STRESSBUSTERS 2016

The Institute for Holistic Health Studies at WCSU held the second annual STRESSSBUSTERS! Event on December 6, 2016.  This event, designed to help students, faculty, and staff manage the “end of semester” stress, was co sponsored by the Center for Compassion, Creativity, and Innovation at WCSU.  STRESSBUSTERS! featured a variety of practitioners  offering tips and techniques for self care and tools  to ease and relieve stress.  Among the services provided were Reiki, Reflexology, Restorative yoga, Hand massage, Aromatherapy, Tarot card readings, Emotional Freedom technique (EFT—commonly known as “tapping”) and Crystals for healing.  Energy protection exercises were demonstrated, and the Shamanic practitioner guided participants to find their power animal. Information on exercise and nutrition to help alleviate stress and encourage relaxation was provided, and attendees enjoyed the  compassionate heart exercise, breathing meditations and  visualizations, coloring meditation, and the  chocolate meditation.   Drumming for healing was very popular, and everyone enjoyed the therapy dogs.   Over one hundred people learned new ways to ease and relieve their stress, and to stop and take life one breath at a time.
