We live in clickbait times. It’s exhausting, the constant pleas for attention; it confuses our stress responders and scrambles our ability to make smart decisions. More people are looking at treatments for adrenal fatigue. There’s good news though, you can fix it for free! Just go to sleep. That’s right, sleeping for two REM cycles (usually 7-9 hours) and our body’s amazing self-repair mechanisms kick in to restore our full function again.

But then you spend another day exposing yourself to constant stress.

And another.

And another.

Soon it’s a month, a year, a decade, and you find yourself in a doctor’s office being told your stress levels are exacerbating a medical condition.

How do you repair the damage of stress? You can’t do it with pedicures, binge-watching television, or going on vacation once a year. Nothing wrong with any of these activities – they just don’t effectively treat your body for stress in the longterm.

Stress is a biological and chemical event in the body that happens in our Sympathetic Nervous System (home of the fight/flight/freeze response). After our body uses these stress chemicals to solve a problem, we also have the capability to repair the side effects with our Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS). I love that our bodies have a built-in self-healing mechanism….and I love shiatsu because it’s an hour of engaging with your PSNS, so your body can repair itself!

Don’t let that stress accumulate. Book a session today.
