Being healthy is not linear

We have our good days, and our bad days. We have our good choices and our not so good choices. We have esposides of resilent wellness and experience periods of illness. It’s not a perfect path… but that is part of what strengthens us in mind, body, spirit and soul.

How Meditation, Massage and Yoga Can Change Your Body

How Massage, Meditation and Yoga can Change Your Body… 

  • Your brain releases happy chemicals -you get a boost of serotonin, dopamine and endorphins, all are linked to a good mood. 

  • Pain diminishes -it appears to change the activity in key pain processing regions of the brain in one study participants experienced a 40% reduction in pain intensity. 

  • Blood pressure drops -the effect is and not just temporary.  Studies show that regular sessions of daily meditation and monthly massage can play a major role in stabilizing.

  • Digestion runs more smoothly -stress triggers the stomach churning “fight or flight” instinct by shutting down digestion.  When relaxed, the body re-boots the parasympathetic nervous system which stimulates digestion. 

  • Swelling subsides -it can reduce stress induced inflammation from several inflammatory conditions including arthritis and asthma.
