Mindful Health Practices

I just read an article on a study done by the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, on how mindful meditation programs help reduce depression, anxiety and pain. Many people think of meditation as a means to relax, unwind or balance out in some aspect. It's becoming more and more popular in the practice of helping clients with pain issues.

Mindful meditation programs can be incorporated to many different fields in this great industry. If you don't already have a meditation room set up, you can offer meditation classes on certain days and block out a room for that purpose. You can lead group sessions literally anywhere in your office that you can comfortably fit people.

The beauty is that aside from someone to lead the meditations and participants, you don't need to spend an arm and a leg on products to make it effective.

Here are some great cost effective items to get you started:

Music:
Shakuhachi Meditation Music 2 CD Set 
Meditation CD
Global Journey Meditation CD by Global Journey UK
Inner Balance CD by Tron Syversen


General Ambiance Ideas:
Salt Lamps
Yoga Mats- always comfy for sitting or lying meditations
Tibetan Singing Bowls
Citrine Druse with Wood Base
Various Buddha Items

The most amazing product you can get to create a truly unique experience for your clients:

Scent Linq Professional Scent Diffusion System - for Reception Areas, Lobbies, Relaxation Rooms and other Larger Open Indoor Spaces by Scent Linq
This may be one of the best products to come along. Forget essential oil diffusers, candles, plug ins or sprays (and it's more cost effective!)...you can fill any space with scents created by master perfumers from Europe. Hand picked for the spa industry, the scents are not perfumes or oils but essences. Think about your own experiences with scent memory and take a look at how this product can help create an undeniable link between your clients and your business.
