Body Stress Release for Children and Teenagers

A mother reported that her twelve-week-old baby had cried almost constantly since birth and hunched his shoulders and screamed when he was moved. Immediately after body stress was released in his neck, the exhausted baby fell asleep for 10 hours. Much to the relief of the distressed parents, he became placid and contented.

Body Stress in Children and Teenagers

Once at school, a child with tension in their neck may lack concentration and become disruptive. If there is pressure in their lower back, they may be restless and unable to sit still. If the nerve supply to the bladder is affected then problems with bed-wetting may occur. Children often sit badly, especially when hunched over a book reading or studying, using a laptop or a hand-held computer console, or when texting or playing games on a mobile phone. Poor posture is a common cause of body stress in the neck and lower back. Many children slump in front of the television in a half-lying/half-sitting “banana shape” which reverses the curve of the lower back. This puts huge pressure on the whole spine causing body stress to become stored in the muscles of the neck, upper and lower back. These days, emotional demands on children and teenagers are considerable. Pressure to do well at school, peer pressure to measure up, and coping with the rollercoaster of hormonal changes can all take their toll. As children approach puberty, they become more self-conscious and this can result in teenagers hunching their shoulders and developing poor posture. This can cause the muscles to tighten and result in tension becoming locked into their bodies. We all know that taking part in sports and regular exercise is healthy. However, pressure to excel can result in injuries which over time may cause tension to become stored in the muscles, leading to pain and discomfort. .
