A technique for controlling biological processes by using machines that gather body measurements and biological information from patients while simultaneously feeding it back to them in a form they can either see or hear. The subject first learns to identify the signal and then, through trial and error, how to control the function that triggers it.
Interest in biofeedback has increased and decreased since its start in the 1960s; at the beginning of the 21st century it is undergoing something of a renaissance, which some attribute to the general upswing of interest in alternative medicine methods.
Biofeedback proponents describe it as "using your mind to improve your health," a type of complementary and alternative medicine mind-body therapy. By using feedback from a variety of monitoring procedures and equipment, a biofeedback specialist will try to teach you to control certain involuntary body responses.

Occultopedia is the genuine article, the original and the best internet index of the extraordinary and uncanny, shamelessly copied by many, but never equaled. Online since 1995 — at first in a free web space provider (Tripod.com), and in 1997 finally with its own domain name and hosting — Occultopedia still is the principal online resource for those looking for the unexplained, the curious and the unusual.
