Biofeedback therapy is a technique used by many to help alleviate or prevent a variety of conditions, such as but not limited to high blood pressure, chronic pain, migraines, and certain psychological disorders.

The therapy allows one to control normally involuntary physiological processes of the body such as heart rate, muscle tone, and pain perception. There are no drugs involved in this treatment and it is a noninvasive procedure, reducing the rick for complications as well as reducing side effects.
