A spotlight on stress


Ready to thrive with practical solutions? 

A word we’re increasingly hearing? Stress – across all areas of one’s life. From juggling work and family demands to navigating a world emerging from the pandemic, stress is unfortunately here to stay.

But the good news? With a suite of tailored tools, you can equip yourself with a robust plan to prevent, manage or resolve stress when it presents itself. To make your life as stress free as possible, we’ve put together five fundamentals to keep top of mind:

#1 Fighting fit with Physiotherapy  

Get the most out of life with a tailored treatment plan         

On-going pain issues or injuries can make your stress levels soar. That’s where physiotherapy – a tried and tested approach to injury management – can help. At Excel, we love working with all our clients to create a treatment plan that matches their specific needs and goals. It’s a focus on assessing, diagnosing and treating your ability to move and function.

Across the sporting field, gym, home, place of work and more – we work with a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions and disorders. It’s about empowering you to be actively involved in your long-term wellbeing and focusing on the best way to reduce your stress and pain. Connect with us today to book a physiotherapy session.

#2 Remedial massage therapy
Unlock the power of muscle and soft tissue manipulation

When did you last treat yourself to a massage? It’s the perfect way to unwind, relax and reduce overall stress in your life. From working at home (without the best desk set-up?) to over-training at the gym, we see regular cases where muscle strain and tension can build up quickly.

It’s time to experience a diversity of incredible benefits from remedial massage therapy – irrespective of whether the massage is focused on relaxation or rehabilitation. From pain relief to lowering blood pressure, improvement in your quality of sleep to enhancing recovery from exercise – put massages high on your agenda to build a stress free life.

#3 Yoga and Pilates

Turn stress into serenity – one class at a time 

Another sensational stress-buster? Say hello to the wonderful benefits of Yoga and Pilates – a dynamic duo in helping to transform one’s life and reduce stress with each and every movement.

Yoga is the perfect way to nurture and nourish your body in order to bring a sense of calm and balance to our hectic schedule and daily challenges. Pilates is a practical and highly beneficial way to increase your core stability, improve your posture/strength/co-ordination, and drive your flexibility.

All of these outcomes and benefits help reduce stress in your life or provide the framework to manage it better. At Excel, we’re proud to offer a range of regular classes to suit your needs.

#4 Gym, sport and outdoor activities
Accelerate a stress-free life through exercise       

At Excel, we’ve seen an uptick in how activities in the gym, through sport or outdoors are helping people manage and work through their stress symptoms. Exercise has many benefits – both from a fitness, wellness and health perspective, as well as the ability to tackle intermittent or on-going stress.

As the weather gets warmer, it’s a great time to incorporate different forms of exercise into your routine – with a diversity of benefits for your mental health, body and soul. Exercise can help take one’s mind off stress and it encourages the act of stepping away from the constant sea of emails, demands or tasks.

The key point to keep front and centre is that it’s important to warm up properly, adopt the right technique and exercise safely – in order to not add stress to your life with injuries. This brings us to point #4…

#5 Wellness products  
Support your stress reduction with a look at different options          Tea, vitamins, and tailored treats? At Excel, we know that a holistic approach to managing stress can get the best outcome. In our ever-changing dynamic foyer, we display a diversity of wellness products to consider.

From driving relaxation (through candles, essential oils and fragrances) to promoting digestive health and wellbeing (via Peppermint tea, Ginger tea and more) – there are many options to help navigate and reduce stress throughout your day.
