When a peson spends hours sitting at a desk, driving or in meetings, tension can accumulate in the areas of the body most vulnerable to stress, such as head, neck, shoulders and back.

Stress and tension can also have a debilitating effect on the immune system, predisposing people to colds and other diseases because when we are in a constant state of alert, healing and tissue repair are inhibited.  The key to stress relief is therefore relaxation as healing can only take place when the body is at rest. 

Holistic therapies such as IHM, and chair massage can help clients to manage their stress, as they provide a period of time away from everyday stresses in order to relax and regain a sense of physical and emotional  balance.                    A combination of relaxation and holistic therapy can relieve tension and stress and allow the bodies energies to flow more freely.  When the body reaches a state of relaxation, tense muscles start to unknot, blood pressure starts to lower, breathing becomes more regular and deeper and the mind drifts into a state of passive  awareness.

IHM, and chair massage is particularly effective as an antidote to stress as it relaxes the mind and body, and can help with anxiety, tension and many stress related conditions.


"Mental health is defined as a state of wellbeing in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community"

(World Health Organisation, 2011)
