80% of complaints shared with doctors are the result of stress rather than illness.  Most people are not sick, they are stressed!

Reducing stress reduces headaches, sleep issues, digestive problems and more.  Reducing stress creates an immediate increase in quality of life.

Reducing stress helps to relieve existing medical problems.  For example, an individual with epilepsy has the potential to lower their stress and experience fewer seizures.

StressWinner curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. David Rainham, an internationally recognized expert on the subject of stress reduction.

StressWinner is simple and easy to implement because it provides so many options.  Like walking through a grocery store, participants are able to find the strategies that are the best fit for their lives.

Simple steps that radically reduce stress.

Stress is a normal and healthy response to the challenges we face in life, but it can go out of balance and start having a negative impact on our physical and mental health.  Instead of feeling energized and challenged we begin to feel burned out and overwhelmed.

StressWinner Stress Reduction Training helps participants identify where their stress is coming from, how it is currently affecting their health, and what they can do about it now.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES:

  • Reduced feelings of illness, pain, and stress
  • Reduced fear, anxiety, and panic attacks
  • Reduced use of sick days, absenteeism, and turnover
  • Notably improved physical and mental health in the following weeks
  • Increased quality of life
  • Increased clarity and energy to engage with the team
