Research on stress began in 1974 by Selye who reported more than 130,000 entries on stress. One of the major effects of homeostatic imbalance is stress which is believed to cause physical and mental disease (Langley, 1965). Psychosomatic medicine focuses on stress related disorders and treatment methods. Biofeedback's measurement and positive conditioning or producing changes in the body processes contributes to relieving stress (Miller, 1978).

The effects of relaxation have a major role in achieving biofeedback therapeutic effects.
