Many of us struggle to find time to relax in modern life, and often we don’t realise how much tension we are carrying in our bodies as a result.
The relentless pace and stimulus of daily life can easily trigger a fight/flight response, leading to altered breathing patterns which in turn can cause neck/back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain or other symptoms almost anywhere in your body.
A relaxation session can be helpful if:
you are struggling with ongoing symptoms that are related to a stress response (this may have been identified during an assessment with me)
you simply want to spend some time relaxing, and feeling calmer
A relaxation session may involve:
calming breathing techniques
some hands-on work around the ribcage
some time spent using a Sensate device, which stimulates the vagus nerve. It is non-invasive and relaxing (click on the link for a great explanation of how it works)
gentle massage with hot stones
