BSR to help lo­cals re­lieve ten­sion and dis­com­fort

Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

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.
