Give the Gift of Less Stress with HeartMath's emWave Personal Stress Reliever®

A unique stress relief technology comes as a popular holiday gift choice and it has also caught the attention of several celebrities.

Boulder Creek, CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2010

If you're tired of buying the same old gifts every year and need something unique that shows you care, give the gift of less stress with an emWave Personal Stress Reliever®.

Whether it's your spouse, boss, roommate, or one of your kids - when they're stressed it affects you too. This distinctive gift idea combines the advantage of a sleek, mobile technology with the zen-like benefits of learning to quiet a racing mind and calm frayed nerves.

The emWave Personal Stress Reliever (PSR) developed by HeartMath®, world leaders in scientifically validated stress solutions, is a cool lifestyle device that is fun yet practical and it has won numerous awards. More than 10,000 health professionals use the emWave technologies across the U. S. to help patients reduce stress and anxiety.

Stress is a huge energy zapper -- it can drain us, leave us irritable, cause insomnia, contribute to that spare tire around the waist, raise blood pressure, and the list of undesirable affects goes on. Whatever the outcome may be, stress can go on for a while before we realize how much it is impacting us.

HeartMath's emWave technology trains the user to shift out of stress on demand. The emWave PSR ($199) is based on nearly 20 years of research on the critical link between emotions, heart function and cognitive performance.

The emWave PSR teaches the user to access a high-performance state called coherence. Coherence refers to a mental and emotional state people experience when the body's systems become synchronized. Specifically, coherence means that the heart, brain and nervous system operate in more harmony and efficiency. Simply stated, more coherence equals improved energy, more resilience and less stress.

Weighing just 2.2 ounces with dimensions a little smaller than an iPod, emWave PSR reads heart rhythms through its built-in finger sensor and gives immediate feedback. The device reflects the emotional state through changing colored lights and sound. The emWave PSR also includes a hands-free option and an animated instructional CD-Rom that guides the user through HeartMath's Quick Coherence® Technique for immediate stress relief.

This unique stress relief device has caught the attention of many celebrities including Annalynne McCord, known for her role as Eden Lord on the FX television series Nip/Tuck, and Mark Salling known as Puck on the Golden Globe Award winning series Glee.

McCord said, "This (emWave) is amazing. Public speaking makes me crazy. I need my emWave."

Salling tried the emWave at a recent charity event and was fascinated by its possibilities. Salling said, "Get out! This is so cool. This would be great to have on set."

HeartMath also offers a computer version of this technology called the emWave® Desktop ($299). The desktop version incorporates the same technology as the PSR, with a number of additional features.

The emWave Desktop is used with a home computer (PC or Mac) and allows you to store and track your progress over time and review previously recorded sessions (see demo video.) The program includes three colorful, interactive games designed to train you to create a positive emotional shift and learn to transform stress into creative energy. Another feature of emWave Desktop is its Emotion Visualizer® which provides stunning images that emit varying degrees of color and movement as you adjust your emotional state.

The emWave Desktop comes with a USB Interface, an ear clip sensor that connects to your computer and collects data from your heart. The program then translates information from your heart rhythms into user-friendly graphics displayed on your computer screen. As you apply the stress-reducing Quick Coherence Technique learned from the tutorial, you see your heart rhythms change in real time.

HeartMath's emWave technology has won the Award for Distinction and Innovation from the American Institute of Stress. It has also earned recognition from consumers as the winner of 2009's prestigious Last Gadget Standing People's Choice Competition, which represents the best of the best at the Consumer Electronic Show.

The hand-held emWave PSR and emWave Desktop are priced comparable to other electronics offered this holiday season, but developers say the technology costs a nominal price for the health and lifestyle benefits it can provide.

The emWave products can be purchased on http://www. amazon. com, or through the developer's online store http://www. heartmathstore. com.
