How does a biofeedback session work?
To perform a biofeedback session, a certified biofeedback therapist will always use specialized equipment called a biofeedback device. While you’re hooked to the biofeedback device, the therapist has it run a specific software protocol based on a previously created inventory of your individual stressors.
Depending on your specific stressors, the protocol monitors your brain waves, heart rate, breathing, skin temperature or muscle tension. The information gathered is fed back to you on a monitor – hence the term ‘biofeedback’. With the software running, the biofeedback therapist then teaches you to make deliberate changes in your body. If the therapist uses a quantum biofeedback device such as the QUEX S or QUEX ED, the devices also sets out to activate your body’s subconscious self-healing capacity. All you have to do in that case is sit back and relax.
