Boulder Creek, California (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Baby boomers are recognized for taking a proactive approach to the health of their mind, body, and spirit. According to a 2006 study from the Natural Marketing Institute, 4 out of 5 boomers feel that relieving their stress would increase their quality of life. New stress-reduction technology products from HeartMath® LLC are designed to do just that. Created by boomers for boomers, the handheld emWave Personal Stress Reliever® and the emWave® PC Stress Relief System are breakthroughs in personal stress reduction technology. Both products will be introduced and demonstrated at the 2007 What’s Next Boomer Business Summit on March 5th and 6th at the Hyatt Regency Chicago (www.boomersummit.com).
The emWave Personal Stress Reliever (PSR) and emWave PC Stress Relief System are designed to prevent, manage, and reverse the negative effects of stress. These technologies essentially mirror your emotional state by reading your heart rhythms, and give real-time feedback so you can more effectively manage stress and reset your inner balance. Cardiologist Bruce Wilson, MD, clinical associate professor of medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, says: “I have found the emWave to be an excellent tool to help people learn to quickly shift out of stress and into a healthier emotional state, which affects many aspects of health.”
More than a dozen independent studies utilizing HeartMath’s technologies are underway. Respected organizations including Kaiser Permanente, Veterans Administration, and University of North Carolina are exploring the benefits of these technologies with various health challenges including anxiety, stress, ADHD, and hypertension.
emWave Personal Stress Reliever is a mobile interactive device, small enough to fit in your purse or pocket. Weighing just 2.2 ounces, emWave PSR reads your heart rhythms through its built-in finger sensor and gives immediate feedback, reflecting your emotional state.
The emWave PC Stress Relief System is a software and hardware program that collects data from your heart through a finger or ear-clip sensor that plugs into your computer. The program translates the information into user-friendly graphics displayed on your computer monitor in real-time. emWave PC allows you to track your progress and has interactive games and stunning images that emit varying degrees of color and movement as you adjust your emotional state.
The emWave products are two components of the HeartMath® System, which is based on 16 years of research on the relationship between stress and emotions. These technologies help you prepare for and quickly recoup from stress triggers like finances, meetings and deadlines, health issues, and relationship conflicts by rebalancing the mind and emotions.
With both emWave PSR and emWave PC you learn to build a buffer against stress by accessing a high-performance state called coherence (http://www.emwave.com/how_emwave_coherence.html). Coherence is a mental and emotional state people experience when they’re in-sync or in the “zone” – when the heart, brain, and nervous system are working in harmony. Simply stated, more coherence equals improved energy and less stress. Coherence can be initiated by genuinely activating a positive feeling – something that warms your heart with a sense of appreciation or care. Science has shown that when we experience and sustain a heartfelt emotion, it has a profoundly beneficial effect on our heart, cognitive functions, and overall health. In contrast, when we’re feeling stress, anxiety, anger, or frustration, it creates a cascade of physiological responses that accelerate aging.
“Stress doesn’t discriminate – it affects everyone’s life and contributes to feeling disconnected,” says Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., president of Quantum Intech, parent company of HeartMath LLC. “Our products help to put you in control of your emotional experiences and revitalize your connection with your own spirit, relationships, and life. They speak to the heart, mind, and soul of boomers.”
HeartMath has earned a global reputation for their innovative research and is acknowledged world-wide as a pioneer in the science of cardiac coherence. The HeartMath System is being used by Duke Medical Center, Stanford, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Sutter Health, and many other top medical centers around the world.
Dr. Deborah Rozman will be on a panel of experts speaking about Health, Beauty, and Wellness at the What’s Next Boomer Business Summit on Tuesday, March 6th from 10:45am to 12:15pm CT. She’ll also announce the emWave products at the summit press conference on Tuesday, March 6th at 2:00pm CT. These events will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 E. Wacker Drive.
