What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback uses technology to provide you with feedback on your body’s key systems. This data allows you to better control your body’s health and to teach your body to perform more optimally. Simply put: Through biofeedback, you receive information (feedback) regarding your body (bio): heart rate, muscle tension and blood pressure, among other things.

Biofeedback may be used to treat many conditions, such as chronic pain, headache tension, migraine tension and high blood pressure. This therapy teaches relaxation techniques to calm the body, both mentally and physically, alleviating the unwanted symptoms.

Popular types of Biofeedback

  • Heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback: measures respiration rate and heart rate
  • Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback): measures brainwave patterns
  • Electromyography (EMG) biofeedback: measures muscle tension patterns
  • Thermal biofeedback: measures skin temperature

Neurocore’s Biofeedback Training

Each Neurocore session begins with HRV biofeedback training, during which your heart rate and breathing patterns are monitored in tandem to determine a measurement of cohesion. The better the cohesion between your breathing and heart rate, the better you’re able to manage stress. Additionally, high cohesion means less stress is placed on your cardiovascular and respiratory systems, which is better for your overall heart health. After Neurocore’s biofeedback training, we add neurofeedback (or EEG biofeedback) training.
