Biofeedback is a technique that measures bodily functions such as heart rate, sweat gland activity and muscle contractions, then feeds this information back to you to help you increase your awareness of involuntary body responses and learn to consciously self-regulate. This can help you gain a level of relaxed awareness amidst chronic or acute stress.

UCSF offers biofeedback services for a variety of health problems. Our certified biofeedback practitioner can help you identify your own unique stress response and learn new skills to shift unhealthy patterns.
