Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2015
A new holistic wellness center, inner(be)., is opening, and will offer reiki treatment, aromatherapy services and free meditation sittings. The center is located at 10330-Z Lake Road in Houston, in the serene and secluded Pin Oak Business Park. The building is surrounded by trees, brick paths, sparkling water features and wooden benches - exactly what a frazzled employee needs to get their stress levels down and their productivity up.
The center's goal is to help people be more balanced in body, mind and soul, and happier and healthier in their lives. Reducing stress is, of course, a big piece of that. Stress is expensive. The World Health Organization estimates that workplace stress costs US businesses $300 BILLION each year. That's not even factoring in the toll on personal health, relationships, and quality of life for the chronically stressed. Houston is also ranked as #11 of the top most-stressed major metropolitan areas in the nation. We need help.
So here's the planned arsenal, for all stress-busting Happiness Warriors:
Meditation, It isn't a magic stress-curing pill (well, maybe...), but it CAN build internal resilience and increase focus and personal balance. Aetna conducted research a few years ago, and found that just one hour of meditation-type activity a week reduced employee stress by a third and decreased health-related costs by $2000 per employee per year (http://bigthink.com/amped/meditation-is-the-new-yoga-bringing-mindfulness-into-the-workplace). Aetna was so impressed by those results they began two programs for in-house mindfulness/meditation for businesses.
Aromatherapy. A complementary alternative therapy utilized by people for thousands of years to heal their bodies, minds and spirits. It has been shown to reduce stress, decrease pain and improve overall quality of life (http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/evidence-based-aromatherapy-stress-relief-and-much-more). Used properly, blends of oils can address multiple aspects of a patient's life, helping bring balance to the body to speed healing and increase overall well-being.
Reiki, An energy healing modality used around the world to bring people's natural energy back into excellent condition and clear out past pain. It is used in hospitals around the world to help reduce pain and discomfort in patients (http://www.reiki.org/reikinews/reiki_in_hospitals.html).
Used in synergy - that's some serious stress-busting mojo.
This is where inner(be). aims to transform lives, our community, and the world. One stressed, sick, frustrated person at a time - utilizing the tools found in nature and our own minds.
