General Adaption Syndrome (GAS)

I don’t think you can under rate the stress we cope with on a daily basis with causing many of the illnesses we cope with in our lives. In Kinesioology we learn about the General Adaption Syndrome (GAS) the predicable nature of long term and short term stress.  Dr Hans Selye (1907-1982) wrote about stress as a major cause of disease and wrote about the 3 stages the body goes through to adapt.

Alarm – sympathetic nervous system fight or flight, adrenal insufficiency.

Resistance – Body compensates for stress forming a holding pattern retaining stress within.

Exhaustion – the stress continues beyond the bodies capacity to cope and illness forms.

‘’Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older” Hans Selye MD PHD

In kinesiology I use an emotion from the 5 element chart along with a clear affirmation or statement of what it is you hope to achieve by clearing issues. So with every balance the body has a little bit less stress. Bring back the balance into your life.

Both Kinesiology and Remedial Massage can help you to feel like you again.
