Stress/Biofeedback Clinic

In the Stress Clinic, relaxation training and strategies for reducing anxiety are available for the tense or test-anxious student. Biofeedback equipment and stress management recording are incorporated into classes where students can create tailored stress management plans for themselves. 

Stress involves more than tense muscles. Nevertheless, effective stress management begins with bodily relaxation because it is difficult to feel or behave at ease when the body is tense. Tension points can range from tight shoulder muscles, to a rumbling stomach to grinding teeth. But it is only when tension buildup erupts via a headache or upset stomach that we finally become aware of this tension. Unfortunately, by then the physical damage has already occurred. Even more important, once tension has reached this high level, it is difficult to reduce. During the Stress Clinic classes, students will be exposed to various stress reduction techniques and exercises.  Through the use of biofeedback equipment, students will learn which skills are most effective for combating their unique stress response.
