Most of our stress comes from our mind and unbalances our body’s functioning and its natural energy flow. Our posture and body structure than start to be compromised: we may feel emotionally low and our physiological body becomes unbalanced. The toxins we take in through unhealthy diet, repeated strenuous movements or environmental pollution are absorbed and create little “communities” in the weaker parts of our body. They also get stuck on meridians where the energy is depleted or even flooded. The best way to unlock these “communities” is by working deeply over those points, unlocking the spine, balancing the chakras, opening the blocked channels and purifying the toxic tissues. After this opening process, Stefanie then orchestrates the whole body-mind-spirit system into a harmonious balance. The result is a new-found freedom of movement, mental freshness and total body expansiveness.
