BSR to help locals relieve tension and discomfort
MEN and women are exposed to a variety of different stresses every day which can have physical, chemical, mental or emotional impacts on the body.
Body Stress Release (BSR) owner Sandy Melvin said the body was designed to be self-healing but when a level of stress reached overload, it became locked in the body causing lines of tension and discomfort.
“The body is able to adapt to most everyday stresses we are exposed to and it can also dissipate some of the stresses out of the system, usually over a couple of days,” she said.
“However, when the level of stress reaches a point of overload, it becomes locked into the physical structure, forming lines of tension. These lines of tension cause discomfort, stiffness, spasms, pain, numbness and tingling, and need to be attended to as soon as possible.”
Mrs Melvin said many people suffer a range of health problems that could often be traced to these stress overloads, with the result that pain becomes constant.
She said these individuals may eventually accept that feeling less than 100 percent or living with pain is a normal condition.
“Body Stress Release is designed to assist the body to release these lines of tension and is practiced in many parts of the world including Europe, North America, Africa, Japan, New Zealand and Australia,” she said.
“There are only a few practitioners in Australia and we are fortunate to have two practitioners in Proserpine.”
Physical stress can be caused as a result of falls, car accidents, injuries, heavy physical work, lifting incorrectly, some types of exercise and poor posture.
Chemical stresses can be caused through ingestion of food and drink due to additives and preservatives, food sensitivities or intolerances and medications, or through inhalation or absorption while mental or emotional stress is generally locked into the neck, shoulders and diaphragm.
