Many body functions are involuntarily controlled by the mind, such as heart rate, skin temperature, and blood pressure. Using Biofeedback, the patient is able to take control of the body through thoughts thus improving the overall health condition of the body.
At Greenleaf Neuropsychology & Counseling, you will learn to improve your condition by taking control of your mind and your health.
What can I control with Biofeedback?
Your brain is always in control of your body, whether you're conscious of it or not. Conditions such as migraine headaches, chronic pain, urinary incontinence, and high blood pressure can be treated with Biofeedback. In many cases it is also used for relaxation.
What happens in a Biofeedback session?
During the session, the specialist will attach electrodes to the patient's skin and display the processes on a monitor. The therapist will guide you through the process while your condition appears.
In the different sessions, the certified specialist will teach you how to control yourself using different techniques. In this way, you will be able to control your mind and your condition.
How long will a session take?
