Stress Management

More and more research is being published every day which indicates the impact stress has on our bodies and minds. Keesha uses several tools to teach her patients to reverse the effects stress has had on their bodies, to break the hormonal cycle already in place in the form of learned behavior and neurotransmitter pathways, and to create new, healthier patterns for handling the inevitable stress inducing events that life will throw our way.

One of the tools she uses is the EM-Wave Personal Stress Reliever from Heart Math. This well researched, handy little tool helps her clients take an active role in stress management and dealing with emotions associated with stress to improve health and wellness.

The technology is based on learning to change the heart rhythm pattern and create physiological coherence in the body. It teaches internal awareness, self-regulation and emotional management skills so her clients learn to reduce stress and increase health and wellness by becoming aware of when the stress response starts and by stopping it in the moment, resulting in positive and enduring personal changes.

Other tools used and taught at Fern Life Center are cognitive behavioral techniques, breathing practices, yoga, meditation, and other tools for the spirit.
