Are you SAD? (Stressed, Anxious, Depressed)?

You are in good company if you are, as these are very common problems. Research shows that prescribed drugs are of little benefit in treating these problems in most people (1, 3), but there is plenty of useful help and symptom relief that you can get from certain gentle and natural treatments (4), and herbal medicine has been demonstrated to be at least as effective as drugs, but without side effects (2). Anxiety and depression are also more common in people with syndromes such as Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue, Pelvic Pain or Central Sensitisation (5).

 

most modern drugs prescribed for depression generally don’t work”

Testimonials

Pam Hardyment, London

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

Vena Ramphal, London

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
