Every year, the International Stress Management Association helps raise awareness of the numerous solutions that are available to counteract the effects of stress. The 16th National Awareness Day will be held on 5th November 2014 with the theme of Stress: the balancing act.
Locally, natural help is close at hand. ISMA member and Body Stress Release Practitioner Charlotte Richardson-Knott with 15 years of experience and a practice in Ware, assists individuals in releasing their stress and regaining their quality of life with a technique known as Body Stress Release.
Body Stress Release is a safe, non-invasive, integrative health technique assisting the body to release stored tension which has become locked into the physical structure as a result of stress overload. This may affect an individual’s quality of life and cause intense pain, stiffness, numbness, inflexibility, burning, fatigue and discomfort throughout the entire body.
With the person fully clothed and lying down, a series of light pressure tests are carried out to locate the exact sites of stored tension. A gentle manual stimulus is then applied to encourage the body to release this tension and assist the body in its innate ability to heal and maintain itself.
