Today we held our annual conference in London and what an amazing day it was! Connecting, inspiring, fun and informative, it was so great to gather as a community of therapists.
This week's Stress Awareness post is an explanation of the stress response.
While everyone knows the feeling of being stressed, you may not be aware of it's cause. There is a belief that stress is purely psychological - 'all in the mind' - and something we should be able to talk ourselves out of.
This week's Stress Awareness Month item is a summary of the research into the effects of massage on emotional and psychological health. It was prepared by Sarah Bryan and Diana Newson of our research group and shows just how beneficial massage can be for those with depression, anxiety.
This month we'll be highlighting all the ways that massage can help clients to meet and let go of stress, and also talking about what the stress response is and the effects it has on the body and mind. Our members will also run events and special offers throughout the month.
