Stress is a general part of everyday life in the modern world, but it is how we deal with and control stress that is the key. What is a stress to one person, may not be to another and our mechanisms for dealing with and handling stress vary. Indeed stress can be a good thing and should not always be perceived in a negative light. In the face of danger our in-built stress mechanism is what kicks in to protect us from harm.
At BOP we see many patients whom are experiencing stress and stress related conditions. With some stress may have been the final trigger to their problem and with others it may be the reason why they have come to see us in the first place.
Treatments like massage, reflexology, hypnotherapy and counselling can both make us feel better, make us more relaxed and improve our mood. Stress management may also help us to deal better with stress. Hypnotherapy can assist with combating negative thoughts and limiting beliefs.
