  • The goal of biofeedback therapy is to observe and track these subconscious physiological responses to both physical and emotional stressors.
  • This allows you to understand your involuntary actions and learn how to control your body’s reaction.

Tracking Involuntary Functions

Biofeedback therapy involves monitoring a variety of bodily functions, such as:
  • Breathing rate
  • Heart rate
  • Skin temperature
  • Blood pressure
  • Sweating
  • Muscle contractions
These functions are monitored by biofeedback devices and presented to the patient in the form of visual signals like blinking lights or pictures on a computer screen.  For instance, if you see your heart rate as a blinking light on your screen, a blinking light means you need to practice stress-relief techniques to reduce your heart rate. If you practice relaxation exercises, as you do so, the blinking light or image will slow down as you practice self-control.

Treating Withdrawal Symptoms and Beyond

  • Biofeedback therapy can also be used to treat substance abuse withdrawal symptoms.
  • The effects of alcohol or drug withdrawal are often accompanied by increased physical tension and involuntary reactions, including feelings of anxiety, depression, persistent muscle pain, and insomnia.
  • People in recovery can use biofeedback to manage these symptoms and make the withdrawal go more smoothly.

Biofeedback Therapy Exercises

Biofeedback involves a range of exercises designed to help you recover. These exercises are designed to help you relax, focus on the present moment, and use positive thinking to help you regain control of your thoughts and body.
