Biofeedback

Biofeedback Therapy in Brentwood, TN

Biofeedback is a short-term intervention, usually 3-5 sessions, during which physiological information is "fed back" to the client in the form of graphs and activities. This feedback allows clients to learn about the body's natural stress response and then, through breathing and relaxation techniques, gain a level of mastery over that response.

Biofeedback has been demonstrated through research to be effective in treating a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches, and AD/HD.

Our biofeedback therapist is trained specifically in Heart Rate Variability (HRV) biofeedback. HRV biofeedback looks at the patterns of our heart rate over time. This measure has been found to be a good indicator of the body's stress response. As client's learn to increase their heart rate variability, they become better able to reduce their stress response (and thereby their anxiety) both in the moment and in a more general sense.

As a part of this intervention, clients will be connected to a non-invasive heart rate monitor which will generate the physiological feedback on a screen in real-time.
