Reduce Stress & Experience Deep Relaxation

Our bodies are built to manage short-term stress, but when that stress becomes long-term or

chronic, it can severely affect the body,  mind, energy, and creativity.

If your body experiences chronic stress that is physical, emotional, or spiritual

you may begin to feel unhealthy effects, like fatigue, irritability,

intestinal problems, anxiety or depression, low libido, poor sleep,

and weight gain.

Stress reduction exercises such as meditation, Qigong, somatic movement, and vagal toning shift your body from "fight or flight" (sympathetic) response to "rest and digest" (parasympathetic) response which helps balance hormones' immune response and activate the body's natural healing powers. 

 

Learning simple practices to help you shift into deep relaxation helps reset your nervous system and build resiliency. Building this resiliency is one way to build the "energy cushion" necessary for optimal health. 

Health coaching can help you realize:

  • your sources of stress

  • the effects of stress on your mind, body, and spirit

  • how overall lifestyle health impacts stress and vice-versa

  • lifestyle choices to reduce chronic stress & Increase well-being

Stress reduction exercises can help you:

  • reduce chronic stress

  • build resiliency in your system.

  • increase energy and vitality

  • unblock tension and increase creativity

*It is essential to visit your doctor when stress becomes overwhelming so that you can assess your situation and choose a management plan. Solutions can include cognitive therapy, medications, and complementary solutions.

Moving Meditation for Stress
Reduction

The movements, breathing, sound healing, focus, and visualizations associated with Qigong and other moving meditation practices help tone the vagus nerve. Because this nerve is part of the autonomic nervous system, it contributes to parasympathetic response or "rest and digest" mode. A well-toned vagus nerve helps prevent inflammation and reduces levels of stress.
