A new weekly guided relaxation group has been set up in Haywards Heath, aiming to improve mental well-being by providing the space and time to rest and unwind away from the stresses and strains of 21st century living.
Andrea Aro uses a blend of guided visualisation, calming breathing techniques and gentle progressive muscle relaxation to lead participants in to a state of deep rest.
When practised regularly, participants enjoy a noticeable reduction to their symptoms of long-term stress.
Sessions are suitable for all and no experience is necessary.
Andrea said: “Very few of us are left untouched by the tension and stress in our lives – whether you work as part of the emergency services, are a teacher, a driven professional, busy working mother, single parent, unappreciated carer, pressured student or the recently retired – many of us become aware of the uncomfortable and sometimes distressing symptoms of unremitting stress.”
The group meets each Thursday evening at Lamb House in Haywards Heath.
