Weekly Relaxation Sessions

Did you know that the Relaxation Response is recognized as being the opposite of the physiological stress response? When practiced on a regular daily basis relaxation can promote the following benefits:

  • Release physical tension
  • Manage emotions
  • Improve both the quality and quantity of sleep
  • Improve concentration, focus, work productivity and feeling of self-accomplishment
  • Improve communication and interpersonal relationships with family, friends and colleagues
  • Connect with one’s true self to find calm and inner peace
  • Make better choices and regain a sense of control over one’s life

Relaxation is an easy tool, doesn’t cost anything and it works!
