MINDFULNESS

Mind and Body

“Give us your Body for a week, and we’ll give you back your mind.” That has been our tagline and our mantra since 1989.  Although it is easy to think of wellness in terms of the body, it’s evident that a holistic approach to wellness can only be when both mind and body are healthy and in harmony.

In today’s media, there is a sudden focus and noise about “mental health.” But many of us have been on the case for years. It isn’t a new phenomenon either. Many people, both soldiers and civilians, suffered from mental health issues after the second world war. But it seems that only now is there a general acceptance of mental health problems.

Employing a mixture of ancient Eastern practices and Western science allows us to help our guests achieve a better life plan.

MINDFULNESS

Tai Chi

Stroll through a Chinese city early in the morning, and you’re likely to see groups of people exercising in the park. You’ll see them moving through a series of slow, graceful movements. As their bodies flow from one exercise to the next, their minds are focused only on their deep, relaxed breathing.

Tai chi is called a mind-body type of exercise because it combines meditation, focused breathing, and physical movement. Because it’s also a low-impact exercise, it may be particularly well suited for older adults, but it’s a beneficial exercise for people of all ages.Tai chi developed in China as a type of martial art. No one is exactly sure of its origin, but legend has it that it was started by a Taoist monk named Chang San-Feng, who developed 13 exercises based on the movements of animals. Today tai chi is used to promote fitness, meditation, balance, breathing, and well-being.
