What happens right after the procedure?

Guided biofeedback may involve one-hour sessions weekly for 10 weeks. People first learn to use the instruments as an aid in altering responses. Then they learn how to apply this to everyday life, without the need for instruments and professional guidance. Success depends on a person's motivation to get and maintain the skills, and on how severe the medical condition is. Often the condition is not cured, but becomes easier to tolerate. It may be possible to use smaller amounts of medications. More costly medical treatments may be avoided. Most people feel that their lives are improved when they can participate in their own medical care.
