emWave® Technology

Available for purchase in the bookstore. You can also try out the emWave on the computer in the bookstore.

Information on the emWave from the HeartMath® website: Used just a few minutes a day, this simple-to-use technology helps you transform feelings of anger, anxiety or frustration into more peace, ease and clarity. emWave technology collects pulse data through a pulse sensor and translates the information from your heart rhythms into graphics on your computer or into easy to follow lights on the portable emWave2. As you practice on the go or at your computer, you increase your coherence baseline and your ability to take charge of your emotional reactions.
