Brian Stalsonburg EMT-B, I/C

Stressed-out, burned-out people are one minor or major incident away from getting sick or dealing with the fallout from a mistake or poor judgement. 

I have witnessed the toll occupational stress takes on the body, the mind, relationships and job performance.

Using Heart-Rate Variability (HRV) tools to manage stress and build resilience, changed my life and can change yours too. 

HRV tools can decrease the occupational risks of stress and burnout, and help you feel better fast.
