What is Body Stress?

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

  • Physical – such as an injury, strain or bad posture.
  • Chemical – such as air pollutant, additives and colourants in food, harmful chemicals in everyday products.
  • Mental or emotional stress.

Sometimes we find ourselves overloaded by stress. In an effort to cope with this overload, the body stores the stress in the muscles. This is what we call ‘body stress’. Body stress can lead to pain, stiffness, postural distortion, numbness, and cramps. Tension in the muscles can put pressure on your nerves which disturbs your body’s communication system. This reduces the efficiency of your body’s natural self-healing ability.

What happens during a session of BSR?

Whilst fully clothed and lying down, the BSR practitioner will do a series of pressure tests, and the muscular responses indicate the exact sites of stored stress.

The BSR practitioner then applies a light but definite pressure in the precise directions indicated.

This allows the body to restore muscle tone and return to its in-built ability to heal and maintain itself.
