The Chicago Stress Relief Center also specializes in alternative therapies that use a holistic approach. Sometimes, I’ll recommend a very specific skill-building exercise – such as kissing with eyes open or hugging until both partners are relaxed. There could be stress factors in place from a variety of sources, from issues related to parenting, infertility, chronic pain or depression, and I may steer them into a specific skill-building group. Acupuncture or hypnosis might be recommended as an adjunct to the treatment. A session in our floatation tank may be a way to quiet one’s mind and calm one’s body, an essential prerequisite to opening the door to staying in one’s skin during the inevitable challenge of restoring intimacy.
