Client Testimonials

Neck, Shoulders and leg pain

Gabriel’s suffered from severe neck, shoulder and leg pains and also got ‘growing pains’ in his feet almost every day (especially at night). He didn’t sleep right through the night and often had strange and scary dreams.. His mom could not believe the transformation in her son since he completed his 3 sessions with Kathy, one of our Body Stress Release practitioners. Gabriel seems to be so much more at ease with himself, happy, more confident and much calmer. He is sleeping better and is much more energized. He even gets up before his mother in the mornings, makes his bed and has his breakfast without any nagging from her at all.

48 year old Julian* was experiencing such intense calf pain that he was unable to walk. He was not aware of any pain in his lower back. A week of traction in hospital had not eased the problem.

The final session was 3 days after that. Within two weeks Julian* was pain-free and was able to return to work.

Lower-back, mid-back and neck stress

Dianne* (10) could not sit still in class, nor were her mark very good. A BSR assesment detected body stress in the lower-back, mid-back and neck, which came as a surprise as she never complained to her parents about this. After some months of BSR, her marks improved and she was no longer the class troublemaker. Her body stress had caused her to constantly feel irritated and uneased, leading to her feeling distracted most of the time. She did not verbalise this, as it was her normal state of being.
