Calming and coping strategies

We all know how easy it is to become anxious, frustrated and stressed at work.  We sometimes feel out of our control, and however hard we try to do a good job we can find that people, processes and problems get right in our way.

Stress can be a big deal, and here at The Yorkshire Therapy Company we understand this all too well.  The company was developed as a result of Lauren pursuing her own strategies for coping with pressure and stress during her career in management, and many of our clients are looking for techniques and treatments to achieve a sense of calm, balance and wellbeing.

Is EFT for you?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a meridian therapy, originating from the most ancient practices of Japanese acupressure and Chinese acupuncture.   It is a system that is widely applicable in the treatment of phobias and psychological problems as well as providing pain relief, often in a short time period, by tapping on various acupressure points whilst concentrating or discussing the problem, pain or issue.

  A session of EFT allows the routine to be introduced to the client for their own use to complement the session and continue the healing and benefits of the treatment at home, or ‘in the moment’.   EFT works for people of all ages in a range of circumstances – from dealing with exam stress to managing a busy home or improving performance in business.  It has proven success on a wide range of areas, including:

· Managing pain · Defusing phobias · Controlling habits and addictions · Losing weight, or managing food cravings · Stopping smoking · Reducing stress and anxiety · Managing nerves and panic attacks · Improving self-confidence · Enabling change and adjustments in lifestyle · Reducing emotional pain and distress

Workplace on-site massage is becoming a popular benefit offered to staff in all kinds of organisations.  Whether it is as part of a staff well-being day, a weekly or monthly benefit or a one-off reward for excellent performance, massage is more than just a treat and doesn't just benefit the individual.
