trained in biofeedback, educates individuals on what their body’s responses mean and works with them in finding ways to improve their overall response to stress.
Sessions focus on practicing these new behaviors and building awareness of physical responses to stress and relaxation.
