Stress, Chronic Stress, and Anxiety

Updated: Oct 6, 2023

In the simplest terms, stress is a demand placed on your physical body or your mind.

Stress can be triggered by an event that makes you feel uneasy or nervous. Anxiety is the feeling of fear or worry. It can be a reaction to stress, or many times felt by people that find it difficult to identify the source of stress in their lives. Chronic stress, which persists over a long period of time, can be overwhelming.

Both anxiety and stress and can produce both psychological and physical symptoms. Common physical symptoms include:

Joseph R. Giove Clinical Hypnosis  |  San Francisco Bay Area

People who have stress and anxiety over long periods of time may experience negative related health outcomes.

We have noted before that we take about 20,000 breaths a day. As mentioned, we must transform our default breathing pattern to be deep, rhythmic and smooth, to best deal with stress.

We will help you employ breathing practices that can produce instant stress reduction and improve energy levels, mental clarity and emotional balance.

During private sessions, Hypnosis will be used to help re-pattern the unconscious breathing constriction reflex that occurs under stress.
