Every day we are exposed to different types of stress: physical, emotional and even chemical (from food or air pollutants, for instance). Although a little stress can be ‘good’ for you, when your body is overloaded with stress it struggles to adapt and the tension can become stored in physical structures like muscle. This is called ‘body stress’.
Listen to your body
The obvious signs of body stress are pain, stiffness, numbness and postural distortion. Other clues are general fatigue and a lack of energy and zest for life. Over time these symptoms often worsen but, with nothing obvious to blame them on, we often tolerate our suffering in silence or begin to accept them as normal.
‘I’m getting older, what else should I expect?’
‘A decent sleep should sort me out.’
‘It’s not life-threatening.’
‘I don’t have time to worry about this.’
Your body is amazing!
Our bodies have a natural predisposition to exist without stress. A healthy body will do its best to eliminate the effects of stressors. But a build-up of stored tension can throw our natural defence mechanisms off kilter, and our built-in self-healing mechanisms don’t function as well as they could. And this is where Body Stress Release can help. Once your body is manually stimulated to encourage it to unravel or ‘release’ the stored tension, it is able to continue its clever self-maintenance.
If you are feeling below par and think your body could be storing too much stress, BSR may be just the thing for you. If you're interested, take a look at our web site http://www.releasemystress.co.uk, or if you have any questions, give us a call 01273 321431
