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.
