Stress

stress123rf75% of illness is believed to be caused by stress and tension.

Stress affects many systems of the body and if stress is chronic or long term then it can affect our health and wellbeing. Often it is stress that is causing our physical ailments such as IBS and headaches.

I’m passionate about helping people reduce the effects of stress in their lives as I’ve experienced it for myself and know how debilitating it can be on your day to day life.

It’s important to find constructive ways to counteract stress. Drinking extra alcohol, eating more or less, using stimulants such as excessive caffeine or the use of recreational drugs are common but destructive ways of getting through the day as they put more pressure on our body.

Constructive Self Help Methods

We need downtime in order for the body to function properly. Spending too much time in fight or flight mode means we neglect our own needs in order to just get things done. The constant stress we are under disrupts the balance our body needs for all the body systems to work together in harmony.

Reflexology & Indian Head Massage

Reflexology & Indian Head Massage gives us the downtime our body craves and by relaxing us on the physical and emotional level. Both treatments enable our body to function more efficiently and stimulate it’s own healing mechanisms. The body restores it’s natural balance and the physical symptoms that stress generates can therefore reduce.

Reflexology & Indian Head Massage help us cope with the stresses of daily life by relieving tension, improving our mood and aiding sleep.

All of these benefits lead to a general improvement in our sense of wellbeing which means we deal with life more positively and effectively.

It works for me! Want to try it? I complete a confidential consultation with all clients & we’ll discuss how the treatments can most help you most & I’ll give you some hints and tips on how to manage the stress in your life in between your sessions.

Hints & Tips

Here’s a few general ideas for you to try straight away:

  • Regular Exercise – Try to do something like a walk or a team sport a few times a week. Choose something you enjoy so it doesn’t seem like a chore. 
  • Healthy Eating – you may be craving unhealthy foods but eating the right healthy foods help us manage stress the best.
  • Creative Hobbies – Bake a cake or drawing. Anything which you enjoy that isn’t work is good for you.

Testimonials

“Having been trying to conceive for quite some time I contacted Rebecca. Within three months I fell pregnant. I would recommend reflexology with Rebecca to anyone who is trying to have a baby, it is very relaxing and I’m sure it made a difference for me."

Nicky, Winnersh 

"I want to shout from the rooftops about a lovely lady I think each and every one of you should go to. Without going into lots of details my partner and I struggled with fertility problems for over 3 years, we tried everything from conventional medicines and homeopathic remedies. The month I finally fell pregnant naturally I was having weekly reflexology sessions with the lovely Rebecca Hogan at Relax Rebalance and I believe this is the main thing that helped us to conceive. Rebecca is such a lovely, kind, throughtful and caring person and I will carry on seeing her throughout my pregnancy and beyond. If your not struggling from fertility problems she can help with stress, anxiety and other problems as well, she is a wonderwoman!! A massive thank you to Rebecca who without I couldn't imagine sitting here staring at my first scan picture xxx"
