Heart intelligence links the physical heart to the spiritual (energetic) heart. Through its extensive communication with the brain and body, the heart is intimately involved in how we think, feel, and respond to the world.

Physician, Philosopher, Creator of Stressclin - dealing with prevention and treatment of stress
Edmilson is a doctor and Master in the area of digestive surgery. Over the years he often did not get the expected result in a treatment, even using the best medicines. He concluded that in addition to the digestive tract, there was a person with deeper pains and anguish and the physical problem in the digestive tract was only the tip of the iceberg. In order to integrate and deepen his knowledge of the human being, he undertook postgraduate studies in Pedagogy in Systemic Neuro-linguistic Programming and pursued a degree in philosophy. He could then see that the cause of the physical problems presented by the patients was stress. He then had the idea of a clinic in partnership with professionals who had the same holistic vision of the patient. He then created Stressclin, an integrated stress prevention and treatment clinic aimed at a deeper understanding of the human being.
