Newswise -- Denver, CO, February 9, 2011: The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance, formerly the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA), has filed applications to trademark terms that refer to Board certification in biofeedback. BCIA certifies professionals in Biofeedback, Neurofeedback, and Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction Biofeedback. Health care is regulated by state licensing boards; however, biofeedback is not a regulated modality. The goal is to have a recognizable credential that consumers, the health care industry, and professionals can use as a mark of excellence in the delivery of clinical services.

Additionally, the logos which refer to BCIA and to each specific program are trademarked and all certificants are encouraged to use the logo and the new terminology to refer to their certification.

BCB is Board Certified in Biofeedback.

BCN is Board Certified in Neurofeedback.

BCB-PMD is Board Certified in Biofeedback for Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction.

"We realize that recognition of the credential is not an overnight process," remarked BCIA Board Chair, Fred Shaffer, PhD, BCB. "Our intent is to continue to set the standards of education and training and to provide a credential that will be recognized worldwide as criteria for selecting a provider."

BCIA was formed as a non-profit organization in 1981 to establish and maintain professional standards for the provision of biofeedback services and to certify those who meet these standards. BCIA certification is the international gold standard for the selection of qualified biofeedback and neurofeedback professionals. Visit for more information.
