An Overview of Quantum Biofeedback
The EPFX - Quantum Biofeedback System, the latest and most up-to-date technology, takes a multitude of different stress reduction programs, methods, and techniques, and merges them into a more simple - best overall - well-rounded approach.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Quantum Biofeedback, working through sixteen different electrical factors of the body, calculates combinations of impedance, amperage, voltage, capacitance, inductance, and resistance for Electro-Physiological Reactivity (The Xrroid Process). The body is indeed electric; therefore reactivity in the body can be measured electrically.
The techniques and methods of Quantum Biofeedback stress reduction include addressing areas those most typically affected by the stressors of "everyday living". Some examples of these methods and areas are the:
WHO USES QUANTUM BIOFEEDBACK? EPFX devices are being used worldwide by Doctors, Kinesiologists, Dentists, Veterinarians, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Homoeopaths, Acupuncturists, Nutritionists, Psychologists, Hypnotherapists, Massage Therapists, and many other professional practitioners. In addition, many people from all walks of life own and use Quantum Biofeedback Systems, depending on their own personal or professional needs.
WHAT IS STRESS?
Most people who lead busy lives don't have to ask that question, but here are a few definitions:
• Stress is defined as a nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it which results in symptoms such as a rise in the blood pressure, a release of hormones, quickness of breath, tightening of muscles, perspiration, and increased cardiac activity.
Stress is not necessarily negative. Some stress keeps us motivated and alert, while too little stress can create problems.
However, too much stress can trigger problems with mental and physical health, particularly over a prolonged period of time.
• Any experience that taxes an individual's energy or well-being; stress may be physical, mental, or emotional.
• Tension (Psychology): a state of mental or emotional strain or suspense; "he suffered from fatigue and emotional tension"; "stress is a vasoconstrictor".
• Physics: Force that produces strain on a physical body; "the intensity of stress is expressed in units of force divided by units of area".
• The mental or physical tension that results from physical, emotional, or chemical causes.
Another way to view BIOFEEDBACK
If you break down the word Biofeedback, the word Bio means 'life'. So Biofeedback is giving feedback about life. There is lots of biofeedback you use in everyday life. A mirror is Biofeedback. When you look in the mirror you get feedback about how your hair looks and your response may be to brush your hair. When we can see what something looks like, we can change it. Other biofeedback devices would be a scale or a thermometer. Similarly, when you use Biofeedback as a therapy, we show you what is going on in your 'life', and once you can see it we can train to change it to be in the most beneficial pattern possible. As we bring about change to these areas, we see a change in behaviors and an improvement in health and well being.
Biofeedback is what I like to call an 'umbrella' word. There are lots of different kinds of Biofeedback Therapies. A few of these would be muscle, temperature, sweat, heart, breathing, blood flow, and brain biofeedback (also called Neurofeedback). We can use devices to measure each of these areas of our lives and give feedback so that we can see it. With biofeedback therapy, we usually attach a device to the area we want to measure and then show what is happening on a computer screen. It is painless and usually involves a clip or a strap.
At Mind Works Wellness we use several different kinds of biofeedback therapies to bring about change. The device is attached to the area being measured and the feedback is displayed on the screen through graphs, pictures, and sounds. To begin with, we practice being able to control either the breath or heart rate or blood flow. Then, once the trainee learns to control, we can practice by using games, puzzle programs, and movies to make the training more interesting and fun.
WHAT MAY BE CONSIDER STRESS RELIEF:
Reducing stress is the key to well-being. Relaxation helps, but how do we know where stress may be hiding in the adapted or exhausted states physically, mentally, and emotionally. With the help of Quantum Biofeedback, we can painlessly and non-invasively look at reactions to common stressors and begin to piece the picture together. Most people find the Biofeedback experience relaxing, soothing and beneficial. The side effects of Biofeedback may include these possibilities (and much more that may be experienced). Stress has a huge impact on the body as a whole.
