Psychosomatics – How Stress Affects the Body

What is psychosomatics? Psyche is the mind and Soma means the body. Simply put it is how the mind affects the body.

They are intricately interconnected;  what goes on in our minds manifests in our bodies causing physical symptoms which alert you to mental distress.


You may think that illness is to blame, but stress may well be the culprit behind all your  ailments!


So, you may ask … what should I be looking out for?

What are some of the effects of stress on the body?



·       Extreme fatigue

·       Headaches

·       Muscle tension – especially in the neck, shoulders and back

·       Unexplained aches and pains

·       Gastrointestinal (gut / digestion) Issues

·       Itchy skin

·       Changes in sex drive

·       Weight loss or gain


If left unchecked, stress in the body can contribute to the development of heart disease, premature ageing, Alzheimers, dementia and diabetes!


The techniques used in NLP life coaching  assist you in processing  mental stress which in turn relieves, dissipates and clears the physical symptoms of stress in the body.  All of this is possible because of the body-mind connection.
