The Science Behind Inner Balance
The Inner Balance technology analyzes and displays our heart rhythm, measured by Heart Rate
Variability (HRV), which indicates how emotional states are affecting our nervous system.
HRV offers a unique window into the quality of communication between the heart and brain,
which directly impacts how we feel and perform.
The Inner Balance technology trains us to self-generate a highly efficient physiological
state called HRV coherence, which helps us increase emotional composure and clearer
reasoning. Recommended by health professionals worldwide, HRV coherence training has been
associated with many health and performance benefits. 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.
HeartMath has been a pioneer in HRV research and self-regulation training for over 25 years.
Over 250 independent peer-reviewed studies have been published on HeartMath technologies and
