Peninsula man pinpointing people’s stress

Trevor May said he’s on a journey, learning about people and about the body and how different things relate.

Trevor May said he’s on a journey, learning about people and about the body and how different things relate.

Since 2005, May has been offering stress reduction and health analysis to clients. He’s a certified Biofeedback Specialist and owner of Peninsula Quantum Wellness,

“There is so much inter-connectedness within us, both on a physical level and on an emotional, and energetic level,” he said.

May said the device he uses provides a window on all of that, adding it’s very holistic in its conception and functioning. He believes western medicine can sometimes be too focussed on the physical or on some kind of reductionistic specialty where people lose the big picture.

For May, it’s about taking the time to understand the client and what’s going on for them right now. He said it’s about truly getting a sense of what the clients’ chief concerns are, which could be related to other things in their life that he can  detect.

“This (procedure) will measure your body’s reaction to 11,000 different trivector frequencies — trivector meaning three dimensional, so voltage, amperage, resistance,” he said.

May said the tool  was created to provide an electronic interface with the body. He compared it to that of diagnostic computers used for cars. He said it’s similar for the human body, except we have to understand that it’s the body’s reaction to a frequency.

“So it’s a qualitative measure as opposed to a quantitative measure such as drawing someone’s blood and measuring how much iron’s in it.”

May hooks people up to a harness and uses a carbonized rubber for a conductor. The leads then snap onto the wrists, ankles and around the head, all connecting into the device.

In terms of the various causes of stress May sees in his clients, a big one he said is money. He said it can sometimes be workplace stress or relationship stress, but those can all be spin-offs from the money stress, which can be difficult to pick them apart.

After identifying the key stressors, the device will then rank all of the reactions in order — colour coding the most reactive ones. May then will read a printout, looking at what was determined to be a person’s top priorities. That’s done by reviewing the various electronic attractions and reactions detected by the device.

May said one reason people come to him is because they want to better understand their stress and what’s affecting their health.

“It’s not a diagnostic device, it’s not licensed that way, but you may call it a pre-diagnostic device in the sense that it gives us some clues as to what might be relevant and then they can follow up with a doctor or a naturopath …”

May is at Lifestyle Select in Sidney (located at 9769 Fifth Street) every Wednesday from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m for people to drop in if they wish to hear him teach some nutritional education. He also focusses with the device on vitamins, hormones and aminos.
