Stress mentoring is a 60 or 90 minute consultation in which I help you understand and prioritize your current stressors. Together, we design an individualized stress management plan that is tailored to your needs, personality, and lifestyle. I will also help you develop a strategy that empowers you to implement your new plan. The plan will contain both stress relief (reactive) and stress reduction (proactive) strategies for a complete system of stress management.
Learn from my experience! It took me almost 5 years to begin to get a handle on the overwhelming amount of stress I had in my own life when I began pursuing a career in massage. I was working close to 70 hours per week, commuting 45 miles each way, and trying to please everyone (except myself). My shoulders and neck were like concrete and I had several chronic medical conditions. With the help of every affordable resource I could find (and a few that weren’t so affordable), I was finally able to piece together my own stress management plan. Since then, I have radically reduced the stress in my own life as well as drastically reformed my response to stress. I am no longer bothered by any of the chronic conditions that once plagued me, either. Since helping myself, I’ve gone on to help many of my massage clients better manage their stress as well.
Now, I’ve created a system out of the informal help I’ve been giving clients over the last 10+ years. With this intensive stress management session (or series of sessions), I guarantee it won’t take 5 years to get you on the road to better stress management.
