Get some oomph, this winter!
Have you run out of energy? Now is the perfect time to revitalise with these body-boosting therapies as the days become shorter.
It makes sense that some of us would experience a decline in energy as winter approaches and the evenings become longer. Fortunately, there are many ways to recharge our internal batteries without using caffeine or sugar, which will make it easier for us to handle the demands and strains of modern life on a regular basis.
Here are a few of the most frequently go to treatments, to give us an extra boost!
Massage with acupressure - Acupressure, often known as "acupuncture without the needles," uses the fingers, thumbs, elbows, and other parts of the hands and arms to apply pressure to various acupoints in order to restore the balance of qi in the body. For people who need a quick energy boost, seated acupressure massage is very beneficial. Treatment lasts 10 to 15 minutes and is done while you are still wearing your clothes. It's a very energising therapy and excellent for releasing muscular tension because the therapist will often concentrate on manipulating acupoints on the back, neck, shoulders, and arms.
Essential Oils - Nothing can arouse the senses like a pleasant perfume. Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant essential oils that are inhaled or used topically as part of a massage oil or other product. These oils enter the body through the lungs. The inhaled oils not only travel through the circulatory system but also make it to the limbic system of the brain, where they have an effect on our mood. A few drops of your favourite essential oil can be added to a burner or diffuser with most confidence.
Acupuncture - To promote the passage of qi (vital energy) throughout the body and maintain our health, acupuncture is a kind of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that involves inserting small needles into acupoints on the skin. A number of acupoints can be especially used to increase our general vitality and wellbeing. These points are tailored to your specific needs will be used during therapy to assist improve your energy levels, relieve stress, and reduce exhaustion by qi-stimulating the body.
Bodywork! A deep abdominal massage called amno-fu is intended to stimulate the reproductive system, liver, spleen, and digestive functions. Many of the body's regular functions are compromised when it is tired. A vicious cycle starts if our digestive systems are slow because the food we eat isn't properly transformed into energy, making us feel more lethargic and moving less. Amno-fu massage will draw more blood and fluid to the area, literally 'getting things moving again' and 'stimulating digestive activity,' aiding the body in more effectively eliminating waste and toxins. This is a very specialised therapy and not that readily available when seeking.
