emWave® Personal Stress Reliever® for Federal Facilities
An interview with Carol Thompson, Director of HeartMath® Health Professionals Program
Q: I noticed an increasing demand for emWave® Personal Stress Reliever® in federal facilities. Could you tell me more about how exactly the product work?
The emWave Personal Stress Reliever is a scientifically validated tool to reduce stress, balance emotions and increase performance. The emWave Stress Relief heart rhythm technologies facilitate learning internal awareness, self-regulation, stress resiliency, and emotional management skills. The computer program provides the feedback and visual evidence that the individual can change their nervous system and their physical, mental, and emotional state. The portable unit gives users an easy way to practice at home or in the field. Both units are simple, easy to use, and effective. Results can be seen in a short period of time, and the technologies can be used individually and also in groups.
Q: So who may find this product useful? And how does it help them?
Regular use of the emWave technology has resulted in stress reduction benefits by military personnel and veterans with PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety, anger, depression, sleeplessness, panic disorders, irritability, mood disturbances, impulse control, and substance abuse. The emWave Personal Stress Reliever helps users reduce stress, regulate the nervous system, and develop inner resources for improved self-regulation and self-responsibility.
Q: What types of federal facilities are currently using emWave Personal Stress Reliever? Why does this product come so highly recommended by patients and practitioners?
Many health professionals in all 4 branches of the military, the National Guard, Veteran Centers, and VA Medical Centers are using HeartMath's emWave technology with active duty personnel and veterans. Examples include amputee centers, psychiatric services, behavioral health, substance abuse programs, anger management programs, PTSD clinics, warrior transition units, and polytrauma units.
The needs of military personnel are particularly urgent and the emWave technology is a useful adjunct to other treatment modalities. The emWave Stress Reliever is recommended for its design to address the physiological and emotional aspects of the healing process through simple exercises accompanied by the technologies, giving the therapist and patient immediate feedback.
"I managed inpatient and outpatient PTSD programs at a VA facility for over 20 years and used HeartMath since the very early days. Every returning war-zone vet should have the opportunity to re-wire their nervous system. I have done this with hundreds of heavy combat military personnel and most can learn to do this in 3-4 weeks. I am very big on HRV feedback and highly recommend HeartMath products." Clinical Psychologist, VA facility
