This is one way to interrupt stress: no matter what is going on, how busy you are, or what the news of the day reports, take a moment and pay attention to what you love. Really take it in and allow yourself to be nourished by it.
“Interrupt stress and do it frequently.”
This is something internationally-recognized reflexologist, author and researcher Kevin Kunz talks about a lot. Kunz says the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, and because of this, reflexology is an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium.
The benefits of reflexology (and Reiki!) have to do with the reduction of stress–both general stress and very specific stress. For example, when you come for a reflexology session usually you walk away (pun intended!) feeling refreshed and relaxed overall. If you come with a specific issue: neck/shoulder/back pain or digestive problems, for example, I use specific protocols to support and relieve stress in these areas.
Try This: The Golfball Technique
This is a great technique to use between sessions, especially if you have digestive issues, sinus headaches, allergies, diabetes, or asthma. And it only takes a minute. Do it once or twice a day.
All you need is a golf ball: watch this super-short video to see it for yourself.
Hold a golf ball in your hand. Clasp your hands together interlinking fingers. Roll the golf ball over the palms of your hands. Focus on the palm of the hand below the thumb for headaches, sinus headaches and problems, allergies and hay fever. Focus on the heel of the hand for digestive upset.
Your Next Session
If you need a way to interrupt your stress, book a session or package series, to help keep you in balance.
And feel free to ask me at your next session about other self-help techniques that will help you interrupt stress.
