Stress is an inescapable constant in our working lives, and research shows that cumulative stress contributes to as much as 90 percent of all acute and chronic health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, hypertension, depression, sleep disorders, lowered immune response, headaches, mood swings, and chronic fatigue.

To help address these crippling issues, Equilibrium Energy + Education focuses on corporate services that help employees and executives manage stress, improving the health and well being of the individual as well as the bottom line. Our goal is to help you achieve a new, self-perpetuating vitality for both the organization and the individual.

Our stress management training is based on proven, research-based techniques in mind-body medicine. All techniques are specifically designed for immediate use on the job, in the moment stress occurs. They are easy-to-learn, personally empowering tools to improve physical and emotional health, personal satisfaction, and productivity, no matter how stressful the workplace may be.


INSTANT CALM: How to Stop Stress in Three Minutes or Less

Our best-selling, most affordable workshop! INSTANT CALM: How to Stop Stress in Three Minutes or Less is an empowering 60-minute wellness workshop that teaches employees how to instantly shift the mental, physical and emotional turmoil of work-related stress.

Research shows that just 5 minutes of stress, anger or other extreme, negative emotion launches a cortisol spill – the most damaging stress chemical – into the body for 8 hoursor more! The challenge is to stop stress before that cortisol spill can occur.

So employees learn a range of techniques for stopping stress immediately, in the moment it happens at work, and to be happier, healthier, more balanced and productive, even under the most stressful workplace conditions.

Based on proven, research-based mind-body medicine principles, the INSTANT CALM workshop leads employees through the experience of a range of proven mind-body techniques for achieving immediate relaxation. They feel the results on the spot while learning the techniques, and see for themselves how quickly they can regain emotional balance and mental clarity – literally in three minutes or less.

At the end of the workshop, employees match which techniques they just learned will be best suited for handling each of their most stressful work situations, so they leave with an action plan to implement immediately.
