Drawing on HeartMath’s rich evidence-based personal stress relief technologies, Thrive Global is adding HeartMath’s wellness products to help people and organizations thrive
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 HRV research has been validated in over two-hundred independent peer-reviewed studies and published in journals such as the American Journal of Cardiology, Preventive Cardiology and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology among many others.
HeartMath was the first recipient of the American Institute of Stress (AIS) Award for Distinction and Innovation. This award is granted to products and services that have been formally evaluated and validated as effective by AIS.
