The Stress Reponse

  • Opti-Life 9758 East 21st Street North Wichita, KS, 67226 United States (map)

In this class we will discuss the physiology of how stress changes your nervous system, your digestive system, your hormones, and your ability to function. Many diseases today are directly linked to the effects of chronic stress on the body. It’s important to identify the little stressors on your system that you may not even know about. Quality of life depends on it.

Presented by Dr. Traci Granfield

After graduating from University of Kansas in 2004 with a degree in psychology where I studied as a pre-med student, I drove to the bay area to earn my doctorate degree at Life Chiropractic College West.After graduating with honors in 2008 I received extended training in a specialized Chiropractic technique called NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association).

From California to Seattle, I began practicing as an associate doctor in Chiropractic offices around the Puget Sound. In 2014, I set out on a mission to run my own practice so I could offer the best care possible to my patients and create Live Well Spinal Care. 10 years of patient care has offered experience and insight that makes me even more passionate about my work as a NUCCA chiropractor.

At the beginning of 2018, I moved from Seattle to Wichita to be closer to family. I grew up in Wichita and attended Maize schools. Now that I'm back after 12 years away, I'm appreciating the sunshine and friendly culture here. At Opti-Life I teach core and strength training classes weekly. This fits right in with my passion to help people live a better life through healthy habits and strong bodies. In my spare time I enjoy cooking new and healthy recipes, growing fresh herbs and flowers, playing games and staying fit.
