Stress release

Stress means tension, if stress is harmful depends on your resiliency and taxability

In the old days stress was key to survival. Feeling fear and acting on time could be the difference between being dinner for a tiger or survival. In modern life the tiger has been replaced by the juggling of multiple responsibilities, busy jobs, worries about money, deadlines, home life and so on.

The pace of modern life makes stress management a necessary skill for everyone. Learning to identify problems and implement solutions is the key to successful stress release on daily basis. Ensuring long term mental and physical health benefits.

Increase your resiliency and taxability and:

  • Find more rest, peace and balance in your life
  • Improve the balance between work and private life
  • Stay productive, and focused, no matter what life throws at you
  • Identify your stress triggers and accompanying reactions
  • Develop healthy coping strategies
  • Stay alert yet calm.

Stress means tension It’s a natural and healthy reaction of your body in response to charging events. Stress makes sure someone runs away if being chased, and is alert and on top of their game if they have to do something that is challenging, exiting or important. Healthy temporary stress helps you to stay focused, and perform optimally. It also prepares your body for adequate action needed in face of threat.

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 comes with a huge amount of “survival energy” and is called the "fight-or-flight" 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. To keep this tension under control diverse thought patterns, feelings, convictions, behavior and physical complaints will arise.

Symptoms of too much stress are:

  • Having the feeling you constantly need to do more.
  • Feeling like you’re on the run all the time, hypervigilant
  • Stomach and bowl problems, dizziness, weak immunesystem
  • Headaches, tight shoulders and neck
  • A lack of energy or motivation
  • Feeling down or depressed
  • Sleeping problems, tyredness, problems concentrating
  • Chronic fatigue, vague physical complaints, hyperventilation, digestive problems
  • Restlessness, anxiety, worrying

In order to relief yourself from limiting thought or behavioural patterns and physical symptoms it is important to get to the biological root of stress and work from the “bottom up”

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

By gradually stepping in and out of tension we release built-up tension. After the discharge you will experience a strong reduction and relief of your symptoms. We will re-negotiate and investigate patterns that keep you from stress reduction and stress management. You will learn how to regulate yourself and how to apply that in daily life. You don’t need to know the direct cause of your symptoms to be effective in dealing with stress.

“Everybody has the power to reduce the impact of stress as it’s happening and stay in control when the pressure builds”.
