WELL - NESS
You hear us using the word wellness a lot. It’s a very popular word in the health, beauty, and WELL-NESS industries. I recently read an article UCDAVIS Student Health and Counseling Services wrote about wellness and why it matters. I really couldn’t describe it any better.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality life. Wellness matters. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
There are eight dimensions of wellness: occupational, emotional, spiritual, environmental, financial, physical, social, and intellectual. Each dimension of wellness is interrelated with another. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health. One can reach an optimal level of wellness by understanding how to maintain and optimize each of the dimensions of wellness.
Bodyworks is here to help you achieve your optimal level of wellness. We have highly trained Licensed Massage Therapist that listen to you and your body. Our skilled Licensed Esthetician takes the time to help you achieve that glow in your skin. Our yoga teachers are here to guide you through a yoga practice for EveryBODY. When we feel good, we do good, and we want to help you be the best version of you possible.
Have you ever had a cupping massage?
This type of massage is performed with the use of glass or silicone cups that are used to gently lift the skin, muscle, and fascia into the cups by creating a vacuum. Our therapists may leave the cups stationary to allow blood to flow into the muscles and loosen them up. The cups are also actively used to gently massage and relieve tensions in the affected areas.
This technique is highly effective in loosening stiff, overworked muscles and can be beneficial in reducing scar tissue.
Will cupping leave marks?
In some cases there may be light reddening (bruising) of the skin associated with cupping. These spots typically do not last long, in some cases a few days, but can last up to a few weeks. Discoloration of the skin is normal, depending on the health of the skin, some people may have more bruising than others.
Bonjour from Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
Today is International Yoga Day. What exactly does that mean? Do you need to spend the entire day in down dog and and get your sun salutation on? Not exactly. Today us yogi's around the world celebrate the practice of yoga, meditation, and spreading awareness about yoga and how to add this wonderful practice to your lifestyle.
I want to talk a little about taking your yoga off your mat. When you leave your yoga practice do you take the compassion, kindness, and loving vibes with you when you leave the studio? Yoga doesn't give you any special powers or rights to not be a good human. Treat others as well as you treat yourself on your mat. In my own personal practice I often have to remind myself to slow down and it's funny how this follows me into my everyday living off my mat.
Today I took my yoga off the mat and slowed down. I had no plans but to ride my bike and take in the beauty of the trees, lavender fields, mountain air, and soaking up some sun at Lost Lake. This lead me to practice more gratitude and to think of the wonderful family and love I'm surrounded by.
Today I encourage you to take your yoga practice off the mat. Be kind to yourself, be kind to others, and flow through your day with the same grace you strive for on your yoga mat.
