The term Biofeedback refers to a technique whereby you can gain control over involuntary functions of your body such as breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, nervous conditions such as anxiety, stress, and hyperreactivity.  The simple idea behind biofeedback therapy is that by harnessing the power of your mind you can increase your awareness of what’s going on inside your body and body functions and gain more control over them usually with gentle relaxation, muscle and thought control techniques to gain  control over your health and well-being without the use of harsh drugs. Biofeedback has been used with some success to help prevent or treat conditions, including migraine headaches, chronic pain, incontinence, and high blood pressure.

Biofeedback is a process the first  step of  which is to gain greater awareness of many physiological functions  using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems such as brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception and then manipulate them with the aid of breathing, relaxation, muscle control and other techniques.  Different relaxation techniques used in biofeedback therapy include deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation (alternate tightening and relaxing of different muscle groups), guided imagery (concentrating on a specific image such as the color and texture of an orange to focus your mind and make you feel more relaxed and Mindfulness or awareness through meditation  by focusing your thoughts and letting go or replacing the negative emotions with positive ones. Some of the processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception.

Biofeedback Devices/Instruments:

\In Biofeedback approach to wellness first step is the monitoring and measurement of various types of body and physiological conditions. Accordingly different types of instruments are used to monitor these functions include, Electromyogram (EMG) that measures muscle activity and muscle tension and is used for  back pain, headaches, anxiety disorders, and incontinence; Thermal, used to measure skin temperature and used for headaches and Raynaud’s disease; Neurofeedback or electroencephalography (EEG), measures brain waves and is used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy and other seizure disorders.; Electrodermal activity (EDA), that measures sweating and is used for pain and anxiety management and Heart rate variability (HRA) that measures heart rate and is used for the management of anxiety, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and irregular heartbeat.

Biofeedback Training:

It is important that your healthcare professional is well educated and trained in theory, instrumentation, and techniques to be able to monitor and train the patient in these relaxations, awareness and mind over body control techniques. In the hands of a well-trained therapist, you can gain control over your health and wellness without harsh drug treatment and side effects

Bioresonance Biofeedback:

Bioresonance is a phenomenon whereby all living organisms and their components emit measurable electromagnetic waves, the frequency of which is dependent on their physiological state. In holistic terms, body is construed as a system of energy and its cells, organs and tissues which are subject to changes from external energy sources, noxious stimuli or challenges of various pathogens, allergens, chemicals, and bio-chemicals. In the altered or diseased state this normal resonance energy is usually lower than in the normal state. This bioresonance and the changes in bioresonnace are measured with the help of Bioresonance machines or devices, such as the one by Oberon Biofeedback. These are very accurate and highly calibrated machines that with the help of very sophisticated NLS software provide a digital scan of the tissues and cells in the healthy and diseased states. Furthermore, these bioresonance biofeedback machines have sophisticated technology to provide and supplement bioresonance energy externally and thus bringing the  tissues to normal healthy levels. This then allows the cells, tissues, organs and body to heal and recover to normal healthy state.

Biofeedback Therapy

Biofeedback therapy is defined as a method of treatment or therapy that uses the technique of Biofeedback whereby you can gain awareness, control, and ability to alter involuntary biological functions and conditions such as heart rate, blood  pressure, pain, anxiety, stress and neuromuscular dysfunctions causing conditions such as urinary incontinence and constipation.

Biofeedback Therapy Treatment

Biofeedback Therapy Treatment typically involves measurement and monitoring of physiological parameters such as  your heart and breathing rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, sweating, or muscle activity. These functions vary with stress. Your heart rate may speed up or your muscles may tighten. Your breathing could quicken, blood pressure rise and you could start to sweat. You can see these responses as they happen on the monitor. A qualified therapist trains you to counter these physiological effects with breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. Different relaxation exercises and techniques used in biofeedback therapy, include, deep breathing, muscle relaxation (alternately tightening and then relaxing different muscle groups), guided imagery (concentrating on a specific image to focus your mind and make you feel more relaxed (e.g. color of an orange), mindfulness and meditation techniques for focusing your thoughts on positive emotions while letting go of negative emotions.

These Biofeedback sessions are typically done in a therapist’s office. A biofeedback therapist trains and helps you to practice relaxation techniques and exercises, which when fine-tuned you can use to control different body functions. For example, your therapist might teach you a relaxation technique to turn down certain brainwaves that are activated during a headache.  There are now a number of computerized devices that connect to biofeedback sensors. There are now iPhone and Android Applications that are used with some biofeedback therapy devices.

Benefits Biofeedback Therapy

  1. It is non-invasive.
  2. It does not use chemicals/bio-chemicals or harsh drugs that can cause many side effects.
  3. It is used conveniently at your care provider’s office at conveniently scheduled appointment
  4. It is highly effective when used as an adjunct to your naturopathic and nutritional treatment
  5. Enhances self-awareness and control and promotes a general sense of wellbeing.

Bioresonance Biofeedback Therapy

Bioresonance  Biofeedback Therapy is a special type of Biofeedback Therapy based on the phenomenon of Bioresonance and energy medicine. Bioresonance is a phenomenon whereby all living organisms and their components emit measurable electromagnetic waves, the frequency of which are dependent on their physiological  (normal/healthy and abnormal/disease) states.

In the altered or diseased state resonance energy is usually lower than in the normal state. These small changes in bioresonnace are measured with the help of Bioresonance machines or devices, such as the one by Oberon Biofeedback. These are very accurate and highly calibrated machines that with the help of sophisticated NLS software provides a digital scan of the tissues and cells in the healthy and diseased states.

Bioresnance Biofeedback Therapy is also a  non-invasive therapy and involves placement of bioprobes on your head for diagnosis and treatment. The bio-probes connected to  Oberon Biofeedback device not only scans the body part but also acts as a conduit to submit electromagnetic energy to bring the tissue into natural balance that helps promote natural healing.

Quantum Biofeedback Therapy

Quantum Biofeedback Therapy is a naturopathic practice that measures the body’s energetic components and helps detect and measure both chemical and physiological imbalances caused by a prolonged period of stress from a variety of sources. Most adult population suffer a variety of adverse effects of stress such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, reduced abilities and decision-making skills, weight gain and more.  It usually starts gradually and then becomes a chronic problem defying easy solutions and can be extremely frustrating and even debilitating.

Enter Quantum Biofeedback Therapy to the rescue. Quantum Biofeedback therapy is a procedure that promotes healing of the body and mind by mildly and non-invasively re-balancing the electromagnetic energy (bioresonance) levels to the normal state.  It is made possible by a machine like Oberon Biofeedback that measures and scans  the body organs and tissues for their Bioresonance energy levels to determine the extent of stress damage and then rebalances and harmonizes the bioresonance energy imbalances with externally supplied electromagnetic waves.

By restoring and harmonizing the natural bioresonance frequencies, Quantum Biofeedback Therapy allows the body to heal naturally without any adverse effects.  Quantum biofeedback is a safe and non-invasive therapy which when combined with proper nutrition, behavioral modification, and healthy lifestyle changes can bring a pronounced and long lasting relief to patients suffering from long-term effects of stress.
