Body Stress in the Neck

Causes of body stress in the neck

Mechanical: Tension could be caused by sudden jerks from falls or accidents, especially from whiplash in a motor vehicle accident, or accumulative stress such as working in a hunched position or reading with a book on your lap, or propped up on pillows in bed. Be careful of the basin at your hairdresser. Nowadays due to the amount of time we spend on cellphones, texting also has a huge effect on tension in the neck.

Emotional: The neck is especially vulnerable to emotional or mental stress, as the tensing of the shoulders in a defensive posture affects the neck muscles adversely.

Chemical: The neck is extremely susceptible to this, probably because the spinal cord is the thickest in this area. It is caused by exposure to toxic substances by inhalation, ingestion or direct contact with the skin.

Effects of body stress in the neck

Effects may include the following;

  • Headaches
  • Stiffness and difficulty rotating the neck
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy
  • Pain/numbness or tingling sensations in the shoulder, arm or hand
  • Vision could be affected
  • Sense of taste and smell

The phrenic nerve to the diaphragm arises from the cervical spine, so involuntary breathing could also be affected.

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.
