Working with Chronic Depletion
to Build Resilience


When we are resilient, we are able to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad has happened.

But when our systems are subject to long-term or multiple stressors – be they physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, social or even lifestyle – we become depleted as the strain becomes greater than our capacity for compensation.  If we are depleted long enough, chronic depletion results.

I have studied how to work with clients with chronic depletion using manual therapy at the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.

The circumstances of chronic depletion resemble this:

  • The nervous system is over-stimulated, often stuck in the fight-or-flight mode.
  • The body is not relaxed. Muscles are tight.
  • Multiple health conditions are present and there is no clear cause for them.
  • Energy for self-regulation, the capacity to overcome existing and new stress, is low and has to be built up.
This is becoming more and more common.  Why?

In the introduction to “CranioSacral Therapy and Working With Chronic Depletion”, course instructor Eric Moya, CST-D, MS/MFCT talks about how humans are going through an evolutionary process right now to adapt to a new world.
 
“In the recent past of even 100 years ago, people may not have traveled or been exposed to ideas, peoples, connections outside of their immediate social community,” he writes. “By any measure the world is becoming more complex: socially, economically, politically, physically, ecologically, biologically…In short, we have to evolve.”
 
As a manual therapist, I can help you relax, ease the nervous system, and release tissue restrictions that require the body to compensate, thereby lessening some of the load.  (Our clients also receive a BEMER application that increases energy if they choose, as part of our bodywork appointments.)
