Finding Calm in the Chaos

Physical therapist and Resilience Toolkit Certified Facilitator Chantal Donnelly offers workshops and one-on-one sessions to mitigate stress and help gain the upper hand in the tug-of-war between calm and chaos. “What does it mean to decrease your stress? Self-care doesn’t seem to be working for people; we seem to be living for vacations—a temporary hold on stress—but it doesn’t take care of the day-to-day problem,” explains Donnelly, who uses traditional, hands-on therapy techniques, exercise, and science-based tools for stress management to help her patients through recovery. Starting at $150//hour for private sessions; $45/1-day workshop; bodyinsight.com
