It's personal. Stress steals your sleep, kills your productivity, trashes your performance, spurs on your anxiety, creates chronic & recurring pain, & makes you miss out on family, activities, & life in general.
Studies indicate some 90% of illness is stress-related. Doctors say ⅔ of their patients’ appointments are due to stress and its destructive, long-term erosion of their health.
So what’s the secret?
I’ve learned a few things in my 21 years as a massage therapist and wellness educator, but probably the most important piece is this… one size does not fit all. It’s all about individual context. You are the center of Your world. That means Your life is Your business. (and yes, I’m capitalizing You intentionally ;) By extension, Your life also happens in Your own unique context.
Stress management and reduction programs are lacking because they fail to bridge the gap between the science, the strategies, and You, the individual. Many are good for people, but not persons. Information and tactics don't work without strategy and context.
My (r)evolutionary new Stresstoration program empowers you to take your life back; taming your stress, restoring your balance and letting you thrive. Here, we believe relief is a far better form of relaxation - and you need to know how to achieve the stress relief you're seeking!
You will find out:
Get your baseline and learn to evaluate as you go to improve and see progress.
Develop your customized strategy & target recovery activities. A Plan! Learn how to adapt your plan as your life changes.
Build Resilience (Stressilience)
Your long-term plan for enduring Quality of Life. Reap the Rewards!
There’s a billion books, resources, and courses on stress out there, so why Stresstoration?
It’s simple… to answer the same questions I get asked every day:
Over the years, I’ve realized my training, experience, and research has culminated in a unique perspective in dealing with stress. Digging deeper, I found there is a gap in books or programs that not only offer this perspective, but that empower people to actually deal with stress. In other words, there is a lot of talk without a lot that can be put into action. Or sometimes worse, there’s a lot of actions that you can’t choose between or prioritize.
Science is great, but as I said before, it does a much better job at addressing people, not persons - and besides, the books and informational resources out there often present great science, but are vague in what to do with it. Many tips and tricks to deal with stress out there are also great, but will they work for you? How do they fit into your plan?
Stresstoration’s secret sauce is in empowering you with the knowhow and the plan - to bridge the gap between knowledge and action.
