Biofeedback is a type of therapy that uses sensors attached to your body to measure key body functions. It is intended to help you learn more about how your body works and to aid in self-regulation. When used alongside therapy, this information may help you to develop better control over certain body functions and address health concerns.
At Prosperity Counseling, our clinicians are trained in using HeartMath technology to provide biofeedback as part of your therapy experience. HeartMath technology is an innovative approach to improving emotional wellbeing. Learn to change your heart rhythm pattern to create physiological coherence; a scientifically measurable state characterized by increased order and harmony in our mind, emotions and body.
Most of us have been taught in school that the heart is constantly responding to “orders” sent by the brain in the form of neural signals. However, it is not as commonly known that the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart! Moreover, these heart signals have a significant effect on brain function – influencing emotional processing as well as higher cognitive faculties such as attention, perception, memory, and problem-solving. In other words, not only does the heart respond to the brain, but the brain continuously responds to the heart.
