Exercise and Unified Therapy™
Did you know that psychological or emotional stress has been very much tied to how much muscular tension there is in the body?  We also realize that the everyday toxic stress that we accumulate is also related to that and to so many sports, recurring injuries and chronic conditions.

If you don't address that accumulated stress, then you're only superficially getting to the problem and won't have full recovery.

Unreleased accumulative stress (allostatic load) is overwhelming to a person and can make you sick.  It's like poison; in can come from a job environment, relationships, family and even too much exercise.  It upsets your hormonal balance, disrupts sleep cycle, lowers T-cell count and keeps you in a state of "survival mode"; constant stress doesn't allow your body to recover, it can even change your brain.
When your stress hormones stay up, it’s catabolic - your body breaks down, injuries persist, you don’t recover, you don't sleep, and it affects the level of healing in your whole body. 

Learning how to adapt with adversity is an important part of a healthy body, brain and nervous system.  While moderate, short-lived stress responses in the body can promote growth, toxic stress is detrimental to our health and is one of the major causes of illness and even death.

In Unified Therapy™ we help drop the stress load systemically; affecting all bodily systems, cells and tissues to promote the body's self-healing mechanism. 
At Integrative Bodywork, we can help you with: 

  • Ending the Cycle of Pain 
  • Mobility and Strength 
  • Maximizing Performance 
  • Post Rehabilitation 
  • Prevention of Future Injuries 
  • Improved Post-Workout Recovery

“Suppressing or managing symptoms without treating the etiology of a condition moves one further away from true healing.”
Toxic Stress - How it Affects the Body and the Brain
While exercise, yoga and meditation are often useful ways to reverse the effects of stress, these methods don't go far enough. Unified Therapy™ can take you a bit further. We not only deal with the physical body, but also the release of the accumulation of everyday toxic, psychological and emotional stress. When you release all those together, you can speed up recovery, maximize your athletic performance and promote long term wellness.
