Biofeedback
According to an article by Bette Runck of the National Institute of Mental Health  Biofeedback “is a treatment technique in which people are trained to improve their health by using signals from their own bodies.” For example a physical therapist may use biofeedback to help stroke victims regain movement in paralyzed muscles. Biofeedback treatment has been proven to alleviate pain and stress. Nobody can explain just how biofeedback works but most patients benefit frombiofeedback by learning to relax and modify their behavior. It is believed that relaxation is a key component in biofeedback treatment of many disorders, particularly those brought on or made worse by stress.
