The proven benefits of biofeedback are numerous. Regular training sessions can support the adrenals, restore the nervous system to it’s parasympathetic state and allow the brain to operate predominantly in the relaxed Alpha rhythm. The most common response that clients feel after a session is a profound sense of peace and calm.
This feeling is also referred to as the parasympathetic state or “rest and digest” and is the state of our nervous system that we were meant to function in most often, not the sympathetic state – also known as the “fight or flight” state. The parasympathetic state is inherently healing as this is when our bodily functions are performing most efficiently and focusing on the tasks they were designed for.
Stress hormones cause undo hardship and strain to the vascular system. During stress states, the overall hormonal stress response of the body is severely challenged, specifically the adrenals and kidneys.
