Body Stress Release: Unlocking tension, restoring self-healing.

Body Stress Release is a gentle yet powerful health technique originating from South Africa. It stimulates the body to release tension locked in very precise part of the body. Unlike many other techniques, BSR actually focus on individual patterns of Stress : for a same symptom, the release needed can be completly different from one person to another, and this is what BSR can precisely find out.

The nervous system, which functions as a “communication system” in the body, is hampered by local muscle tension. If the nervous system regains space, the body and its self-healing function will improve and both acute and long-term health problems will diminish or disappear.

Those are the most common reason people come for BSR, as we all want to be free of pain. As body stress compresses the nerves, the result is often:

  • Pain.
  • Numbness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle stiffness (with restricted movement and loss of flexibility)
  • Headache and/or migraine
  • Distorted posture
  • Joint degeneration
  • Constant tiredness / fatigue
  • Psychological effects
  • Disturbed function
  • Infertility,
  • Bladder infections
  • Indigestion, constipation or diarrhea
  • Pins and needles, cramps or burning feet
  • Colic in babies
  • Growing pains in children
  • Other disturbed bodily functions.

BSR is suitable for babies, children, adults, pregnant women and elderly people.

Oh! And we also work with animals (especially horses, but also dogs, goats, and even guinea pigs, …)

Before starting with BSR, I recommend you one practical thing: call your insurance company to learn about your reimbursement possibilities.

During a BSR session, you will keep your comfortable clothes on and will remove your shoes (in that regard, please bring an extra pair of clean socks),

Directly after a BSR session (in the same day) you should not practice any sports that involve the bending and twisting of the spine (ex: golf, yoga, …).

BSR is a technique that will enhance your body ability to heal. With it comes greater sensation, this will ask of you to be aware of your healing process and to respect it.

Healing starts in the practice but most of it happens out of it!

What does this mean? It means that your responsibility during the BSR process is, for instance, to work on your posture at home and at work, it is also to re-evaluate your conscious response to stress factors (physical, emotional, etc…).

Let’s work together!
