Body Stress Release is a very gentle technique founded in South Africa which releases deep-rooted long and short stresses and (muscle) tensions.
These stresses may hinder the communication between the brain and the organs & body systems, so the brain is no longer aware of these tense areas. In this way the stress becomes locked in physical structures, does not naturally release, and can manifest as headaches, migraines, painful and stiff neck and shoulders, back pain, tingling or numbness, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, dizziness, sleep and concentration problems, etc.
These are all symptoms we’re likely to experience at some stage in our life, and often the effects of body stress. The problem is: nowadays we rarely take time to allow our bodies to recover. This is where BSR comes in: using a series of gentle impulses, it stimulates your body to release the stress, restoring communication between brain and the rest of the body.
Rather than “forcing” or manipulating things back in place, we work with the body as a whole helping it release the unwanted tension. The light pressure is enough to remind your body to heal. To quote a colleague: “You have to trust your body: it knows best and will mend itself when reminded.”
As the stress accumulates, sometimes over years, it can be an interesting journey to get to the deeper and older causes of the stress, “peeling” off layers, a bit like layers of an onion, to get to the core of the problem. It is therefore important to listen to the warning signals of pain and discomfort that our body is sending and book an appointment before your pain reaches crisis point
