100 Ways To Relax (Brought to you by our patients!)

We talk a lot about relaxation and the importance of it in the studio. The conversation is on repeat with each of our patients and for good reason! Lowered stress levels have been shown to reduce bloating, PMS, insomnia, skin complaints, increase fertility and energy levels by allowing our Hypothalamic -Pituitary - Adrenal (HPA) Axis to function optimally.

We all know stress is bad and not being stressed is good but at times we struggle with how to get into a state of relaxation when everything around us seems so crazy! So we came up with a list of 100 ways to relax based on our patients responses over the years and want to share it with you.

We suggest picking your top 10 and carving out 30-60 minutes each day to enjoy one of them.
