For millions of people suffering from certain medical conditions, medicine is not always the preferred method of treatment. Biofeedback therapy is a “mind over matter” alternative remedy using thoughts and will to control the body. For those who choose this type of treatment, a biofeedback specialist will use signals from screening equipment to teach you how to control certain body functions and their responses (such as blood pressure, muscle tension and heart rate). This form of treatment has been widely used for a number of ailments including seizures, asthma, incontinence, headaches, hot flashes and many more. Biofeedback treatment is appealing to many individuals because it eliminates the long-term use of some medications, it decreases medical costs and it puts you in charge of your own body.
