This promotes greater mind-body awareness with real-time data to support the connection between emotional states, thinking patterns and bodily function; including heart rate, heart rate variability and nervous system responding. Each of these bodily systems are greatly affected by long term exposure to energy depletion states, such as anxiety, stress, depression, and pain.
