Meditation is the art of relaxation. It has less to do with attentiveness and more to do with simply being ... not thinking, not concentrating, just being in the moment.
What is Meditation Therapy?
Meditation Therapy is a form of alternative medicine, in which the mind is used in an attempt to help with a variety of problems, such as breaking bad habits, overcoming fears and phobia, and clearing emotional trauma.
How does Meditation Therapy work?
Meditation Therapy, similar to hypnosis, uses verbal repetition and mental imagery to induce a “trance-like state” for the purpose of increased focus. It’s typically described as a calm and relaxed feeling, and usually opens people up to the power of suggestion, according to the Mayo Clinic. It will help you gain control over anxiety, pain and undesired behaviors. But, it’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during meditation, you don’t necessarily lose your sense of control, in fact you remain in control the entire time.
It is also effective in helping control pain and breaking bad habits such as smoking or overeating.
Life is stressful, and stress creates a busy mind. The pressure and constant demands of life overwhelm us, and in order to distract ourselves from the constant bombardment of life, we busy ourselves with anything and everything. Trouble is, that leads to us being under productive, which in itself creates stress.
When the body is under stress, it releases a hormone called Cortisol. In small doses this hormone is very beneficial to the body. But in larger, constant amounts, this hormone creates havoc. Cortisol triggers our nervous system to be in a state of 'fight or flight', either preparing to run away from a situation, or to turn and fight it. So, as the body physically prepares for a quick get away or a knock out match, the mind is continuously generating scenarios, blocking our ability to regain focus.
Most people think they don't have the time to meditate, or they've tried it and were too distracted to find any benefit. At Ki Health and Wellness our one hour guided meditations are designed to make it easy for you to relax, rest, and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
