What happens, if you are living in stress?

„People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them.” Epictetus

Stress in itself is not only a psychological phenomenon. Our body is responding to both positive and negative emotional impulses, no matter if it is realizable or not on cognitive level. For example fear or anxiety can evoke in you certain stomach reactions as spasm or acidity, while waiting for a pleasant thing you literally can feel ’butterflies in your stomach’. When you are sad, you bow your head instinctively and when you feel happy you smile or „ can catch butterflies” which means you feel your body light.

 

Stress is causing tension within your mind thus your body is responding to that immediately. Just imagine a hunting lion lying in the grass on standby. While waiting for the right moment to rush at the pray there is a vibration in his muscles of the bottom and scapula area. Stretches and releases all the muscles very fast to get ready to attack in the right time in the highest speed possible.

stress - stand by

Due to our busy lifestyle we are also often on standby to pick up the phone, answer a question, solve all problems related to our job, to our relationships, to our partnership, bank loans, or just simply the question of survival. We feel a strong MUST to be on the top and sorting out all the emerging problems immediately.

All the matters of Hope and Fear, Happiness and Suffering, Fame and Insignificance, Praise and Blame, Gain and Loss are influencing our life. We hope to achieve happiness and trying to sustain it with any price and of course we fear losing it. Another very human attitude is to avoid all the unpleasant things and situations entering in our life.

 

This is a clear „fight or flight” situation and we respond to it with stretching our muscles and pulling up our shoulders. Overstretched muscles are lacking sufficient blood flow thus will not receive fresh nutrients and oxygen. The essential detoxing process will be unable to be smooth, muscles will be getting rigid, their performance can decrease and they can be easily injured. It can trigger a lot of pain in muscles and all over the body, and this could be one of the reasons a person develops lower back or neck-shoulder pain as well. There are several ways to release stress such as: regular physical exercise, sport, yoga, relaxation, meditation and massage.

 

3 in 1: massage, relaxation and adjustment

 

Yumeiho therapy is an extremly powerful method to slacken the spasm in your body and relax your mind at the same time.

.Sections of the spine column and pelvis are usually deformed by the spasm. As part of Yumeiho treatment it will be adjusted through almost the same knacks what chiropractors and osteopaths apply.

Therapeutic massage increases the production of endorphins, your body’s natural “feel good” chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that helps to overcome stress in your life and to achieve a healthier lifestyle in long term.
