Many people seek Robin's Biofeedback expertise to address concerns like these: 

  • Anxiousness or stress
  • Asthma
  • ADHD
  • Chemotherapy side effects
  • Chronic pain
  • Constipation
  • Incontinence
  • Headache, TMJ
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)

During biofeedback, you’re connected to electrical sensors on your head, wrists, and ankles that communicate information to a computer about your body systems. In fact, it analyzes over 11,000 energy signals, which are all potential stressors to the body. Biofeedback works with your human energy field by restoring the flow of energy in the body with subtle electrical signals, stimulating a healing response on a cellular level. This helps you to better deal with stressors in your physical and emotional body.

Biofeedback helps to restore balance in your body through stress reduction protocols, muscle re-education, relaxation training, pain management and brainwave relaxation training. All of this is done by the Biofeedback machine. While you're connected to the electrical sensors and receiving biofeedback therapy, your only job is to relax. 

Biofeedback is a powerful tool with many benefits:

  • It's non-invasive.
  • It may reduce or eliminate your need for medications.
  • It may enhance the benefits of medications.
  • It may help women who can't take medication during pregnancy.
  • It allows you to take an active role in your health and well-being.

Robin uses a variety of biofeedback methods depending on your health problems and goals. Biofeedback types include:

  • Brain waves. This type uses cranial sensors to monitor your brain waves using an electroencephalograph (EEG).
  • Heart rate. This type uses wrist sensors to measure your heart rate and how your heart rate varies via electrocardiograph (ECG).
  • Muscle contraction. This type involves placing sensors over your skeletal muscles with an electromyograph (EMG) to monitor the electrical activity that causes muscle contraction.
  • Temperature. Sensors attached to your wrists and ankles to measure blood flow to your skin. Because your temperature often drops when you're under stress, a low reading can prompt you to begin relaxation techniques.

Biofeedback is generally safe, but it might not be appropriate for everyone. Biofeedback devices might not work properly on people with certain medical conditions, such as heart rhythm problems, specifically those with a pacemaker. Be sure to discuss it with your doctor first if you have concerns.
