If stress levels build up they affect our emotional and physical well-being causing headaches and pain anywhere in the body. As a fully qualified osteopath, Elizabeth can locate and release tensions that have built up in the body.
Osteopathy can be used to treat stress caused by:
• Sickness and injury
• Emotional issues and grief
• Bad work/life balance
• Financial and work worries
• Life changes
Your body’s reaction to stress
The body’s stress response means that the nervous system will release stress hormones and cortisol in the body. These hormones make the muscles tighten so that’s why when we’re stressed we physically feel ”wound up”.
Using therapeutic massage and exercise, osteopathy can release these unwanted tensions.
