Watching our patients breathe, not just with our monitors, but with our eyes and our intuition, will help us learn their natural rhythm. Finding out how our patient takes a cleansing breath when they are in pain, frustrated, angry or over excited will give us even more informa- tion. As a Biofeedback Therapist and Registered Nurse I am a firm believer in teaching the anatomy and physiology of the autonomic nervous systems balance and of the im- portance of diaphragmatic breathing in the initiation of our relaxation response and the importance of being a diaphragmatic breather no matter what we are doing.When we help our patients create & find a natural effortless breathing rhythm then skin tem- perature raises, skin conductance lowers, muscle tension decreases and heart rate finds its resonance frequency rhythm. It should be the base that we build all our biofeedback training on. Biography: Linda MacKenzie, RN, BCB has passion for Biofeedback and Integra- tive Healthcare. Linda teaches her patients self-regulation skills in the art of relaxation, mindfulness & resonance frequency. Because illness, its treatment, & life in general can create stress and anxiety in all areas of our lives, her biofeedback training can help create a calmer and more balanced lifestyle. A large portion of Linda’s patients are referred through the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center in Truckee, CA. She is part of the Patient Family and Care- giver Program, which offers multiple integrative modalities to all cancer center patients free through philanthropy donations. The other portions of Linda’s patients are referrals from local physicians for chronic pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, stress reduction & sports performance. She is part of Tahoe Forest Hospital’s Tahoe WoRx program that allows employees to use there an- nual wellness dollars for Biofeedback. Linda received her RN degree from El Camino College in Torrance, CA in 1981 and has been a Certified Biofeedback Therapist through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance since 2002. When Linda is not training her Biofeedback patients you can find her working labor & delivery birthing mountain babies, teaching baby massage to new parents or just en- joying the blue sky, big trees and clear water of Tahoe.
