The Importance of Relaxation
We all want to be happy and relaxation is a key to happiness. We have our careers, homes, relationships and interactions with the world around us. We want to find a way to do everything we want for ourselves and have time and energy for others. During our busy days, it can be challenging to remember to take a moment to stop and pause between our daily activities and relax.
We love to have fun in life, but sometimes juggling too many tasks and responsibilities without a break can put unnecessary pressure on us, leading to stress. When we don't take the necessary time for rest and relaxation, our body and emotions give us a variety of signals letting us know it is time to rest.
Unfortunately in modern society, we often do not listen to our bodies until some kind of a physical issue develops or we have an explosive interaction with another person. At that point we are more or less forced to take a look into what's going on with ourselves.
Why Relaxation is Important for us to Stay Healthy and Happy
Relaxation is a process that decreases the effects of stress in the mind and body. It is a state of rest, enjoyment and physical renewal.
Relaxation can protect the heart, improve the immune system, boosts memory and has many other important health benefits.
We believe in living a healthy and happy life and we encourage others to do the same. We offer classes, workshops, products as well as essential oil therapy and bodywork toward this goal.
Receiving massage, bodywork and essential oil therapy are wonderful ways to relax your body and mind so the body's inner self healing mechanisms may be activated. The sessions help reduce stress hormones and the body feel great. Not only do stress reducing sessions feel good, but they are a great way to apply preventative therapy so to speak, so you can enjoy the long-term health benefits that being truly relaxed has to offer.
Several medical studies have shown that massage and bodywork are effective remedies for stress related conditions, such as depression, pain and muscle tension. According to the RN Journal "Massage can be used as an alternative to narcotics, steroid injections and surgery but, it also can be used as a complement to allopathic medicine to speed healing and reduce pain should surgery be necessary. For those who are actively under a physicians care, massage helps minimize complications and helps provide the best possible outcome."
