Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Biofeedback allows you to gain control over your body’s responses to stress. It is an evidence-based treatment during which you are trained to improve your mental and physical health by using signals from your own body. HRV Biofeedback is scientifically proven to be an efficacious treatment for numerous health conditions and also a critical training process for peak performance. In fact, research shows that HRV Biofeedback improves reaction speed, emotional regulation, endurance, and resilience.
Research shows that enhanced modulation of the autonomic nervous system, as demonstrated by increased heart rate variability, is mirrored in the brain.
In particular, findings indicate that HRV training yields large fluctuations in vessel diameter and also increases the level of oxygenation in each brain region that are associated with improvements in mental clarity, focus, and cognitive flexibility (e.g. the ability to pivot from hyper-focus to letting go). This is consistent with clinical evidence that HRV biofeedback improves cognitive, emotional, and physical functioning.
WHAT DO HEART RATE VARIABILITY BIOFEEDBAK TRAINING SESSIONS INVOLVE?
We use state-of-the art equipment to train our clients to tighten their self-regulation and enhance their ability to respond effectively and efficiently under stress. Training can be short-term (ten weeks, meeting once per week, or ongoing depending on the needs of the client. We also implement optimal health and performance protocol to help individuals physiologically prepare for stressful situations, reduce cardiovascular reactivity during challenge, and recover more quickly from stress. Following the biofeedback training, many clients retain their skills for life with only occasional refreshers.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
To help you cultivate and efficient and effective plan for achieving your goals, your initial meeting begins with a 60-minute assessment. In the last 10 minutes of this meeting, will provide you with recommendations to address your unique background and specific performance goals. During the process we will monitor your movement towards your goals on a regular basis. Further, we will fine-tune your sessions to meet your dynamic and evolving needs.
3 Step Assessment is a quick tool to evaluate how your cardiovascular system adjusts to changes in position and breathing patterns. HRV is greatly influenced by the interplay between the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. Specifically, the SNS (sympathetic nervous system) is in charge of the stress response, and prepares the body for fight or flight by accelerating bodily functions, while the PNS (parasympathetic nervous system) is primarily involved in relaxation, preparing the body to rest and recover after the stressful situation is over. The 3 steps of the assessment take you through state changes which should influence the balance between SNS and PNS dominance.
Based on your 3 Step HRV Assessment, your clinical team will let you know what we have found and will recommend the best customized treatment plan for you.
Different kinds of biofeedback training are available depending on goals and history. Your clinician will design a personalized biofeedback program for you depending on your needs.
