Frequently asked questions about body stress release
“I’ve had multiple operations and procedures – can BSR still help me?
Yes – most definitely. The BSR practitioner will ask you for details of your procedure and may ask you to bring your medical reports or X-Rays to the first consult. We do not work directly on replacements but we do release areas of stored tension in surrounding areas which will assist in optimising mobility and function.
Do I have to get undressed or wear and special clothing?
The client remains fully clothed, with shoes on, for the entire process – there’s no need for any special clothing, just dress comfortably.
Can you work with my new born baby? Can you work on someone really frail?
BSR is so gentle it is suitable for all, from babies to the elderly.
Can you work with someone who is wheel chair bound?
Some practitioners have a special wheel-chair friendly bed but most practitioners will work with a wheel chair client if the person comes with an assistant or career to help them on to the BSR couch.
How many sessions will I need?
You will need to commit to 3 appointments : After the first appointment as body stress is released there is usually a re-arrangement of muscle tension which needs to be attended to 3 days later. Thereafter a follow up appointment is scheduled for approximately one week’s time.
It’s impossible to predict how many appointments are needed for full recovery as each client comes with a different set of circumstances (and history). A client’s recovery rate may also be dependent on the client following certain guidelines regards posture and sporting activities and the client getting sufficient rest (particularly in initial stages of the process). However most people will start to notice some changes in the first few consults.
Note: Body Stress Release is not a diagnosis or treatment of any condition or disease. It is concerned ONLY with locating and releasing stored tension, so that the body is assisted in its in-built ability to maintain and heal itself. Restoring the body’s communication system is a process and could take time.
