HEALING POWER OF TOUCH
It's very common these days to live most of our lives in our heads, if you are experiencing the constant chatter of to-do lists, errands, worries, decisions and criticisms, you are not alone.
This mental chatter disconnects you from your body and depletes your energy. In fact, it is just another form of stress that over time pulls the energy from your body and keeps it stuck in your head.
When the time comes for rest and relaxation, you may find that your mind cannot stop. Even sleep can become more difficult, further depleting your energy.
Regular touch establishes your Mind-Body connection and has been proven to decrease anxiety, boost your immune system, lower blood pressure and increase endorphin levels (your feel good hormones).
TIPS FOR A BETTER LIFE..!
- Borrow a custom from Europe and kiss friends and family Hello (if that’s too intimate, give them a hug instead)
- Pat people on the back or arm as a form of gentle reassurance
- Schedule regular therapeutic massage treatments (even a 30 min session can make all the difference)
- Get a foot massage or foot reflexology (Thai foot massage is one of the best forms of this as it incorporates Acupressure, Reflexology and Massage)
- Don't be afraid to ask for a hug (both your body and mind need it!)
These forms of healing touch allow your energy to move from your head into your abdomen, which is your "energy powerhouse"
