The Institute of HeartMath Research Center is a recognized global leader in emotional physiology, optimal function, resilience and stress-management research. The center conducts basic research into psychophysiology, neurocardiology and biophysics, and outcome studies in clinical, workplace, educational and military settings, frequently in collaboration with universities, research centers and health-care-system partners. This research has significantly advanced understanding of heart-brain interactions, heart-rate variability (HRV) and heart-rhythm coherence, and the physiology of optimal learning and performance. 

Research interests also include the electrophysiology of intuition and exploring how we are all globally interconnected at a deep, fundamental level via electromagnetic fields and biofields.


HeartMath spent 20 years researching the physiology of stress and resilience, and how people can self-manage their stress response in the moment. HeartMath have developed simple, practical, evidence-based, award-winning technologies that implement this skill set in the most cost effective ways. HeartMath has become the industry gold standard for stress and resilience solutions.
