The word yoga means “union” in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where yoga originated. We can think of the union occurring between the mind, body and spirit. Yoga helps you to relax and overcome stress. Physically, yoga creates a toned, flexible, and strong body. In addition, yoga builds awareness of your body, your feelings, the world around you, the needs of others.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.
The term “massage therapy” encompasses many forms of healing, including some of those mentioned above. Cabot Shores is pleased to offer many types of hands-on services on-site. There’s no better way to sink into your time here and ease your tired body than to begin with a relaxing massage.
