Focal Points provides non-pharmacological solutions, including biofeedback therapy, as anxiety treatment for adults and children.
Consider joining our hundreds of clients who have benefited from biofeedback therapy, an effective anxiety treatment.
What is biofeedback therapy?
Biofeedback therapy is a sensory awareness training technique that teaches children and adults to improve their health, performance, and ability to cope with stress by using signals from their own bodies.
Treatment for anxiety and beyond
Many people who benefit from biofeedback therapy suffer from conditions that are either brought on or exacerbated by stress. In addition to treating anxiety, stress, and depression, biofeedback also helps alleviate symptoms associated with the following disorders:
- High blood pressure
- Migraine or tension headaches
- Digestive disorders
How Focal Points uses biofeedback
Here’s what you can expect when you or your child receives biofeedback treatment from our experienced, caring clinicians:
- Electrodes attached to your skin will monitor your heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, and other bodily functions.
- You will observe a screen that shows you the different rate of each bodily function.
- Your therapist will guide you toward consciously regulating your bodily functions as you see them displayed before you. For example, you will watch, in real time, as your breathing rate decreases as a result of your own work!
What benefits does biofeedback therapy confer? When provided with additional information about internal functions, clients can take steps to improve a number of symptoms and conditions, including many that are stress-related.
The technology used allows clients to understand and control bodily processes that happen involuntarily, including heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and skin temperature. By getting these functions under control, a multitude of symptoms and disorders are alleviated.
If you suffer from anxiety, depression, or stress, have you considered biofeedback therapy as a treatment option? Give it a try.
