The Mayr programme that combats stress:

an end to overload and burnout

Today, we attribute many health complaints to stress: from persistent headaches to chronic itchiness and back pain – and even heart attacks and some forms of cancer. The relationship between body and psyche, their effect on each other, was established long ago, so we must take even early symptoms seriously and counteract the spiral of stress: with a Mayr De-Stress programme at Park Igls, for instance!

Physical signals work as an early warning system

You can do much to escape the spiral of stress, burnout and mental illness before pathological exhaustion sets in. Be discerning of your body: it will give you signs that you should heed as early warnings. Possible symptoms that indicate chronic stress include:
  • Migraines
  • Tension headaches
  • Sleep disorders
  • Palpitations
  • Heartburn
  • Gastric complaints
  • Increased perspiration
  • Anxiety
  • Depressive moods
  • Muscle tension
  • Energy blockages
  • Chronic pain

First-aid for stress

First, reduce the impact of sensory input on body and spirit: put your mobile phone away or switch it off, slow down, cancel appointments, become more mindful of your own needs – and book a Mayr De-Stress treatment programme at the Park Igls health retreat in Tyrol.

Relieve stress with Modern Mayr Medicine and prevent burnout

The founder of Mayr treatments, Dr Franz Xaver Mayr, recognised the intrinsic link between physical and psychological wellbeing and their effects on one another. The De-Stress module at our Modern Mayr Medicine resort in Tyrol tackles stress head-on with holistic therapies for body and mind.

A happy tummy for a happy you thanks to Modern Mayr therapies

A Mayr treatment programme is ideal for regenerating the body as a whole, relieving the digestive system, boosting the immune system, promoting general wellbeing and replenishing spent energy reserves. It also triggers a release of endorphins, dopamine and increased serotonin levels, all of which make us feel calmer and more relaxed. Furthermore, our delicious Modern Mayr cuisine in eight diet stages features carefully selected and prepared foods and herbs to give your gut a happy holiday.

Mind coaching sessions

Expose obstructive behaviour patterns, ‘energy thieves’ and personal risk factors by gently approaching difficult issues. Therapists and guests work together to develop effective plans for improving how you deal with situations and triggers. Essential steps include ‘decluttering’ your life and developing personal strategies for structuring the way you live – rather than having structures imposed on you from others.

Craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral therapy helps to release obstructions and restore mobility while at the same time supporting a general process of regeneration. The aim is to achieve – or regain – wellbeing, exploit your full potential, making it easier to be productive and ready to deal with whatever life throws at you.

Exercise and relaxation exercises

Muscle relaxation exercises, breathing techniques and autogenic training bring about greater ease and improved focus. These techniques and their positive impact on our internal processes help us overcome the underlying causes of unhealthy behaviours. The exercises actively support the breakdown of stress hormones and the release of happiness hormones.

De-stress at home

  • Digital detox. Less is more! Radically reduce your use of mobile phones, iPads and other devices, particularly in the evening – for the sake of your mind and a good night’s sleep.
  • Set your boundaries. Stand up for yourself – only you can take responsibility for yourself.
  • Take time for yourself. Your needs and passions are essential parts of your personal happiness, so make time for yourself and for all the wonderful things that make you happy.
  • Declutter your life. Listen to your body and detox your schedule: it may be time to cancel some of your appointments and personal commitments, and treat yourself to some well-deserved rest!
  • Multitasking won’t do the job. Try to focus on one task at a time – the next one won’t be far behind …

Tip:
Use the power of your breath to detox the mind

Suck in air as if through a straw until you feel it fill your lungs and abdomen. Then blow it out quickly and with force – as if you were trying to blow down a tree.
