The best way I can tell you about the EmWave stress management techniques tool is to give you my personal story. Some friends gave me one of these very cool devices for my 60th birthday. I was really excited to receive it, because I was familiar with the Institute of HeartMath and I knew it would be excellent because they created it.
But--I didn't think I needed it! I'm a pretty relaxed guy, and have practiced meditation for many years. I regularly teach classes and write on the topic of stress management and stress management strategies. My health is good and always has been, so I naturally assumed that my stress level was low on a consistent basis.
I was wrong! When I first started using the EmWave, I was amazed to find that I had to really concentrate to lower my stress on Challenge Level 1, and had very little success with Challenge Level 2--and there are 4 Challenge Levels! My learning started immediately.

These stress management techniques known generally as self-improvement and spiritual practice are highly beneficial to stress management, anger management and overall well being. Benefits of a spiritual practice include:
The benefits of self-help are tremendous! Think about it...if you don't help yourself, who is going to? If you really neglect yourself, somebody else might have to take care of you. Worst case is hospital staff, police or prison guards. Not pleasant. So! Self-help is a great thing, and there are a tremendous array of skills you can attain. When you help and care for yourself, you are:
Of all the stress management techniques I could suggest to you, the best would be to develop a spiritual practice and dive deeply into the realm of self help and self improvement.
