Anxiety & Stress Therapies at The Body Matters

It would seem that stress and anxiety are an unavoidable part of everyday life but it does not mean they have to rule your life. There are a variety of techniques available to help you manage or overcome the physical, emotional or psychological symptoms experienced with stress and anxiety.

Some people might say that there is a time and place where a certain amount of stress is a good thing, but there are times when it can be too much, and the feelings or symptoms are too overwhelming.  

Stress can affect people in different ways; these are some conditions that can be brought on by stress:

  • Headaches
  • High susceptibility to colds, flu and illness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hair loss
  • Obesity
  • Feelings of being unable to cope
  • Heart Disease
  • And there are many more... 

A combination of diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques can change how your body reacts to stress and anxiety.  At The Body Matters, we offer the following to help overcome the symptoms and in most cases the cause of stress.


Hypnotherapy has been used for many years to help reduce stress levels, and there are a variety of techniques used to help.  

One technique will promote a permanent change to a reaction to stress. This technique can be quite challenging but is extremely rewarding especially when the changes are obvious to see. And there are other techniques that can be taught so the client can practise at home. There are a number of other techniques in between… the therapist and client work together to discuss the best options available.

It has been proven that a massage is a great stress buster. Sometimes it only takes one session to alleviate pain and relax your stressed and tired out muscles. Massage will give you more energy and can help reduce fatigue and can even improve your memory! 

All of The Body Matters massage therapists are full-time massage therapists and know precisely where our clients hold tension in their body, we can feel it in our client's body as we work and instinctively know the areas to work on and the correct pressure to apply.

Movement Therapy

We know that body and mind are connected. Yet often we still attempt to treat physical and emotional issues separately. Movement Therapy & Coaching reunites your body and mind, empowering you to make the most of life, healthily, and content with who you are.

The Feldenkrais Method is named after its founder, Dr Moshe Feldenkrais. He realised the vital importance of working with the whole self in order to achieve lasting improvement, recognising the essential inseparability of mind and body, and eventually gave up his career as a distinguished scientist to devote himself to his pioneering somatic work.
