The WHY of biofeedback has been incorporated into the Monday psycho-educational lecture. There has been a big response with workshop participants using the brain spa, mornings, evenings and during lunch breaks!
The Brain, Heart, Body connection at RIO:
- CES - Cranial Electro- Stimulation - the CES stimulates ALPHA WAVES, increases oxygen and blood flow to the brain
- HRC – Heart Rate Coherence - Reduces stress, Develops self-awareness of internal reactions
- Chi Machine most beneficial to the heart and lungs. Increase lymphatic flow and improves the immune system.
WHY? These machines support a positive feedback loop between positive emotions and good physical health.
We need to teach ourselves how our brains and bodies work; being in control of ourselves requires becoming familiar with our inner world and accurately identifying what scares, upsets, or delights us.
"You can be fully in charge of your life only if you can acknowledge the reality of your body, in all its visceral dimensions.”
