Stress-Management Strategies

Stress plays a big role in disease. It suppresses the immune system, can lead to a heart attack or stroke, and is an important contributor to chronic anxiety, depressive disorders, panic attacks and insomnia. We at HeartWise always utilize a holistic approach to both illness and wellness. Counseling our patients on simple but useful stress management techniques such as deep breathing, visualizations, and meditation can make a major difference in their health and well-being.
