Stress Assessment

Ever feel constantly stressed? You may have tried meditation in the past but found it didn’t work for you, if that’s the case read on.


Your ability to feel stress is vital to your survival. The problem we have is that your brain is very good at getting better at what you tell it to repeatedly do. When you are repeatedly exposed to stress your body starts to make you stress dominant.


In a stress dominant state your sympathetic nervous system becomes over active which will cause you to;


  • Slow down your metabolism = weight gain
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Disrupt your sleep patterns
  • Feel fatigued
  • Depressed and anxious


The good news is that you can teach your brain to recover and adapt to a normal unstressed state. What we need to do is to assess your stress systems with a Heart Rate Variability assessment to find out exactly how your body reacts to stress.


By finding out how your body reacts to stress we can develop a tailored neuro-rehabilitation program to help your body quickly and effectively return to a normal un-stressed state.


The test itself involves wearing a heart rate band while a program assess the fluctuations to your heart rate as you are;


  • Laying comfortably
  • Sitting
  • Standing
  • Deep breathing
  • Performing a valsalva (core contraction) maneuver.


Dr Eric Hansen and the team at Brain and Body Health are one of the few clinics with access to detailed heart rate variability equipment and that have the training in Neuro-Rehabilitation necessary to develop the tailored approach to your therapy.
