HeartMath and Stress Management


HeartMath_Horizontal-Logo-Lock-up_COLOR 2.75





HeartMath uses self-regulating techniques and technology to help build resilience and strengthen our ability to prepare for stress and our capacity to recover from it. It is a great way to manage energy and it is one of the tools I use to balance emotions, calm an overactive mind and replenish energy levels. On this page, you can find out more about HeartMath, stress management and how to include them in your consultations with me.



Stress Management

We all need to be adaptable in the face of challenge or adversity and we often talk about this as ‘resilience’. Resilience can be thought of as the amount of energy you can store in your inner battery. The more energy you have stored, the greater your capacity to remain calm, think clearly and be in control of your emotions so you don’t overreact. The greater your resilience, the more energy you will have available when you need it.  Having more energy means you have a greater capacity to self-regulate and be in charge with how you respond in situations particularly in difficult situations.

Most importantly, with more resilience we can reduce the amount of stress which has such detrimental effects on our bodies! You can read more about the impact of stress and the importance of stress management here.


How does HearthMath work?

HeartMath is based on self-regulating techniques based on very simple breathing exercises combined with emotional awareness exercises. HeartMath techniques and technology are based on understanding Heart Rate Variability (HRV) to help people bring their physical, mental and emotional systems into balance. A few minutes of daily coherence practice has been shown to reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, such as overwhelm, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout.[1]

The beauty of it is that it is incredibly simple yet capable of prompting long-lasting shifts in attitudes, mental states and emotional wellbeing. Using it alongside other methods and programs, it results in more energy, less anxiety, clearer thinking, improved cognition and better quality of sleep.Clinical-Stress-Risk-Reduction-Data1
