Stress Relief in austin

An acute stress reaction is something that our bodies are designed to deal with and is healthy in the right amount. If you are running from a bear, you want stress hormones to take over so you can run faster, breathe harder and pause digestive & reproductive function.

However, high stress over a long period of time is not something our bodies are equipped to handle. Chronically elevated stress hormones have impacts on digestive function, mental health & clarity, sleep, cardiovascular health, muscular tension… virtually every system in your body is affected by high stress over a long period.

Our approach focuses on helping reset the patient’s stress response to bring you out of “fight or flight.” Our proven techniques teach the nervous system how to quickly get out of a stress response and strengthen it’s ability to do so more easily over time so the chronic stress patterns can be avoided.
