You’ll need the help of a licensed biofeedback technician to learn this technique. With the help of special machines that give you instant feedback on the state of your body, you can learn to control certain body functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension. Biofeedback is sometimes used to help people learn to relax and cope with pain. This technique is usually used with other pain-relief methods.
