Meditation is merely intentional thought and breath. We are meditating all day long when we are running through our “to do” lists. Switch this up with just a couple minutes a day of focused thought and breath on what brings you ease. Each breath in is a chance to reset, each breath out is a moment to let go. Continue this until you can slowly increase your time practicing.

What does that mean? Simply, it is the ability to create an effect that is greater than the sum of the individual effects. When you combine services, you can truly be enveloped in a full mind, body, and spiritual experience. Holistic practices allow the connection of your whole being.  These two services alone are amazing but combined can truly multiply the benefits.
