DE-STRESS WITH DR. INGRID
Transform Your Stress Into Vitality
Do you know that stress from chasing deadlines in your job and life might be connected to your frequent headaches, chronic pains, recurrent colds, insomnia or have a hard time concentrating?
Well, I treat, coach and teach busy and unwell middle-age professionals, mindful parents and active retirees skills to manage their stress so they can improve their health and life.
My "de-stress" journey started about ten years ago after a car accident, which left me debilitating pain and the inability to perform basic daily tasks such as brushing teeth, combing my hair, or holding a book. I had a great team of doctors and holistic therapists working with me multiple times per week, but I didn't improve. I did everything they asked, but my body, mind and emotions were stubbornly resisting all efforts to get better.
Out of sheer desperation, I went to a yoga studio and took the "easiest" class they offered - restorative yoga class. To my immense surprise, it was very gentle yoga with a few poses and a lot of meditation, which eased my aching body's discomfort.
And I realized that deep meditation switching my stress or "fight or flight" response to "rest and restore" was a missing link in my recovery program. I could not get better because I was in chronic stress caused by the accident and never-ending two years of pain.
