Transform Your Stress and Create Better Health and Resilience
HeartMath helps you tap into the power and intelligence of your heart – your heart’s intuition – which awakens you to the best version of yourself. Science demonstrates that we can train our autonomic nervous system to support our well-being. Evidence-based techniques and technology provide objective and measurable ways to see improvements in physiological and behavioral functioning.
Shift from stress, dysregulation and incoherence to self-regulation, coherence and resilience.
From Stress to Coherence
It is not the event or situation that creates the stress, it is how we respond to it. Emotions have a powerful impact on the human body. Positive emotions like appreciation, care and kindness feel good and are good for us. They help the systems in our body synchronize and work better.
Accumulated stress is often the underlying cause of common challenges, such as anxiety, anger, depression, lack of sleep, illness, and more. Activating coherence helps you prevent and relieve stress and anxiety while balancing your mental and emotional energy — which connects you with your higher creative potentials.
Research has shown when we intentionally shift to a positive emotion, the heart rhythms immediately change. This shift in heart rhythms creates a favorable cascade of neural, hormonal and biochemical events that benefit the entire body.

The Heart-Brain Connection
When we are stressed, the body is out of sync. The depleting emotions we feel, like anger, frustration, anxiety and worry, lead to disorder in the nervous system. 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, 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. Renewing emotions like appreciation, care and kindness create order, which is called coherence. Coherence leads to mental clarity, creativity, and resiliency.
How it works
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.
You will learn how to reduce your stress and anxiety, develop self-regulation skills and build mental and emotional resilience. You can increase your internal awareness and develop more self-empowerment skills to achieve the health you want.
The HeartMath Institute’s research has shown that generating sustained positive emotions facilitates a body-wide shift to a specific, scientifically measurable state.
Studies conducted with over 11,500* people have shown improvements in mental & emotional well-being in just 6-9 weeks using HeartMath training and technology.
24% improvement in the ability to focus
30% improvement in sleep
38% improvement in calmness
46% drop in anxiety
48% drop in fatigue
56% drop in depression
