With natural change in life comes stress. Whether it is from the loss of a job or the grind of work, school, or even interpersonal relationships, high levels of stress can be maladaptive, causing significant physical reactions that can truly impair a person’s life.

At Healing Connections, our stress management therapy teaches a variety of skills specifically intended to reduce stress and thereby eliminate the physiological and somatic responses of our clients, including:

  • Self-care skills
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Breathing exercises
  • Body-centered exercises – This can include tai chi, stretching, and yoga, all of which can take place in group settings.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation
  • Visualization
  • Sound therapy
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) – This information processing therapy can help maximize treatment effects.
