The field of Integrative Medicine has grown considerably over the last decade with patients and doctors alike who see benefits in a whole-person approach. Dr. Robert McCarthy incorporates the use of biofeedback as part of his Integrative Medicine approach. According to Dr. McCarthy, “The underlying philosophy of biofeedback is to basically return responsibility for one’s wellness back to the individual. This is done through increasing a patient’s awareness of stress and improving the ability to voluntarily control psychophysiology through use of visualization and imagery.
