Understanding the Importance of Relaxation for Your Health

Published on 4th December 2023

Relax Refresh RechargeRelaxation isn't just about taking a break - it's about triggering the Relaxation Response (RR) in your body, which has a positive impact on your overall health. Stress can lead to anxiety, increased blood pressure, and muscle tension – whereas the RR has the opposite effect and reduces anxiety, lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow, which provides more energy and nutrients to our organs. In particular, the digestive system benefits from relaxation, as it becomes more efficient in absorbing nutrients. This results in better health, stronger immunity, and increased ability to fight diseases and infections. Additionally, relaxation can reduce muscle tension and alleviate pain. By achieving a Relaxation Response regularly, we can maintain good health, stay calm, and effectively manage everyday stress.

Add a bodywork treatment like massage or reflexology into the mix and you are in health heaven!

Testimonials

"Had a remedial massage today off Bethan. The difference in me from how I was before I went today at 12.15 for an hours session is unbelievable. Would highly recommend. Thank you to Bethan. Very professional and made to feel very welcome and at ease. Next session in 2 weeks. She has given me exercises to do in the mean time."
