Heart Rate Variability Testing

WHAT IS HEART RATE VARIABILITY TESTING

ASSESS AUTONOMIC/AUTOMATIC NERVOUS SYSTEM PROCESSES, IDENTIFY TO IMPROVE FUNCTION

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) testing evaluates what is a balancing act between your sympathetic nervous system – the internal fight and flight response – and the parasympathetic nervous system – rest and digest.

 

An imbalance in HRV is a prime factor for sudden death by heart attack. The simple hand electro-sensor test at the Body and Mind Clinic gives you a report on the balance between your heart and your nervous system in just a few minutes.

 

The interest in HRV has grown year on year, particularly as the technology involved to register such can now be incorporated in a smartphone – but self-analysis is not really recommended and the test is best carried out with an expert who can analyse any existing problems revealed in the results. He can then advise on a health care regime to improve your life.

 

HRV reflects the variation in time between each heartbeat and HRV-guided training is recommended for effective aerobic performance than any pre-planned training. Perhaps more importantly, HRV testing is recognised as a predictor of illness in those who seek moderate exercising and athletes alike. In clinic conditions, HRV can be accurately measured during ultra-short durations (one minute) and are carried out either in a supine (lying down), seated, or standing position.
