How well do you handle stress? 

Do you feel overwhelmed, have anxiety or depression, constantly feeling under pressure? 

Stress is a word we hear so frequently now it has become a normal state of being for many people.  Leading us to believe in our fast-paced world it is only natural. Stress doesn’t have to be bad for our health, how we handle and think about stress is the key.

Short term stress can have positive benefits including:

  • Helping us to concentrate, increasing productivity
  • Releasing adrenalin and increasing blood sugar to give us a boost of energy
  • Giving the immune system a short boost to prevent illness
  • Increasing our resilience

Chronic stress, meaning long term stress, is when it can start impacting our health. Known side effects of chronic stress include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Weakened immune system
  • Poor concentration
  • Issues with sleep
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Food choices, over or under eating

About Ruth Hotson

After suffering from digestive issues for over 15 years and taking many different paths to find some relief, Ruth went to see a kinesiologist and saw a dramatic improvement overnight.

This led her to study and qualify in progressive kinesiology as well as additional studies in evidence-based EFT (tapping), body typing, environmental stress, pain management, reiki and nutrition.

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology uses muscle testing to pinpoint any areas of stress in the body and find the root cause. It helps restore balance within the body using techniques such as EFT (tapping), and utilising acupressure points, chakras and flower essences.

Progressive kinesiology is a truly holistic therapy working to bring balance to your nutritional, structural, emotional and energetic needs.
