Resonance Biofeedback

Rebalance your health - Biofeedback for Stress and Your Chronic Health Conditions

If you’re living with a chronic health condition, or chronic pain, you’re likely to have tried many different things for relief. And often your condition is made worse by stress – provoking an unfortunate circle of cause and effect. It can be difficult to know what to try first – after all, how do you know what supplements are best if you can’t get regular bloodwork done?


Do you have:


●    Unexplained aches and pains?

●    Digestive issues?

●    Fatigue?

●    Unexplained symptoms?

●    Trouble sleeping?

●    Brain fog?


If you answered yes to any of these, resonance biofeedback may be a good fit for you.


Resonance biofeedback is a painless, straightforward approach that helps you get control of your stress levels and “recharge” your cells. It can also reveal important imbalances in your body, which can be tested for and treated in a functional medicine approach. You and your practitioner then work together on the next steps towards improving your energy levels and quality of life. Yes, it really is that simple.

What Is Resonance Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a technique where you can develop control over body functions and systems that are often considered automatic. Treatments typically include the use of specialised software or monitoring devices that can detect the immediate changes in body functions picked up by electrical sensors. These functions may include heart rate, temperature, brain waves, or breathing.


Resonance feedbackis a subtle but powerful form of biofeedback. It focuses on the low-level electrical signals your body uses on a cellular level to transfer messages back and forth to your brain. Once these are measured, the machine feeds perfectly safe, very small electrical pulses into your body. These constantly-changing pulses enter your cells, and can improve the quality of your own electrical signals.


The software also logs a number of signals that can indicate underlying issues, which you can explore in more depth through specialised testing. Simple health and lifestyle changes may help you feel more like yourself.

How Does Biofeedback Help With Stress?

Stress is an all-too accepted part of modern life, and an illness you usually associate with the mind. But long-term stress has a deep and lasting effect on the physica lbody too. It’s all connected.


If you’re experiencing:


●    Tense neck and shoulders

●    Back pain

●    Regular colds and illness

●    Increased heart rate

●    IBS symptoms – diarrhoea,constipation, bloating, pain

●    Headaches or migraines


Then you may be dealing with the physical symptoms of stress.1


Stress is caused by your ‘fight or flight’ instincts. While this response exists to give you the best chance of escaping real danger, it can also be triggered by more everyday things. Your heart may beat faster when you get an email from your boss, or are late picking up the kids from school. Gradually, the stress can take over your life.


Any perceived threat triggers your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system responses in different ways.2 Your sympathetic branch leaps into action when there’s an immediate threat – getting you ready for fight or flight, by increasing blood flow and your awareness, and pumping you full of adrenaline. Your parasympathetic branch is normally in control during quiet, non-stressful periods, but pauses bodily functions that are not vital during a period of danger – which can be why you suffer with digestive issues when you’re particularly stressed.


Unfortunately,stress can cause a negative feedback loop in your body, where you’re only a hair-trigger away from your next stress response. This is down to your hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis, which releases adrenaline and cortisol in times of tension. But cortisol can continue to trigger your HPA axis – provoking a negative feedback loop, where you’re unable to come back down fully from fight-or-flight mode.3 This results in poor concentration, disrupted sleep, and often an altered appetite.


Resonance biofeedback can help you improve your response to stress. The harmless electrical signals you receive during your treatment help ‘nudge’ your body back on the right path. The biofeedback signals find the natural balance between your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system branches, helping you to ease out of your over-alert state. Clients often report being able to relax and sleep better, less time spent on the toilet, and a renewed sense of energy. Clients with other underlying issues are able to continue on their health journey with improved energy and commitment.

What Happens During a Biofeedback Session?

To experience resonance biofeedback, you have straps placed around your forehead, wrists, and ankles. These are attached to a computer that your therapist uses to monitor the session. There is nothing invasive or painful about the appointment, and you don’t have to wear any specific clothes, or take special precautions.


Resonance feedbackis different from heart rate variability (HRV) feedback in a few ways.


In an HRV session,you focus on the computer screen. You use your heart rate and other information, learning techniques that allow you to relieve the physical effects of stress, gaining control of your body.


In a resonance biofeedback session, there is nothing you need to focus on. You can relax for the time that you’re ‘wired up’ to the computer. It doesn’t take long. In fact, the majority of your appointment is spent analysing your results – and discussing your next steps.


Resonance biofeedback may detect deficiencies or imbalances that can be confirmed through lab testing. Together we can focus on making changes both big and small that can have a positive effect on your health and sense of wellbeing.
