“The Inner-Ease™ technique is working really well. People feel like they are in a hurricane, so they relate to being the ‘eye of the storm.’ They are being pulled in too many different directions. Inner-Ease is the tool they can relate to the most.”

Shelly Scamardo Kantor, Health Promotion Supervisor, Tampa General Hospital

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should take it! The skills obtained as well as the information shared can be truly life altering as it can be applied to anyone, in any field. The techniques learned are simple yet deep, very effective and so needed in this day and age. And most importantly, there is a lot of science behind it and so much research proving that it really does work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring, although life is always unfolding... My background comes from nearly thirty years of meditation. The past nine years of studying Zen in Japan under a highly regarded Zen master. Of those nine years, the last six years were as as a monk at his temple. The tools and philosophy that HeartMath teaches are by far the best I found to make positive and empowering changes to your life without the rigor of the Zen approach and the countless hours on a cushion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision of my career As a professional life coach for the past 10 years, I have participated in many workshops and trainings to learn tools to help clients overcome automatic stress reactions, instill new habits and beliefs, and live happier, healthier lives. Heartmath has given me the best tools that are very simple to use with quick results, that have helped me, and my clients, regulate our emotional responses and manage stress effectively. I highly recommend their HMCT training program. You will get all of the course content in advance of the training so that you can spend most of your time learning how to teach the material under the guidance of the master trainers. I did the HMCT training in person in April 2019 at their Boulder Creek Research facility and the grounds are stunningly beautiful. This training was the best decision of my coaching career.
