In biofeedback, the patterns you see in the displays you can learn to internally sense, understand, and then control. Biofeedback helps you catch the exact moments when physical changes happen. The key is active, instant measurement, which is very different from passive static measurements. It is actionable.
Biofeedback improves your ability to sense and then control the very thoughts and feelings that trigger mind-body shifts—both healthy and unhealthy.
Over nearly 50 years, biofeedback has earned enthusiastic acceptance by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and by leading physicians, hospitals and medical schools, including Harvard and the Mayo Clinic.
Biofeedback is safe and painless. It involves the application of sensitive medical sensors to the skin to measure many internal bodily systems. This information is then displayed in real-time via beautiful graphic displays and sounds. When you can see your physiology, you can rapidly learn to control it.
You will observe and gradually learn to control:
Neurofeedback is a special form of biofeedback, focused on brainwaves. Brainwave patterns reflect individual differences in brain function, health, attention, microbehaviors, and many other factors. Recent advances in computational neuroscience have made possible ever-finer detection and training of the brain. It's applications are growing, and include:
