Learn to effectively self calm, relax and re-balance your own nervous system

Offered in conjunction with therapy, biofeedback can help reduce anxiety, lift depression, and improve stress management. Biofeedback training teaches individuals to:

  • Become aware of stress effects,
  • Regulate their reaction to stress, and
  • Shift their internal state to one that renews psychological reserves

The interplay between emotion, stress and psychiological activation can be seen here:

This is particularly helpful to understand why we experience sleep problems, physical fatigue, and irritability during periods of high stress, and why we feel much better physically when we are experiencing positive emotions.  HRV Biofeedback training uses this to teach individuals how to become aware of stress effects before their reserves become depleted, how to regulate their reaction to stress in the moment, and how to shift their own internal state to one that renews our physiological reserves.

 

Psychological Outcomes of Biofeedback:

  • increased internal awareness
  • ability to self-regulate reactivity to internal or external stressors
