Many people have benefited from the HeartMath technique. Some teach themselves with the help of the HeartMath books, and some use the instructions given with the emWave® PC (formerly the Freeze Framer) or with the portable emWave® Personal Stress Reliever®. To achieve lasting benefits, HeartMath Benelux also offers specialized guidance to help you integrate those techniques into your daily life.
“Since I’ve been using HeartMath, I feel more in touch with my emotions, but less controlled by them.”
You can choose from a broad range of courses, work shops and training programs. The programs vary from a short morning or afternoon introduction to a three-day training to become a licensee. For more information read Workshops.
In addition, HeartMath Benelux has a pool of one-on-one providers, all of whom are (health care) professionals trained in the HeartMath techniques. These professionals coach individual clients who want to improve their way of performing. (see List of 1:1 Providers). For more details on what our Providers have to offer, please see below.

‘HeartMath is a unique stress reduction system that is unusually effective for reducing anxiety and improving performance. Unlike many other products and services that make similar claims, it has a solid scientific basis and has been thoroughly tested in a variety of settings that have clearly demonstrated these benefits.‘
Paul J. Rosch, M.D., F.A.C.P., President of the American Institute of Stress and Clinical Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry, New York Medical College.
‘The HeartMath program has allowed me to easily de-stress myself amidst the numerous challenges and opportunities that are part of any leader's daily regimen. Since the HeartMath training, I find I can respond to the deluge of demands and priorities with more focus and near absence of agitation, and therefore far more readily make well-reasoned, thoughtful decisions.’
Jack Peterson, Vice President, Performance Improvement & OD Services, Sierra Providence Hospital Network (a Tenet Hospital)
‘Don't underestimate the power of HeartMath tools. Their simplicity and ease of use are compelling in today's roller coaster world. In our online, wired lives HeartMath gives us a way to reclaim control and regain clarity about the "who, what, when, where and why" that can get lost when we move at internet speed.’
Buddy Teaster, Chief Networking Officer, Young Presidents Organization
