Getting a new job or promotion? Getting married? Having a baby? What about getting a divorce or losing your job? Have you lost a loved one? Stress can be defined as mental or emotional tension resulting from positive or negative events or changes. Symptoms can include difficulty concentrating, sleeplessness, forgetfulness, anxiety, depression, or anger.
If stress reduction techniques are not implemented, then physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, or unexplained aches and pains may begin to appear. If the stress continues long term, the body’s immune system weakens making a person more prone to infections and illnesses. Chronic conditions begin to develop such as heart disease, cancer, or diabetes.
Biofeedback also called Electrophysiological Response (EPR) biofeedback is a stress reduction, pain management, and muscle retraining technology that helps to improve health by reducing stress in the body. It works by sending and receiving information to the areas of the body that are showing stress. It is a non-invasive, relaxing technique that helps the client to learn and change their responses to stress. If you are interested in learning more about this technology, please contact Chrissy.
