Heart Rate Variability Assessment

Heart rate variability analysis for the autonomic nervous system

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a physiological variation of heart rate controlled by the autonomic nervous system.

Your body reacts to almost everything happening around you through your emotions, observations, thoughts and activity. Your brain guides the body by regulating the heart and other organs through the autonomic nervous system. Measuring heart rate variation reveals a wide range of information about your body and health, including level of stress. HRV can reflect changes in stress level, while other parameters such as blood pressure are still in normal and accepted ranges.

I work with the most accurate and sophisticated assessment system, which uses artificial intelligence technology to provide HRV analysis for quantitative assessment of the autonomic nervous system. It is a non-invasive, fully computer-based system, which recognises up to 81 different variations in the relationship between sympathetic and parasympathetic activities. Sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are the two systems that comprise the autonomic nervous system.

This method of assessment is applicable to many fields of clinical practice, including sports, corporate health, relaxation training and psychotherapy, and I can use it before and after your treatment as an additional tool to evaluate your state of health and your progress.
