Shiatsu in case of burn-out

Training Course: Shiatsu & Burn-Out

The new trap of industrialized civilization.

A real epidemic due to changes in the nature of work and lifestyles. Daily demands exhaust individuals : emotionally, physically and spiritually.

The result of an imbalance between, on one hand work overload, stress which becomes chronic, a lack of recognition, various pressures; and on the other hand the lack of resources to refocus, de-stress and recharge our batteries .

Physically and psychologically, this results in an imbalance between the overactive orthosympathetic and the slowed down parasympathetic nervous system.

Burn out, when the mind takes control but the body knows that it is too far from what is right, and one is in disconnection.

From 1969 the term “burn-out” appeared. The psychologist Herbert Freudenberger described burnout in 1974 as a state of exhaustion in which the nursing staff of Free Clinics found themselves, very invested professionally and emotionally with drug addict patients. The Japanese term “karoshi” appears and designates sudden death from nervous exhaustion at work, caused by a heart attack, an event which takes place since the end of the 1960s.
