Repetitive Strain Injuries

(RSI) and associative trauma disorders are terms used to refer to several discrete conditions that can be associated with repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or sustained/awkward positions.

 Some of the conditions are edema, tendinosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, radial tunnel syndrome and focal dystonia.

All associative trauma disorders are due to processes in the body being forced beyond the body's capacity to endure this action. These conditions are the body's way of letting you know it wants you to STOP doing what you are doing or at least think about what you are doing....until it has had time to clear a mechanical response from the nerves and change the chemistry in the affected tissue.

Complementary Natural therapies are of great support in clearing the symptoms of these conditions; Reflexology works on rebalancing the nerves, calming the responses in the affected area, and with the endocrine balance, facilitates a change in the communication that is causing the discomfort. The inclusion of a personalised blend of oils applied to the body on a regular basis, is the natural energy medicine the body needs to change the source of the experience.

The symptoms experienced by those who have RSI are aching, pulsing pain, tingling and extremity weakness, with nerve compression and joint swelling, initially presenting with intermittent discomfort and then, with a higher degree of frequency. These symptoms can be alleviated with the use of Natural Health Therapy the combined treatment of multiple natural therapies. Experience freedom from pain.
