Many of you know I have been researching the heart and its role in our health and wellbeing for some time. I am fascinated with all the new research that shows that the heart is much more complex that a simple pump, instead being a highly developed organ of perception and insight. In many studies, the heart responds before the brain to stressful events and can even predict future events and stresses before they happen (!)
Along the way, some of you have learned a technique for stress management from me called heart breathing which can help shift you into a state of peace and calm. I am excited to now offer a tool and device which gives additional insight and feedback on how well you are managing stress and the impact your state of mind is having on your health. These range of important and simple tools and practices can help manage your stress and teach you how to get out of mental and emotional chaos and into peace and balance!
Using this cutting edge emwave pro device from HeartMath we can assess how stress is impacting on you and teach you how to get yourself into a healthy mind and body. When you are operating from a place of inner balance, the benefits are widespread including improved moods, balanced hormones, anti-ageing effects, better digestion and robust immunity.
Using the HeartMath tools and technology gives us important bio-feedback which can help to change our nervous system’s response to stress, and in turn achieve new levels of health and wellbeing. The device displays heart rate variability which gives you accurate feedback on what your internal state of being is, displaying it in wave patterns. (see picture right)
When we experience stressful or negative emotions such as tension, anxiety, irritation, frustration and anger our heart rhythm pattern becomes irregular and incoherent, which negatively affects many aspects of health from digestion to immunity and hormones. It can also negatively impact on brain function, performance and our moods and sense of well-being. In contrast when we experience positive emotions such as love, gratitude, appreciation, compassion and joy our heart, brain and respiratory system experience optimal function and promotes health and wellbeing throughout the body.
If you would like to learn some simple stress management methods to shift your inner state out of busyness, stress and chaos into inner peace, calm and effectiveness, then make an appointment for a stress busting session. Get accurate feedback with a scientific tool and learn to manage anxiety, depression, anger and watch how your health and happiness improves!
