Biofeedback: The Healing Power of Touch & Body Awareness by Allison Peacock
Biofeedback sounds complicated, but it’s just a fancy way of saying “body awareness.” You may be able to alleviate pain and melt away stress with a simple touch. Next time you’re stuck in traffic or about to unload your worries on a friend, try it.
- Simply put a palm on either your heart or your belly – whichever feels the most tense.
- Feel the connection and breathe.
Where you touch can’t help but grab your awareness. Moving your attention back to your body takes it away from the continuous loop of your mind and its frustrations. We all know a mother’s touch is healing – use it on yourself!
