Stress in moderation can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. However, if you’re stuck in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price. If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance.

Stress causes the body to think it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action.

Stress can cost you your job, relationship, marriage, sanity and wellbeing. People typically look at the cost of stress from a business perspective, whereby it is estimated to cost US business over 300 billion a year in absenteeism and lost productivity.

What Clients Are Saying

“Working with Lorie was SUCH a good decision. Lorie brings excellent balance to her work: she’s highly professional yet incredibly warm and personable, and her approach is grounded in science but leaves plenty of room for your brain to work its “magic.” With her guidance, I was able to make significant progress in working through some of the artificial barriers I set for myself, and to get certain beliefs to “click” about things that I have know logically to be true but could not emotionally accept. Our work together shifted my mindset and energy about what is possible and what is in my control — I managed to have a major breakthrough action or epiphany after each one of our sessions and continue to feel more energetic, positive and inspired than I have in years. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and continue to refer her far and wide. Thank you, Lorie!”
