Biofeedback is a modern way of learning about ourselves. It’s principle is a cognitive process of learning to be aware of and to regulate the psycho-physiological functions through monitoring their signals in a real time.
Biofeedback goes beyond monitoring of your psycho-physiological functions during relaxation, learning, therapy or meditation. It is like a mirror reflecting your inner states, making a profound learning shortcut – the same as mirror is helping you to style yourself.
Expressed in other words: while doing biofeedback we “feed back” our own body “bio-signals” like heart rate, skin resistance (GRS/SC), EEG or temperature etc. in a for us perceptible way.
Sensitive electronic instruments measure changes expressed by our body in form of electrical potentials or other measurable parameters. These signals are being amplified and then evaluated, mostly by a computer program, and the results are shown as audiovisual stimuli.
Especially VERIM® ProNet takes the advantages of group psychointeractivity and telecoaching and has found its place in sports, education and mental training.
We can learn to use the energy of the brain very effectively and not to waste it in unnecessary stress. When we become aware of how the connection of thoughts, emotions and our stress level work together we can also learn to regulate this fine network and tune it to our specific goals like learning, relaxation or even activation.
In our turbulent times it is more and more of advantage to be skillful in “stress-energy management”. Why dissipate much of our mind’s energy instead of using it in a constructive way? In this sense focus means the centering, concentration of the mental energy and relaxation is an open state enabling minimum “power consumption” and self-regeneration.
