Stress Profiling

Stress Profiling

The stress profile is a standardized psychophysiological biofeedback diagnosis for determining the physiological level of arousal and for measuring the responsiveness, relaxation, and resilience of a patient. The Mind&Body Performance Center of the Institute for Neurofeedback and Biofeedback (I-NFBF) uses the data from Harvard Medical School and Dr. Inna Khazan who developed a method with normative values. In the Harvard stress profile, tasks that cause stress (e.g. mental arithmetic) alternate with relaxation phases. Several physiological parameters are derived simultaneously and reactions from the autonomic nervous system are measured and their course is shown graphically and statistically. Biofeedback therapists who are specially trained in stress profiling can analyze the results of their patient's stress profile, pinpoint the patient's strengths and weaknesses and plan an individual treatment program for their patients, which serves to strengthen the identified personal weaknesses and stabilize individual resources.

The client defines and develops his/her therapy goals together with the therapist. The basis for this road map build the results of:

  • the patient's or peak performance client's medical history,
  • his/her stress profile, his/her quantitative electroencephalogram,
  • and his/her self-assessment based partially on questionnaires
