Relaxation therapy

​Relaxation therapy is the act of using relaxation therapeutically. Relaxation helps relieve stress, control anxiety symptoms, improve sleep, and provide you with a better quality of life in general. 
The aim of relaxation therapy is to quieten the mind, to allow thoughts to flow in a smooth, level rhythm, and induce the relaxation response. This mental quiet allows for rest and rejuvenation that does not always occur, even during sleep. 

Relaxation really can have a positive effect on stress by: 
  • Slowing your heart rate
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Slowing your breathing rate
  • Reducing activity of stress hormones
  • Increasing blood flow to major muscles
  • Reducing muscle tension and chronic pain
  • Improving concentration and mood
  • Lowering fatigue
  • Reducing anger and frustration
  • Boosting confidence to handle problems

Relaxation sessions can be just what you need to help you get through your day. Switch off from the stress, halt the hassle and let me help you unwind. If you have a busy day shopping, working, exercising or just generally running around after everyone else, take some time out for yourself.
