What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the use of computer sensors to help you recognize the relationship between psychological processes and physiological changes within your body. With practice, you can learn to bring these processes under voluntary control and exert more control over your bodily responses to stressful events.You will not only become aware of physiological signals, you will also learn to react to these signals so as to avoid stress, reduce tension and lead a more relaxed life!
