Hola Peter 

This sentence isn't using a verb in its reflexive form - this is the verb hervir plus an indirect object pronoun (os). If you turn it round the structure is easier to see:

La sangre os hierve del estrés. -->

La sangre (subject) os hierve (verb agreeing with subject) del estrés. 

If you think of the structure that we use with doler, this is exactly the same:

Os duele la cabeza.

Your head hurts (you guys have a headache)

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

Inma
