Body Stress Release

Body Stress Release

Are aches and pains preventing you from experiencing optimal health?

Do you suffer from headaches, back pain, joint pain or arthritis?   Do you wake up stiff and uncomfortable or complain of numbing in the fingers and toes, pinched nerve sensations, tingling into the arms or debilitating migraines?


All of these complaints may indicate  the presence of stored body stress, which over time, disrupts the body’s communication to the muscles and nerves and may result in a range of effects:  from general muscle tension and discomfort to systemic imbalances such as infertility, heartburn, hyperactivity in children and a myriad of other complaints.  Click here to view frequent complaints and related case studies.  


Optimise the nervous system to kick-start healing:

Body Stress Release (BSR) is a gentle and effective health technique concerned with the accurate assessment and release of stored muscle tension (body stress).    BSR has a direct effect on the nervous system, and provides gentle intervention which boosts the body’s self-healing ability and prompts it to restore its natural balance.  This non-therapeutic, complementary health technique was founded in South Africa in 1981 (See The Origins of Body Stress Release)  and has assisted hundreds of people in their path to restored vitality and optimal health.


Body Stress Release is currently practiced in over 22 countries worldwide, and has representation in the UK, Canada, Japan, USA, Australia and  Europe.
