BIOFEEDBACK 

The biofeedback computer program (“Relaxing Rhythms”) monitors physical and/or emotional responses to stress and helps individuals learn how to manage these through breathing and meditation exercises. The program displays the user’s responses to activities and provides real-time feedback. Users are also guided through strategies to identify and change thoughts/feelings that trigger the physiological symptoms of stress. Biofeedback may also be employed to combat panic attacks and insomnia, however, it is not a substitute for counseling.

There are two biofeedback stations available in the Group Room. Users don’t need to be clients to use the biofeedback program. Faculty/staff are also welcome to use the biofeedback stations. The program is offered on a first-come-first-served basis with sign-in and sign-out at the front desk during each visit. Individuals may utilize the program as regularly and for as long as availability permits.

  • Contracts
