If you suffer from chronic stress you may notice it affecting many areas of your life. Stress can have a profound impact physically, mentally, and emotionally.


Physically, stress can manifest as headaches, muscle tension, fatigue, and digestive issues, among other symptoms.


Mentally, it can lead to increased anxiety, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and memory problems.


Emotionally, stress can result in feelings of overwhelm, moodiness, and a sense of being unable to cope.


Over time, chronic stress can weaken the immune system, increase the risk of developing mental health disorders like anxiety and depression, and contribute to the onset or exacerbation of physical health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and gastrointestinal disorders.

The answers to why you are stressed can be complicated and difficult to identify. The good news is that the answers can be easily and gently accessed through your subconscious mind and that is where Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery® can help.


SMGI® offers a unique, personalized and multifaceted approach to alleviating chronic stress by integrating the mind-body connection. By using this technique individuals activate the body's relaxation response, reducing levels of stress hormones like cortisol. It can help individuals observe their bodily sensations without judgment, fostering a greater sense of self-awareness and emotional regulation. 

SMGI® also aids in the regulation of the nervous system, helping individuals restore balance and resilience to stressors by finding the core issues causing the stress. Through regular sessions, individuals can develop greater self-awareness, emotional regulation skills, and coping strategies, empowering them to manage chronic stress more effectively and cultivate a greater sense of well-being.

I offer free consultations if you have questions or want to know more about how SMGI® can help you in your personal goals towards health and healing.
