Bio-Stress Release

Bio-Stress Release is a gentle form of bodywork which releases tension and eases pain.

It works by taking the body back through the movements which were involved with the problem in the first place but under safely controlled circumstances. This is achieved by locating the preferred position for the part affected and then working to undo the damage.

From the preferred position the practitioner can identify precisely what it is that the body is trying to protect. The movements of Bio- Stress Release are made slowly and do not oppose the spontaneous preferences of the body and thus this approach is quite distinct from techniques which involve any sort of forceful adjustment.

In order to relieve tension we work at different angles and move from the physiological movement (movement through which the joint can be taken by the patient him/herself) into the anatomical movement (the extra movement which can safely be found with a minimal amount of applied pressure).

Appropriate movement or touch is applied to the affected part in order to draw the attention of the central nervous system to the specific needs of that particular area. Once a release position is identified then gentle compression into the part is used to further stimulate the proprioceptors and reinforce the message that needs to be sent. In this way we combine muscular and neurological information so as to encourage the body to become aware of its own process and, in due course, to restore balance.

The therapeutic techniques are prefaced with a taking of the patient’s medical history and a visual assessment of the level of symmetry and balance within the body structure.

The treatment itself is conducted with the patient lying on the couch, first face-up and then face-down as we work sequentially through the various parts of the body. In this process we can release tension from the spine, shoulders, hips, knees, pelvis etc so that the body will realign itself.

We recommend that patients continue their treatment at home with very gentle exercise movements that will maintain the correct posture.

The Bio-Stress Release Workshop

Bio-Stress Release is a non-invasive and fast-acting treatment for relieving pain in various parts of the body. The technique guides the body to correct both muscular and skeletal disorder.

When applying the treatment the focus is on identifying the release position that produces comfort and freedom. When this position is located and appropriately held, the body can relax. Once it relaxes, the natural inherent balance of the physical structure can re-assert itself and restore a sense of well-being.

Key Highlights of The Training:

  • Guiding the body to find its own balance without force.
  • Develop confidence to work with clients who have been struggling with various forms of pain for a long time.
  • Learn the emotional and energetic implications of structural imbalance.
  • Help your clients to recognise their ‘stuck’ patterns and facilitate their release.
  • Study trigger points and positional releases for every single part of the body.
  • Offer a treatment that can be given with the clothes on.

Courses are held at Well Park, Belstone, Okehampton, Devon and are led by Susanna Terry

The training requires attendance of two  3-day modules which are normally held Friday through Sunday.

Modules 1 and 2 have the same standard outline but module 2 will also include some more detailed techniques and exercises. After completion of module 1 you will  be able to incorporate the technique into your therapeutic practice immediately.

This is very much a hands-on course and you will be supported in perfecting your skills.

There will be continuous assessment of your work with the techniques. 

When you reach a satisfactory standard you will be given a Bio-Stress Release certificate.

This usually happens at the end of module 2

Bio-Stress Release treatment of a young man aged 17 years

He was complaining of pains in his legs and could neither sit on the floor with his legs out straight nor bend over and touch his knees – let alone touch the ground.

On examining him I found that his spine curved over to the left and that when he tried to bend over, the 7th thoracic would twist slightly and prevent him from bending forwards. He could not straighten his legs even when standing upright.

I discovered that he had grown very rapidly as a young teenager and had cycled everywhere, very rarely walking. Over time he outgrew his bicycle to the point that he could not fully straighten his legs when peddling. As a result he had highly developed thigh muscles and rather short hamstrings and in effect he did not have the elasticity in his leg muscles to allow him to bend forward. Therefore he had to continuously bend to the right to pick things up from the floor and developed the curve in his spine which further limited the extent to which he could bend forward.

He had several BSR treatments and was instructed in exercise techniques to do at home to support the treatment.

I am happy to say that he can now bend forward and touch his ankles with his legs straight.
