The effect(s) of stress (muscular tension, digestive problems, low immunity, depression,…) is the result of the body’s exposure to the stress response (fight, flight, freeze) which in term is triggered following the brains interpretation of a stressor(s) (trauma, worrying, work overload,…).
The effect(s) of stress is in correlation to i.a. the length of exposure, one’s personal coping mechanism and the state of stress at the moment.
The stress response is a series of involuntary neuro-hormonal (adrenaline, cortisol, vagal tone,…) changes that have an impact on the heart, bronchi, vascular system, organs, muscles, immunity system, cognition and behaviour to help us to survive.
When the stressor has ceased the body needs time to reset itself to its allostatic balance – a state where it can react according to the need. The recovery – unlike what we might think – is a long, slow process as it is part of our biology adapted to what life was like thousands of years ago and which hasn’t gone to any major changes since Pleistocene times.
“The rate of cultural change since the evolution of the Homo Sapiens is astonishing, but in the face of that rate of change, there has been no sufficient time for many new and successful genetic adaptations to occur.”
“Every day we play out behaviours that have been part of the human experience for a very long time. Yet these behaviours are played out in an arena that is far from removed from that in which they evolved…. creating conflict between our evolved psychological predispositions and the dictates of modern culture.”
“Reaset: The return of Ease” is a self-healing modality that facilitates and acts as a catalyst (speeds-up) the recovery of the neuro-hormonal system to an allostatic balance. By practicing this on a regular basis you’re helping your biology to reset itself more efficiently and thus thus reduce the effects of stress.
“Reaset Body-Coaching” as a therapy goes one step further, it offers a helping hand to the neuro-hormonal, musculo-skeletal, organ and biofield systems to return to ease (allostatic balance). Reaset Body-Coaching also offers information how you can further help yourself.
