What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback works on a cellular level, encouraging the body to re-discover, re-establish and strengthen new healthier patterns from a place of harmony.
What does this mean?
Essentially Biofeedback allows you to discover and gain control of internal functions that are usually outside of your conscious control.
The 'Bio-' of Biofeedback refers to the body and 'feedback' is the information we receive on the body.
This feedback helps you focus on making subtle changes in your body, such as relaxing certain muscles, to achieve the results you want, such as reducing pain.
One of Biofeedback's vital jobs is to rebalance the ANS (autonomic nervous system) which plays a huge part in your health.
Predominantly we focus on reducing the activity of the SNS (sympathetic nervous system - the fight or flight mode) and stimulate the PNS (parasympathetic nervous system - the rest and digest response) which allows healing to begin.
Calming the body allows it to return back to its homoeostatic state.
Enabling your body to return to its homoeostatic state reduces your body's symptoms and enabling you to trust your body once again.
