Biofeedback, Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Can you imagine peering inside your body and being able to see how parts of it are working? Imagine watching your muscles , your heart or your breathing, and observing changes as you directly modify these processes. It is possible to do exactly this with biofeedback.

Biofeedback (or "feedback about the body") involves using instruments to give us information about body responses that we don't usually notice. This accurate, instantaneous feedback assists people in learning to change body responses and to increase their voluntary control or self-regulation . Studies have shown that we have more control over supposedly involuntary bodily functions than we ever thought possible. Researchers have proved that many individuals can alter their involuntary responses by being "fed back" information either visually or audibly about what is going on in their bodies. As a result, biofeedback can train individuals with techniques for living a healthier life overall - whether one has a medical condition or not.

Biofeedback is one of many services offered at The Stress Reduction Center. During the initial consultation a treatment plan will be designed to effectively help you with your problems. Sometimes a combination of approaches works best. Individual therapy, couples therapy, support groups  and hypnosis are also offered.
