Abstract: Biofeedback therapy has been popular for a long time in treating problems like stress and tension type headache (TTH). TTH is very common in our life, if it appears frequently and with increased frequency then it is called as 'distress'. Present paper is the results of the conclusions of two therapies on EMG and GSR on audio, visual and audio-visual mode for TTH. It was conducted for 12 months. Physical, mental and total score were calculated in this experiment. Authors have tried best to verify which therapy is more efficient in audio-visual modes of EMG and GSR comparison among different scores. No doubt the SF-36 score and related questionnaire form is much popular and so the organisations with the trust for medical outcomes, quality metric designing, lab for assessing the health standards, and incorporation of Optum, have prepared the similar policies for usage of SF36 data globally.
