Stress, trauma and the mind-body

How does stress cause illness?

The human body is not just a biological machine that carries the brain around: the mind and body are inseparably linked, some even say they are the same. The mind profoundly influences the body through many biological mechanisms, including the nervous system, the immune system and hormones. Knowledge of this mind-body connection is important for understanding why we experience very real bodily sensations or physical health conditions in certain mental and emotional circumstances. It also helps to explain how working on the body can help improve mental and... moreread more

Tension Release Exercises (TRE)

Tension Release Exercises (TRE) allow the body to let go of the past
