Today's health professional needs an array of methods for treating illness and chronic emotional and mental problems. Many are using HeartMath programs, products and technology to improve stress-related patient outcomes while making their jobs easier.
Simply stated, HeartMath techniques place the body and mind in a state more conducive to healing, thereby supporting and amplifying the effects of other therapeutic interventions. Our techniques can help individuals become more aware of underlying sources of emotional turmoil that are contributing to physical imbalances and assume a proactive role in transforming these disturbances.
HeartMath techniques are easy to teach and their benefit can be demonstrated immediately in the office with a straightforward heart rate variability (HRV) monitoring device – HeartMath's patented and award-winning Freeze-Framer®.
Overall, by addressing the physical as well as the emotional and behavioral dimensions of illness, HeartMath interventions improve a patient's capacity to manage their disease and function effectively in the world. This makes the techniques applicable in many fields of medical care, both general and specialized.
Perhaps one of the most attractive aspects of HeartMath interventions is their generalizability among people of diverse cultures, age groups, socioeconomic status and spiritual persuasions. The techniques can be easily grasped, used effectively and enjoyably by most people. HeartMath techniques are applicable in the treatment of a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders. The interventions affect all aspects of physiology and provide a viable method of reducing the cumulative emotional energy drains that contribute to the development and progression of many illnesses.
Clinical studies and case histories of patients with diverse medical conditions have suggested that the HeartMath techniques, which have a positive affect on the autonomic, hormonal and immune systems, can improve:
- Panic disorder
- Chronic pain
- Chronic congestive heart failure
- Sleep disorder
Because the HeartMath techniques can be taught and implemented with minimal time and effort, and generally yield tangible improvements, they have a high rate of patient compliance. Further, by improving emotional self-regulation, the techniques can help patients increase compliance with other therapies and self-care procedures.
As our techniques directly address and transform the emotions at the source of distress, their practice often results in positive changes more rapid, profound, and enduring than those generally attainable through many commonly used psychotherapeutic methods or stress management techniques. HeartMath can serve as a powerful addition to any biomedical or psychotherapeutic treatment modality, to enhance emotional, mental, and physiological balance and promote systemic healing and recovery.
