We believe that, wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
Therapeutic Massage is an important tool that we use. It is being offered for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, muscle tension, anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia related to stress, myofascial pain syndrome, soft tissue strains, sports injuries, joint pain and many other conditions. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
Our trained and certified therapists will thoroughly evaluate you and tailor therapeutic massage therapies, exercise and diet plans to help you meet your wellness goals.
We have all driven our cars to work only to realize that we remember nothing about our journey! How did I get here? This is called mindlessness. It is a state in which our attention is absorbed in our wandering minds and we are not really ‘present’ in our own lives. It seems as if we are on autopilot.
The average person will slip into mindlessness 47% of the time. This is nearly half of our waking hours sent in a daze, missing the world around us. Mindlessness is like being a dreamlike state, our minds are not fully there in that moment. In this busy, frenzied, over connected world we live in, it becomes easy to lose ourselves for much of our day. We become disconnected from those around us, we fail to notice the beauty of life and fail to hear what our bodies are telling us. We become stuck in our mechanical programmed way of living and thinking. We find ourselves constantly struggling to accomplish every day tasks instead of really living. We become susceptible to anxiety, stress, and depression.
Mindfulness is the opposite of mindlessness.
It means shutting off the autopilot and taking control
of our attention and the surrounding environment again.
We exercise mindfulness when we maintain a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings and sensations. Simply stated mindfulness is paying attention on purpose. Mindfulness also involves being non-judgmental. We pay attention to our thoughts and feelings with the attitude of an impartial witness, without believing them or taking them personally.
