Science Behind Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a safe, noninvasive technique that gathers signals from the body and “feeds back” this information. Common biofeedback modalities (or “signals”) include:

  • Brainwaves (EEG biofeedback or neurofeedback)
  • Respiratory rate (or breathing rate)
  • Heart rate
  • Muscle activity
  • Sweat gland activity
  • Temperature

Biofeedback is used to treat a number of clinical disorders from ADD/ADHD to anxiety, sleeping problems, headaches, and hypertension. It is also highly effective in peak performance training. The highly sophisticated and sensitive equipment is able to provide an individual with important information to help him or her reach their fullest potential. The following video by Mind Media provides information about biofeedback and neurofeedback.

Mental skills training and biofeedback are helpful to athletes in a variety of different sports.
