For more than 25 years, HeartMath Institute has been researching the heart-brain neural connection and learning how the heart influences our perceptions, emotions, behavior, thoughts and health.
Heart Math provides vital tools to help individuals increase coherence - a synchronization between the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and heart rate variability (HRV). By increasing coherence within the body, one is able to respond to situations more effectively decrease stress hormones and increase vitality hormones - like DHEA -thus, increasing quality of life.
Heart Math allows you to tap into the power, performance and intelligence of your heart – which awakens you to the best version of yourself.
More About Heart Math:
HeartMath researchers demonstrated that different heart rhythm patterns accompany different emotional states and have distinct effects on cognitive function. During depleting emotions (i.e. stress and anxiety), when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive functions.
This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. This helps explain why we may often act impulsively and unwisely when we’re under stress. The heart sends incoherent rhythmic patterns to the brain during stress and anxiety that can have a profound effect on the brain’s emotional processes, actually serving to reinforce the emotional experience of stress and anxiety.
In contrast, the more ordered and stable pattern of the heart’s coherent rhythmic input to the brain during positive emotional states, like love, appreciation, care, compassion, calm and ease, has the opposite effect: It facilitates cognitive functions and reinforces positive attitudes, emotional stability, and perceptual clarity.
This means that generating increased heart rhythm coherence and learning how to shift into and sustain positive emotional states not only benefits the entire body, but also profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform.
Times have changed with the stepped-up stress going on. There is a global epidemic of adult, teen, and child anxiety during these times of increasing uncertainty. HeartMath tools, techniques, and technology are designed for stress and anxiety relief and can be used alone or as an adjunct to other approaches. They engage the heart’s intelligence system to help you transform stress and anxiety into inner balance and self-security.
More people are sensing that the heart has to be involved for positive change personally, socially, and globally. Learning to connect with the heart can be added to any self-help or therapeutic system to increase its effectiveness. The heart can be added to cognitive behavioral therapy, taking medication, meditation, mindfulness, and other practices for managing stress and anxiety. It’s not competitive. It’s complementary.
What Our Clients Say
Edward G | Sacramento, CA
This training was well researched, backed by Peer-Reviewed Studies, presented in a highly professional manner. Havilande is an expert Heart Math trainer who was able to address a wide range of questions. I really liked that they all practice what they teach and find myself utilizing the Heart Math tools everyday. Definitely a game changer! My company plans on implementing this training next month through Havilande.
