Mind Spa Therapy Eases Mental Aches

MANILA, Philippines - Year 2014 is still a big question mark for most of us. We don’t know what lies ahead. But we all want a stress-free mind to help us face all the challenges that will come our way.

One of the ways we can do that is through mind spa therapy. If hair spa and body spa relax our crowning glory and our physique, respectively, mind spa therapy eases our mental aches and pains.

It clears us of worry and anxiety, and rids our mind of cobwebs that cloud our thinking. How does it work?

First, the process: You lie down on a padded table. The therapist lightly runs his hands on your body, searching for imbalances in the body. 

He applies a very light touch (the weight of a one-peso coin) and gentle movement on key areas of the body (e.g. the head, face, chest, abdomen, spine, arms, and legs) to release tension and stress.

There are no pills, no external devices that invade the body. Instead, the mind lets the body heal itself naturally. 

The mind matters: The author, Dr. Randy Dellosa,
applies mind spa therapy on a patient.

The one-hour session is relaxing and many people quickly doze off. Subconscious images, memories, and emotions trapped in the body are released and restfulness and rejuvenation take over. The person feels recharged and re-energized.

Headaches, body pains, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and other stress-related symptoms vanish with regular treatment.

Those who feel burned out will also be happy with the results.

Many people are so satisfied with the results that they undergo mind spa therapy weekly as part of their personal stress management program.

One patient says, “I felt very light and relaxed, as if I was peacefully floating in the air on in water.”

You, too, can feel the same way through mind spa therapy. It’s one of the foolproof ways to start the new year right.
