Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using electronics that provide information on the normally automatic bodily functions, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will. In other words, train someone to acquire voluntary control of a body function.
Some of the processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception.
Biofeedback may be used to improve health, performance, and the physiological changes that often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Eventually, these changes may be maintained without the use of extra equipment, for no equipment is necessarily required to practice biofeedback.
