With the aid of feedback on skin conductivity the client learns to consciously control the habitual level of arousal and the level of sympathetic nervous system activity.
Internal tension results in increased activity of the sweat glands and hence in a higher skin conductance level (electrodermal activity or EDA). When the arousal level changes, the skin conductance reaction occurs almost immediately (within 0.6 – 6.0 seconds). It is therefore an excellent indicator of the relationship between physical and emotional processes.
In EDA relaxation exercises you can choose between the following types of feedback:
MULTI-P, MULTI-S2 or SC-S
