The Student Counseling Center offers training in using HeartMath, which is a science-based biofeedback technology that is proven to increase inner balance and self-security. HeartMath Inner Balance devices pair with your mobile device via bluetooth to help you gain awareness of stress within your body in order to regulate your physical responses. This may be useful for things like reducing anxiety, enhancing performance, improving sleep, and more. HeartMath devices are available for check-out for 30 days at a time, with the support of a counselor at the SCC.
