Stress Management-Biofeedback

(see press release)

Dr. Davidson utilizes state of the art biofeedback computer technology (called Freeze Framer Heart Math) to assist individuals in learning powerful deep relaxation methods. This program tracks between beat heart rate activity (heart rate variability) and respiration and allows for a synchronization of these systems. Heart rate variability has been shown to be one of the strongest predictors of heart health. This program has been found to produce impressive gains in reducing stress, anxiety, blood pressure, chronic pain, heart irregularity, fybromyalgia, post traumatic stress disrorder, and a variety of other medical and psychological conditions, as well as increasing states of mental well being. The program has also been shown to produce significant savings (ROI) for organizations in reducing turnover and sick time. For recent coverage of HeartMath in the Harvard Business Review and the Wall Street Journal, and more, see HeartMath.com.
