At Barefoot Medicine in addition to treatments we also offer Mindfulness and this includes helping our patients with Relaxation;
What is Relaxation?
Relaxation in psychology, is the emotional state of a living being, of low tension, in which there is an absence of arousal that could come from sources such as anger, anxiety, or fear. According to the dictionary relaxation is when the body and mind is free from tension and anxiety.
Relaxation is a form of mild ecstasy coming from the frontal lobe of the brain in which the backward cortex sends signals to the frontal cortex via a mild sedative. Relaxation can be achieved through meditation, autogenics, and progressive muscle relaxation.
Relaxation helps improve coping with stress. Stress is the leading cause of mental problems and physical problems, therefore feeling relaxed is beneficial for a person’s health. When we are stressed, the sympathetic nervous system is activated because we are in a fight-or-flight response mode; over time, this could have negative effects on a human body.
We have a number of relaxation methods and technique that we can tech you to help you with relieving stress and improving your health & well-being.
