01

Increased Wellbeing

Due to gentle stimulation of the nervous system, the two-way communication between your brain and body is improved as muscle tension eases and pressure lifts off the nerves.
02

Better Sleep

Experience improved sleep, due to proper functioning of the system that allows healing to occur as we sleep. Muscle relaxation and nerve decompression allows for resting and digestion.
03

Relief from Pain

Muscle aches and pains are alleviated as the locked-in tension is released, muscles return to optimal flexibility and pressure eases off the nerves.
04

Release of Tension

Headaches, short or long-term can be a thing of the past, or managed without having to take medication chronically, as the tension eases in the neck, jaw and cranial area.

I have been going to Retha for Body Stress Release on a regular basis and I cannot explain how my body feels after BSR sessions with her... I can only say that it is how I always imagined my body was supposed to feel ... light, pain free, comfortable. Thank you Retha! You are truly amazing!

Retha is really professional. I had 3 sessions with her just before lockdown... and it was really amazing. I could feel the tension and stress leaving. I suffered from upper back..and lower neck pain for almost 6 months on and off...and it was gone immediately after the first session with her...came back a bit a few days later...but then gone so far after session 3 now for 3 weeks! I can really highly recommend her.

Retha is passionate about body stress release. Listens to you and finds the best treatment. I would definitely recommend her.

After falling of my horse and collided with steel poles i could barely move. Hurt my shoulder, elbow and coccyx quite badly and extremely sore muscles i went to see Retha. Within hours after my first session i could move around and sore muscles were not as bad. She also pointed out some other issues i had and worked on them as well. Within a few days my elbow and shoulder were good to go and i could go back to my normal routine of riding and working.

Some BSR Client Experiences

My sessions with Retha Bodenstein on mainly my right side sciatic nerve has been very satisfactory , her treatment is very soothing and I feel a lot more comfortable. I will continue with BSR.

I experienced a numb feeling in my hand and struggled to make a fist because of a problem with the C3 vertebrae in my neck after an accident. An orthopedic surgeon wanted to do an operation. After a couple of sessions my hand felt much better and the numbness largely disappeared. I was not only impressed with the healing method but also with the care and dedication of Retha. I can recommend her as your BSR practitioner.

Why should I consider Body Stress Release?

Body Stress Release is a non-therapeutic complementary health profession. It is concerned with assisting the body to release stored tension, thereby allowing it to maximize its built-in ability to heal and also maintain itself. This technique has been developed and practised in South Africa since 1981.

Stress becomes locked into physical structures when the body fails to adapt to an overload of stress. This may result in pain, stiffness, numbness and postural distortions. In addition the body’s capacity to co-ordinate its functions is undermined.

Body Stress Release is a gentle, non-invasive technique where areas of body stress are located, using the body as a biofeedback mechanism. The practitioner assists the body to release the tension by applying light but precise and definite pressure to the sites of body stress.

Body Stress Release may assist in releasing tension, lifting pressure off the nervous system and improving two-way communication between the brain and body, thus leading to improved self-healing.

Note * Complementary not alternative – These two terms are often used interchangeable, as in “complementary medicine” or “alternative health-care”. They are, in fact, two quite distinct approaches and should not be confused. “Alternative” implies “instead of”, in other words, you attend an alternative practitioner in place of your doctor.

Body Stress Release stands squarely under the title “complementary”. It is a health-care profession that works alongside medicine, in cooperation, not in competition. It can enhance function while the person undergoes medical treatment, e.g. a doctor sets a broken leg, and the BSR practitioner releases the body stress which locked into the back during the accident, or that results from walking in a cast.

The BSR practitioner does not in any way diagnose or treat conditions, nor give advice on the process of a disease – that is the field of medicine. BSR does not try to duplicate any part of medical services.

Wednesday wisdom Health is not merely the absence of pain, it is body, mind and spirit working together on optimal levels. Body Stress Release assists your body to release locked in tension caused by an overload of physical, chemical or mental and emotional stress. This leads to muscles tightening in a protective action, which can lead to compression on the nerves, thereby hampering effective two-way communication in the nervous system. Through gentle stimulus, while the client is fully clothed, the body can relax the protection and improve self-healing. In existence since 1987, BSR has assisted thousands of clients with pain relief and stress management. Why not give this gentle, yet effective complementary health technique a try?
