Reduce Stress With HeartMath®
HeartMath® is a world leader in providing scientifically-based stress reduction and emotional wellness programs. The HeartMath system engages the power of the heart to create the inner balance needed to lead a healthy and successful life through aligning heart, mind, body and spirit. When you learn how to intentionally engage and feel a positive emotion, your heart rhythms immediately change. A shift in heart rhythms creates a favorable cascade of neural, hormonal and biochemical events that benefit the entire body. The HeartMath system is a proven, natural approach for stress reduction. The Institute of HeartMath has researched techniques for managing stress for more than 15 years. By recognizing a stressful situation and taking a quick timeout using a simple HeartMath technique to shift your emotional attitude, you can change your physiology from a "fight-or-flight" stimulated state to one of calm. The result is a decrease in stress hormone production with a resultant decrease in blood pressure and heart rate.

emWave® PC Stress Relief System. Much more than a heart monitor, this revolutionary technology guides you on how to achieve higher, more creative energy levels, less stress, and optimal health. HeartMath research has shown that emotions are reflected in our heart rhythm patterns. The analysis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV), or heart rhythms, is recognized as a powerful, non-invasive measure that reflects heart-brain interactions and autonomic nervous system dynamics, which are particularly sensitive to changes in the emotional state. emWave PC is a software and hardware program which collects pulse data through an ear or finger sensor which plugs into your computer. The program translates the information from your heart rhythms into user friendly graphics displayed on your computer screen. With emWave PC, you learn to build a buffer against stress by accessing a high performance state called "coherence." Coherence is a mental and emotional state that people experience when they are "in-sync" or in the "zone"--when the heart, brain and nervous system are working in harmony. Simply stated, more coherence equals more energy and less wear and tear from stress. Available for sale at Age Defy Dermatology and Wellness - call for more information.
