How can I reduce my stress and anxiety levels?

I am passionate about helping people to live their life with less stress and to empower them to put their mental health and well-being on their to-do list.

Over the past 12 years whilst working as a complementary therapist I have worked with hundreds of people from different walks of life and the main thing they have in common are high levels of stress, anxiety or worry. After their first treatment session many people report having:-

  • better sleep
  • more focus and mental clarity
  • feelings of calmness and being more in control
  • a reduction in their physical aches and pains
  • a reduction in their stress, anxiety or worry levels.

By working with me over a series of treatment sessions, many people have been able to successfully reduce their stress, worry and anxiety levels.

Most people find it hard to put themselves first so when they’re feeling stressed, anxious or worried they don’t appreciate that by putting themselves on their to-do list and making some simple changes to their lifestyle habits, their health would improve. I recently had a client just like this. Let’s call her Maxine.

Maxine’s Story

Maxine used Google to find a reiki treatment in Tamworth. She didn’t know much about reiki but had heard it was a relaxing treatment for the mind and body. She found my website and liked the fact that I had had experience using reiki to support people with stress related conditions and I had also used reiki in a caring setting.

At her consultation Maxine explained that after over 40 years in a caring profession and retirement approaching, she was lacking in self-confidence which was causing her to feel anxious. She wanted to look forward to the opportunity of have some time to herself without feeling guilty.

After a full consultation I explained that it wasn’t uncommon for Maxine to feel anxious about her future. Retirement is a major life changing event and as such can be very stresful. Feeling stress or anxious can cause you to have physical and/or emotional conditions such as:-

  • skin rashes
  • upset stomach
  • aches and pains
  • increased blood pressure
  • difficulty sleeping.

Some of which Maxine was experiencing. A reiki treatment was agreed as it would help her to relax which would also allow her time to refocus and calm her thoughts.

After the first treatment Maxine felt relaxed and calm and decided to visit my clinic in Tamworth every two weeks.  She felt more treatments sessions would continue to boost her self-confidence as well as give her the opportunity to take time out and relax physically.

By having regular, relaxing reiki (and some reflexology) treatments twice a month and combining this with additional activities, Maxine started to feel like her old self again and started to enjoy her retirement. After three months Maxine moved onto having one treatment a month and she now continues to return to see me monthly as it allows her to have some pre-planned me-time every month.

Managing stress with treatment Courses
