The need to address health and wellbeing is refreshingly, becoming a higher priority amongst many industries, and is making its way up the bill of government policies and social media.
More and more FMCG multinationals are on the band wagon to encourage people to look after their health by keeping fit. The Apple watch and Virgin’s new partnership with Virgin active health clubs, are just two examples of leading brand names paving the way for Holistic health and lifestyles.
Holistic health is threefold, a healthy mind, a healthy body and a healthy soul. Each is interlinked with the other. If one is out of balance or under pressure the other is impacted.
When back pain, digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety, general stress and tension in muscles occur, they are all signs that one of these core elements is not working to its full capacity and has become comprised.
Emotional and mental stress can be felt when people find themselves facing traumatic circumstances, or are under constant time or mental pressure. This stress can become internalised and present itself as on-going minor illness and fatigue.
When the body becomes weak and emotional and mental stress continues, the immune system is working over time and can become depleted to a point at which a person starts to suffer from exhaustion.
Exhaustion can then lead to depression and the viscous cycle can continue and lead to long term diseases.
But all is not lost! When you notice those annoying ailments don’t disappear, and that you are constantly catching up with yourself, this is a clear the sign to seek help.
Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Swedish Massage are treatments that focus on bringing the body and mind into balance.
Professional massage to nerve endings and reflex points stimulate the nervous system to engage the bodys own healing process.
This method of treatment not only invokes deep relaxation, which in itself provides a person with the time and space to let go of mental and physical stress, it improves circulation, promotes the release of toxins and increases oxygen which culminates in a new found state of homoeostatis.
Holistic treatments address the person as a whole, aiming to reach a sense of balance. Having these treatments in the work place where 90% of the time is spent at a desk or in a confined office space, brings the benefit of giving staff and employees a natural boost.
It provides a focus on their wellbeing, helping them to feel valued which increases productivity and an incentive to deliver a continuous level of output.
