BIOFEEDBACK: Biofeedback is a self-guided interactive computer program which is used to manage mood and stress reactions by teaching you how to change your body's physical responses. Biofeedback is used as a tool for managing our body's response to many challenges such as symptoms of stress, anxiety, ADHD, headaches, IBS, depression, test/performance anxiety, and many more.
How do I get started? To use EKUCC’s self-guided biofeedback program, you must first attend a Biofeedback Orientation.
- Option 1: Attend the Feel Better Fast Workshop on Biofeedback ("Controlled Calm"). This is a drop-in group, so you may simply show up on the date/time of the meeting (see our group schedule link). You may also sign up for this ahead of time by coming into our office or calling us at 859-622-1303.
- Option 2: Complete an Initial Assessment appointment and request biofeedback services. You may then be scheduled for a biofeedback orientation with one of our clinicians. If you are already an ongoing client at EKUCC, tell your clinician you are interested in a Biofeedback Orientation.
- After completing a Biofeedback Orientation, self-guided biofeedback can be used during EKUCC normal business hours, 8-4:30pm. The Biofeedback Room will close at 4:30pm therefore arrive by 4pm to have time to use the equipment.
- Come into the EKUCC, turn in your student ID to borrow the biofeedback equipment and you will be directed to one of the 7 available computer stations in the EKUCC Biofeedback Room.
