When we are in a state of cohesion our autonomic nervous system, sympathetic, and parasympathetic are calm and working in cohesion. In a state of high cohesion we feel relaxed and centered, as opposed to frazzled and scattered, and can more easily express as we want to. Heartmath technology is designed to teach people to become more in tune with their inner states and to quickly and effectively shift them.
Question: What is HeartMath?
Answer: HeartMath is a unique system of rigorous scientific research, validated techniques, leading-edge products and programs and advanced technologies for people interested in personal development and improved emotional, mental and physical health. HeartMath is internationally recognized for practical solutions that can transform the stress of change and uncertainty and build people’s heart coherence and energy reserves.
Question: What is meant by personal coherence?
Answer: Personal coherence, also known as psychophysiological coherence, refers to the synchronization of our physical, mental and emotional systems. It can be measured by our heart-rhythm patterns: The more balanced and smooth they are, the more in sync, or coherent we are. Stress levels recede, energy levels increase and our brain and what HeartMath calls the “heart brain” work together. It is a state of optimal clarity, perception and performance. HeartMath tools and technology have been scientifically proven to help us achieve personal coherence.
Question: How does HeartMath view breathing in the stress-reduction process?
Answer: Although rhythmic breathing exercises can help control your heart rate and have a calming effect on the body, also shifting your attitudes and emotions can achieve much more. Research shows the key to neutralizing and countering the effects of stress is actively adding a positive feeling such as appreciation, care or compassion to the process. Experiencing positive emotions has a much broader range of potential health and wellness benefits than rhythmic breathing alone. Generating a positive feeling adds a dynamic element to stress management. Using the breathing pacer found in the emWave® technology in conjunction with positive emotions helps synchronize your nervous system and create positive changes in your heart-rhythm patterns – ultimately building and sustaining coherence and reducing stress.
