Stress release

Body orientated and mindfulness based stress release

Do you know anyone who isn't at times stressed out these days? The pace of modern life makes stress management a necessary skill for everyone. Many people juggle multiple responsibilities, work, home life, caregiving and relationships. Learning to identify problems and implement solutions is the key to successful stress relief on a daily basis. Everybody has the power to reduce the impact of stress as it’s happening and stay in control when the pressure builds.

Changing your response to stress can help you:

  • Find more rest, peace and balance in your life
  • Improve the balance between work and private life
  • Stay alert, productive, and focused, no matter what life throws at you

I will help you:

  • Identify your stress triggers
  • Develop healthy coping strategies

Symptoms of too much stress are:

  • Having the feeling you constantly need to do more or feeling like you’re on the run all the time
  • Headaches, pain in the stomach, tight shoulders and neck
  • A lack of energy or motivation
  • Feeling down or depressed
  • Problems sleeping, fatigue, problems concentrating
  • Restlessness, anxiety, worrying

Why body-orientated and mindful stress relief?
Physically we all respond to stress in the same way:Hormones like adrenaline and cortical release, your blood pressure rises, heart pumps faster, and muscles contract. This is called the "fight-or-flight" response.

Because stress is initially a bodily reaction you can reduce, regulate and resolve stress by working with bodily sensations (like tingling, warmth, openness etc.).

By working gradually with tension and relaxation we release the built-up tension. After the discharge you will experience a strong reduction and relief of your symptoms. Externally however we respond to stress in different ways.

You will learn what your specific stress responses are and how to deal with them. By learning in daily life to express them in a healthy and constructive way, you can help yourself through challenging situations and feelings. 

Stress means tension
It makes sure that you run away when you are being chased or alert when you need to do something challenging. 

We don't only react in this way to "real" threats like a fast approaching car. Also dangers like future events that scare us, expected moments of tension like resolving conflict, not being able to finish work, and the fear of being rejected, all create the same response. 

If the threat ore difficult job is over the body returns to its normal state. We experience it as a relief: the tension glides of the shoulders.

With too much or chronic stress, the survival energy stays stuck in our body and because of our biological response to stress, it is hard to let tension go. 

The body thinks it’s under threat and needs to survive, even if the stress inducer is long gone or has not yet taken place. Different thoughts, feelings, convictions, and behaviour, will arise to keep the tension under control. In order to relief yourself from those thoughts, feelings, convictions and behaviors it is important to get to the biological root of stress and work from there together with attention to your believes.

We will re-negotiate and investigate patterns that have build and are not needed anymore. Gain back ease and quit and relief yourself from big ore small complaints.
