Relaxation and Grounding Techniques with Aortic Hope

Relaxation and Grounding Techniques...Katie Moran, LMT

The largest concept to integrate is that we can learn to live relaxed. Living a relaxed lifestyle enables us to create a reality every day that we do not need to escape from. Constant input from the universe, society, and our own self-care choices can contribute to our wellness… or our un-wellness.

Some options for living relaxed… A journey through the senses!!!

👃 Scent:

  • Some Sedative Aromatherapy: Chamomile, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Jasmine, Lavender, Mandarin, Marjoram, Melissa, Neroli, Rose, Valerian, Ylang Ylang

  • Pranayama (conscious breath) Alternate nostril breathing and cooling breath (boat tongue) are a couple of techniques.

👀 Sight:

  • Create a clutter-free environment at home and at work.

  • Experience nature… place a photo of nature somewhere you will see it often.

  • Light a candle to set the ambiance for yourself.

👅 Taste:

  • The ambiance and calm consciousness while eating set space for sacred nourishment.

  • A routine of when we eat and regulating how much we eat is important for a regular and relaxed digestive system.

  • Eat a balanced diet of anti-inflammatory foods.

  • Drink more H20!!!!!!

🤚 Touch:

  • Abhyanga aka Self-massage helps to gently move lymph in towards the lymph nodes… Use an oil that feels good for you and the season. Move from distal to medial.

  • Restorative Yoga, Practice moving into comfort… rest and digest.

  • Reiki is a great self-care tool for relaxation

👂 Sound:

  • Positive self-talk… Affirmations in the mirror WITH eye contact AND conviction!!! Example: “I am enough”

  • Calm music, nature sounds, and vibrational sound therapy, also… silence is golden.
