Biofeedback therapy is a non-drug treatment in which patients learn to control bodily processes that are normally involuntary, such as muscle tension, blood pressure, or heart rate. Sensors are attached to the body to measure key body functions. The idea is that you can consciously manipulate your breathing, heart rate, and other “involuntary” functions by being more mindful of how your body responds to stressors and other stimuli. There is a low risk of undesirable side effects making it suitable for children and those who wish to avoid medications, or those who cannot use them, such as during pregnancy.
