Biofeedback includes:   

  • Breathing: Respiratory biofeedback to monitor your breathing patterns and respiration rate
  • Heart rate: Finger or earlobe sensors to measure your heart rate and heart rate variability
  • Muscle: Sensors placed over your skeletal muscles to monitor the electrical activity that causes muscle contraction
  • Sweat glands: Sensors attached around your fingers or on your palm to measure the activity of your sweat glands and the amount of perspiration on your skin, alerting you to anxiety
  • Temperature: Sensors attached to your fingers to measure your blood flow to your skin

Biofeedback can help you to gain an understanding and awareness about your ability to directly impact your physical state with your thoughts alone.  The feedback helps you to be able to focus on the subtle changes such as breath, focus, and relaxation.  Old Market Neurotherapy offers:

  • HeartMath Stress Management System provides immediate feedback of emotions when reflected in the beat-to-beat changes in the heart rhythms, also called Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Heart rate variability is a non-invasive biofeedback tool to measure nervous system patterns. Using the Quick Coherence technique and portable emWave technology you can learn to think more clearly maintain emotional balance and reduce stress effects on the body. www.heartmath.com

WHAT MY PEOPLE SAY ABOUT BIOFEEDBACK….”Just need someone to vent to, do have a pretty stressful job and don’t want to be a gossipy person but normal people don’t understand the dynamics of O.R. and coming to talk about it helps the stress”. M.E.
