ASSC - Meditation Workshops in Chicago
Power of Meditation
The mind is one of the most powerful tools on the earth, and the enormous power it holds greatly influences our health, both mentally and physically. Have you been upset about something within your personal life? You have raised your blood pressure which leads to negative vibes and tension. Meditation is the practice of gaining awareness of your surroundings, focusing your mind, and acquiring perspective of all the good in life. Meditation trains your mind and body to become one through thoughts, emotions, and feelings, to embrace them and not turn them off. You learn to examine what you perceive and then gain an understanding of what is truly going on.
When you hear about meditation, you may have a misconception about its spiritual applications. Though meditation is known for its ability to connect oneself with their surroundings, it actually boasts numerous health benefits for those who practice it. We are going to look at major reasons meditation and meditation workshops with Advanced Spine, and Sports Care will benefit your mental and physical health!
Meditation for Pain Control
The feeling of pain both physically and mentally is perceived through the brain and how we are; our state of mind is directly impacted. Studies have shown that those who experience pain and have meditated for just 4 days show an increase in activity of areas of the brain that control pain, reporting less sensitivity to pain. These studies are showing that those who meditate have a greater ability to cope with and get over pain easier. Not only can meditation assist with short bursts of pain, but chronic pain as well when used alongside chiropractic care.
Whether it is a stressful work environment, home-life, or another factor, stress reduction is one of the main reasons that people consider and take part in meditation. Stress causes an increase of the hormone cortisol, which produces harmful effects like anxiety, depression, and disrupted sleep. Studies are constantly proving that meditation reduces the amount of stress one undergoes and how one responds to it in the future.
If you have high levels of stress on a daily basis and find that your daily and nightly activities are disrupted by it, mediation is one of the strongest stress relievers that is available to people. Not only will meditation reduce your stress, but you will feel healthier and happier with those around you. Improve your sleep, mood, and energy levels with mediation.
Decrease blood pressure
High blood pressure is extremely dangerous. It makes your heart worker extra hard and can lead to heart disease. Not only that, but an increased level in your blood pressure ran the risk of heart attacks and strokes in the future. A few minutes of meditation each day in the morning and in the evening can reduce your blood pressure significantly, allowing you to live a longer and healthier life.
An Easy Guide to Meditation at Home
Meditation may seem like a difficult thing to grasp, but it is actually pretty easy, and once you have the hang of it, we guarantee your body is going to thank you. It can be difficult for beginners to sit for hours with a clear and empty mind and not think about anything. When you are at home, sometimes all you need is some calming music and a quiet place to focus and get down to it. The best way to start any meditation session is to control and focus your breathing, deep breaths in and deep breaths out.
There are few techniques of meditation you can explore at home:
Concentration Meditation- Focus on a single point. Concentration meditation is the practice of focusing on just one thing; it could be your breathing, staring at a candle, or repeating a single word. All you do is focus on the single object or thing in your mind, allowing everything else to flow away.
Mindfulness Meditation- This type of meditation encourages the person to welcome your thoughts but not to get involved or judge them. All you have to do is let the peace flow through your head and learn to develop inner peace and simply be aware of what is going through your head. Though there are many different techniques of meditation, we recommend choosing the one that best suits you and your needs and finds a way to truly relax as you embrace your thoughts.
Meditation Workshop Classes in Chicago
It is the idea that Physical, Chemical, and Emotional components affect all disease processes that sets the doctors at Advanced Spine & Sports Care apart from your traditional chiropractic office. Mental health is a very important part of the process. Without mental clarity, it’s difficult to gain the entire benefit of chiropractic. One of the ways that our office helps our patients with mental clarity is by hosting Chicago meditation workshops. Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind to either realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without being focused on it. The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that include techniques that are designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force. It often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease in many health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and pain.
At Advanced Spine and Sports Care, we host a meditation workshop in Chicago every 6 weeks. We hold it in our clinic for our patients and their guests. We have found that people gain a sense of calm and lower stress levels. Check us out to see what chiropractic and meditation can do for you! Call us or stop in today!
