Do you have trouble:

  • Sleeping
  • Focusing
  • Being ‘Present’ ?

Do you experience:

  • Heart Palpitations
  • Anxiety / Shakes
  • Night Sweats 

Those feelings of dread are all physical signs of stress where your body is telling you that all is not well and you need to do something about it.

Stress underlies other conditions addressed elsewhere on this website, in particular Addictions and Weight Loss / Control.

However, not all stress is bad. We need a degree of stress to get up and get things done. A healthy amount of stress gets us through life’s challenges such as exams, competitions, and races. 

 This is when our ‘fight or flight’ mode is activated and motivates us to get through the situation, and maybe excel. On a more mundane level, we need stress to run to catch a bus. When we have caught it and are seated looking out of the window, our breathing returns to normal. After the challenge, we go back to our usual mode of being.

Things go wrong when we do not, or cannot go back to normal and we remain in a heightened ‘fight or flight’ situation for an extended period. The events of the past year have resulted in many people trying to cope with this, and for some it has been traumatic. Restricted contact, work issues, closed gyms and entertainment venues have all had an impact. As have the daily news briefings and social media feeds, none of which have been positive.

Unfortunately, our brains are hard-wired to look for bad news, or danger. In pre-historic times this was useful, it kept us safe from predators. Nowadays, the constant presence of a threat that cannot be seen, and a threat to our way of life creates a constant state of fear. This eventually takes its’ toll on your time, energy, and health.

While the stress caused cannot be wiped out, we take time to work with you using the body’s inbuilt coping mechanisms and our innovative therapies. Through this, we develop strategies, build resilience, and create balance.
