Biofeedback is a technique that is used to control some of your body's involuntary functions, such as your heart rate, blood pressure etc. It is used to help relieve symptoms of conditions like high blood pressure, chronic stress, headaches, pain, and anxiety. During biofeedback, the patient is connected to electrical sensors to receive information about the body. The objective of this technique is to make subtle changes to the body that result in a desired effect. This might include relaxing certain muscles to slow the heart rate or reducing feelings of pain.
