Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a scientific method for treating physical and mental symptoms. Biofeedbackt is well-founded in numerous studies. The patient learns to consciously perceive and influence unconscious processes in the body.

With the help of electrodes that are attached to specific areas of the body, breathing frequency, heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, muscle tone or sweat gland activity can be measured and trained,.

The data are analyzed in real time and made visible to the patient in the form of a video feedback. The patient can then perceive the above parameters, influence them and train them up or down.


AREAS OF TREATMENT

  • chronic back pain
  • muscle tension
  • bruxism (gnashing of teeth)
  • high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • stress-related illnesses such as sleep disorders, tinnitus or irritable bowel syndrome
  • migraine
  • tension headache
  • cold hand or feet

What happens during a session?

  • Sensors are attached to the places that are necessary for the corresponding symptom.
  • The user sees animations or films that make changes in his tension, heart rate or stress immediately visible.
  • Through this immediate feedback on the physical signals, the user learns to train the perception and how to achieve the desired reaction.
  • The electrodes lie on the skin and are not uncomfortable.
  • A session lasts about 50 minutes.
  • About 10-20 sessions are needed to achieve longlasting improvements.

FOR PARENTS

If you would like to make an appointment for your child, you can book in our online calendar under Biofeedback "1st session: Intro and reference measurement".  You are welcome to attend, ask questions and see how biofeedback works. For further sessions, it is beneficial if your child is alone. Of course you are able to wait for your child outside in the office. However, we need your consent in the form of a signature that you, as the legal guardian, agree that we are allowed to carry out this procedure with your child. If you have separated custody, we need the signature of the legal guardian. To make this easier, you can also download the required document here and bring it already signed to the first session.
