Biofeedback uses specialized software that enables you to track your heart rate. During the process you will be watching soothing graphics on a computer screen and listening to relaxing music. While you work through the modules, the software relays immediate information to you on the screen so you can actually see how your body physically responds to your thoughts, emotions, stress, tension, or relaxation.
The software we use involves mastering your way through varying levels of biofeedback games where your task is to achieve a calm and relaxed state in order to complete goals on the screen. In this way, you are able to have fun while learning an essential life skill. These programs make biofeedback an excellent choice for children as well as adults.
The process helps you gain mind-body awareness and conscious control over your normally unconscious physiological responses. When you gain access to information about your body that you previously did not know, you learn to gain more control over your states. The principle you are learning is self-regulation and, once mastered, can be done without the use of the software during any times of anxiety, stress, or tension.

We can answer them for you.
Is biofeedback appropriate for children and adolescents?
Absolutely! Learning the techniques of biofeedback with our program is like playing a computer game that is both fun and educational. Children and adolescents will learn effective ways to manage stress and anxiety. After they master the program, they reduce the amount of worry they experience and will have gained effective coping skills for all areas of life.
Because anxious children tend to exhibit difficulties with behavioral control, these techniques can also help children improve their overall responses to their environment. Test, performance, and social anxieties can all be lessened when you know how to control your body’s responses to stress. Biofeedback mastery in children and adolescents can be viewed as an essential protective skill that will help guide them through all periods of future stress.
