Stress Is Making Our Kids Sick

We all experience stress. For some of us, those everyday stressors add up to a point where they impact our health and well-being. That’s where StressWell comes in.

Our children and teens are seeing an epidemic of mental, emotional, and physical complaints. Anxiety, allergies, learning difficulties, and other chronic illnesses are all at all-time highs. At StressWell, we want to get at the root causes to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for long-lasting vitality and wellness. Using integrative and precision medicine approaches, we partner with you and your child on stress-related tools and interventions to fit your needs. This could include a broad range of supports such as breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, art projects, parent and/or teen coaching, ear acupuncture, guided imagery, and neurofeedback.

Did you know...

That stress doesn’t just reside in your mind? It physically alters our brains and bodies.

Traditional Western medicine is often unable to address these conditions satisfactorily, and many families feel as though they are playing “whack-a-mole” with every new symptom. Traditional allopathic or Western medicine is about symptom suppression instead of asking WHY and getting to the root cause. If you think your child or teen may be helped by our StressWell approach – or if you are unsure and curious – contact us! We want to be part of the solution.

“After trying every single modality and exhausting our options with Kaiser, we were at our wits end trying to help our child. As a desperate parent, I was willing to do anything for my 10-year-old daughter who was severely struggling with depression and anxiety. The StressWell Team was the miracle that surpassed my biggest hopes. They spent an incredible amount of time to comprehensively learn about every aspect of my daughter and our family and seek to understand not just a single cause but the systems at play that were contributing to her anxiety and depression. For the first time, my daughter was regarded and treated holistically and for that reason, she is now healthy, thriving, and is as happy as can be. We owe everything to Dr. Getzelman, Dr. Gilgoff and the StressWell team. We can’t sing their praises enough!”
