The presence of body stress in an individual can be synonymous with pain, stiffness, postural distortions, numbness, tingling sensations, cramps or a more general feeling of having low energy, or suffering from anxiety. This stress or tension in the muscles can put pressure on the nerves and interrupt your body's communication system. This then reduces the efficiency of your body to perform daily functions,  including its natural ability to heal.


It is a gentle, yet effective way of helping your body to release tension stored in the muscles of the body and restore the communication pathways to promote self-healing and well-being. Body Stress Release works with your body's natural desire to be stress free and in optimal health. The technique can be extremely relaxing and is performed whilst the client lays on a specially designed HiLo couch fully clothed. The practitioner performs a series of muscle tests to locate the precise sites and direction of stored tension before applying a gentle pressure to the affected area to encourage the body to 'release' the stress.

Can BSR help me?

Body stress is a powerful factor in all our lives which can undermine our health and well-being in many ways. Every day we are exposed to different types of stress:

Physical or Mechanical - such as an injury from a fall or car accident, lifting heavy objects incorrectly, or performing repetitive movements.

Emotional or Mental - such as a bereavement, work deadlines, financial worries, important events.

Chemical - such as air pollutants, additives or preservatives in food or chemicals in cosmetics, or cleaning products.

Our bodies are designed to adapt to these stresses in a positive way, but sometimes we find ourselves overloaded by stress. In an attempt to cope with this overload, the body stores the stress in muscles and this is what we call " Body Stress"

I have spent my entire career within the medical area, with my Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Pharmacology and my Post Doctoral degree in Immunology and Molecular Biology. Having spent 14 years working in scientific research, I have always been fascinated by the body's ability to heal itself and together with my own experience with illness and stress, this has lead me on the path to become a qualified Body Stress Release practitioner. I am thoroughly rewarded every day  from performing this unique technique and facilitating my clients to progress to a better state of health and well-being.
