Boulder Creek, California (PRWEB) March 7, 2008
HeartMath's innovative emWave Personal Stress Reliever® (PSR) is becoming the stress intervention tool of choice in the field of psychotherapy. The emWave PSR, based on over 17 years of peer-reviewed research, puts the functionality of computer-based feedback devices into the palm of one's hand. It is a convenient tool to help people reduce stress and increase vitality, mental clarity and emotional balance. HeartMath® will be showcasing their mobile emWave PSR technology at the upcoming Psychotherapy Networker Conference in Washington, DC, March 13 through March 16.
In addition to the handheld emWave Personal Stress Reliever, HeartMath also offers a PC-computer program called the emWave® PC Stress Relief System. The emWave PC program includes many additional features such as the Emotions Visualizer® and several entertaining video games that are powered by the user's ability to shift their emotional state. Both of these features encourage the user to practice social and emotional skills while they're building a new emotional baseline. The emWave PC also allows therapists to save their clients' sessions so they can track their progress.
The emWave PSR (http://www.emwave.com) and emWave PC (http://www.emwavepc.com) are being used in clinical practices, medical centers, hospitals and Veterans Administration medical and residential treatment centers across the country. One soldier wrote to HeartMath that after he returned from duty in Iraq he sought help from his local VA Hospital, where he learned about the emWave PSR. He said, "My symptom was hyper-arousal. I've been using the emWave PSR to help me with the stress and anxiety of reintegrating back into a normal routine. I take it with me everywhere I go. Whenever I feel any stress or anxiety coming on it helps me to get back to a calm and clear state of mind and heart. This has been very reassuring."
HeartMath's award-winning emWave technologies are unique research-based interventions that focus on heart rhythm feedback, providing a refreshing departure from conventional biofeedback practices. HeartMath's peer-reviewed studies have demonstrated the critical link between emotions, heart function, and cognitive performance.
Psychotherapists favor HeartMath's heart-rhythm-feedback technologies because they are scientifically validated components of a larger system of research-based solutions that help people effectively transform difficult and unwanted mental and emotional stressors into healthier attitudes and behaviors. The added attraction for therapists is that the emWave technologies are very affordable and offer a variety of user-friendly features.
"We continue to hear inspiring stories from therapists around the world that are finding numerous applications for the emWave technologies," says psychologist Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., President of Quantum Intech, the parent company of HeartMath LLC. "For instance, many clinicians have found that having their clients use the emWave stress reliever before sensitive communications has had a positive impact on their relationship issues and has improved their communication skills. I'm also hearing from therapists that they've found the emWave PSR to be helpful in monitoring their own stress levels so they're more effective and attuned to their clients throughout their sessions."
Veterans' medical and residential treatment centers are currently conducting studies to determine the effects of HeartMath's intervention programs including the practice of the emWave technologies for improving outcomes with veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse issues.
HeartMath invites the Psychotherapy Networker Conference attendees to stop by the HeartMath booth for a demonstration of the emWave Personal Stress Reliever and emWave PC Stress Relief System. The conference will be held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel on March 13-16. HeartMath's booth is number 201 in the Regency Ballroom. HeartMath will also be offering a special show discount and giving away free gifts such as their "Improving Relationships" and "Eliminating Anxiety" e-books.
