Biofeedback Training

Nurse Anesthesiologist

Biofeedback is a holistic practice in which people are trained to improve their health by using signals from their own bodies and by then working consciously to affect change. It is generally used by licensed medical practitioners in order to help their patients overcome some kind of problem or chronic pain. Physical therapists may use biofeedback training to help stroke victims regain movement in paralyzed muscles. Psychologists use it to help clients learn to relax and relieve stress. It may even be used to relieve effects and symptoms of epilepsy.

Biofeedback training uses the biofeedback machines in order to gauge a person’s internal bodily functions and help that person become more in tune with their body and how it operates. From this patients can learn what triggers their symptoms, and are taught some kind of relaxation technique to help relieve the symptoms. Biofeedback training places an unusual demand on the patient, because they are required to make an extremely conscious effort to heal themselves and make progress. They must actively take part in changing their body, and give up any bad habits that are adding to the distress.

To qualify for enrollment in a biofeedback training program, you must first have a bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution in the healthcare field. Programs that qualify include physical therapy, exercise physiology, dentistry, nursing, respiratory therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, social work, counseling, rehabilitation, chiropractic, dental hygiene, and more. Therefore, to practice biofeedback, you must follow the licensing and practice rules and regulations for these professions. As with other holistic health professions, the amount of income varies based on client base and location, but offering these services in addition to physical therapy or another form of care will greatly add to your income.
