Boulder Creek, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
HeartMath® LLC is announcing today the latest addition to their emWave® technology products: The highly anticipated emWave® Mac Stress Relief System. For years Mac® users have been clamoring for an emWave technology product for their favorite platform and the HeartMath team is delighted to now offer the emWave experience for the Mac. This easy-to-use software program is designed to prevent, manage and reverse the negative effects of stress, anxiety, fatigue, depression and more. This revolutionary lifestyle tool adds to your Mac the power of real-time heart rhythm feedback, allowing you to effectively gain greater control of your stress without major life changes.
emWave Mac is based on HeartMath's seventeen years of scientific research demonstrating the critical link between emotions, heart function and cognitive performance. Science has shown that when we experience and sustain heartfelt emotions like appreciation or care, it has a profoundly beneficial effect on our heart, cognitive functions and overall health. Numerous studies published in leading research journals such as American Journal of Cardiology, Stress Medicine and Preventive Cardiology demonstrate the effectiveness of 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 amongst the body's systems and increased cognitive performance.
Melanie Berry, Certified Biofeedback Professional with the Carolinas Biofeedback Clinic in Charlotte, NC and part-time researcher for the Williams Jennings Bryan Dorn Veteran's Affairs Medical Center in Columbia, SC, was one of the a beta testers of the emWave Mac Stress Relief System. Melanie said, "As a devoted emWave PC clinician, I'd have to say that the new emWave Mac has a fresh, clean and appealing design. I'm a believer in emWave technologies as an excellent stress relief tool that is consistently effective. The simple navigation of the emWave Mac makes it very user-friendly so that anyone can benefit from it. I also love that it works on my Mac!"
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 which plugs into your computer. When you are stressed, your heart rhythms have an incoherent, irregular and jagged-looking pattern. Conversely, when you are 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 user-friendly graphics displayed on your computer screen. As your emotional state changes you will see your heart rhythms change on the screen. With practice, you'll learn to respond differently to stress and instate a new internal reference point of coherence.
Simply said, coherence is a measurable state that occurs when the heart, brain and nervous system are working in harmony. With emWave Mac you learn to achieve and maintain a high level of coherence.
To help you learn how to create a state of internal balance, emWave Mac includes the animated interactive Coherence Coach® with easy instructions for the scientifically validated Quick Coherence® stress reduction technique. As you apply the simple steps for this technique you will see your heart rhythms change almost instantaneously - shifting out of stress and into a more balanced, regenerative emotional state.
emWave Mac also allows you to track your progress over time and has three colorful interactive games that are powered by your heart rhythms. The games respond to your level of coherence and your ability to sustain it. How far you advance in a game depends on using your newly learned skills, which makes practice sessions fun and rewarding.
