Why is it called HeartMath?

HeartMath is based on research into the algorithms of the heart – or the “math” of the heart.  “The word “heart” has meaning to almost everyone, of course. When we think of “heart”, we think of the physical heart as well as qualities such as wisdom, love, compassion, courage and strength – the higher aspects of all human beings. The word “math” resonates with most people as well. In the context of “HeartMath,” it refers to the stepping stones of the system – the nuts-and-bolts approach to systematically unfolding “heart” qualities. I also refers to physiological and psychological equations for accessing and developing the incredible potential of the heart.” The HeartMath Solution.
