April is National Stress Awareness Month, and we think that being aware of your stress, and knowing different ways to manage it is important. Stress is very serious, and if not dealt with can lead to health problems. Here are five ways that you can use your VASA membership to decrease your stress:
Muscles feeling sore? Need a massage but, let’s be honest, life is busy and it’s hard to find the time? We got you! Our Hydromassage beds are an amazing way to kick back, relax and let the stress slip away. The sessions are ten minutes,making it easy to fit in everyone’s busy schedule. Regular massage sessions may reduce anxiety, stress, and relieve pain.
Make sure that you try out the Sauna to help reduce your stress next time you are at the gym. The heated room will do more then just relax your muscles and make you feel amazing. Benefits of regular Sauna use may include: improved cardiovascular health, stress relief, detox and more.
Want to decrease tension and release endorphins? Weightlifting (and exercise in general) can help you do that! Endorphins are a chemical in your brain, that when they are released they can help reduce pain, and increase positivity and overall sense of “feeling good”. Get toned and relieve your stress, win-win!
Kid.. Care. A place where your kids can go, have fun and you can focus on yourself for up to 90 minutes a day. Do we really need to say more?
Everyone associates Yoga with stress relief but why? Yoga is all about breathing, and being in the moment. That is huge for managing stress. In a world where we are staring at a screen all day, and have a thousand things on our minds all the time, imagine an hour where all that is on your mind is your well being and body? It’s a great way to tune the world out, and tune into your health and wellness. Plus on April 27th, VASA is having a special Restorative Stretch Yoga class at all locations. This event will be followed by a Fitness Coach coming in and giving tips and pointers on stretching and why it’s important. This event is FREE for everyone, so bring your friends and come enjoy some Restorative Yoga.
