What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a mind-body technique that can be used to control your heart rate, breathing patterns, and stress responses. Your body changes under stress or chronic pain. Your heart rate increases, your breathing accelerates, and your body’s muscles tighten. Biofeedback can help you make changes in your body to relieve pain, increase focus, and reduce tension. This can improve your overall health and vitality.

An Evidence-Based Solution
Over the past decade, scientific literature has seen a phenomenal increase in the number and quality of research studies demonstrating the positive impacts of meditation. The success of meditation is directly correlated to several biometric ‘indicators’ – of which Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is considered to be one of the strongest.
The Benefits of HRV Biofeedback
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a measure of the variation in time between heartbeats and is a strong indicator of your meditative state. It has been shown through decades of research that a higher HRV correlates with an optimal, relaxed nervous system state, positive emotions, and improved health.
According to the research, HRV biofeedback may, as part of a healthy lifestyle, help in the following ways:
- Improve ability to handle adversity or stressful situations
- Decrease anxiety
- Stress management
- Reduce depression
- Improve responses to anger-inducing stimuli
- Improve sleep quality
- Reduce pain
- Improve gastrointestinal disorder symptoms
- Improve mood and psychological well-being
- Help fine-tune skills for optimal sports performance
