Biofeedback: What Works

Following are summaries of a few well-designed, representative studies:

  • In a review of studies by Dr. Jeanne Achterberg for the NIH in 1992, biofeedback was found to be efficacious for over 150 conditions.

  • During a 1996 study by Dr. Angel McGrady of the Medical College of Ohio, patients with insulin-dependent diabetes were able to improve blood sugar stability.

  • From a 1997 study by Nakao in Japan, hypertension patients using biofeedback learned to reduce stress-related increases in blood pressure.

  • Following a fifteen-month study of asthmatics by Dr. Erik Peper and colleagues at San Francisco State University, biofeedback patients suffered fewer attacks and used less medicine.
