Anxiety is felt by everyone at some stage of their life or in some situations, as it is your body’s natural response to potential threats, but when it occurs all the time or on a daily basis, then it becomes a problem. Mostly it comes from an internal source, e.g. worrying about an exam, performance at work , negative self talk. Anxiety releases the same stress hormones such as cortisol as if you are in danger triggering the flight/flight process. Your brain plays a big role in ongoing anxiety, especially the amygdala and hippocampus. The emotional memories are stored in the amygdala which then alerts the rest of the brain that a threat is present and trigger a fear or anxiety response. This is where Kinesiology can help; it takes the emotional trauma off the memory, so that this response is not triggered. Not forgetting the hippocampus which encodes threatening events into memories.
Kinesiology can help re-program your circuits so that everyday events are not perceived as dangerous. This heightened awareness is caused by both genetics and environment. You may come from a family that is sensitive to their environment (e.g. someone has lived through a war or had major trauma in their lives), this can be carried down on the genetics and materialise as anxiety in this generation. Also you may have grown up living with abuse (mentally or physically) which has heightened your “alert” state. There is no one cause , but an accumulation of events that brings us to a state in which anxiety can affect our lives. It is thought that most anxiety goes untreated as we just “soldier –on” , or start living diminished lives to not expose ourselves to situations that are too hard to handle. Social anxiety is a huge problem these days and generally anxiety is said to be 800 times more prevalent than all cancers.
Kinesiology can help release the trauma in the body and help bring the brain and adrenals back into balance by de-stressing your energy system, releasing the emotions attached to past memories and strengthening your system. Everyone is different and has their own accumulation of stress, memories and programs that are inhibiting their lives, and using kinesiology to follow that path is the best way I think to resolve anxiety in your life. To give you an idea of how I can help you have included a couple of small excerpts from two of my past clients:
Dear Anne, This letter is to say a very big thank you. When I came to see you I was very lost. Kinergetics has helped me so much, it has turned my life around. Since seeing you I have become more confident and more sure of my abilities. My obsessive compulsive behaviour with pegs is no longer a problem and after 16 years I was able to say my x-husbands name. These had all been a huge problem for me but not any more. I thought that the only thing I could do was be a mother and wife, but since then I have completed my first year of studies to be a Crystal Therapist. My sister has commented on how I have changed and how wonderful it is.Love Barbara.
When I initially went to see Anne I was suffering from panic attacks and my daily life was full of constant anxiety as well as Phobias that I was struggling to understand or able to live with it .I was to the point where it was limiting what I could do in my every day life, through my treatment with Anne and techniques I learnt through her, my whole life has turned around, I have learnt to deal with my phobias, conquer my fears, my everyday life is free of any anxiety and I am loving life. Lisa,
