Founded in 1991 by Doc Childre, HeartMath® has developed a system of effective, scientifically based tools and technologies to understand and bridge the intuitive connection between heart and mind. The HeartMath system guides people to self-regulate their emotions and behaviors to reduce stress, increase resilience, and unlock their natural intuitive guidance for making more effective choices.
The techniques developed create emotional refocusing and restructuring of neural circuits. They facilitate alignment among the physical, mental and emotional systems through building coherence. All of the techniques affect brain centers such as the amygdala, hippocampus, prefrontal cortex and thalamus and involve improvements in heart-brain synchronization, hormonal balance, the autonomic nervous system and vagal pathways.
These techniques and technologies are easy to use and can be applied in the fast pace of life. Over 400 peer-reviewed or independent studies utilizing HeartMath techniques or technologies to achieve beneficial outcomes have been published.

Inner Balance™ Technology
The Inner Balance™ Trainer is based on years of scientific research and is designed to teach you how to shift your emotional state in the moment – so you feel better and think more clearly. When we’re stressed, we feel poorly, and our brain function and creative thinking become impaired.
Learn how to synchronize your heart, mind, and body to reset your composure and inner clarity, calm reactive emotions, and neutralize stress. This creates an inner state called coherence. With practice, you’ll feel calmer, more centered and focused – and enjoy a ‘carryover effect’ into your next activity. You will access more intuitive discernment to make better decisions.
This technology uses heart rhythm feedback to tell you when you’re on the right track. A quick and easy 3-5 minute session a few times a day is enough to make a meaningful difference.
