DEALING WITH HOLIDAY STRESS: EMOTIONAL RELEASE TECHNIQUES 

If the thought of dealing with holiday stress makes you want to pull the covers over your head and take a long winter’s nap, then check out our 4 emotional release techniques that will help you glide through the holidays and stay relaxed all winter long.

 

Emotional Release Techniques

1. Awareness Is The First Step:

The moment you feel stressed, close your eyes, and scan your body from your feet to the top of your head. Notice where stress is manifesting. As our bodies constrict, we cut off the flow to our precious life force energy or chi causing pain, migraines, and shallow breathing. Take a moment to breathe deeply into any areas that feel tight, and stretch to open and release any stress your body may be holding. Also, consider the energy around you. Making your home, office, and car feel like a sanctuary supports your emotional balance and infuses you with good energy throughout your day.

 

2. Mediate and BREATHE 

We’ve all heard that theoretically meditation helps us live calmer, more peace centered lives. Well it’s time to make it practical! Here’s a meditation you can do to deal with holiday stress in a board room, at a cocktail party, or on your commute. Breathe deeply into your stomach counting silently from 1- 5. Hold your breathe for 5, and then exhale for a count of 5 and continue for one minute. This simple emotional release technique sends messages to your brain that instantly reboot your nervous system.

 

3. Choose Power Foods

Give yourself the ultimate holiday gift by choosing foods that will leave you feeling calm, light, and energized. Eating foods in their most natural state delivers a symbiotic relationship of nutrients to the body and mind. Embracing a proper food combining diet also helps with speedy digestion and keeping the physical channels clear is one of the best ways of dealing with holiday stress. Green juice, avocado salads, smoothies, sweet potatoes with real butter and pumpkin pie spice are all foods that flood our bodies with vitamins, give us energy and can comfort us on a cold winter’s night.

 

4. Redefining Movement

The reason exercise is so good for us is that it helps to move all systems in the body and bring healing oxygen to our cells. Besides exercise, consider other physical techniques to get the lymph and digestive system flowing. Massage, lymphatic dry body brushing, cranio-sacral therapy , and colon cleansing nyc are all excellent ways to keep illness and holiday weight gain at bay by clearing the body’s pathways and restoring vital energy to all systems.

 

No matter where your holidays may bring you this season, take these 4 simple holiday stress relievers with you. Using subtle emotional release techniques while nurturing your body will insure that you can experience the real peace, love, and joy of this season.

Enjoy the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage with Dry Brushing and Rebounding

Did you know the benefits of lymphatic drainage include keeping your immune system strong and speedily moving toxins and pathogens out of your body? It is key to understand that the lymph system only moves through motion and exercise and not on its own – so you’ve gotta shake it in order to stay healthy and clean! Dry skin brushing and rebounding are some effective and fun tools to help increase lymphatic drainage – imagine getting rid of a sore throat simply by jumping on a trampoline!

Build and maintain a strong immune system w/ dry skin brushing & rebounding!!

What Are Your Lymph Nodes?

The lymphatic system is composed of lymph, a clear fluid made of white and red blood cells, moving intracellularly to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your cells and remove waste, toxins, and other pathogens. After circulating through your cells and tissue, the lymph fluid travels through lymph capillaries and then to lymph nodes. The lymph nodes revitalize the lymph fluid with new white blood cells (lymphocytes) before sending the lymph fluid back to repeat the process. Also, the lymph nodes filter out the waste from the lymph fluid and send it into the bloodstream resulting in the best benefit of lymphatic drainage: waste exiting the body for good through the main organs of elimination, namely, the colon, skin, kidneys, and lungs.

The Lymphatic System

 

Where Are Your Lymph Nodes?

Do you know where your lymph nodes are? There are 500-600 bean-sized lymph nodes in your body and they are found in the neck, chest, underarms, abdomen, groin, and knees. It is important for your health to use lymphatic drainage tools and techniques wherever your lymph nodes are for maximum benefit.

A benefit of lymphatic drainage and circulation is the prevention of poor health and disease. A clogged lymph system and compromised nodes could contribute to the following ailments, which most often affect areas where your lymph nodes are found.

     * Allergies

     * Arthritis

     * Chronic Sinusitis/Tonsillitis/Ear Infections

     * Constipation

     * Eczema And Other Skin Conditions

     * Edema

     * Heart Disease

     * Gum Disease/Halitosis

     * Lupus

     * Multiple Sclerosis

     * Obesity

     * Puffy Eyes

     * Repetitive Parasitic Infections

     * Yeast Infections

The Lymphatic System & Location Of Lymph Nodes

Tools for Reaping the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage

1.  Dry Skin Brushing: Brushing your skin with a stiff bristle dry brush (always toward your heart) before taking a shower is a great way to move your lymph fluid and receive lymphatic drainage benefits. Brush your skin with two quick long strokes up your limbs and down your torso, always moving toward your heart. Make sure to brush gently on sensitive skin areas. Also, you can brush your skin more firmly behind your knees, inner thighs, and underarms where your lymph nodes are located. 

We recommend the Tampico dry skin brush from Yerba Prima! Get your lymph flowing!

 

2.  Rebounding: Have fun by jumping at least 10 minutes a day on a Cellerciser mini-trampoline for lymphatic drainage benefits! The bouncing motion increases the circulation of lymph fluid through the tissue and nodes, which means more efficient waste removal. 

We LOVE and Recommend the Cellerciser from Dave Hall! Get your groove on while flushing that lymph!

Colonics Aid In Expediting Lymphatic Drainage Benefits

When the lymph system is sluggish and backed up with waste, you will hasten the benefits of lymphatic drainage by coupling the dry brushing and rebounding with colonics, which will accelerate the removal of waste accumulated in the bloodstream. The more quickly you remove waste from the body, the more rapidly you unburden your lymph system and recover. At LYT, here in buzzing New York City, we believe that colonics are the best and most efficient waste removal therapy available!
