Many of our symptoms can directly or indirectly relate to stress. High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, hyperventilation, back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches and repetitive stress injuries (RSI) are to be considered. The major underlying cause is excessive mental pressure, both at work and at home. Long working hours, short breaks, eating on the desk and then home quickly where busy family life continues. This causes the body to remain in a state of high alert. The body generates large amounts of stress hormones, such as adrenaline. Sufficient relaxation is required in order to reduce these stress hormones. Those who are under constant pressure to perform have an excessive level of stress hormones. This results in an unsettled hormonal system. The body remains in a stress state, even when resting. Muscles, tendons and nerves etc. can become damaged.
During exercise therapy you will learn how to unwind body and spirit by means of targeted relaxation exercises, which can cause a reduction in pain symptoms.
