Everyone is stressed these days for a ton of reasons. I don’t think that there’s a single person in this world who is stress-free. We are stressed due to our hectic everyday schedules, our responsibilities, finances, health issues, all kinds of personal problems and more. Chronic stress is one of the most common health conditions in the whole world. I wish people would leave their misconceptions behind and try out alternative treatments to the good ol’ stress-relieve medication.
I found out about the Ottawa Massage Therapy while I was desperately searching online for a solution to my chronic stress condition. I am a financial executive for a massive company, and as you can imagine, I have a lot of responsibility on my shoulders. But I also have a lot of stressful events to deal with, and this managed to take a toll on my health. After finding out about Kinetic Edge clinic, I researched everything I possibly could about the Rolf Method targeted at curing chronic stress, and I was impressed. I decided that I have to give this a try so I picked up the phone and I made an appointment to visit the clinic.
The First Appointment
Richard Stannard was my doctor, and I will always be thankful for the day I met him. During my first appointment, I discussed all of my problems with him just to make him understand what exactly is wrong with me and I was all excited when he told me that de guarantees that I’ll feel better soon. He is specialized in Rolf Method, and he is also a Registered Massage Therapist.
He explained to me that Rolf Method of Structural Integration mostly focuses on correcting the myofascial layers in the body and it can affect your posture and the spinal curvature as well. It also creates a more efficient muscle system, and it can restore the regular patterns of movement. All these are the main effects of the Rolf Method along with stress reduction and enhancing the neurological functioning. This is a bit different from the Massage Therapy, and I learned this during the first appointment.
The Rolf Method managed to improve my body posture, and I also learned that it focused more on the connective structures. In other words, after my first session, I felt an overall ease of my body, and this was because the connective tissue became more organized. My feelings of stress decreased from the first session of Rolf Method with Dr. Richard Stannard.
My Overall Experience
After visiting the Kinetic Edge clinic for about a month now, I can say that without a doubt that my overall health feels restored and I know that this is thanks to the fact that I’m not as stressed as I used to be. As you probably know, stress is the primary trigger of all kinds of physical problems, and this is why it’s crucial to try and remain stress-free as much as possible. Dr. Stannard told me that based on this connection between the mind and the body lots of counselors and therapists incorporate the Rolfing technique in their therapeutic approach and the first thing that popped in my mind was to suggest this to one of my friends who is a counselor.
After taking advantage of Kinetic Edge’s services for stress relief for almost a year now, I recommend that anyone who wants to improve their overall quality of life to give their solutions a try. They also perform chiropractic adjustments, dry needling, massage, physiotherapy and more alternative treatments for all kinds of physical and emotional issues.
