About The Stress Institute
The Stress Institute® was established to serve as a center for collection and dissemination of information on the impact of stress on our lives. Comprised of prominent physicians and professionals in a variety of stress and work life balance related disciplines, we are interested in exploring the various effects of stress on our mental, physical and spiritual well being.
The Stress Institute® evolved out of Wellness Solutions at Oak Haven®. Wellness Solutions was founded in 1997 by Dr. Hall as a center to learn about the science of mind-body medicine, stress reduction practices and self care. After many years of working with patients and clients Dr. Hall believed stress was at the root of most of the diseases and conditions that inhibited health and wellness in individuals' lives.
Dr. Hall has been working with individuals, patients and corporations for more than 15 years specifically with stress management and life balance. As the educator and group facilitator of a hospital based cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation and wellness program since 1998, Dr. Hall has become a world renowned expert in stress and work-life balance.
Scientific research now reveals the catastrophic effect that stress can have on our mental, physical and spiritual health and well being.
