Making lasting lifestyle health behavior changes is....well...HARD!
Research has demonstrated that health coaching and support is key to successful lifestyle change.
We integrate health behavior change through a holistic and integrative model, based on the science of psychophysiology.
Psychophysiology is the science of the interrelationship or the bidirectional relationship between psychological and physiological processes. We have to think of this relationship as both dynamic and bidirectional in nature. This means that it is constantly changing depending on the state of the organism (i.e., stressed, depressed, in pain, etc.) and communicates in both directions. What this means is that what happens within our psychological processes can influence our physiological processes and vice versa.
One of the easiest and most accurate ways to measure these effects is by a well-known and well-research metric called Heart Rate Variability or HRV.
In its most simplistic form, HRV refers to the beat to beat variation in the time intervals between heart contractions. When we think about the oscillations of a healthy heart, they are actually quite complex. The healthy heart is typically seen as one that can rapidly adjust to sudden physical and psychological challenges. HRV is absolutely crucial to our overall health, resilience, and may be increased through different behavioral activation and practices, like effortless breathing, exercise, compassion practices, and mindfulness practices.
At Thrive Wellness and Performance, we complete a comprehensive HRV evaluation/consultation that focuses on multiple primary areas of mental and physical well-being. From this evaluation, we develop a comprehensive collaborative, and tailored health plan to help you reach your personal goals (i.e., stress reduction, fatigue reduction, peak performance, etc.).
Individual coaching sessions will include a review of HRV data, coaching on techniques for improving these metrics, and tailored health plans for improving well-being. Dr. Wiles has worked with numerous elite athletes and peak performers, as well as those looking to enhance overall well-being through stress reduction. These individuals have employed numerous health techniques such as:
Tai Chi and Qi Gong
Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation
What if you could gain insight into your stress response by examining your physiology?
What if I told you that you could learn to become more aware of this response and also be taught ways to self-regulate stress?
