What is Body Stress Release (BSR)?

Body Stress Release (BSR) is a technique used to assist the body, with its natural ability to maintain and heal itself naturally and gently. A light precise stimulation/impulse is applied to the body where tension is stored to encourage the body to relax, and release stored tension, which usually manifests as backache, tension headaches, fatigue, muscle spasms and even postural distortions.

Stress and your Health

Stress is fast becoming the most identifiable underlying cause of many illnesses and diseases.

Have you been told that you suffer from stress? Are you looking for a complimentary health technique to help you get over anxiety, edginess and irritability, fatigue, muscle spasms, constant migraines, general aches and pains or insomnia? We are constantly subjected to various forms of stress in our daily lives, and a certain amount is necessary, to provide us with challenges which stimulate us to strive, survive and progress in our lives.

However stress becomes a negative, destructive factor when it goes beyond the body’s ability to adapt to it. Stress overload is reached, and instead of stress being released from the body, it becomes stored within the body as “body stress”. As each of us differ in our emotional and physical make up, we have varying degrees of susceptibility to stress overload, which manifest in various ways from eating disorders, addictions, communication/sharing problems, frequent headaches, jaw clenching, dry mouth or difficulty swallowing.
Who Needs Body Stress Release
Body Stress Release is for everyone, from infants to elderly, whether sick or healthy.

As we are subjected to the stressors of living, we tend to accumulate stored tension, with the resulting decline of the body’s efficiency. Babies may have body stress as a result of a difficult birth.

Therefore everyone’s quality of life may be enhanced by being assessed for body stress and having a release from time to time.

To Whom It May Concern

I met Michelle during her training and practical session at the Body Stress Release academy here in the Wilderness.

She treated me 4 times over a period of 2 weeks and despite the fact that I went into the whole procedure somewhat sceptical, I was at first pleasantly surprised, that then extremely happy with the relief I got from the chronic knee and ankle pains I have experienced for years.

I can strongly recommend BSR to anyone – and I congratulate Michelle on her grasp and understanding of the whole technique. I wish her success in this new and exciting venture for herself.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so much for all your help during the period before and after my foot operation. I have found that BSR made a tremendous difference to my recovery and pain management before and after.

I really appreciate your commitment in helping me and would not have coped without the treatments.

“Thank you Michelle for the great BSR sessions. I have had numerous Physiotherapy sessions for my neck in the last few years with very little pain relief and for very short periods. Since my BSR sessions I have not looked back !!! The pain and never ending stiffness has gone and even the headaches have disappeared. I know maintenance sessions are essential for continued healing so I will definitely book sessions on my next visit to SA.”

“I battled with whiplash for a long time. It was not until I was introduced to Body Stress Release that I finally found relief from the tension in my neck and shoulders. The technique used in BSR is very gentle, non invasive and relaxing. I continue to have maintenance sessions with Michelle who has always been very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you Michelle for the experience of BSR and its healing process.“

“Dear Michelle,
Thank you so much for all you have done to help me with both my back problems and headaches!
My headaches are less severe now….when I get one. These used to come every 2nd week and last 4 to 5 days, now I get one only when very stressed and they only last a night and I can sleep them off with only taking 2 pain killers instead of the 8 a day I used to take!
My back has never seized again, must be from my monthly “maintenance” sessions with you!
Thank you once again for not only helping me to heal, but helping me cope with my day to day life.
Many thanks again
Your ever grateful headache free patient”

My aching leg pain is gone !! That draining, constant pain is no longer … BSR has definitely made a difference in my life, and my work as I stand a lot on some days… I will be back for my regular maintenance sessions as discussed, thank you Michelle, the impact BSR has had for me is such a relief.

Dear Michelle
As a 26 year old, newly married young lady, I was not happy to have been diagnosed with a problem with my aesophagus, and that there was little that could be done for me… my diet had to be changed along with my lifestyle in major ways. However after my sessions of BSR, I am feeling much “lighter” and better able to cope with my digestive issues. The future does look much brighter.

Ek is 58 jaar en werk voldag by ‘n dokter se praktyk. Ek het vir ongeveer 2 jaar lae rug pyn, wat ek aan my lang werksure toeskryf. Laas jaar het die pyn baie erg begin word, en ek het kruppel begin loop a.g.v van die regter been wat lam begin word het. Ek kon nie meer uit ‘n stoel opstaan nie, en ook nie in die nag omdraai in die bed nie. Dit was baie pynlik. My dokter het my vir x-strale gestuur wat gewys het dat my derde en vierde rugwerwel geskuif het en dit druk ‘n senuwee vas. Ek was na ‘n spesialis verwys wat ‘n rug operasie aanbeveel het a.g.v die drukking op die senuwee. My man het vir Michelle ontmoet, wat toe dadelik ‘n afspraak gereel het. Na die eerste sessie het ek nie veel geloof in BSR gehad nie. Ek wou ‘n vinnige oplossing he. My man het my aangemoedig on terug te gaan. Ek is toe vir 5 sessies elke tweede week. Ek het elke keer teruggegaan en begin om minder pyn pille te drink. Sy het my ook geleer om nie my rug te veel onder spanning to sit nie. Die posisie waarin ek sit is ook aangepas. Dit het toe elke keer beter begin gaan. In November laasjaar het ek besluit om die pyn pille heeltemal te los, en net vir BSR te gaan. Toe gebeur dit!! Dit het met elk sessie beter begin gaan. Ek kon self opstaan, en het heeltemal normaal begin loop. Ek volg haar raad om my rug in stand te hou en gaan nou elke ses weke vir ‘n sessie . Dit is wonderlik om geen pyn te he nie en ‘n goeie kwaliteit lewe te lei, en dit sonder ‘n operasie.
