HeartMath, founded by Doc Childre, is known for their research-based programs, techniques and technology to improve health and well-being, while dramatically reducing stress. HeartMath system is being widely used within hospitals and healthcare systems, academic settings, and within the US military for resilience-building pre-deployment and Veteran Administration clinics that are working with emotionally wounded soldiers. More than 15,000 health professionals use the HeartMath techniques and technology with patients. Over twenty years of published research on HRV coherence and clinical studies have demonstrated the critical link between emotions, heart function and cognitive performance. These studies have been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals such as American Journal of Cardiology, Stress Medicine, Preventive Cardiology and Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

GPS for the Soul incorporates HeartMath’s® patented heart rate variability (HRV) coherence algorithm. When we are in HRV coherence (the “in-sync” state) the heart, mind and emotions become synchronized – working in harmony, which results in an optimal state of being. GPS for the Soul also includes a guide from HeartMath with a highly specialized HeartMath technique that when combined with HeartMath’s self-monitoring feature within the app, provides a powerful combination to stress relief and helps build emotional resilience.
HeartMath’s emWave technology was first in consumer products to provide HRV coherence and training. The emWave products have won numerous awards including the Last Gadget Standing People’s Choice Award at the Consumer Electronics Show, and the Award for Distinction and Innovation from the American Institute of Stress.

You can learn more about HeartMath and their stress solutions from its website and on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
