Institute of HeartMath Tools for Well-Being

Welcome to Tools for Well-Being

These helpful tools for reducing stress and self-managing emotions incorporate your body’s own heart intelligence and capacity for self-healing. They can help you in the moment virtually anywhere to create a feeling of ease and inner harmony. Developed by HeartMath scientists, these tools activate the heart and body’s natural rhythms, which then reflect this feeling, allowing you to become more coherent. Coherence is a healthful and optimal state for your immune system, cognitive function, communication, creativity, intuition and more.
