    Hi Sheila...I worked with a nurse at Swedish Hospital in Seattle who taught me biofeedback. At the time, it was prescribed to help me control my migraines. They are a little better, but I still use it, especially when I am somewhere where I can't move, walk, or do anything to control the pain (like on an airplane).

    She hooked my fingers up to a computer, took my body's temperature, and then taught me how to raise the temperature in my hands. This diverts the blood away from your head, helping with the migraines. It is amazing and you can really see how it works on the computer! I would recommend it.

    For me it is not a cure, just another tool in my bag. Good luck! Ann
