Bruce Cryer has spent more than thirty years training and coaching innovative approaches to maximizing health and human performance. He was named President and CEO of HeartMath in 2000, having helped launch the non-profit Institute of HeartMath with founder Doc Childre in 1991.
Bruce was the key architect of programs that incorporate HeartMath’s innovative biomedical research into practical tools and strategies to enhance health, performance, creativity, innovation, and productivity for both the individual and the organization.
