Biofeedback is the use of electronic monitoring and/or training of physiological responses like muscle tension, heart rate, breathing patterns and chemistry, hand and foot temperature, perspiration, and/or brain waves. It does nothing to you. It is like an electronic mirror, where you can see on a computer screen how your body is showing pain, anxiety, anger, physical or health problems or optimal function states. You can learn how to control your physiology as part of pain or stress management, health status improvement, and optimal performance. Dr Whitehouse or assistants works as a coach or therapist while showing you your mind-body interactions with the biofeedback as you learn the skills of greater awareness and control, called self-regulation. Many Olympic competitors are now using BIOFEEDBACK in their training, too. Many clients use Dr Whitehouse’s copyrighted SQRT technique for preparing for any kind of upcoming challenge.
