This case report aims to disseminate the results of a pilot study exploring the potentialities of training program in cardiac coherence (CC) for reducing stress in nurses with chronic neck pain. For this purpose, 8 nurses participated in a training program in CC and were evaluated pre/post on the following factors: pain (VAS), emotional intelligence (TMMS-24), anxiousdepressive symptoms (Hamilton & Goldberg scales) and jobrelated stress (NSS). After the training, a significant decrease in pain scores and associated symptoms (spasms, pain due to mobility and paresthesias) as well as depressive symptoms was observed. Also, higher scores were observed in emotional intelligence (perception scale).
