I'm Terry Maluk, and I've been where you are.
My story is probably a lot like yours. I worked for years in a fast-paced professional field, always rushing, always exhausted. I worked with a great team bringing much-need services to many. Over time, demands increased while staffing decreased and we were all working harder than ever. Looking back, I recognize this was when I started experiencing physical symptoms that I didn’t know were related to chronic stress.
I let my work life intrude on my home and family life because I couldn’t set healthy boundaries. I was taking care of everyone and everything else, but not taking care of myself. Headaches became chronic migraines, low back pain started limiting my activities. I was waking up at 2 am and couldn't get back to sleep. Sound familiar?
The chronic stress of ever-changing priorities and demands was taking its toll on my body and my happiness. When I started having chest pains, my doctor gave me unexpected news, and I realized it was critical for me to find a way to relieve the constant stress I was under.
I did the work to find and learn a variety of stress relief techniques. At first, I worked on my own to relieve the physical pain, and then I found great teachers and coaches who showed me exactly how to use time-honored and leading-edge techniques with quick and amazing success. They helped guide me as I was able to dig deeper into the underlying causes of my pain. Relieving this pain by reducing chronic stress allowed me to get back to enjoying the things I love to do, like hiking, traveling, and scuba diving.
And that is how my journey as a Stress Relief Specialist began! After a few years of trial and error, training and practice, I customized my very own Stress Relief Toolbox with all the techniques that helped me to reduce and manage my stress triggers both at work and in the rest of my life. Because one size doesn’t always fit all. I specialize in helping professional women relieve and reduce chronic stress. By relieving the stress, we discover a cascade of benefits in our lives.
My qualifications include a Master of Science Degree in Public Health and a Bachelor’s Degree in Science Education. I am an EFT International (formerly AAMET) Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner, a Yoga Alliance-registered Yoga Teacher and a Certified Reiki Master/Teacher. I am happy to have trained both through EFT Universe and through AAMET with trainers who worked directly with EFT Founder Gary Craig. I have also completed Matrix Reimprinting Training.
Here’s what’s true: Chronic stress will cause damage to your body and to your quality of life. AND you can do something about it.
