” Of all our troubles, great and small , the greatest are the one’s that don’t happen at all “.
Given the times we are living in, stress has become an endemic part of our lives.
We all feel stressed from time to time. Stress is a normal psychological and physical response to the day to day demands of life.
Stress causes our body’s defense system, known as ” flight or fight ” to kick in.
The nervous system releases a flood of stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol that help us deal with different everyday situations.
Too much stress however is a different issue.
Frequent stress can cause the body to be in a heightened state of stress most of the time which can lead to a suppressed immune system that can cause serious illness eg,
heart condtions, diabetes, IBS, IBD.
Dealing with too much stress on a daily basis can lead to anxiety, even leading to depression.
Depression is a disorder that can greatly effect everything we do in our daily lives.
So it is most important to have chronic stress/ anxiety reduced before it eventually leads to depression.
Thankfully, there are several ways to help reduce stress and anxiety, eg daily exercise, yoga and meditation.
Two highly effective complementary therapies used to help reduce stress/ anxiety are Reflexology and Reiki.
Reflexology helps the body reach a state of deep relaxation which has the capacity to diminish the effects of stress.
Reiki is highly effective in helping to reduce tension in the body and also releases mental and emotional stress.
I love to receive both Reflexology and Reiki and i do so on a regular basis, they are wonderful therapies and help keep the body and mind in a good healthy state.
