HeartMath® for Stress Management/Biofeedback

Stress affects the entire body and can cause physical and psychological problems. Overtime, unchecked stress can cause the body to stay in a constant and chronic state of stress promoting migraines, fatigue and illness. Research has demonstrated several types of biofeedback practices can be helpful to reduce stress and regulate heart rate variability.

In this class you will discover your stress baseline through using HeartMath® electronic educational learning devices. After practicing several HeartMath® stress management techniques, you will be able to monitor your progress by checking your stress baseline and heart rhythm patterns with educational learning device while in class. It is fun, effective and easy to learn.
