Biofeedback for psychiatry
Biofeedback enables a psychiatrist to visualize multiple physiological parameters and using it as feedback for clients. Physiological processes are usually “hidden” and unconscious, but can be out of balance. By using physiological signals as feedback, a client gains insight in their physiology and starts to understand the relationship between body and mind.
The client eventually changes behavior to restore physiological balance and improve health. Biofeedback can be a successful addition to therapies for conditions, often stress-related, like burn-out, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, headaches, insomnia, hypertension, addiction.
Neurofeedback for psychiatry
Neurofeedback enables psychiatrists to measure and train brain performance. Neurofeedback training helps a client to gain insights in EEG, thereby providing a tool to improve attention and focus. By giving insights in the client's own brain waves they learn to understand their complaints better.
Neurofeedback can be beneficial for attention-related disorders like ADHD, but also autism and insomnia.
