How emWave Reduces Stress and Creates Coherence

EmWave Technology will help you reduce the negative effects of stress, allowing you to experience greater health, more energy, and improved emotional balance and mental clarity. The "em" in emWave stands for empowerment : emWave empowers you to shift your emotional state and experience stress relief.

This scientifically validated technology was developed by Doc Childre, founder of the Institute of HeartMath and CEO of Quantum Intech, and a team of top scientists and engineers, using the Institute's 15 years of innovative research on the relationship between the heart, stress and emotions. The former version of emWave, the Freeze-Framer® Interactive Learning System (HeartMath's award winning product for PC) has been used by ten's of thousands of people in over 50 countries.

Here's why it works. emWave shows the effects of stress on your body by measuring the subtle changes in your heart rhythms through a patented HRV measurement and coherence scoring processs. This type of measurement is known as Heart Rate Variability analysis. The analysis of HRV 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 emotional state.

However, emWave does a lot more than just show the effects of stress on your body. It reduces stress by training you to create more coherence. Coherence is a term used by scientists to describe a highly efficient physiological state in which the nervous system, cardiovascular, hormonal and immune systems are working efficiently and harmoniously. Coherence is a state very similar to what athletes experience when they are in what is called The Zone.

Heart Rhythms and Coherence

When you experience stressful emotions such as tension, anxiety, irritation, or anger, your heart rhythm pattern becomes irregular and incoherent, which negatively affects health, brain function, performance and your sense of well-being (see the graph below).

Figure 1: heart rhythms when stressed

When you are experiencing positive emotions such as appreciation, care, joy or love, your heart rhythm pattern becomes more ordered and coherent. (See graph below.)

Figure 2: heart rhythms when feeling a positive emotion

Ordered and harmonious heart rhythms are an indicator of your coherence level. High coherence is a state associated with positive emotional attitudes which send signals to the brain that reduce stress, improve brain function, hormonal balance, immune response, coordination and reaction times.

For most people in today's high stress world, it is rare for sustained periods of coherence to occur. Now with the emWave technology you have a convenient and practical way to help you reduce stress and shift into a higher state of coherence in the moment, anytime... anywhere.

Use the emWave Pro at home or in the office for longer, in-depth sessions when you want to observe your heart rhythm patterns, save sessions or play any of the interactive coherence games or the Emotion Visualizer. To learn more about emWave Pro Stress Relief System, click here.
