Refreshing your tired old wellness routine can be as simple as embracing the healing power of water or becoming more aware of your breath. Try adding Epsom salts or lavender to your home bathtub for a restorative soak, or discovering Watsu, as well as the cedar tubs at SunWater Spa in Manitou Springs, Colorado, to naturally boost your wellness regime.
The 30- or 60-minute Watsu sessions are a gentle and supportive form of body therapy combining elements of joint mobilization, shiatsu, stretching and dance. Without the weight of the body, the spine, joints and muscles can be manipulated and freed in a way unique to water work.
SunWater Spa’s tubs are filled with mineral water from the famous Seven Minute Spring, the same water that flows from the Manitou Karst aquifer. The health-giving waters from the aquifer filter through deep underground cracks, crevasses and rock faults, infusing the water through its journey with the highly sought-after health-granting minerals.
Discovering breathwork, including meditation, is another way to recharge your wellness routine. Science has shown that mediation, the process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts, helps with stress and anxiety while helping you to concentrate. An abundance of apps, including the free, Insight Timer, and Headspace, are available to help you develop your practice.
Or, consider, the Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation Workshop at SunWater Spa, scheduled for June 2. According to Ros Prado, Events and Classes Manager at the spa, “The practice of meditation and mindfulness allows us to sit with the present moment by bringing our awareness to our thoughts and our breath. It is through this daily practice that we can retrain the brain to return to the present whenever life pulls us away from our true nature of absolute consciousness and knowledge.”
