“Stress is when you wake up screaming and relalize that you haven’t fallen asleep yet”
“Future shock is the shattering stress and disorientation that modern day life induces into individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short a time.”
Why Stress Is Deadly
If you’re worried about your health, stop. You’re only making it worse. Stress takes its toll on your body, and new research reveals it is even more dangerous than thought. Stress causes deterioration in everything from your gums to your heart and can make you more susceptible to illnesses ranging from the common cold to cancer, according to a review essay in the Dec. 2007 issue of the Association for Psychological Science’s magazine Observer.
We are all too aware of the physiological and psychological impact that stress can have upon our daily lives. When the sources of stress are not dealt with, they are instead stored in the body and become accumulated (chronic stress). We all store stress, whether it is physical or emotional in our own unique pattern of energy and in different areas of the body. This becomes very detrimental to our overall well-being. Unresolved stored stress is a contributing factor to, if not the cause of so many of our health issues today.
When an animal perceives danger, a system kicks into gear: A chain reaction of signals releases various hormones. These fight or flee occasions are infrequent and threats pass quickly, the body’s stress thermostat adjusts accordingly: The intestines resume digesting food, the sex organs kick back into gear and the immune system resumes fighting infections.
Growing evidence shows that our sensitivity to stress as adults is already “tuned” in infancy. Specifically, the amount of stress encountered in early life sensitizes an organism to a certain level of adversity; high levels of early life stress may result in hypersensitivity to stress later, as well as to adult depression.
Besides heart disease, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, chronic stress has been linked to ailments as diverse as intestinal problems, gum disease, erectile dysfunction, growth problems and even cancer. One study found that people who experience high amounts of stress at work are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Recent research also showed that a stress hormone could cause skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. Chronic rises in stress hormones have been shown to accelerate the growth of precancerous cells and tumors; they also lower the body’s resistance to HIV and cancer-causing viruses like human papilloma virus.
According to Stanford neuroendocrinologist Robert Sapolsky, who has studied stress in baboon troops, it is the relative safety from predators and high amounts of leisure time enjoyed by some primates — including humans — that has transformed these useful biological coping mechanisms into a source of pointless suffering and illness.

Using Technology to relieve stress
There are plenty of studies to be quoted here. But the truth is, they really don’t matter. What does matter is you! Relaxation is something most people have to fit into their schedule. We all know how stress affects the majority, but again it doesn’t matter, because it is how stress is affecting you!
The NexNeuro system has a solution, with you in mind! Imagine 20 minutes of pure peace, solitude and relaxation. In just 20 minutes the “Induced Relaxation” technology of our system can have you feeling relaxed and calm you’re racing mind. Vibration therapy offers a drug free, enjoyable solution to the stress and anxiety. The music, coupled with the subliminal frequencies and the series of subtly vibrating sound generators combine to resonate the body, as though getting a massage from the inside out. Although it is not felt on a physical level, each cell is being “released” of stored patterns of stress. The soothing music with embedded binaural beats eases the brain into calmer and more relaxing brainwave patterns. The vibration felt through the lounge relaxes muscles and joints, offering an internal cellular massage releasing stored emotional issues, allowing you to experience an intense sense of inner peace and one of resolution.
