Evidence Based Practice & Research

Research shows that biofeedback, alone and in combination with other behavioural therapies, shows efficacy in a variety of medical and psychological disorders, ranging from headache to hypertension to temporomandibular joint complaint? to attentional disorders.

 

Bio/neurofeedback does not specifically target a disorder. With clinical insight and appropriate training, a client can be shown how to change the timing and activation patterns of the brain and nervous system. This helps to establish changes in brain/body feedback loops and pathways which in turn create a better state of regulation resulting in the amelioration of a wide a variety of symptoms.

AAPB is an international association for the study of biofeedback and applied psychophysiology. AAPB is an interdisciplinary organization representing the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, dentistry, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social work, education, counselling , and others.
