Biofeedback is a non-pharmacological, noninvasive, painless therapy and training, allowing to improve one’s physical and mental state based on observation of body signals. Trainees are taught to consciously control certain physiological processes such as muscle tension and breath rate under stress and increase the degree of relaxation.
Rationale of biofeedback
When treating mental health problems sometimes it is hard to find suitable medication or adjust it to suitable dosage allowing for optimal functioning and health. Sometimes medication cannot be applied due to other leading medical conditions. In such cases biofeedback can serve as a valuable alternative.
