Author(s): Eleftheria Zafeiri, Vasileios Dedes, Sofia Zyga, Agapi Kandylaki and Georgios Panoutsopoulos

Abstract: Biofeedback treatment is among the methods proposed to prevent and treat many organic and mental problems. Many experts carry out biofeedback application since it is applied by psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, social workers, nurses, and physiotherapists. Biofeedback is a non-invasive, natural method that does not require drugs, although it can be used along with medicines. It is based on the learning and training of individuals on their body’s normal functions such as muscle pain, brain waves, heart rate, pain perception, skin conductivity, and blood pressure. It is often used to treat stress, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, tension, urinary incontinence, muscle aches, and other problems. It can be applied in conjunction with other therapies when necessary, such as psychotherapy, meditation, or other alternative therapies. It has many applications with no side effects, does not create dependencies, and can be interrupted at any time.
