HeartMath® is a comprehensive approach to reducing stress and creating better health. When you're stressed your body is out of sync. Typical negative emotions we feel when stressed, such as anger, frustration, anxiety, and worry lead to increased disorder in the heart's rhythms and in the nervous system. However, when we intentionally shift to a positive emotion, heart rhythms immediately change as well. This shift in heart rhythms creates a favorable cascade of neural, hormonal, and biochemical events that benefit the entire body. The effects are both immediate and long lasting.
Utilizing Freeze-Framer® technology you see your heart rhythm patterns in real time on a computer screen. As you move towards a more positive emotional state, you're able to see changes in your heart rhythm patterns. By correlating the patterns on the screen with a calm internal feeling you're able to establish greater control of your emotions, which helps reduce the physiological and psychological effects of stress.
Regular use of the HeartMath® system has resulted in significant stress reduction benefits in people with ADD/ADHD, anger, anxiety and panic disorders, arrhythmias, asthma, chronic fatigue, depression, diabetes, digestive disorders, hypertension, and sleep disorders. The HeartMath Stress Management System is particularly effective in managing pain.
