Sustainable stress reduction thanks to light therapy
Stress is an almost daily companion in our everyday lives. Whether professional or private – workload increases and stress grows with it. And while positive stress can certainly motivate us and spur us on to peak performance, negative stress puts a strain on us and leads to anger and fear, a feeling of helplessness and even the unmistakable clinical picture.
However, the beneficial effects of light therapy can sustainably reduce body stress and thus make a significant contribution to daily health care. The grounding and the energy recovery system cause an immediate improvement in the cortisol profile and more balance in the autonomic nervous system.
But what do you mean by stress? How do the body and mind react to such stress and how can stress be counteracted effectively? We have all the answers at a glance...
What is stress?
When external stimuli (stressors) cause physical or psychological tension, it is called stress. This can be perceived as either motivating or stressful - depending on how long it lasts and how strong the resulting pressure is.
How does the body react to stress?
When stressed, the organism reacts to a potential threat. This activates the so-called sympathetic nervous system, a part of the nervous system that cannot be controlled consciously and which prepares the body to deal with the situation.
In addition, the hormones adrenaline and norepinephrine are produced in stressful situations. These chemical messengers are responsible for the bronchial tubes dilating and blood pressure and blood sugar levels rising. The release of cortisol also ensures that the body is put on alert.
This means he is well prepared to face the cause of stress. But our body's reaction is designed so that the energy boost only has to be used for a short time, as relaxation immediately occurs again. However, this is exactly what does not happen when stress is persistent - with far-reaching consequences for health and well-being...

The human organism's stress response is sufficiently efficient to cope with acute dangers and short-term challenges. However, long-term stress quickly leads to physical and psychological stress; we feel exhausted and tense. This makes it increasingly difficult to respond meaningfully to stress triggers, while the risk of burnout, depression and cardiovascular disease increases noticeably.
Long-term stress is therefore a significant risk factor for various illnesses. It is therefore important to know the possible causes so that we can counteract them in good time.
Possible causes of stress
Stress is perceived very differently by each individual. Which aspects are specifically responsible for the inner tension depends on personal factors: both physical components as well as genetic conditions, the social environment and biography can influence the perception of stress.
The TERRA Medico regeneration system
Stress reactions can be triggered by:
- everyday stress (pressure or bullying at work or at school, financial difficulties, arguments in a relationship or within the family, loneliness)
- physical or psychological suffering (injury, illness, pain)
- drastic life events (death, separation, job loss, natural disasters)
- unmet physical needs (thirst, hunger, sleep)
- Environmental influences (heat, cold, noise)
Reduce stress through light therapy
Regardless of the cause, stressful situations often result in an unpleasant feeling of loss of control, helplessness and fear. The inner balance begins to falter and with it the physical and emotional well-being.
However, TERRA Medico's health products counteract this efficiently and sustainably. Through the targeted application of biophysical principles, they support the reduction of body stress and ensure the necessary recovery of the entire organism.
The TERRA Medico therapy pad
The integrated grounding of the TERRA Medico therapy pad neutralizes free radicals and thus immediately reduces body tension and stress levels. The so-called energy recovery is also activated using certified Celliant® fleece: The lost energy is returned to the body, regeneration is promoted and the energy balance is supported. The therapy pad thus helps to reduce stress as well as prevent stress-related burnout, depression and cardiovascular diseases.
