“It’s a brand new technique that’s about 2,500 years old,” joked Richard Gevirtz, PhD, Alliant Professor of Health Psychology at CSPP. “Yogis and swamis used these same methods when they wanted to be calm and stress-free. We started using biofeedback techniques about 20 years ago with clinical equipment that measures heart rate and respiration as a feedback modality. We had patients try to maximize the valleys and peaks of their heart rate using a slow breathing technique. We used biofeedback clinically with disorders that we thought were stress-related — like headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia and pain — and we have had some remarkable successes.”
