About the BSR Consultation

How a Body Stress Release consultation works

body stress release practitioner in consultation with client
Body Stress Release is carried out in a professional setting in a private consulting room.

The practitioner will give a brief explanation of how BSR works, to dispel any misconceptions and show that the technique does not involve anything mysterious or mystical.

While remaining fully clothed, the client will lie face down on a specially designed BSR couch.

The practitioner will perform a series of light pressure tests, using the body as a biofeedback mechanism, to assess the exact location and direction of body stress.

The testing process does not require any action from the client. The practitioner is trained specifically to monitor the body’s neuromuscular response to the stress tests.

The practitioner will then release the body stress, using their hands, with a light but definite pressure, thereby restoring the two-way communication between the brain and the affected area.

In BSR we realize “more is not better” – the application of a stimulus along a line of stress does not need to be forceful, but simply accurate. BSR is light enough to never override the body’s natural protective resistance.

After the releases, the practitioner will explain the relevance of stressed areas, for example, a person with numb or tingling hands can see the connection from the painful lower neck to the hands.

Depending on the findings, the practitioner may give the client some guidance on how to maximize the benefit of the BSR sessions and avoid recurrence of body stress.

Note – BSR is not a diagnosis or treatment of any condition or disease. It is merely concerned with locating and releasing stored tension, so that the body is assisted in its in-built capacity to heal and maintain itself.

Preparing for your BSR Consultation

Practice etiquette and initial phase

Please ensure that you arrive on time. Clients who arrive late, may be asked to reschedule, and will be charged in full, as it may interfere with the next client. Arriving later than 15 minutes means that the session can not be completed and must be rescheduled, however it is still charged in full.

First consultation lasts 1 hour. Subsequent consultations last 45min to 1 hour, depending on what the body requires.
Note – During the release, you will remain fully clothed and you can keep your shoes on.

Kind request – Please refrain from using perfume or aftershave before session.

As BSR and self healing is a process, your commitment to a minimum of three sessions is required.

These are booked as follows;

Day 1 Initial consultation, assessment and release

Day 4 Follow-up for adaptations, assessment and release

Day 11 Assessment and release

There is a possibility of an additional consultation between Day 4 and Day 11, depending on the body’s adjustment after the release.

Maintenance consultations = Monthly or six weekly

Just left us a 5 star review

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!

Ellana Delport

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.

Frances Boshoff

Nadine Minnaar

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.
