If you struggle with stress and stress related symptoms, it may be that you have forgotten what it feels like to be in a relaxed state. Years of chronic stress has conditioned you to recognize a high energy stressed level as normal and this keeps your nervous system on hyper-speed. Over time this leads to muscle tension, fatigue, lowered immune response, disturbed sleep, pain, and many other symptoms of chronic stress.
Biofeedback combines techniques like deep breathing, meditation and visualization to retrain you to recognize a relaxed state and help you learn to voluntarily trigger the nervous system to stay in a relaxed state. The biofeedback equipment does this by detecting small changes in physiological measures such as your skin temperature, heart rate, and respiration, and graphically representing these changes for you on a computer screen as you practice different relaxation techniques.
