In this paper, we present a design exploration of the domain of stress therapy, involving stress researchers and professional therapists. We address the problem of using bio-data, collected during the course of everyday live, in stress therapy. The challenge is centered on how to visualize data in a way that can be useful for therapists and patients. We present our results and reflect on our design exploration, arguing that research through design can provide useful insights in domains that are hard to access using other methods of inquiry, as well as support imagination of future scenarios.
