Mindful Stress Recovery Programe

Whether you are wanting to relieve work related stress, or prevent it, or prolonged overwelming stress response symptoms, we believe that to truly assist you in alleviating negative symptoms, it requires an integrative approach … of peeling away the layers to access the core issues. We commence our Programe by completing a thorough assessment. Firstly identifying the appropriate interventions required, then developing a plan that suits your unique situation.

According to Mehta… ”the best way to treat stress over the long term is to identify the root causes of it, and see if your lifestyle can be changed to reduce it, …you cannot biopsy stress…stress exists in the realm of the mind, therefore the tools that we must use in order to confront excessive stress need to also be mindfulness-based modalities”

Mindfulness

For the last decade numerous studies have shown that mindfulness training can improve a variety of mental and physical health problems.

Studies have suggested that mindfulness reverses these patterns during stress; it increases prefrontal activity, which can regulate and turn down the biological stress response.

Excessive activation of the biological stress response increases the risk of diseases impacted by stress. By reducing individuals’ experiences of stress, mindfulness may help regulate the physical stress response and ultimately reduce the risk and severity of stress-related diseases.

Our programmes provide both a therapeutic and coaching approach to health and wellbeing. They are both enabling and empowering.  They equip YOU with tools and strategies to enhance your resiliance and regain control and balance in your life moving forward.

How Stress Causes Disease

The classic definition of stress is “any real or imagined threat, and your body’s response to it.”

Interventions

Using techniques like energy psychology, you can correct the emotional short circuiting that contributes to your chronic stress. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is the largest and most popular version of energy psychology.

EFT stimulates different energy meridian points in your body by tapping them with your fingertips, while simultaneously using verbal affirmations. This can be done alone or under the supervision of a qualified therapist. By doing so, you help your body eliminate emotional “scarring” and reprogram the way your body responds to emotional stressors.

Our Hawaiian and Mauri Ora Signature Massage, Breath and Energy work is deeply relaxing, restoring balance and Harmony in mind, body, spirit. Medical research has proven that massage decreases stress hormones, increases white blood cell (helping immunity) and releases feel-good hormones like oxytocin and serotonin.

Taking it one step further….

Aromatherapy used in any of its forms can help to relieve stress. Since aromatherapy employs the use of scent to affect how people feel, it is important to understand how this works on the body.

When we inhale air, particularly air that is infused with essential oils, it goes to the roof of our nose. Olfactory receptors in the nose then transport the information to the limbic system. The limbic system is where our emotions are processed. One reason it is believed that aromatherapy can be helpful, especially when treating stress, is that it stimulates the release of certain chemicals in the brain that can help people relax. This is why aromatherapy can help to relieve stress.

When you combine these benefits of massage with aromatherapy massage oil, the health benefits of physical touch are boosted by these oils. As the therapist works on massaging your muscles and releasing your tension, you’ll become aware.

Infertility can affect every area of life, impacting not only a couple’s health and relationship, the persistent inability to conceive can also eat away at their self-esteem.  The road to pregnancy can be a stressful one. For more info, please click here.

An Infrared sauna session provides stress relief in a number of ways. It’s a warm, quiet space without any distractions coming from the outside. As we like to say, “Step into a sauna, and close the door on the rest of the world.” The heat from the sauna relaxes the body’s muscles, improves circulation and stimulates the release of endorphin’s. It helps to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. Endorphin’s are the body’s all-natural “feel good” chemical, and their release provides a truly wonderful “after sauna glow.”

Supplements and Herbs

Key nutrients are depleted in times of stress. They are one f the important components of managing stress. A supplement plan can be developed with our consulting Health Professional.

Foods can help tame stress in several ways. Proper diet can counterbalance the impact of stress by strengthening the immune system, stabilising moods, and reducing blood pressure.

Stress can cause a deficiency in many of the vitamins, minerals and essential compounds that our bodies need to function efficiently, especially in cases where the has been prolonged stress over many years. Your blood tests might show that you are within range for many of these nutrients, but fatigue, physical symptoms and low energy levels often suggest otherwise.

Additionally, there are a number of herbs, probiotics,  supplements, Therapeutic Essential Oils, NZ First Light Plant tinctures and infused oils,  can all play a valuable role in the treatment of stress. Using the right combination of these, together with the appropriate adjustments in your diet and lifestyle, will go a long way towards reversing your condition.

Nourishment is Key to your recovery and preventative measures

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. By being fully present in this way – not forcing things or hiding from them, but actually being with them, we create space to respond in new ways to situations and make wise choices. We may not always have full control over our lives, but with mindfulness we can work with our minds and bodies, learning how to live with more appreciation and less anxiety.
