Dr. Gary Flegal is a dynamic stress management practitioner who has helped hundreds of individuals learn to take control of their stress and its impact on their health through dynamic one-on-one sessions. He has helped thousands more through corporate stress management seminars, presented for groups and companies on location and at conventions. Gary Flegal is an exciting and accomplished presenter and keynote speaker.

Gary’s doctorate in “Health Education and Human Performance” from Michigan State University provided training in a wide variety of holistic and health-oriented practices, including exercise physiology, general health education & nutrition practices, men’s health, and stress management. Further practical training in stress management came to Gary while working in affiliation with the original Mind/Body Medical Institute at Harvard under the direction of Herbert Benson, M.D. and his staff.

Stress management is one of Gary’s passions because it allows him to help people make significant and positive life-changes. His other passion is magic. Gary has been a professional magician for over 30 years and continues practicing his art at every opportunity. These two passions work together beautifully as Gary illustrates stress management concepts with fun, visual and “magical” demonstrations in his stress management workshops and seminars, as well as allowing him to share stress management with his magic audiences everywhere he goes. Laughter is, after all, the best medicine, and one of the most fun methods to elicit a relaxation response is to laugh.

Gary Flegal possesses Master level training in Reiki, a hands-on healing therapy recognized by the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan. Reiki practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above the person receiving treatment, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response. In the United States, Reiki is part of complementary and alternative medicine.

Gary Flegal is also a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists. Hypnotism has been recognized by the American Medical Association.
