Alternative holistic therapies including biofeedback to help improve physical and emotional well being

Biofeedback Therapy Offered by WhiteSands

Biofeedback is a procedure in which biological information is measured from the body of a client and then presented (“fed back”) to them, in order for the client to learn to get better control over it. Biofeedback therapies at White Sands are designed to improve a client’s physical and emotional well-being and ability to manage pain. This is especially important for those whose chronic pain created an addiction to painkillers, so that they can successfully withdraw from these drugs.

Treatments are individualized to the needs of individual clients, and incorporate behavioral therapy with traditional and newer forms of biofeedback treatments, including:

EMG: electromyograph that uses electrodes to detect muscle action

Feedback thermometer: detects skin temperature

Respiratory: measures breathing patterns

GSR: galvanic skin response that monitors tension-related changes in skin pores

Heart Rate Variability: measures the changes in heartbeats

Peak Performance Training: to help recover and optimize function and
behavioral performance

Neurofeedback: also called neurotherapy, uses EEG displays to illustrate brain activity
and teach self-regulation.

Biofeedback therapy is effective in treating a variety of conditions that can contribute to an addiction, including anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), depression, chronic muscle pain, migraines, sleep disturbances and more.
