What is HeartMath?

HeartMath was founded by Doc Childre in 1991 to help individuals, organizations and the global community incorporate the heart’s intelligence into their day-to-day experience of life. HeartMath does this by connecting heart and science in ways that empower people to greatly reduce stress, build resilience, and unlock their natural intuitive guidance for making better choices. The emWave® educational technology and the tools and techniques of the HeartMath system are based on over 19 years of scientific research on the psychophysiology of stress, emotions, and the interactions between the heart and brain.

Resilience

Resilience is the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge or adversity. HeartMath's research based tools and techniques help build this capacity over the four domains of resilience: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. 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 travelling 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, the more ordered and stable pattern of the heart’s input to the brain during positive emotional states has the opposite effect - it facilitates cognitive function and reinforces positive feelings and emotional stability. This means that learning to generate increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, not only benefits the entire body, but also profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform. See the videos I have created at the bottom of this page for a demonstration of the Quick Coherence Technique.

Transforming Stress Revitalising Care Programme

I offer the TSRC programme independently or with the assistance of my brother, Matt through our Flowing Intelligence workshops. The programme is taught either in a one or two day seminar or in a series of one to four hour long sequential seminars. It can also be tailored to individual, group or organisations needs.

 

You will be guided and taken into learning about the experiments that HeartMath performed in order to test the validity of ‘Why living in the heart’ is so important. No matter the type of job you perform the resilience advantage training is for all of those who wish to really be successful and fully efficient if their lives.

 

The program is designed to teach you different techniques to help you move to the Heart and live from that space. The program will explain to you how the heart is directly connected to the brain through neurological, hormonal and electromagnetic circulatory systems that constantly influence not only physiology but also cognitive function, decision making, relationships, and performance. Becoming aware of the true functions of the intelligence and logic of the heart will open a new reality for your life. The techniques of HeartMath will allow you to quickly move to the heart and facilitate more ease, joy, intelligence and lightness in your everyday activities.

 

The workshop is also designed to share with you an opportunity to connect with the HeartMath biofeedback technology. The technology reads the pattern of your heart beats in real time and provides feedback in relation to your underlying physiology and emotional patterns. The biofeedback technology can provide motivation to continue to apply the techniques in your daily life so you can reduce energy depletion or burn out and create resilience.

One to one coaching:

As part of an individual consultation you will have the opportunity to experiment with Heartmath biofeedback technology under my guidance. You will be able to see your baseline level of heart rate variability (HRV), practice Heartmath tools and techniques and watch for improvement in HRV.

 

As a Heartmath coach I get a 20 percent discount on all products from Heartmath UK so if you wish to invest in any technology you can avail of this discount through me. I can also train you how to get the most from the emWave and Inner Balance feedback technologies.

 

With learning to integrate the HeartMath system of tools and techniques, including the award-winning emWave® technology, into your daily life you will:

 

- Achieve and sustain a greater overall sense of well-being,

 

- Increase your mental clarity and feel better,

 

- Enhance your performance,

 

- Improve your health and resilience,

 

- Create more satisfying relationships and,

 

- Effectively reduce your stress.
