Stress Reduction

The body, mind and spirit are not only a continuum, but they are inseparable.  In a broad perspective, all illness is the result of some type of stress being experienced creating an imbalance in the body, mind spirit continuum.  On a physical level, Optimal Wellness follows only when you address the major stressors in your life and work to reduce them.

Recognizing the connection between the mind, body, and spirit, and working to reduce stress both physically and mentally is a core element of holistic or integrative medicine and a benefit of becoming a patient at Optimal Wellness.  The clinicians are trained to help you identify the sources of stress in your life and develop strategies for minimizing them.  Conventional medicine does not often recognize the full connection between stress and illness/disease, and therefore the health benefits of reducing stress.
