How this session can help you
We cannot underestimate the impact of stress on absolutely every system of the body - cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, nervous - the list goes on.
Research has shown that just 20 minutes in nature can significantly reduce your levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and immersing the body in cold water boosts dopamine (feel good hormone) levels.
Social interaction can lighten your mood and make you feel happier. It lower's your risk of dementia, promotes a sense of safety, belonging and security.
And it allows you to confide in others and let them confide in you.
A wealth of evidence shows humans share the fundamental need to interact with others to contribute to our wellbeing.
Improved Quality of Life
Taking time out from your daily routine to recharge very often drained batteries has an impact not only on our physical health but our mental and emotional wellbeing too.
This impacts and improves our relationships with others - you cannot pour from an empty cup, taking care of yourself ultimately takes care of the people you love the most.
