MONTREAL (PRWEB) May 07, 2020
In an ongoing webinar series presented by Thought Technology Ltd., experts from various fields discuss how they are using biofeedback with their clients. The next installment focuses on heart rate variability biofeedback. Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the interval between consecutive heartbeats. Higher heart rate variability is correlated with better health and survival from illness.
On May 11, 2020, Dr. Richard Gevirtz will discuss the physiological basis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV), its measurement, and epidemiology. This is the needed background for understanding the biofeedback technique known as HRV Biofeedback (HRVB) or Resonance Frequency Biofeedback. He will discuss, in detail, the protocol developed by Lehrer, Vaschillo, and Gevirtz. This involves finding resonance frequency, encouraging home training, and application to the presenting problem. Issues with compliance, home training, and respiration are discussed. Various applications will be covered based on the interest of the audience. (Pain, IBS, Anxiety, Trauma, Dysautonomia, etc.)
