Understanding Biofeedback and Neurofeedback

Jeff explains to us the difference between biofeedback and neurofeedback. He explains how they are both of great help and can significantly improve the lives of those dealing with ADHD and anxiety in particular. Biofeedback is about your physiological responses, heart rate, body temperature, etc. and neurofeedback delivers information about your brainwave activity. These treatments can be used in conjunction with one another to help manage and improve symptoms.
