What is HeartMath Therapy?
HeartMath Therapy is an intervention aimed to reduce stress and improve wellness through technology. As stress impacts health and chronic stress impacts health more dramatically, the goal is to control stress through HearthMath and, in doing so, assist with health-related problems such as heart disease, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, stroke, stomach problems and high blood pressure.
How is HeartMath performed?
HeartMath is performed using a small device called an emWave. The emWave is a small machine that looks like a tape deck (think back to the 1980s) with a strip of lights on the front surface. The device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand comfortably.
Connected to the emWave is a petite sensor that connects to either your finger or ear. Once connected and turned on, the sensor detects stress levels within the body by monitoring your breathing patterns and heart rate. The goal is to teach the body how to shift from a place a stress (or incoherence according to the HeartMath experts) to a place of appreciation and peace (or coherence according to the HeartMath experts) using the emWave device. With continued use, emWave sessions improve stress, work performance, learning, communication, sports performance, chronic pain, chronic fatigue and physical health.
