Learning to reverse the Damaging Effects of Stress!

mentalillnessStress, tension, uptight, hassled! Modern disease…or is it?
Studies show that 90% of all illness is stress-related.
The physical ailments of;

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain,
  • Sleeplessness or chronic depression,
  • Shortness of breath,
  • Increased degree of risk taking,
  • Muscle tension anywhere – which may eventually become arthritis.
    may well be directly cause chronic fatigue, anger, self-criticism, irritability, feelings of helplessness and depression.

While exercise and massage have a soothing effect on stress, the Alexander Technique works on the core causes of this debilitation.

During chronic stress, there is a build up in the body of excess hormone which tightens the muscle fibres and this becomes an unconscious and habitual response to all stimulus. Learning the Technique gives an understanding and knowledge to the conscious mind to re-activate the release of the muscles and the bony structure. Perfect order is once more restored.
