Posture and soul

Many psychosomatic diseases, stress and other mental problems are reflected in our somatic functions.


Stress, environmental burdens – impacts on our posture?

We cannot always avoid stress in everyday life. Nor do we always succeed in getting through life with an optimistic and hopeful posture. Worries at work, conflicts in our relationship, environmental burdens, the fast pace of the time, pressure, anxieties and depressions, fret, suppressed emotions such as anger, for example, may lead to painful muscle tensions and leave their marks if they last for too long. Often there are psychic sources of backaches, neck pains, pains in your shoulders and headaches; then the back becomes the "mirror of the soul".

The sources of pains differ individually. For this reason, the person affected should always try to locate the psychic source of his or her disease as well.


Relaxation techniques such as autogenic training, yoga, meditation or progressive muscle relaxation according to Jacobsen, a purposeful muscle hypertrophy in a health club, swimming or jogging can already be of great relief. Tensions can be relieved better, the muscles unstiffen and thus the pain also dissipates.
