HeartMath LLC has announced the latest addition to their emWave
technology products: the emWave Mac Stress Relief System
(http://www.heartmath.com/emwavemac). This software program is
designed to prevent, manage and reverse the negative effects of
stress, anxiety, fatigue, depression and more by offering real-time
heart rhythm feedback.

The goal is to allow you to effectively gain greater control of your
stress without major life changes. HeartMath’s techniques and
technologies. HeartMath’s approach teaches individuals how to change
their heart rhythm patterns and create “physiological coherence” —
an internal state of calm and balance among the body’s systems and
increased cognitive performance, according to the folks at HeartMath.

Utilizing HeartMath’s patented heart rhythm feedback technology,
emWave Mac essentially mirrors your emotional state by collecting
heart rhythm data through an USB ear sensor that plugs into your
computer. When you’re stressed, your heart rhythms have an
incoherent, irregular and jagged-looking pattern. Conversely, when
you’re calm, happy and balanced your heart rhythms have a coherent,
smooth and wave-like pattern.

With emWave Mac you will see how your thoughts and emotions are
affecting your heart and nervous system in real time. The program
translates the information from your heart rhythms into graphics
displayed on your computer screen. As your emotional state changes
you’ll see your heart rhythms change on the screen. With practice,
you’ll purportedly learn to respond differently to stress and instate
a new internal reference point of coherence.

emWave Mac includes the animated interactive Coherence Coach and
instructions for the Quick Coherence stress reduction technique.
emWave Mac also allows you to track your progress over time and has
three interactive games that are powered by your heart rhythms.
