Where Stress Gets Stuck in the Body—And How to Release It

In a new video collaboration, Lauren Roxburgh, structural integration and alignment specialist—and our resident fascia and pelvic floor authority—teams up with a medium, meditation leader, and author of Intuitive Being, Jill Willard to help us manage stress depending on how we react to it in the body. In her ongoing body work with clients, Roxburgh says she can actually see and feel stress stuck in the body—and that it tends to build up in five areas, depending on how each individual responds to stress (i.e. are you a jaw clencher or do you hunch your shoulders?); Roxburgh calls these five areas the stress containers. Together with Willard, who brings her deep knowledge of the mind/body/spirit intersection and the nature of energy movement within the body (as in chi), Roxburgh explains how stress gets stuck in the body, what it does once stuck there, and how to treat each of the five areas it gets stuck in.
