HeartMath for Health Professionals

Empower Your Patients...Transform Your Practice.

Stress and anxiety have a major impact on the health and well-being of your patients. What if you could teach them simple techniques that could help them connect with their heart to manage stress and learn to regulate their emotions?

Science demonstrates that we can train our autonomic nervous system to support our well-being. Evidence-based techniques 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.

Heart Rate Variability Coherence – A New Frontier

The New Science of Stress Management

HeartMath Institute Research Director discusses why heart coherence is essential in stress management and sustainable behavior change.

Stress management starts in the heart

HeartMath research has found that heartfelt emotions generate an optimal psychophysiological state called coherence which is associated with improvements in health, well-being and performance. To learn more about HeartMath Science, click here.

Coherence can be seen and measured in the heart’s rhythmic activity, also called heart rate variability (HRV).

Seeing is believing

HeartMath technology provides real-time, visible evidence that your clients can control their thoughts and emotions.

With HeartMath techniques and technology, you can see your own heart rate variability pattern and learn to shift into coherence in real time.


The techniques are simple, easy and uplifting to practice…anyone can learn in a few minutes.

Daily practice can bring results quickly!

Over 25 years of HeartMath research with over 300 peer-reviewed or independent studies underpin the effectiveness the HeartMath approach. Our research partners have included Stanford, UCLA, Duke, Mayo, the VA, NASA, Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, Boeing and many more.

“We used the HeartMath coherence technology in a randomized clinical trial with couples experiencing domestic violence. …they would get into the coherent state with the emWave so they could listen to their partner. We have developed the only intervention in domestic violence that eliminates situational domestic violence. Even on 18 month follow-up it’s gone. They stay calm even when they’re disagreeing. So this is very powerful.”
John Gottman, Ph. D.​
Co-Founder of the Gottman Institute​
“Over the years, HeartMath has conducted research validating the power of the heart in relieving stress and promoting health. They’ve formulated practical interventions that incorporate the understanding that the heart profoundly affects our perceptions, awareness, and intelligence…HeartMath techniques, which focus on the power of the heart…are frequently successful.”
Mimi Guarneri, MD

“HeartMath stabilizes the mindsight lens by teaching you how to sense energy flow in the body (for example, thoughts and emotions) with repeated practice that builds your mindsight tripod, stabilizing your ability to see the sea inside, and seeing more clearly what is there….this important skill can be mastered with practice.”

In over 25 years of clinical practice I have studied many treatment modalities and taught my clients skills that can help them to heal and grow. Without exception, the HeartMath tools are the most utilized. The immediate and ongoing benefits my clients obtain through the use of these tools have been wonderful to watch.
