Breathe Yourself to Sleep

Posted on 21 January, 2015 at 7:05 Comments comments (0)

Sleep is often one of the first things to suffer when we are stressed. And without sleep we feel less equipped to deal with whatever is causing the stress in the first place. It is a truly vicious cycle, one which can become more and more debilitating over time.


The following article explains a tried and tested method for beating those insomniac tendencies. It's a technique I use myself, very successfully, and one which can be mastered, along with many other practical ways of protecting yourself from the effects of stress, on Unwind's Stress Management programme.

What's in a Name?

Several people have asked me why I chose the name 'Unwind' for my new venture. The name of a business is so important, so it was a decision that took a little time. I wanted to find something that succinctly described what I stand for, a name that quickly gives an idea of what a client can expect.


The dictionary defines 'to unwind' as to relax after a period of work or tension. This is just what I aim to help my clients do. Our modern lifestyle does not lend itself to relaxation, and computers, driving and an increasingly stressful world leave people feeling taut, fraught, uncomfortable and even in pain. Helping my clients manage these things is what I do best.


However, 'unwinding' is also a bodywork phenomenon. It refers to a mind/body healing process, whereby physical release also provides emotional benefits; and vice versa. Physical unwinding can manifest as involuntary twitching or shaking, or in profound cases, like a full body yawn. Emotional unwinding can feel like drifting memories, sensations of deja vu, tearfulness and even laughing or singing! Each client's unwinding will be individual and unique to them, it can be surprising and unexpected, but in the hands of a compassionate and experienced bodywork therapist it will feel beneficial, necessary and oh so very good!


I am here to help you unwind, in both senses of the word.


So that is why I chose the name Unwind. I hope you like it.


A Solution for Pain

Anyone who has received a gentle, flowing, intuitive relaxation massage will be convinced of the comfort and pleasure of therapeutic touch. But did you know that massage can be equally beneficial for the treatment of many soft-tissue related pain conditions?

Using a variety of techniques including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, advanced stretching and hot stone therapy can provide long-lasting relief from many acute and chronic aches and pains including conditions such as arthritis, migraine, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, fibromyalgia and ME, and more.

I bring to the village over a decade of experience of working with soft-tissue and systemic pain conditions. As a well qualified and compassionate therapist with a variety of tools in my bodywork toolkit, I look forward to meeting local residents and discussing how I may be able to help.
