HeartMath’s Work Reaches Impressive Milestone

HeartMath®’s Work Reaches Impressive Milestone

Hundreds of Independent Research Teams Using HeartMath Methodologies to Substantiate New Research

January 8, 2018 – Boulder Creek, California – HeartMath® Inc. and the HeartMath Institute have played an important role in science and technology by helping to establish how heart rate variability (HRV) coherence improves cognitive functions and facilitates self-regulation, emotional well-being, health and sports performance. Recently, a collective and impressive milestone was reached. Over 300 publications including published research papers, dissertations and reports have been produced, many by independent research teams using HeartMath methodologies and technologies.

Many of these independent studies confirm or reference the original heart rate variability coherence research conducted by the HeartMath Institute. “We are genuinely honored that the HeartMath Institute’s research and the collective HeartMath work is recognized by the scientific and technology communities as a substantiated platform to build from,” said Deborah Rozman, Ph.D, President of HeartMath Inc. “HeartMath is helping to set an industry-wide standard for stress and HRV technologies and apps for the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) Stress Standards Committee for the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), underscoring the value of HeartMath research, methods, and interventions.”

Many of the independent research teams utilize various research-based HeartMath techniques and HRV coherence technologies in a wide range of applications. This includes many peer-reviewed papers authored by independent researchers.

These research studies address topics such as physician and nurse stress, reducing violence, reducing health costs, emotional regulation, addiction recovery, trauma interventions, HRV coherence biofeedback for stress management, academic performance in children of different ages, PTSD, intuition, and much more.

Some highlights from these publications:

Building Personal and Professional Resources of Resilience and Agility in the Healthcare Workplace describes a successful study at the Mayo Clinic with healthcare leaders and oncology staff.

A controlled pilot study of stress management training of elderly patients with congestive heart failure was conducted by Dr. Fred Luskin of Stanford University and published in Preventative Cardiology. The study demonstrated both physical and emotional improvements.

Reducing Situational Violence in Low‐Income Couples by Fostering Healthy Relationships is by John Gottman’s well known relationships team.

Coherence Training in Children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder reports significant improvements in both cognitive functioning and social behavior.

This growing body of work illustrates how the HeartMath methodologies are effective across a wide range of populations, including SWAT officers, nurses, children from preschool through high school, college students, individuals with ADHD, AIDS sufferers, veterans and corporate executives. In nearly all cases, applying HeartMath methods resulted in significant improvements in reduced stress and improved health and wellbeing.

“For me personally, this collective milestone illustrates not only the benefits of HRV coherence feedback technology to enhance self-regulation and emotional control, but also speaks to the need for more scientifically validated methods and technologies that guide people into a balanced, internally coherent state. This is how people can learn how to more quickly make and sustain needed behavior changes or improved health,” said Rozman. “Once people realize they can take charge of stress, anxiety and overwhelm, they live happier and more self-empowered lives.”

In Light of the Recent Natural Disasters throughout the U.S. and Abroad, HeartMath is Offering Free Resources to Help

In Light of the Recent Natural Disasters throughout the U.S. and Abroad, HeartMath is Offering Free Resources to Help

Boulder Creek, California – September 14, 2017 – In light of the recent natural disasters, the HeartMath® Inc. organization announced today that they are offering free emotional support resources in hopes that it will encourage people along the way as we work through this challenging time. The resources can be downloaded from their website with the links provided below.

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have left behind levels of destruction that many are still trying to wrap their minds around. These super-sized hurricanes, the countless wildfires across the U.S. and abroad, and the mammoth sized 8.1 earthquake in Mexico have exhausted many people’s mental and emotional stamina.

“When significant events happen, like what we’ve seen recently, our stress tolerance level depletes from the initial shock and the ongoing anxiety and emotional pain people are experiencing,” said Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., President of HeartMath Inc.

A behavioral psychologist, Rozman, added, “Many people are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, uncertainty and overwhelm. Being displaced is tough enough, but many have lost everything except their lives- and in some cases, are feeling the traumas of others in addition to their own.”

Experts say that a lot of emotions are triggered following natural disasters. At first there is shock and disbelief and then as reality starts to sink in they may feel confused, angry or irritable.

“An array of feelings will surface, which is why tools that can ease the rollercoaster of emotions are so critical right now, said Rozman. This is why we want to offer free resources that can help,” she added.

With over 300 independent peer-reviewed studies, HeartMath Inc. and the not for profit HeartMath Institute are recognized worldwide for their research and scientifically validated methods for reducing stress, anxiety and overwhelm while helping to restore inner balance, self-security, resilience and a sense of well-being.

“There is much support needed now and in the months to come,” commented Rozman. “It is heart-warming to see so many people reaching out to help. People of different races, ethnicities and beliefs are putting all that aside to step forward with care and compassion for each other, their neighbors and communities. I believe, we will all grow stronger from this, she added.”

Resources for Adults from HeartMath Inc.:

The free emotional support resources for adults and children being offered by HeartMath can be downloaded at www.heartmath.com/freeresources.

This care package includes e-books and audio booklets as well as a video guide to walk people through a scientifically validated technique developed by HeartMath called the Quick Coherence® technique.

Chubu University in Kasugai, Japan is working with HeartMath and their Certified Trainers to employ the Quick Coherence® technique to help anxious children and adults that have been enduring PTSD symptom ever since Japan’s massive 9.0 earthquake in 2011. These validated methods have been employed for disaster relief in many devastated areas – from helping Katrina survivors to people that endured the flooding in Alberta, Canada to adult and children refugees in Lebanon.

Boulder Creek, Calif., November 30, 2016 — HeartMath®, Inc., is pleased to announce that it is an official core partner with Thrive Global as a member of their expert thought leaders team. Thrive Global is a new corporate and consumer well¬being and productivity platform that hopes to change how we work and live, founded and led by Arianna Huffington. The HeartMath organization was invited to partner with Thrive Global due to their effective methods for dealing with stress, overwhelm, nervous system health and other critical challenges related to emotional self-regulation.

Thrive Global’s primary aim is to help alleviate the overwhelming amount of stress so many people are struggling with and improve the overall health and wellness of people and organizations globally. HeartMath is an acknowledged world leader in stress and resilience technologies that train users to release and reset their response to stress in real-time, and achieve a state of inner balance and optimal functioning.

The HeartMath organization has spent over two decades researching an optimal physiological state called “coherence’, where heart, mind and emotions operate in harmony and synchronicity. Their award-winning technology, called the Inner Balance with pulse sensor for Android and iOS devices provides real-time feedback on the user’s HRV (heart rhythm) coherence level then guides the user into a more coherent internal state. Research has shown when the heart rhythm pattern shifts into a more coherent mode, user’s release stress and overwhelm in the moment. Spending just a few minutes in heart rhythm coherence with the Inner Balance app has been shown to have a positive carryover effect through daily activities and challenges. Users have easier access to inner calm, clarity in decision-making, and experience quicker recovery of emotional composure.

Pre and post assessments and outcome studies with thousands of people show significant improvements in sleep, energy levels and mood, along with reductions in anxiety, depression and stress-related conditions after just a few weeks’ coherence practice.

“I appreciate Arianna Huffington for her skilled commitment to curating evidence-based best practices and technologies that can help people empower their health and wellness,” said Dr. Deborah Rozman, President and CEO of HeartMath Inc., “Together we hope to improve the lives of millions of people worldwide.”

HeartMath® Institute Launches New Interactive e-Learning Program

The Sunshine Secret teaches children to recognize, express and self-regulate emotions and behavior

Boulder Creek, Calif., October 24, 2016 – Teaching kids about their emotions and managing their behavior provides an enormous advantage in navigating today’s unique challenges, according to the HeartMath® Institute (HMI), developers of a new e-Learning program, the Sunshine Secret. “Learning about your emotions, and how they can help you can be easy, fun and effective for children, teachers and parents,” said Jeff Goelitz, an HMI education specialist and one of the program’s chief developers

Officials at HeartMath, known for their published research and success in classroom programs that teach emotional skills, launched the program this month, are saying that the planning, development and testing of Sunshine Secret, for ages 3-7, resulted in a highly interactive learning experience that kids’ loved participating in.
The Sunshine Secret engages the whole child by involving their intellect, their creative abilities and by having children use their eyes, ears, hands and voice and what HeartMath calls qualities of the heart such as appreciation, kindness and care.
“Schools have been asking us to put our social-emotional tools into an e-learning format for years, and we are excited to be launching HeartMath’s first e-learning product,” said Goelitz. “We solicited and received lots of help from of parents and educators to make this very user friendly. These days children and parents want a lot freedom to choose what best suits their needs and interests, and I think that’s the program’s strength.”
Sunshine Secret uses current computer and tablet technology to engage boys and girls on multiple levels as they learn how to recognize, self-regulate and control their emotions.

Sunshine Secret

 

The program’s variety of interactive activities are aimed at gently challenging young children while teaching them important social-emotional skills that research shows will aid them during their school years and into adulthood.

Sunshine Secret is an animated story set in a forest about the adventures of Gloria the glowworm and Leon the Chameleon. The pair long to learn the secret of glowing green and eventually discover that the secret lies in the ability to change their emotions. HeartMath calls this emotional self-regulation, a process researchers and psychologists say can renew and improve emotional outlook and behavior in addition to providing physical and mental benefits.

Within each story chapter, children complete support activities designed to achieve positive emotional outcomes. These include putting together virtual puzzles, coloring exercises with story characters and learning emotion vocabulary words.

HeartMath, widely known for the tools and techniques they have developed for lowering stress and managing emotions, included a children’s tool in Sunshine Secret called Heart Shine.
“This is a simple tool for teaching kids how they can replace negative emotions like anger and hurt with understanding, compassion and hope,” HMI President Sara Childre. “What it teaches them is how to activate, or think about the natural and uplifting qualities of the heart. It’s a wonderful way for them to get through any challenge.”

Other interactive activities in the program include:
•  Identifying and matching emotion faces.
•  Appreciation Board for promoting positive attitudes and feelings.
•  Sing-along songs to reinforce key program concepts and skills.
•  Animated videos with age-appropriate science content, including a frog’s life cycle, the sun and more.

Sunshine Secret has on-screen visual and audio instructions, separate Parent Guide and Educator guides and a number of other support resources. Children receive a certificate of completion after finishing the program.

Helping Teens Combat Stress by Staying Cool Under Pressure

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Contact: Cassie Kolias
[email protected], (510) 594-6142


The United States suicide rate is at a 30-year-high, and teens are facing more stressors than ever before – with social media, cyber bullying, and the pressure to be perfect. In Transforming Stress for Teens (August 1, 2016), leaders from the world-renowned HeartMath® Institute and Clemson University’s Youth Learning Institute team up to teach overwhelmed and stressed-out teen readers how to use proven-effective HeartMath® skills. These tools and techniques will help readers manage daily stress and anxiety and develop resilience by managing emotion. Scientists at the HeartMath® Institute discovered that your emotions affect your heart rhythms. The research showed that emotions such as frustration, anger, anxiety, impatience, worry, fear and sadness, for instance—the ones that drain your inner battery and that feel lousy—create a heart rhythm pattern that looks disordered and chaotic. That chaotic signal goes straight to your brain, causing a panic mode, preventing you from thinking straight. You can begin to recharge your inner battery by focusing on emotions that feel good to you. Emotions such as kindness, care, courage, appreciation, joy and patience create a smooth and ordered pattern in your heart rhythms. When your heart rhythm is even, you feel more centered, can think more clearly and have greater ability to handle the stressful situations with a lot less emotional drama. “At the heart of managing stress is how you respond to a situation,” the authors write. “Challenging situations, big and small, are a part of life, no matter how old you are. It’s how you handle those situations that counts.”

What people are saying about Transforming Stress for Teens:

Filled with research-proven, practical suggestions for transforming stress in teens, this insightful book can help you create clarity and calm in the face of the daily challenges of life. This is a step-by-step guide with accessible practices as well as interesting proposals about intuition and relationships, offering new ways of strengthening your mind and improving your life. Dive in and feel the power of this approach!
Daniel J. Siegel, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Brainstorm and Mind

Less stress, less drama, more true friends! Transforming Stress for Teens provides the skills and knowledge teens need to take back their power, and experience both acceptance and understanding. Fit in, be loving, and be loved, yet remain uniquely and genuinely you! A must read.

Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart

Science shows that the heart is an intelligence system, the topic of a new book, Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart

March 17, 2016 – BOULDER CREEK, CALIFORNIA –Recent discoveries show that the heart possesses its own intrinsic nervous system, referred to as the “heart brain.” This intelligence system has the ability to independently sense and process information. The HeartMath Institute demonstrated that one’s intuitive capabilities are closely tied to the heart-brain and the heart’s rhythms. In the new book, Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart, these new discoveries about the heart’s intelligence are clearly laid out. The book explains how a specific rhythmic pattern of the heart, referred to as “heart coherence”, can be intentionally created, thereby increasing one’s intuitive discernment and improving decision-making skills. The book has four authors: Doc Childre, founder of HeartMath, and HeartMath executives Deborah Rozman, Howard Martin, and Rollin McCraty. Their vision is to help create a heart-connected world through a deeper understanding of the intuitive intelligence within our heart. This combined with a growing global awareness that our heart’s intelligence is essential if we are to co-create a better world and future, sets the stage for the new release, Heart Intelligence. Updated scientific findings are presented in the first six chapters, and the last five chapters provide practical tools that readers can use to activate the intuitive connection between the heart and mind. Many know the struggle of quieting the mind to find that elusive stillness, hoping to connect with their intuition. Heart Intelligence de-mystifies this practice and grounds it in a user-friendly understanding, and provides methods for easier access to inner stillness. The benefits the book provides also include: how to connect with the intuitive heart for moment-to-moment guidance in simple or hard to make choices; techniques for easing the challenge of replacing patterns that drain one’s life force such as fear, stress and overwhelm; and practices that help the reader to exercise a deep compassion without the emotional fatigue. The authors explain how changing the heart’s rhythm to the coherence state helps sustain resilience and emotional balance. The intuitive heart, as the authors refer to it, creates access to more effective choices personally and collectively. Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., co-author of Heart Intelligence and President of HeartMath Inc., sums it up nicely: “Our choices are constantly determining our peace, happiness and self-security — or the stress and decline of our well-being. Learning to utilize our heart’s intuitive intelligence is a natural gift we can refer to, no matter what religion, personal growth, or spiritual path we may practice.”
