La Fuerza del Corazón


IHM is a recognized, global leader in emotional physiology, stress management and the physiology of heart-brain research.

The HeartMath Research Center is engaged in basic psychophysiology, neurocardiology and biophysics research, and in clinical, workplace and organizational intervention and treatment outcome studies in collaboration with numerous university and health care system partners.

Our research has significantly advanced the understanding of heart-brain interactions, heart-rhythm-pattern and heart-rate-variability analyses, emotional physiology and the physiology of optimal learning and performance.

Expanding areas interest at the Institute of HeartMath include furthering scientific understanding of the human biofield, intuition and the emotional energetic system.

The Global Coherence Monitoring System a forefront project that will examine the energetic resonance between the earth’s magnetic filed and the rhythms of human heart and brain activity. Other expanding areas of interest at the HeartMath Research Center include furthering scientific understanding of the human biofield, intuition and the emotional energetic system.

The basic research has led to the development of highly innovative training programs, technology and techniques which are helping people live healthier, more meaningful lives in more than 50 nations from Australia and New Zealand, China and the rest of Asia and the Middle East, to Europe, Africa, Latin America and North America.

A primary area of concentration at the Institute of HeartMath is researching how students, from young children through adults, learn. We are constantly striving to find new programs and methods to help improve academic performance, student and teacher well-being and classroom climate.

Researchers at the HeartMath Research Center have identified a measurable physiological state that underlies optimal learning and performance. In this state, our emotions are calm, and our brain, nervous system and other bodily systems function with increased synchronization and harmony. This in turn, facilitates the higher cognitive processes critical for focusing attention, reasoning and creativity – all essential for effective learning, academic achievement and social success.

Through our education division, we develop, test and distribute learning programs for schools. Students using HeartMath’s highly acclaimed TestEdge® and HeartSmarts® programs demonstrate impressive gains in academic performance, reduction of stress levels and anxiety and significant improvements in their attitudes and behaviors. The Resilient Educator® program helps teachers cope more effectively with the stress in today’s classrooms. The Qualified Instructor® Program, a train-the-trainer program, goes a step further by teaching and licensing professional trainers, educators and consultants to provide HeartMath skills to teachers, administrators and other school staff. Go to Education.

One of IHM’s most important education studies has been the TestEdge National Demonstration Study, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The TENDS study has been hailed as a major achievement for improving academic performance. Among the study’s key findings is that test anxiety can have a major impact on students’ performance and scores.

Results of the TENDS and other studies indicate that HeartMath techniques have helped increase children’s stress management, interpersonal skills and comfort in the classroom environment as well as improve their learning and test scores.
