What is EPR biofeedback?
EPR biofeedback is a therapy that uses electric frequency to help your body heal itself. It reduces both mental and physical stress, and brings your systems into balance.
You will sit fully-clothed in a comfortable anti-gravity recliner in our treatment room. We use low lighting, music, and essential oils for a soothing, spa-like experience. We place bands around your head, ankles, and wrists. These straps have electrodes that use electrical impulses to communicate with your body. The process is non-invasive, gentle, and deeply relaxing.
The Biofeedback System is a class II, FDA registered medical device. It scans and gathers data from each of your body's systems in a fraction of a second. It can screen over 11,000 subtle stress-related areas in your body in only 3-4 minutes. The device then provides the technician with a report on areas that are out of whack. Next, we use the device to retrain and balance those areas using electromagnetism.
Think of this process in its most simplest form: frequency and energy. We all know about frequency. If you listen to the radio, use a cell phone, watch TV, or speak, then you are using frequency. Since we are electrical, energy or frequency has an effect on us.
Will I feel anything during the session?
That will depend on you as an individual. Some are sensitive to frequency and feel a variety of mild sensations. Many feel nothing during the session but notice a shift after. This could be less pain or stress, a burst of energy, a feeling of calm and relaxation, or an overall sense of well being. Every body is different and every session can be different depending on your needs.
How long is a session?
Your first session will be about 90 minutes. Sessions thereafter can take anywhere from 60 to 75 minutes. Most people fall asleep during their session, and are very surprised when it's over!
How many sessions will I need?
It varies from person to person. Natural healing can take time and biofeedback is a subtle energy. It can often take anywhere from 5 to 10 visits to get the body to repair. You may notice slight changes in your health or emotional state after one session. Other situations need longer to rectify. With each visit, the energy holds longer, obtaining more visible and long term results.
Your healing depends on many factors, including the length and intensity of your condition. Your willingness to follow the recommended protocol affects healing as well. Be assured that healing is occurring on a cellular level, even though you may not consciously feel it.
Once your body has returned to a balanced state, sessions can be done as needed for maintenance.
Is this covered by my health insurance?
Some Insurance companies will cover this under Biofeedback or ElectroAcupuncture. We can provide you a “Super Bill” designed for your insurance company with CPT codes. The insurance company may only count it towards your deductible. Many clients use their Health Savings account credit cards with no problems.
