A ground-breaking work, already being used in Universities as a course textbook. An in-depth, illustrated overview of biofeedback and its specific applications from a somatic perspective.From back cover:
Biofeedback is simply the feeding back of a biological signal to you, the producer of the signal. The biological signals are recorded by computerized biofeedback systems. Through the information provided, you become able to change your physiological state in a desired direction. With that information you can manage stress, medical and psychological complaints, and enhance performance in a variety of arenas.
Somatics is the term, coined by Thomas Hanna, used to describe the mind/body disciplines. These are non–instrument interventions that you can add to the repertoire of practices that you use personally and professionally. You can use these skills for your personal evaluation.
This book provides a foundation for understanding biofeedback and somatics and offers suggestions for designing programs for yourself and others.
