HeartMath was founded in 1991. Since 1995, the HeartMath® Institute has conducted cutting-edge research on stress, emotional responses, heart-brain interactions, the physiology of learning, and optimal performance. Through this research, HeartMath offers an effective and non-invasive way to improve emotional and physiological health. In addition, HeartMath continues to develop accurate and highly sensitive technology for heart rate variability training. Research demonstrates that the messages the heart sends to the brain can profoundly influence perception, behavior, performance, and health. Through the use of heart rate variability biofeedback, in addition to HeartMath’s unique techniques, the heart-brain interactions can be controlled and changed for the benefit of the user. As a result, HeartMath has been scientifically proven to improve focus, attention, sleep, energy, long-term and short-term memory, and the ability to regulate our physiology. It assists in a decrease of anxiety, depression and fatigue symptoms. HeartMath is supported by over 300 peer-reviewed, independent, and published studies.
HeartMath technology allows an in real-time look into the autonomic nervous system. Clients are able to tune into their sympathetic or ‘fight or flight’ and parasympathetic or ‘rest and digest’ responses. This immediate feedback provides an understanding of how our individual nervous system is shifting from moment-to-moment. By tuning into these subtle processes, clients are able to take charge of and quickly regulate their physiology.
