Juggling the day-to-day life commitments can quickly induce stress in any individual. There are many holistic ways to reduce tension and relax. Finding healthy methods to reduce stress is essential in
guaranteeing long-term stress relief. Negative methods can temporarily reduce stress but cause more in the long run. Our goal with holistic wellness is to inspire you with healthy strategies that work to relieve your stress.

Stressful events called stressors can boil up within us, causing increased stress levels. Without stress management, this can cause stress to become pent up in the body. When this distress builds up, it is hard to decipher that a bunch of random stressors have built up within you, causing more stress than necessary. You can start to think that this stress is a natural part of your personality.

The Patient Experience


Haley is AMAZING at everything she does! She is very knowledgeable, sweet and always looks out for everyones best interests.. I always look forward to sitting in her chair!! I can’t wait for my next visit!!

Out of the several injectors I’ve went to, Haley Outcalt is by far the most talented, knowledgeable and professional. Though I’ve gotten botox on several occasions, this was my first time getting lip injections- I was nervous and excited. My lip results are absolute perfection, they are so beautiful and natural looking.

Types of Stress

Minimizing chronic and acute stress can make drastic changes in your life. There are two main types of stress: physical and mental/ emotional.

Physical Stress

Physical stress can be caused by self-infliction and involuntarily accumulated in the body. There are many man-made stressors and chemicals in foods, skincare, and other easily accessible products. These toxins can build up in your cells, putting the body at risk for developing diseases. Other physical factors that influence stress levels include poor sleep, misbalanced exercise daily, poor diet, illness, chronic pain, inflammation, and substance abuse. When we are triggered by mental stress, the body can also respond. The body’s immediate physical responses to stress include increased heart rate, sped-up breathing, tight muscles, and heightened blood pressure. Healthy habits, coping mechanisms, and natural body detoxification can all reduce the physical effects of stress on the body.

Mental Stress

Mental and emotional stress comes from negative feelings in the mind and body. When you receive a mental or physical stress trigger, this can overlap with another category. For example, when you are tired or hungry, you may experience emotional frustration and exhaustion in response to the physical trigger. Calming the mind can disarm you from your mental and emotional stress triggers. Tools for calming the mind include meditation, mindfulness, and counseling. Awareness of your stressors and stress tools can influence how you respond to stress.
