According to the Institute of HeartMath®, award-winning emWave technology is an innovative approach to improving wellness and facilitating personal growth based on learning to change your heart rhythm pattern to create coherence. With emWave products, you learn to control your physiology through breathing along with your heart rhythms and focusing on positive emotions. emWave technology collects pulse data (using a pulse sensor) and translates the information from your heart rhythms into graphics on your computer or into easy to follow lights on the portable emWave2. As you focus on a positive emotion and breathe along with your heart rhythms, the graphs and lights change to reflect your level of coherence.
While an emWave is not necessary for continuing the Connection Practice, it is a valuable tool for becoming adept at entering coherence quickly no matter what is happening around you. emWaves are available in the online store.
