In brief: Yes
If your fast heart rate is due to normal mechanisms, relaxation techniques like yoga, self-hypnosis, slow breaths, etc will work.
If it's due to supraventricular tachycardia, valsalva maneuvers like bearing down (like having a bm) sometimes helps. If it's due to atrial fibrillation, there's nothing you can do by yourself. If it's due to rarer causes, you definitely need to see a cardiologist!

In brief: Not really
The differential diagnosis of tachycardia (rapid heart rate) is broad and is dependent on the rhythm your hear is in.
There are some serious causes so i would advise you to see your primary care provider about this to determine the cause and therapy.
