Neuroscience + Psychotherapy: Dr. Eric Chamberlin

HRV allows an individual to stimulate the cardiovascular system at its resonant frequency for a sustained period of time. Deep breathing, visualization, and meditation are all useful complimentary clinical tools, however they lack this critical property. Stimulation at the resonant frequency strengthens the baro-reflex, resulting in enhanced physical and psychological resilience by influencing heart rate, blood pressure, vascular resistance, pain threshold, central nervous system processing, mood, and attention. Analogous to physical conditioning, the baro-reflex can be thought of as the “muscle” of core Mind-Body strength.
