Wounded healer case report of HeartMath zone experience associated with sport injury
This heuristic phenomenological case study was motivated by reoccurrences of longstanding sports injury issues among athletes. It reports on HeartMath zone experiences of a wounded healer managing his own chronic sport injuries. Zone healing experiences were unexpectedly associated with significant increases in psychophysiological coherence as measured on HeartMath technology. In addition to the intrinsic motivational quality of the healing experiences, reflexivity provided further motivation to report the data for their original, illustrative, health promotion value. The healing experiences and their measurement are described and discussed, with special reference to the wounded healer, HeartMath and coherent zone phenomena.
Keywords: Case study, sport injuries, wounded healer, HeartMath zone, heuristic phenomenology.
