Biofeedback

 

What is biofeedback? "Biofeedback is a type of complementary and alternative medicine called mind-body therapy. It's designed to enable you - in mind-over-matter fashion - to use your thoughts and will to control your body. Biofeedback is based on the idea, confirmed by scientific studies, that people have the innate potential to influence with their minds many of the automatic, involuntary functions of their bodies." www.mayoclinic.com/health/biofeedback/SA00083
