Biofeedback helps us to become aware of, and control certain body functions that are normally outside of your awareness and voluntary control. It helps us pay attention to body signals, and to learn from what our body is telling us.

By closely observing characteristics like levels of muscle tension, or skin temperature, with the help of special sensors placed in contact with the skin during a biofeedback session, we can learn to be more aware of psychological factors that influence stress, well-being, and pain.

Several studies have found that biofeedback can be a viable and effective complement to both psychotherapy, with or without concomitant use of medications, in the treatment of various disorders including general anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia, tension headache and migraine.
