MONTREAL, June 3, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Thought Technology Ltd. is offering a free webinar series designed to highlight various applications of biofeedback. In the next installment, Dr. Inna Khazan will discuss the benefits of using mindfulness techniques with biofeedback. Mindfulness is a practice whereby individuals learn to bring their attention to the feelings, thoughts, and emotions they are having in the present moment and to respond to those feelings differently, rather than trying to stop having them. Mindfulness enables one to pause long enough to make a choice of response.
Heart rate variability biofeedback is an effective treatment for numerous psychophysiological disorders.

In this webinar, we will discuss the concepts of mindfulness and self-compassion as they apply to heart rate variability and introduce practical ways to integrate heart rate variability biofeedback with mindfulness and self-compassion practices.
