Why Creative Tension Skills?


. . . because excess stress can rip you off . . .


Excess stress can hijack your brain, twist your body and distort your perception.   You can get blind and trapped in the stress.   Your physical body loses integration, your relationship with people become distorted, and you become numb to the environment around you. 


Consequently your creative process, thinking, idea generation, collaboration and design sense suffer.     


Under excess stress, people tend to lose the flow and instead push to achieve their goals.  Excess 'push' creates physical friction, 'stress', in your body and brain.  Not a good long term strategy.  'Flow' means that you ride a natural energy that exists between you and your challenge - balancing an assertive push with a natural flow to identify and overcome challenges.


The Creative Tension Program is a blend of Mind-Body + Wellness + Fitness training AND onsite massage - all integrated to enhance your daily skills and practices to ride the waves of creative tension.
