Resility Health born from search for stress relief

by: Katie Garwood Staff Writer

After years of chronic, low-grade back, neck and shoulder pain and ineffective treatments, Resility Health founder and CEO Sarah Davidson realized that it wasn’t caused by a health issue, but by stress.

It wasn’t until she tried biofeedback training that she found relief. It helped her see how her body responded to stressful situations, and helped her learn to physically respond to stress. Even that became expensive and inconvenient.

In 2016, she realized she could create a convenient alternative.

“You don’t have to go in and be wired up to six sensors to be able to get that biofeedback and figure out what’s happening in your body,” Davidson said. 

“It was really just a matter of seeing that there was a gap in the market. I just thought this could be made so much easier if people can just do it on an app,” she said. Resility Health produces a wearable device that tracks muscle tension using its smartphone app and offers a subscription service that includes the virtual coaching and personalized lessons and exercises. Read the full article here.
