What is Body Stress Release?
Body Stress Release is a unique complementary health technique that was researched and developed in South Africa in the 1980s by Gail and Ewald Meggersee and is now practiced worldwide.
Body Stress Release offers a gentle and effective way to release stored tension from the muscles and works with your body’s natural desire to be stress-free.
This stored tension may be the cause of the discomfort or other symptoms you may be experiencing including; backache, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, cramp, constipation, vulval pain or anxiety to name but a few.
Body Stress Release uses information provided by the body to determine where stored tension may be undermining the efficiency of the nervous system, disturbing the body’s ability to co-ordinate its functions and perform at its full potential.
