I love using HeartMath to really get to the root of my patients' stress-related issues. I feel that this particular type of biofeedback, which uses guided intervention in heart rate variability patterning, gets to the bottom of issues which are so prevalent in our society.
I'll give you a quick overview on this technique, though you're always welcome to call for a complimentary 10 minute introductory appointment if you would like to meet me and talk further about how I can help you realize a better state of health.
So first, why would someone use HeartMath? Well, one of the most common reasons is a stress-related condition, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, hypertension, chronic pain and most emotionally-related ailments. Read through this infographic to see the many faces of stress and what havoc it wrecks on your body:
If the image above is a little blurry, here's the original
. So how does HeartMath work? What is it doing? It's harnessing your innate heart-brain connection
, and using that internal power for good (i.e. relaxation and restoration) instead of evil (i.e. panic attacks and out of control emotions). It is optimizing the communication between your nervous, hormone and immune systems to balance out any mis-signaling.
Through this process you will learn to identify and remove all internal signals that, perhaps subconsciously, are working against you instead of for you. The end result? Some common effects are increased happiness, more positive outlook on life, little or no stress reaction from what was before stress-inducing issues (work, relationships, finances), a full release from prior feelings of overwhelm and burnout and the ability to finally overcome a physical or hormonal issue (like those listed in the graphic above) just to name a few. This technique is simple, powerful, and transformative. Everyone should give it a try.
So how does this whole process work? You can learn from the decades of research and look up conditions and information important to you on the HeartMath
website. They offer biofeedback devices to anyone, though working with a healthcare professional such as myself ensures proper monitoring, assistance and its optimal placement within a comprehensive wellness approach.
At Rose City Health Clinic, we use HeartMath biofeedback during office visits for those who could benefit from its use as well as offer shorter stand-alone sessions. To best learn and implement the biofeedback techniques in your everyday life above and beyond the few times I guide you through the process, most patients benefit from an initial round of 4-6 sessions which will be part of an all-inclusive integrative plan where all your healthcare issues are addressed and attended to.
HeartMath sessions are now available at Rose City Health clinic. Please call 503-960-2162to make an appointment or to get an answer for any questions you may have.

I'd like to introduce you to the name chosen to represent the idea which has been years in the crafting. After more than a year of brainstorming, I have decided upon what might seem like a logical, straightforward name based upon geographic location- but I like to think that there's more than meets the eye.
I had a pretty lofty goal: one name which represents all the ideas, philosophy and goals that I would like my professional career to engender- while also being short, catchy, and easy to understand. Pages and pages of names brainstormed, bubbling up to the surface in a moment, to be discarded the next. Too foofy, too girly, too obtuse, too hippy, too difficult to spell or pronounce correctly- each name had a downfall.
From the beginning, local/geographical names appealed to me but for the most part are existing clinics themselves: Northwest this, Portland that, Cascade, Oregon- none were quite right. After so many months of mulling it over, I had the feeling that when the right name showed up to my brainstorming sessions I'll know it. And last month, it happened just like that.
I'm not sure what prompted the particular train of thought, but thinking back on different historical names for the region led me to Portland often being called the City of Roses, or the Rose City. The name just stuck. I couldn't get it out of my head. I loved the ring of it, and quickly went to the Oregon business name database to check its availability. Surprisingly (as has been said by more than a few friends and family members) it was mine for the taking- so I took the plunge and registered my first-ever business identity.
As an explanation for what the name means to me, I have quite a few. Growing up in Portland, the name "City of Roses" and "Rose City" has appeared my life frequently. A few of these memories are playing in a marching band in the Junior Rose Festival as a youth and learning to play tee-ball from my grandpa at Rose City Park. Roses in general evoke memories with my grandmother in Salem. She and I are both June babies (rose is the flower for June), and she has many varieties of roses growing along her front path. The smell of roses reminds me of both her house and her mother's house- who also grew scores of roses on her property.
Although a flowery name was more "girly" than I intended, the rose and "Rose City" imagery was just too perfect to pass up. I hope you enjoy my future clinic's name and please feel free to leave me any comments below. Thank you for your support!
