“HeartMath technology is an innovative approach to improving emotional wellbeing. Learn to change your heart rhythm pattern to create physiological coherence; a scientifically measurable state characterized by increased order and harmony in our mind, emotions and body. Getting into coherence makes you feel balanced, alive and well!”
I am a Dr. of Chinese medicine, health coach, and educator excited to now offer evidence – based strategies and techniques that have been validated to be effective over time.
My heart math individual trainings and workshops focus on transforming the vitality of the organization through innovative resilience building tools and technologies.
Learning the self-regulation and emotional management techniques is a new skill, like diet or exercise, and needs to become a daily practice. One of the best ways to ensure daily practice is to also have a device to practice with, make it a fun game!
I offer several tools such as a HeartMath Blue tooth or lightning sensor that reads the level of stress or coherence you are at! Practicing with a device develops increased internal awareness. Because of the focus on physiology, participants start to notice when they get angry, anxious or upset.
They also notice when they start to experience tension or tightness in the body. Seeing the level change on a device and hearing tones associated, give the body and brain biofeedback to learn to retrain quickly out of stress and build Resilience!
Change stress patterns forever!
HeartMath research has demonstrated that different patterns of heart activity (which accompany different emotional states) have distinct effects on cognitive and emotional function. During stress and negative emotions, 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’s input to the brain during stressful or negative emotions also has a profound effect on the brain’s emotional processes—actually serving to reinforce the emotional experience of stress.
In contrast, positive emotional states create a more ordered and stable pattern between the heart and the brain. This facilitates cognitive function and reinforces positive feelings and emotional stability. This means that learning to generate increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, benefits the entire body and profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform.
Sensors that show your wave patterns of stress and coherence are available for purchase at Blue Heron Center.
