Pampering & Relaxation
There is no doubt that being good to yourself has huge health benefits:
Taking time out from your busy schedule and allowing yourself to be top of the agenda in turn allows you to reflect on how you may need to do things differently to avoid some of the stress in the future.
One of the most obvious ways to pamper yourself is with a Swedish Massage. Gentle long strokes across tight muscles will help to unwind not just the physical manifestations of a busy or tight schedule.
The other kind of massage which is well known for being able to relax and soothe every part of you is Lymphatic Drainage Massage. Probably the gentlest type of massage there is, its main aim is to improve the circulation in the limbs and return any wayward swelling to the core, so it can be disposed of as effectively as possible.
Reflexology is a massage system with a basis in the energy channels in the body as described in the Chinese systems of diagnosis and treatment. Having your feet, hands or face stroked and massaged with the added benefit of possibly allowing many different organ systems to function better afterwards is true bliss after the compromised schedule and dietary choices we all make from time to time.
If you tend to hold your tension more in your head and mind rather than in your limbs and body, then consider Hypnotherapy as an ally in developing strategies for coping better and often avoiding getting in such a pinch again. It is important to understand that hypnotherapy only works to make you see clearer and realise easier the things you would and could do yourself.
When you realise that a regular time where you indulge yourself is not only allowed but essential you may also consider any of the classes in our timetable, which has this as their main theme.
