Most of us have experienced stress. In small doses it can have a positive effect by motivating you to do your best. But what happens when the pressure gets too much, your usual coping strategies no longer work and your health begins to suffer?
Long term stress contributes to many problems such as anxious thoughts, mood swings, aches and pains, weariness and exhaustion, memory problems, feelings of isolation, insomnia, digestive upsets and much more.
We all need to find ways to unwind and balance our life. Managing stress is about taking control of your thoughts and emotions and making time for rest and relaxation.
There are many ways of helping you to do this. We specialise in combining energy therapies to help you to relax, rebalance and re-energise. We work with you and offer advice and coping strategies for you to continue the good work at home.
