Providence Treatment is pleased to announce its joint collaboration with Widener University’s Biofeedback Clinic, chaired by Dr. Pamela Calvert-Hirt, to provide psychophysiological interventions for common issues such as: attention, insomnia, stress, headaches and test anxiety to our professional clients. At Providence Treatment, we understand the stress and fatigue caused by a demanding professional career, and our treatment programs are specifically designed to career-driven individuals. Hence, we offer individualized interventions, including biofeedback that can help reduce stress, improve mindfulness meditation practices, athletic performance and improve overall health. This biofeedback service will be facilitated by post-doctoral clinician from Widener University at our outpatient facility.
What is biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a safe, noninvasive technique that teaches people how to monitor and control various body functions such as heart rate, muscle tension, blood pressure, and skin temperature.
How can biofeedback help me?
Research has shown that biofeedback is a clinically effective tool for children, adolescents, and adults who experience a variety of conditions, including: stress, pain, headaches and migraines, panic and anxiety disorders, sleep difficulties, TMJ and teeth grinding.
How does biofeedback work?
Biofeedback functions as a tool to assess and monitor dynamic physiological processes within the body. Electronic sensors are applied to specific areas of the body that correlate with stress responses such as muscle tension and skin temperature. This information is relayed to the therapist through auditory and visual cues. Ultimately, with help from the therapist, clients learn how to successfully detect and control the actions of the nervous system during and after periods of stress.
