Biofeedback is about calming ourselves and relaxing. Learning to relax consciously. So we’re definitely working on our ever-increasing self-awareness when we’re doing biofeedback.
As part of the relaxation side of a biofeedback session, there are many ways to help to improve the depth of mindbody relaxation. Breathing exercises are often prescribed together with biofeedback sessions. Progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and meditation can all play a role in our practice.
There’s no reason why biofeedback can’t be in regular rotation with everything else we’re doing to help ourselves heal. Conscious breathing exercises, forms of self-hypnosis, and biofeedback all go very well together. (Brainwave entrainment, trance state, mesmerization, and meditation can all achieve various states of self-hypnosis; consider the terms to be interchangeable in their desired effects.)
Folks in chronic pain could combine at least 7-10 modalities as part of our daily self-care routine. Personally, I love to rotate combinations of heat therapy, cold therapy, meditation, entrainment, breathing, visualization, and group therapy, and floatation therapy as a part of every single week.
Consider including biotherapy as part of your Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), especially for PTSD, chronic pain, and anxiety issues.
