In March you can't help to think about the idea of Luck. Our patients here at ilumina constantly amaze us with their willingness to work hard and follow complex treatment plans, and wonderful things have happened because of their willingness, determination and trust in our practitioners. My wish is the greatest LUCK to you.
Here are five ways to curb your stress level today and to help you feel lucky:
1. Acupuncture is effective in treating the many facets of woman's health and getting to the root cause of health concerns. Acupuncture takes down inflammation in the body and stress levels naturally and effectively.
Meditation is a great way to relax your mind and help ease stress and tension. On every Wednesday night of the month,
Dr. Dana Siekman-Price DOM, L.Ac., the owner of ilumina, offers a meditation class.
3. Sleep is important 6-8 hours of sleep is the recommended hours to maintain good health.
4. Take a deep, mindful breath throughout the day. Taking a nice big belly breath in the midst of your day can increase oxygen, and take down your stress levels.
5. Exercise: Daily cardio & a brisk walk can help blood flow, and help decrease glucose levels in the body.
We are honored to offer weekly meditation classes guided by Dr. Dana Siekman-Price. The meditation practices are Vajrayana Buddhist based that have been handed down to Dana Siekman-Price from her teacher
Lama Tsultrim Allione in a stream originating from the Buddha and other meditation masters, specifically Machig Labdron an 11th century great female master.
Currently, we are offering on a rotating schedule Shamatha meditation from the lineage of Machig Labdron and Prajnaparamita which mixes space with the awareness of breath and group
Feeding Your Demons (FYD). FYD is a guided practice developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione that works with difficult emotions, habits and thought patterns. Both of these meditation practices are effective for calming the mind and reducing stress and are suitable for beginner and experienced mediators. Please note that it is not necessary to be or become a Buddhist to participate.
