According to a recent American Psychological Association poll, nearly a quarter of Americans confessed to currently feeling under “extreme stress.” Respondents especially blamed money, work, and the economy.
When individuals are routinely under assault—over money, health woes, a daily freeway commute, whatever—a biological system that was designed to occasionally fight or flee a predator gets markedly out of balance.
“The body’s delicate feedback system starts to malfunction,” says David Spiegel, director of the Center on Stress and Health at Stanford University.
Another fact to consider are the poor habits people readily adopt during periods of prolonged tension. “People who are under stress are more likely to gain weight and to smoke, and are less likely to sleep well or exercise,” which can lead to cardiovascular and other diseases.
Help is here to support you during these times and as preventative care schedule a relaxation and tension relief therapy session.
Why should you schedule a session as soon as possible, the relaxation response help people to counteract the toxic effects of chronic stress by slowing breathing rate, relaxing muscles, and reducing blood pressure.
The goal of this therapy is to produce a deep state of tranquility to quiet and calm the mind, body, and spirit.
