What makes The Denver Stress Clinic different?
Stress Treatment at The Denver Stress Clinic
While many clinicians are taught to try to help patients manage stress, the strategy at The Denver Stress Clinic is to assess stress and then work to eliminate it. Undergoing a Stress Profile allows patients to quantify the stress that they are experiencing, and to measure the different effects that it has on the body. By quantifying stress and determining how it is expressed physiologically, an individualized treatment can be prescribed. This method is part of what makes The Denver Stress Clinic different, and is why our patients often see such speedy results.

“Every change in the physiological state is accompanied by an appropriate change in the mental-emotional state, conscious or unconscious, and conversely, every change in the mental-emotional state, conscious or unconscious, is accompanied by an appropriate change in the physiological state. This closed Newtonian-type principle, when coupled with volition, which at present is of indeterminate origin, makes possible a psychosomatic self-regulation"(Green, 1999, p. 368).
