WHAT IS BODY STRESS RELEASE?
Body Stress Release is a health profession concerned with unlocking the tensions stored in physical structures, thereby assisting the body in restoring its maximum efficiency.
This gentle technique assists the body in its own healing process and brings effective relief from many forms of tension, pain and discomfort caused by the build-up of stress in the body.
When the stresses of life - whether mechanical, chemical or mental/emotional - reach the level of overload, the body is no longer able to adapt constructively. The stress becomes locked into the physical structures, causing pain, stiffness, numbness or postural distortions.
Body Stress Release does not use medication or machines, nor does it involve massage, manipulation, pressure points or energy meridians. It is practical and logical.
Body Stress Release uses information provided by the body to determine where, stored tension may be undermining the efficiency of the nervous system, disturbing the body’s ability to co-ordinate its functions, heal itself, and perform at its full potential.
Stress overload may be defined as the overriding of the body’s inner resistive powers by an outer, invasive force.
Stress overload may occurs when the stresses experienced by an individual goes beyond the limits of their adaptability. For example, an overload of stress to a bone will break it and the body will need outside help in setting the bone with a cast or pins, in order for healing to take place.
A less extreme example of stress overload is if the body is subjected to a lighter force, such as a fall, which goes beyond the body’s ability to deal with it. If the body is unable to release it, the tension becomes “locked” into the physical structures – the muscles, tendons, ligaments or other tissues remain tight and constricted. We call this “body stress”.
