Body Stress in Pregnancy, Babies and Children

Body Stress in Pregnancy

As pregnancy advances, there is increasing tension in the lower back, which is usually referred upwards to the shoulder-blade area or the neck but can refer down the legs as well. Besides relieving these aches and pains, Body Stress Release plays an important role in helping the body prepare itself for the birth. By minimizing the compression in the lumbar spine, there is improved communication in the whole pelvic region.

Many women experience difficult births while they have back problems. After undergoing BSR care during the subsequent pregnancy, they have found the birth process much easier.
If the birth process was difficult, a baby may be born with body stress, especially in the neck and lower spine. Small children are also likely to accumulate body stress as a result of frequent falls and jerks while playing.

How do you recognize stress in babies and children?

Babies – constant crying for no apparent reason, constipation, vomiting, lack of sleep.

Toddlers – complaints of sore legs (often referred to as growing pains), not wanting to walk far distances, bed-wetting, gnashing of teeth, constipation, fidgeting, lack of concentration.

Children enjoy the BSR experience as it is a gentle technique and they become aware of how different they feel once the stored tension has been released. Often a small child will be aware of body stress and will ask to be taken for a BSR session. Babies and children also respond quickly to BSR, as the pressure has not been present in the body for a long period and is readily released.

Body Stress in children and teens

Hunched over posture while reading or studying, or spending time on cellphones, laptops or I-pads will induce stress in the neck and lower back, as will a half-lying position while watching television.
Teenagers become more self-conscious and may develop poor posture due to hunched shoulders as a defence mechanism against social challenges and stresses of life.

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.

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.
