WHAT ARE THE STRESS RELIEVING AND HEALING BENEFITS OF A GONG BATH?

1) REJUVENATES THE BODY AND MIND

Gong Baths are highly rejuvenating for the body, inducing a deep feeling of relaxation. When we are relaxed and the chatter in our minds has been silenced, it enables us to enjoy undisturbed, good quality sleep.

 

2) BRINGS DOWN STRESS LEVELS

Stress is not good for us, it’s as simple as that. Whilst it’s unrealistic to try and eliminate stress altogether, we can take steps to reduce it. The deep feeling of relaxation a Gong Bath can induce, means our bodies and minds will feel less stressed. Stress has been linked to many illnesses such as high blood pressure, dementia, headaches and heart disease. The more we can do to reduce stress in our lives, the healthier we will be.

 

3) TACKLES OBESITY

Stress causes higher levels of the hormone cortisol to be released into our bodies. This particular hormone increases the amount of fat stored in the abdomen. Excess fat in the belly appears to pose a greater risk to our health than fat stored in the thighs and legs. Hence stress can be linked to obesity, a condition that places a huge amount of adverse pressure on our bodies. Obesity can also lead to life threatening illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease.

 

4) REDUCES ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION

Gong Baths are able to reduce stress and tension and in turn increase blood circulation. This helps bring down our blood pressure and improve our overall mood. When we feel calmer and happier, our mood improves, stress levels lower and we can also sleep better. Poor sleep is a key contributor to feelings of anxiety and depression.
